Day 1 Lisbon
Day 2 Lisbon
Today, enjoy a full-day tour of the city's most important districts, from the waterfront Baixa to the rambling heights of Bairro Alto. After lunch, head out to Belém to visit Jerónimos Monastery and the elaborate Torre de Belém.
Day 3 Lisbon
Venture outside of Lisbon to explore nearby Sintra, believed by Portugal's ancient Celts to be a place of mystical power. The occult-inspired Quinta da Regaleira reflects that belief in its mythological symbolism and hidden grottoes. You can also enjoy towering views from the Palácio da Pena and Palácio Nacional, then eat lunch in town before heading back to Lisbon.
Day 4 The Atlas Mountains
Continue your adventure today as you fly south across the Mediterranean to Marrakesh in Morocco. A driver will be waiting to take you from the airport directly into the High Atlas Mountains to a relaxing kasbah-hotel where you can soak up the views.
Day 5 The Atlas Mountains
There will be time to explore more sweeping scenery today on a guided hike through the Ourika Valley with a guide. The hiking routes vary from easy to difficult, so your guide can tailor the hike to suit you. En route, stop in a traditional village to spend some time with a local family in their home, sharing stories over a cup of mint tea.
Day 6 Marrakesh
Today you will travel back to Marrakesh and your riad, which is located in the heart of the medina. Spend the afternoon relaxing on the roof terrace or venture out to explore the souqs.
Day 7 Marrakesh
Enjoy a full-day tour of Marrakesh, visiting the main historical sites such as the Koutoubia Mosque, the Saadien Tombs, Bahia Palace and the Jewish Quarter. The afternoon will be focused on the cultural side of the city, winding your way through the different artisan areas within the souqs. End the day with dinner in the Djemaa el Fna, which comes alive with food stalls, henna artists, scribes and musical performers each evening.
