Most couples will start their honeymoon in Morocco in Marrakech. The iconic bustling city with stunningly beautiful architecture.

Take a day trip to Ouzoud Waterfalls. Head into the mountains for some hiking and trekking. Toubkal National Park is home to North Africa’s tallest mountain, Jebel Toubkal with trails suitable for both novice and expert hikers. Pass by ancient Berber villages (or as they prefer to be called Amazigh) The views of snow-capped peaks of the Atlas Mountains are more than worth it.
Explore the city of Fez (also known as Fes). The medina in this ancient city is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and you’ll find souks, riads and a thriving city without as many tourists. A honeymoon in Morocco wouldn’t be complete without taking a trip to insta-worthy Chefchaouen to marvel at the cobalt and azure blue buildings.

Ride a camel to watch the sunset and sunrise. See the Kasbah of Ouarzazate. Sleep under the blanket of a million stars and wake up to a sunrise over the endless sea of sand dunes. Magic.
