You've admired the beauty of Morocco through the iconic lenses of film's greatest directors and cinematographers. Get ready to start rolling your own camera with this week's Escape from Encounters Travel, where you'll star in a ten-day guided excursion for one person based on double occupancy from Marrakech through the stunning Atlas Mountains and Sahara Desert ($2,146 or $2,248 depending on departure date*).

Lights, camera, action on a package that includes round-trip flights between JFK and Marrakech international airports and an exciting itinerary that provides for all hotel accommodations, eight breakfasts, one lunch, and seven dinners, all transports and transfers including a 4WD desert jeep safari and 24-hour airport arrival-and-departure services, English-speaking tour guides, and entrance fees to all stated monuments and attractions.

After your first evening in Marrakech, move your set on-location to the iconic Koutoubia Mosque and spend the afternoon exploring the bustling streets surrounding Jemaa el Fna Square.

Drive past the paths of acting legends with a tour through the highest pass of North Africa at Mount Toubkal. Take an epic tour of the dramatic landscape of Ourazazate where iconic Academy Award-winning films were shot. Then experience star-quality treatment during an overnight in the Ouarzazate Hotel.

Later, cross-cut fairy-tale chic with wild wonderment with a jaunt along the Road of a Thousand Kasbahs before arriving in Boulmane followed by romps amid natural wonders like the Dades Canyon, boasting incredible desert views that fade into the distance outside your Saghro Hotel window.

Far from the city lights, you'll want to maximize your star-gazing potential with a night spent in a traditional Berber camp after a day touring Todra Gorge. Ride through the desert in your 4WD safari jeep or—for a truly authentic experience—on a camel at sunset for an additional fee.

Continue to add sparkle to your sojourn by venturing into Rissani––the birthplace of the Alaouite Dynasty and Morocco's current royal family—before topping off your visit with a stay in the Palais Asmas Hotel.

After circling back to Marrakech through the Draa Valley and bounding over the Tizi N'tichka col, capture a final free day in Marrakech where you'll hunt for souvenirs in city's bustling bazaars, take an aerial shot of your surroundings on a spectacular hot air balloon flight, or bond with your castmates on a quad-bike ride through the desert.

Cut and print: With an epic Escape like this, you'll have a highlight reel of life-changing moments to watch again and again for years to come.

*Departure dates include: September 7 ($2,146), September 14 ($2,248), October 12 ($2,248), October 26 ($2,248), November 9 ($2,146), November 23 ($2,249), and December 7 ($2,248).

  • "Marrakech defies mapping, logic, and time. One minute you're immersed in Jemaa el Fna Square's drum-thudding, monkey-juggling theatrics; the next you're slipping behind a door to a riad where fountains burble and birds twitter in the pomegranate trees."
