Southern Spain and Morocco

  • The Savvy Traveler 112 5th Ave S EDMONDS United States (map)

Discover two enchanting countries, geographically separated by the Gibraltar Strait; yet intimately connected through their shared Moorish history. Join Genevieve Hathaway, Founder of Archaeo Adventures Tours, on a photographically stunning journey through the highlights of southern Spain and the best of Morocco. Southern Spain, often referred to as the Andalusia region, is rich in history and culture. Marvel at the spectacular architecture of Seville, Granada and Cordoba, heavily influenced by the North African Moors. Enjoy tapas crawls, flamenco, sherry, and stunning sandy beaches. Then it's across the Gibraltar Strait to the port town of Tangier, the northern tip of Morocco. Ancient medinas and towering mosques dominate city skylines. The mighty Sahara desert, white-capped rugged peaks of the High Atlas Mountains and turquoise waters of the Mediterranean provide breathtaking views. Explore Morocco's color-coordinated Imperial cities (Fez, Marrakech, Casablanca and Chefchaouen), get off the beaten path in the massive sand sea of the Sahara, listen to the melodious call to prayer echoing through towns, and dine on some of the best cuisine in North Africa. In this presentation, learn about the highlights from these two regions and the best ways to combine them in a trip.
