Once an old pirate lair on the Atlantic coast - the sophisticated city of Casablanca is where we'll meet to begin our intoxicating journey through Morocco. Tonight, we'll have the opportunity to get to know one another better over a delicious welcome meal at a local restaurant.

After breakfast, we'll hit the road to our first stop: Rabat, where we'll see the marble Mausoleum of Mohammed V and the similarly spectacular Hassan Tower on a guided walking tour. When we arrive in Fes, the evening will be ours to explore at our leisure or relax back at our accommodation.

Accommodation: Riad Reda (or similar)

First on the agenda today is a walking tour of Fes' maze-like medina before we move on to a Moroccan must-see: a leather tannery. We will also visit a workshop that specialises in creating a range of local artisanal products, before having the afternoon free to explore Fes at our own pace. We recommend returning to the buzzing medina and exploring the many colourful storefronts and medieval streets bursting with exotic food stands.

Today our path leads us out of the city and on a voyage through the striking, jagged landscapes of the Atlas Mountains, covering some distance as we go. We’ll pay a visit to Midelt; nestled in a valley, this golden-hued town offers breathtaking vistas of the surrounding peaks. Afterwards, our scenic journey continues towards the welcoming oasis town of Erfoud, where we’ll enjoy dinner as a group at our hotel.

Tonight’s dinner will come in the traditional form of a Berber feast, complete with local entertainment.

Rise early this morning to catch the mesmerising sunrise over the expanse of red dunes, before we set off on a day’s travel. First we’ll make the picturesque journey to the dramatic Dadès Gorge. After taking some time to explore the gorge at our own pace, we’ll make our way to the fortified village of Aït Benhaddou: a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This cluster of earthen buildings is a fascinating insight into southern Moroccan architecture. Afterwards we’ll rest for the evening in the nearby city of Ouarzazate.

We’ll begin our day uncovering the secret to cooking the perfect tagine during an included cooking class. Taking its name from the conical clay pot in which this sumptuous dish is cooked, we’ll sample our own attempts at this slow-cooked stew of meats, dried fruit and vegetables for lunch. Following this, we’ll find out more about Ouarzazate’s role on the silver screen at Atlas Film Studios, before an evening spent relaxing at our accommodation.
