Morocco is world renown for being a destination for culture vultures. With its Arabic lifestyle, French lifestyle, colourful towns, and delicious foods, Morocco makes an ideal destination for everyone. But did you know that Morocco is also an excellent destination for adventure seekers? If you fancy hiking a mountain or riding a camel into the desert, a Morocco adventure is just for you.
If there’s one thing you must do in Morocco, it’s a camel trek into the desert. Ride into the Sahara Desert and Merzouga in style, and get to know the Berbers that call the desert their home. Drive from Marrakech to Fes, through the Atlas Mountains, and stop by world heritage sites like Ait BenHaddou Kasbah, the Cinema in Ouarzazate, and more. Once you reach the desert, treat yourself to some Berber entertainment at sunset: music, drums, and perhaps even a Berber feast. You’ll find the families here welcoming and approachable, and eager to share their culture with you.
You can also visit some Berber villages on foot rather than by camel. Give yourself at least four days to explore the high peaks of the Atlas Mountains. You’ll walk through cool vegetation of juniper and pine trees, traverse deep gorges and gushing river streams, and explore the stunning mountain valleys. The valleys are home to tiny hamlets and villages belonging to the Berbers, who spend their time herding and farming. Visit their homes, and learn their customs. You’ll camp out in a local gite, or in a tent, with millions of stars just beyond your front door. Wrap it all up by visiting Ighouliden Waterfalls and the Tizi Oussem pass.Read More ...
