The Destination
From the heat of the teeming marketplaces in Marrakech to the cool climes of Berber villages in the Atlas Mountains, Morocco is a land of dizzying extremes. But for adventurous travelers looking for the ride of a lifetime, a trip through this North African country is nothing but high notes.

Lose yourself in the labyrinthine streets of Marrakech, where medieval history continues to define the frenetic present. Cultural landmarks—including the Koutoubia Mosque and Jemaa el-Fna square—help set the stage, but it's the stalls and alleys of the Medina marketplace where the real show takes place, as residents haggle over everything from cuisine to crafts.

Outside the city the atmosphere is far more serene. Starting with the sand-swept Sahara all the way to the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, the landscape holds treasures of all varieties, from the captivating kasbahs in the fortified city of Alt Benhaddou to the jaw-dropping natural scenery of Dades Canyon and Tondra Gorge.

From its kasbahs and markets to its deserts and mountains, Morocco is meant to be explored. See this North African gem's fascinating landscapes with this nine-day trip courtesy of Goway Travel.
