Morocco is a country of spice and colour, and contrasts and smiles. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the thick of Marrakech’s bustling markets, or relaxing in Casablanca, Morocco is sure to offer you a few surprises. And here’s a good one for you: Morocco has a wealth of adventure activities. Most people don’t think of the country as an adventure destination, but they couldn’t be more wrong.
Climbers especially should take advantage of Morocco’s mountainous and diverse terrain on a Morocco climbing tour. Climbing in the country is surprisingly easy to do, it’s affordable, and the weather is always generally good. The three main areas for climbing include Tafraoute, Todra Gorge, and Taghia Gorge.
