Morocco offers some of the most stunning and varied landscapes in North Africa as well as an intriguing and fascinating culture. Its tourist industry has been developing at an impressive rate in the last few years in order to cope with the demand of all sorts of travellers, from those seeking arts and history, luxury and comfort or sheer adventure. Morocco's infrastructure has also emerged successfully to welcome adventure travellers from all over the world.

Morocco offers countless adventure tours that include a number of exciting activities, including mountain trekking (characterised by several days long hikes that can include a summit climb) mountain biking, rock climbing and canyoning, as well as all sorts of white water sports that offer perfect chances of fishing and relaxing.

Many local and foreign tour operators offer well-organised adventure tours that comprise transportation, equipment and training and can even include accommodation, food and visits to places of cultural and natural interest. For your mountain trekking expeditions you can hire the services of a guide in the main towns or villages of all hiking regions. Some villages even have an official guide office, but if there isn't one, you should check the guide's credentials in order to guarantee that he has received the appropriate training at the official guide college of Tabant.

You can also ask for advice from the Club Alpin Français, housed within the Toubkal National Park, or at several Gites d'Etape, which consist of humble rural houses that serve hot food and provide lodging for tourists and trekkers.

The Toubkal National Park in the High Atlas is by far the most popular climbing and trekking region in Morocco. In the park you will find Morocco's highest peak, the Jbel Toubkal, with an altitude of 4167m/13671ft. I also recommend a trekking tour around the Ourika Valley starting at Setti Fatma, as well as a visit to Oukaimeden, which houses a fantastic ski resort. Other excellent trekking areas in the High Atlas are the Tassaout and Bougmez Valleys

Of course, those regions provide excellent opportunities for other adventure sports, such as rock climbing, canyoning and skiing. Moreover, a visit to these regions will give you a chance to discover the fascinating and incredibly hospitable Berber culture as well as some of the most impressive and beautiful Kasbahs in the world, especially around the Ouarzazate region, also known as 2The Land of the Thousand Kasbahs".

Come to Morocco and enjoy the wonderful opportunities of adventure travel that it provides, especially around the region of Marrakech. The Ochre City offers culture and a fascinating tradition, monuments and countless tourist attractions, as well as a delightful gastronomy and the widest range of shopping opportunities.

Moreover, hotels in Marrakech are of the highest quality and quite affordable, and particularly Marrakech riads, which are full of charm and very inexpensive. You can also stay in a wonderful villa in Marrakech, closer to the countryside, where its inhabitants will welcome you with open arms.
