The ad­ven­tur­ous op­tion

Ten nights in Morocco for un­der £1000 is se­ri­ously good bang for your buck, es­pe­cially as this ex­cit­ing road trip takes in three dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions from Mar­rakech to Es­saouira via the At­las Moun­tains. It starts in the cen­tre of the buzzing city at Riad Dar More in the medina where you can eas­ily walk to Je­maa el-fnaa square for shop­ping in the souks or re­lax in the riad’s peace­ful ham­mam. Your next stop is Douar Samra in the At­las Moun­tains, a short taxi ride away. This beau­ti­ful guest house clings to the moun­tain­side in one of the coun­try’s high­est vil­lages, where you can hike or horse ride through WKH!GUDPDWLF!VFHQHU\"!7KH!ÀQDO!VWRS!LV!
