Just over the Strait of Gibraltar from Spain, Tangier offers a captivating snapshot of life on the Maghreb coast.

While cities such as Marrakesh and Fes get the glory, Tangier offers a different snapshot of Morocco ­– one spiked with Spanish flavours and a crisp sea breeze. The city feels as European as it does African, located further north than its popular counterparts. Its history is an international one, and its cuisine has a multicultural flair that’s unrivalled in the region, with a little bit of Mediterranean, a touch of Arabic, and a dash of European. Just outside the city’s limits lie the wonders of the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts, with Cap Spartel marking Africa’s most north-western point.

Highlights of Morocco

An old medina in Morocco Tangier streets facing sea area

Wander through the Tangier Medina

You can forget the map as you walk the streets of Tangier’s medina – to really experience these streets, you’ll want to get lost wandering the labyrinth of sights and sounds. Despite being a popular attraction, the medina has managed to maintain an air of Moroccan authenticity, with locals still living and shopping in the area.

Explore the Caves of Hercules

According to legend, the caverns below Cap Spartel are the very same caves that Hercules slept in during his labours. Naturally formed but extended by human hands throughout history, you can look out from the great halls through the seaside opening, where a map of Africa outlines the Atlantic waters.

Morocco local mint tea at Tangier

Excursions and experiences

 

 

Each of our tailored itineraries is sprinkled with what we call 'Peregrine Moments', those special experiences you'll only have while travelling in a small group with one of our local leaders. Here are just a few of the experiences you'll share in Morocco.

  • Visit Cafe Hafa to try its famous mint tea. This Tangier institution has drawn the likes of William S Burroughs and Mick Jagger, and retains its original 1920s charm.

  • Travel to Cap Spartel where the iconic lighthouse marks the meeting point of the Strait of Gibraltar and the North Atlantic.

  • Visit the Hercules Caves to see where the Greek hero rested during his labours. The cave opening that resembles a map of Africa never fails to astound.
