I am still pumped from my Morocco vacation with tour company G Adventures. This was a truly memorable experience and I am blessed to have crossed another destination off my bucket list.
Why vacation in Morocco?
Morocco is diverse in adventure, culture and heritage. A vacation to Morocco can include mountain trekking, surfing and swimming coastal on beaches or my favorite a camel ride through the Sahara Desert sand dunes. Delve into history when you visit imperial cities like Marrakech and Fes, where you will visit palaces, churches, mosques and museums.

Highlights from my vacation in Morocco
Camel ride through the Sahara Sand dunes
As I mentioned, riding a camel through the sand dunes of the Sahara Desert was incredible! It felt and looked like something out of a movie. You will want to bring your camera because the pictures are surreal. The Sahara Desert is on Morocco’s far east border, so there is considerable travel time needed tomake it to the desert from a major city, but IT IS TOTALLY WORTH IT!
Fes is the second largest city in Morocco and is the world’s largest car-free urban area. A city that is unique in food, music, and architecture! The government has started restoring crumbling riads and an innovative food scene is making Fes a popular destination in Morocco.
A trip to the Fes bazaar is a “must do” and with 1500 passageways, I recommend a guide. Fes is well known for its leather products and traditional leather tanning practices. In fact, the Chouara Tannery is almost a thousand years old! If you take a tour of the tanneries, be warned that the smell can be overwhelming! The tanning process makes use of cow urine and pigeon poop! It is fascinating to see the entire tanning process though.
