The African contemporary art world is presently at an exciting juncture. Marrakech, the red city of Morocco is one of its main hotspots after two highly successful editions of the 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair and the re-opening of the Museum of African Contemporary Art Al Maaden (Macaal). In Casablanca, the white city, young emerging artists are creating their own vibrant scene. We combine this with stunning ceramics and fabrics in Fez and culinary delights everywhere we go. We will also take in the breathtaking colors of the Sahara Desert. These experiences together create an unforgettable Grand Tour of Morocco, ArtTable style.

It is an easy flight into Casablanca from the US. We start with a ‘dive’ into the city’s emerging art scene with inspiring behind-the-scenes visits. We also take in the great Art Deco architecture and the splendor of one of the biggest mosques in the world. Our first Moroccan dinner is a feast of traditional dishes.

During a leisurely drive, we will explore the riches of the Northern Moroccan countryside.  We make a very special visit in Rabat, the nation’s current capital,  and also stop in what once was the capital, the amazing imperial town of Meknes. We end the day in magnificent Fez where we check into our dreamy riad hotel and enjoy a glorious dinner.

Explore the enthralling riches of Fez, the oldest imperial city of Morocco, founded in 789 AC. We tour the old town Medina (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) to enjoy the splendid artistry, colors, sounds, smells and sights. We will also visit one of the oldest traditional tanneries in town, and make some special behind-the-scenes visits.

We spend the morning with an exciting studio visit in Fez and then make our way to the airport for a short flight South. We land in Errachidia where our desert guide will be awaiting us for a thrilling ride into the desert. To get to our luxury desert camp you can choose your mode of transportation: camel or 4×4 vehicle. We will dine under the stars while enjoying live Moroccan music before going to sleep in our gorgeously decorated tents with all the comforts we could wish for.

After a luscious breakfast we make our way through the desert into the Atlas Mountains to the Todra Gorg. The region is dotted with deserted kashbas, palmeries and mud-brick villages. The honey hues are a feast for the eyes. We end our day in a colorful oasis near the town of Ouarzazate.

CLOSED | AT Tours – Scandinavia Art Experience 2022

Registration for this Tour is now closed. Please email with any questions.

We have kept the below 2020 details for your reference, but note the 2022 itinerary is still being planned.

In 2022 we are embarking on a Scandinavian Art Experience through Helsinki, Copenhagen, and Oslo.  We will explore marvelous museums, galleries and private collections among the lakes in Copenhagen, while enjoying some of the 25+ Michelin Starred restaurants of the Danish capital, and there will be opportunities to venture north to experience the natural beauty of the Norwegian Fjords and visit the newly opened Twist Museum (Fall 2019) and the new Munch Museum in Oslo.


Join us and the Happiest People in the World in Scandinavia, an inspiration for artists throughout the ages, as we visit the splendid art capitals of this region.

2020 is the year of the first Helsinki Biennial on the city’s spectacular archipelago island of Vallisaari. We will also cruise the Norwegian Fjords, and visit the stunning brand new Twist Museum outside of Oslo, designed by BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) located in one of Europe’s most spectacular sculpture gardens.

Exceptional clean Nordic design and the amazing equally ‘clean’ cuisine are further draws of the region, along with stunning natural beauty.  It is truly a ‘not-to-be-missed’ destination.

A direct flight brings you to the Finnish capital Helsinki where we will visit the first Helsinki Biennial of Contemporary Art. It promises to be an amazing experience. We’ll dive into the thriving art scene and see the best it has to offer.  We will meet artists and collectors in their studios and homes, and visit the world-renowned Aalto studio. We will enjoy a special behind-the-scenes tour in the Kiasma museum, and visit the most beautiful examples of Finnish Jugendstill architecture.

We then travel to Copenhagen, a short flight away.  Countless marvelous museums and galleries are nestled between a string of lakes.  We will visit the best private collections, as well as the Hirschsprung Collection for masterpieces from the Danish Golden Age and  the fantastic Louisiana Museum and sculpture garden. There is also time for some great (design) shopping. We will eat what could be the best food you have ever tasted in some of the 25+ Michelin star restaurants of the Danish capital. Then it is time to take in the natural beauty from the water. We board the cruise- ferry in Copenhagen where we enjoy the views, have a great dinner and spend the night in a first-class cabin.

We wake up to the stunning sights of the Norwegian fjords. Oslo is the last city on our tour. The new Munch Museum is set to open in the spring of 2020. It promises to be a fabulous tribute to the artist and we will enjoy a special visit.  The Oslo art scene is booming and we will visit the best galleries, museums and private collections. We will also make a spectacular trip north to visit the new (opened September 19, 2019) Twist Museum and the sculpture garden surrounding it. A fantastic last stop on what promises to be a truly magical tour.
