Morocco

Oct 20-31, 2021

12 days | Morocco | alumni UBC Travel Club

Looking for a taste of the exotic, fascinating urban settings, spectacular mountain and desert landscapes with delicious cuisine and comfortable boutique accommodation? Come with us to Morocco!

On our trip through this storied country, you’ll be pulled into the history behind Morocco’s architecture, a mix of Islamic, Berber, Arab, and European, and introduced to its ancient cities, sweeping deserts, and epic mountain ranges.

Highlights of your experience in Morocco will include a cooking class, lunch with a family in Fes, a night under canvas in the Sahara Desert, and an easy trek through the beautiful scenery of the High Atlas Mountains. Three-night stays in each of Fes and Marrakesh give you lots of time to explore these vibrant towns with their exotic souks.

The grand historic sites include the two-thousand-year-old ruins of Volubilis, once the outer edge of the Roman Empire, the lavish decorated gates of Meknes, and Fez, Morocco’s enthralling cultural heart. The medina here is the biggest car-free urban area in the world; the labyrinth of lanes and covered bazaars is bursting with aromatic food stalls, artisan workshops, and ancient buildings hiding treasures behind colourfully painted doors.

Stand in awe at the grand sweep of the Sahara Desert and the orange and gold of the sand dunes surrounding our desert camp. Drive the “Road of a Thousand Kasbahs” to walk in the ochre-coloured gores of Dades and Todra and explore the isolated Berber villages. In Marrakesh, discover the charming old quarter with plenty of time to get pleasantly lost and found again. Marvel at the intricate marquetry in the Bahia Palace and the iconic blue of Yves St- Laurent’s Majorelle Gardens, and enjoy the evening street theatre of Jemaa el-Fnaa Square.
