We know what photographers and videographers want. We know what you are looking for. And we have it for you. We have a trip called Postcard from Morocco, a trip that will make your dreams come true. If you know a little bit about Morocco, you know it has so much to offer. It has mountains, deserts, beaches and the most colorful cities you can imagine.
We want to show you the most beautiful places of Morocco during this trip, so we selected each location with care, and we know you are going to love the venues we picked. We are not completely going to share the venues with you yet, but we want to show you at least where we are going and what you can expect.
The trip will start in Marrakech. “The Pink City” for a reason and probably more colorful than any other city trip you’ll ever make. Magical, authentic and yet an upcoming city. In Marrakech, everything revolves around the Medina. Marrakech isn’t the capital of Morocco, but it is one of the imperial cities and maybe the most beloved one as well. We totally get it! It is brimming full of character, you can shop endlessly, and the food is amazing.
After the first shoot, we will continue on to the Agafay Desert. Nestled between Marrakech and the mountains is the Agafay Desert. Not a sandy, but a rocky desert. Beige dunes spread around several hundred acres. Their color perhaps the reason for the desert’s name resembling the local Berber word for ‘milk’. You’ll feel utterly remote and it’s the perfect place to unwind and let nature impress you.
On day two, we will wake up early and go to the Atlas Mountains. Trust us, you don’t want to miss this. The Atlas Mountains are spread diagonally across Morocco for almost 1000 kilometers. The views are incredible and this place really makes you feel tiny as a human being. The Berbers are the original inhabitants of these mountains and live in flat-roofed homes, made from stone and earth. When you drive in the mountains, you feel you’re getting back in time by watching their way of life that is unchanged over years.
On day three, we will continue our trip to Essaouira. Fun fact: the town’s name means “little picture” in Arabic. We can imagine why, as this bright and breezy city is every painter’s dream. Essaouira is laid-back, has a blue-and-white color scheme throughout the city and has a wide beach stretching for miles. But don’t be fooled, as the wind often blows so hard that relaxing on the beach is a challenge. Essaouira has palm-lined avenues and many art galleries, but the most special thing to watch are the fishing nets being mended and traditional boats being constructed in the hugely atmospheric port.
After Essaouira, we will continue our trip to Oualidia. Oualidia is a small town and spread around a crescent-shaped lagoon, bordered with golden sands and big rocks. The town is famous for its oysters, but as a coastal city, Oualidia has many great fish restaurants. In November, you will see migrating pink flamingos on the lagoon and surrounding coastal wetlands. This small village was off the map for many years due its somewhat isolated location. There is not much to do, but there is a great, undiscovered vibe.
The trip will end in Casablanca. Casablanca is the biggest city of Morocco. Maybe not as atmospheric as Marrakech, but the best representation of the modern nation. This is the city where money is being made, where young Moroccans come to seek a future and where creative industries meets business. There is one main visit that everyone should do: the Hassan II mosque. A 210 meters tall minaret that serve as the city’s major landmark. A showcase of the best Moroccan artisanship: marble flooring, hand-carved stone and wood, gilded cedar ceilings and amazing zellige (mosaic tilework).
