Northern Morocco...

Tangier, the port city, only 20 miles away from Spain has long been a refuge for European expats, attracted by a libertine spirit that lasted for thirty years. It still emanates a certain sex appeal, the Morocco exotism demonstrates its chanting appeal to international travelers. Nostalgy and avant-garde play together in Tangier; iconic cafés and tiny shops contrast with a first-class marina and the second logistics port of Africa.

White perched houses overlooking the seafront, Tangier is a labyrinthine medina with sneaky tiny streets, a lively and impressive food market and Moorish rich flavors coming out at every step.  

Undeniably, everyone first timer in Tangier craves for visiting the Blue Pearl. Chefchouen, in its blue allure since the 15th century will make the perfect day trip. The same happens with Asilah, the fortress fishing town where only foot traffic is allowed offers an extraordinary creative impulse. Definitely, an art lovers destinations with galleries spread all over the town, and it is great for shopping towels, striped rugs, and bedspreads hanging and exposed all over.

Celebratory food is an intrinsic episode of this journey, and you will discover traditions reflected on the different varieties of tagine, fish preparations, and bread. Moroccan recipes are proud secrets embedded in families, transferred by word of mouth from generation to generation and unrevealed.

Find yourself at the crossroads of two continents, two seas and two motions.

Day 3

Tangier - Asilah - Cap Estel - Tangier

ASILAH

Today explore the western coastal area of Tangier. You’ll go to Asilah, the Blue City of northern Morocco, a lovely fortified fishing town 20 miles from Tangier. White house, pastel colors and lots of arts boutiques, this photogenic medina on the Moroccan coast will captivate you at first sight. The Bab El Bhar gate (gate of the sea) is one of the main entrances to the medina, and welcoming you there is a busy fruit market. Behind its threshold we immerse ourselves in a dizzying flow of time: cars, no motorcycles, and no nods to the technical 21st century. With illustrated neighbors, art is very present in Asilah, there are several galleries, cultural centers and artists who seek refuge and inspiration under the shelter of its walls - Paul Bowles himself had a house here.

CAPE ESPARTEL

After lunch in the best restaurant, on the way back to Tangier you will stop in Cap Espartel and the Cave of Hercules, an intriguing cave complex steeped in myths and legends. The lighthouse at Cape Espartel is illuminating the strait for more than a century and a half. The cape is also special because the waters of the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean meet. Along with Cape Malabata, at the other side, Espartel constitutes one of the most recognizable geographical points around Tangier.

Free evening on your last night in Tangier.

Day 4

Tangier - Chefchaouen - Tetouan - Tangier

CHEFCHAOUEN, THE BLUE CITY

Ready for an exciting road trip of exploration in northern Morocco. Head to Chefchaouen - or Chaouen, as it’s sometimes called -nestled in the Riff mountains, an outrageously picturesque blue-walled city. Settled in the 15th century, Chefchaouen has been home to Moorish and Jewish populations, now it is an artsy, bucolic charming city.

TETOUAN

After lunch, on the way back to Tangier, stop by Tetouan, one could say it is almost an extension of the last white towns of Cádiz. Coquettish Tetouan is the best kept secret in Morocco and without a doubt an infallible claim for all lovers of the most chic bohemian and virgin beaches. The reason for its nickname the "white dove", lies on the immaculate whitewashed of its Medina and the unmistakable merengue tone of the 20th century Spanish buildings, which abound in the new part of the city, and once again recall the ties that unite us. Enjoy walking through six centuries of history in one day across this faithfully preserved medina off the Moroccan tourist circuit.

Last free evening in Tangier.
