7 Nights sample itinerary: 3nts Marrakech & 4nts High Atlas Mountains
Morocco is a country of contrasts and visiting just one place really can’t give you the full experience. What could be better, then than to combine two such different destinations in one exciting holiday? Twin centre holidays to Marrakech and the Atlas mountains provide diverse destinations for your Morocco holiday .
Marrakech is one of Morocco’s most vibrant and exciting cities. It presents the visitor with a full-on assault to the senses – vibrant colours, a cacophony of noise, exotic aromas – as the ever-changing tableau of human activity unfolds before you.
Jemaa el Fna Square is at the heart of the medina a hive of bustling activity, crammed with street vendors, stalls and entertainers. Snake-charmers, musicians and fortune-tellers vie for trade with those selling delicious local specialties to tempt your palate. The souq is a labyrinth of stalls and workshops where age-old traditional crafts are practiced.
There are so many sights to see and places to visit that you may feel you are spoiled for choice. The constant hubbub of activity is exhilarating but also tiring, which is why it makes sense to plan to combine a little time for relaxing with your stay in Marrakech. That way you can have an exciting holiday but also return home refreshed with your batteries fully recharged.
What could be better than to combine the hustle and bustle of the city, with the serene and tranquil beauty of the High Atlas Mountains. The contrast between the busy city and the dramatic mountain scenery could not be greater.
Going from the narrow streets of the medina to the endless mountain vistas is an incredible experience – especially given the fact that it is only approximately an hour’s drive away. When in the mountains, you will have the opportunity to relax and soak up the sun with a good book or spend your time walking, rambling through the beautiful countryside and discovering the fascinating local Berber culture and history.

Marrakech is often the first port of call for any visitor to Morocco, its magnificent architecture off-set by the stunning backdrop of the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains. It is a great place to soak up the atmosphere of the country, bright colours, fragrant spices, the hustle and bustle of everyday life all combining to form a veritable symphony for the senses.
High Atlas Mountains
The High Atlas Mountains form the backdrop to Marrakech, some 40 miles away by road – and a world away in ambience. A holiday here is the perfect antidote to city life and to the fast pace of 21st century living. Many choose to spend their time simply relaxing by the pool with a good book, surrounded by beautiful scenery, others prefer to be out and about rambling through the countryside and enjoying long walks through the Ouirgane Valley.
