Rail Holidays in Morocco

The rail holidays through Morocco from Arena Rail Holidays offer the perfect opportunity to experience the beauty of northern Africa while travelling in comfort and style.

The gateway to Africa celebrates a rich history of treasure and luxury. World renowned for its shipping ports and trade routes, Morocco once held the key to global trade. Its stories and climate make the country popular with travellers, historians and holidaymakers.

Morocco by rail

Morocco boasts one of the most diverse climates in the world: ranging from the intense heat of the Moroccan Sahara to the Middle Atlas, where temperatures can drop to as low as -24C. Furthermore, its geography ranges from snowy mountains, to lush, green forests, to stone villages built upon sand. Morocco is a remarkable country and travelling across it by rail is the most immersive way to experience it.

Fantastic cities

Morocco’s largest city, Casablanca, was of course this inspiration for the 1942 film of the same name. Moroccan cities are lauded for their very western appearance in an otherwise African setting, a rather strange but brilliant spectacle. Their majestic skylines are made even more beautiful by the contrasting climate that can be seen in the city’s background.

Food and drink

Moroccan cuisine is unique, due to its influence from both Mediterranean and African settlers over time. The incorporation of spices into meat-based dishes shows Morocco’s African roots, while the prominence of couscous hints of a Spanish influence. A famous Moroccan dish is tagine, which is the name of the hearty stew as well as the interesting clay pot that it is traditionally cooked in.

Rich cultural history

With its snake charming, stone castles and open markets, the enchanted city of Marrakech resembles something out of an Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves tale. Despite the city resting upon sandy terrain, its backdrop is that of snowy mountains, making Marrakech both a cultural and visual treat.
