Your Destinations —
Marrakech is an incredibly intriguing city, where you can explore a completely different world of exoticism, from the Jemaa El Fna, to the Menara, to any number of mosques, each uniquely designed and decorated. Visitors of this intoxicating place can also enjoy the largest souk (market place) in Morocco - this really is an experience that needs to be seen to be believed, with hundreds of small stalls selling all manner of objects, from the freshest foods, to beautiful boutiques offering lovely fabrics, pots, and decorations.
The obvious place to start is the Jemaa El Fna Square with its lively and exotic atmosphere packed with stalls, street cafes and even snake charmers! At night the square is lit and the smell of spices wafting through the streets is an experience not to be missed.
The highest mountain range in North Africa, the High Atlas runs diagonally across Morocco, from the Atlantic Coast northeast of Agadir all the way to northern Algeria, a distance of almost 1000km. In Berber it's called Idraren Draren (Mountain of Mountains) and it's not hard to see why. Flat-roofed, earthen Berber villages cling tenaciously to the valley sides, while irrigated terraced gardens and walnut groves flourish below.
Explore the spectacular mountain range running nearly the full length of eastern Morocco, and challenge yourself with a trek to the summit of its highest peak and as your breath returns you'll be rewarded by breathtaking views.

Les Borjs De La Kasbah, Marrakech - 2 nights —
This offer is based on a Standard Room on a bed and breakfast stay.
The appeal of this exclusive 'hotel de charme', opened in 2007, stems from the blend of its arabo-moorish character and contemporary refinement. No less striking is the contrast between the bustling streets of the Kasbah outside and the tranquil, intimate atmosphere within where discreet but professional service adds the finishing touch to one of the most appealing luxury spa hotels in the medina.
The 18 sound-proofed, well insulated rooms, dispersed between four separate patios, are each well appointed with bath or shower (some have both), heating and air conditioning, personal room safe, hairdryer, minibar, telephone, free Wi-Fi connection and widescreen TV with satellite channels.
In the main patio area you will find an imposing, renovated 'borj' (watchtower) set into 7m high defensive walls at the foot of which is a heated swimming pool. On one side is a south facing sunbathing terrace with loungers and parasols.
L'Arganier, the hotel spa, includes a classic, marble-clad, domed hammam and separate sauna plus two treatment rooms and a rest area, each having traditional latticed windows (menze) overlooking the swimming-pool and sun terrace.
