Morocco Travel Guide

Last month we traveled to the fascinating country of Morocco with a special group of content creators, influencers, and brands. We experienced the magic and awe of this country, taking in the bustling souks with brightly colored silks and baskets of spices, the expansive dunes of the Sahara, and the vibrant shades of blue blanketing the town of Chefchaouen. Take a look at a few of the unforgettable highlights from our Moroccan experience and see why this destination needs to be your next trip!

Wander through Fez

Fez is an UNESCO World Heritage site, and also the largest city in the world that doesn’t permit cars. Because of this, the city’s streets are famously narrow and warped, creating dusky markets that feel untouched by the passing centuries. Our Acanela artisan Rostom guided us through the maze-like passageways of this imperial city, showing us the colorful and complex tanneries of Fez and the century-old techniques that are still used today. We’ll visit the honey souks, carpet weavers, bustling markets, and maze-like passageways of this imperial city.

Explore Chefchaouen

Known for its turquoise buildings, topaz walls, and rich navy cobblestone streets, Chefchaouen is one of the most visually stunning and unique cities in all of North Africa. The markets of Morocco have been used by locals for hundreds of years and we shopped for world-famous textiles (rugs, carpets, scarves, etc.) as well as Moroccan lanterns, leather, woodwork, and pottery. Many local Artisans do not operate professional shops, choosing instead to use their homes as storefronts! By afternoon, the markets were vibrant with activity, and we ventured out into the markets to see the variety of native fruits and vegetables, handmade breads, and other local culinary delights.

Ride a camel through the Sahara

The picturesque Sahara Desert continues to capture the imaginations of people around the globe. At a small town on the edge of the desert, we embarked on a journey deep into the epic dunes of the Sahara and spent the night sleeping under the stars. Long before the sun rose above the dunes, we set our alarms for an early wake-up in order to climb a sand dune near the camp to catch the sunrise from a high vantage point. The desert was flooded with color and glorious golden light, painting the sand pastel pinks and purples before transforming into a fiery orange.
