27 Instagram Images of Northern Morocco

In September 2013 I visited northern Morocco for five incredible days. This is the second time I visited Morocco. We based ourselves in Tangier at the Dar Nour Guest House in the Medina, which gave us the ability to explore Tangier and also take day trips to the nearby cities of Tetouan, Chefchaouen, Cave of Hercules and Asilah. 

As many travelers already know, Morocco is a country of opposites: rough, friendly, dirty, elegant, grimy, sophisticated. From the possibility of a Morocco stag do in Marrakech foothills of the Atlas Mountains to an alluring adventure in Chefchaouen, the legendary “Blue City,” Morocco is a to explore. These Morocco Instagram images will hopefully inspire you to travel to one of my favorite countries in the world. Some love it, some hate it, but it’s all in the eye of the beholder.

  2. Amazing photos!
    Thanks for sharing your experience!

  3. Thank you! This and all you other reports on Tangier have really solidified our decision to spend two months there December and January (after three months in Malaga). We are living around the world 1-3 months at a time, and Morocco, well Tangier in particular, sounds wonderful. Thanks for your help. Right now we are in Cusco, Peru, after three months in Cuenca, Ecuador and six months in Pallanza, Italy. I’m looking forward to browsing all the rest of your great blog. You really do a great job of giving us a feel for a place.

    • Hi Bob, Thank you so much for dropping by and for the kind words. Your travels sound amazing and I wish you well on all your upcoming travels. If you ever want to know more about the destinations I’ve covered please feel free to reach out on Facebook, email or through the blog again.
