This trekking group tour in Morocco is one of our best adventure trip for rough travelers. It covers the high Atlas Mountains and the Sahara desert. The Southern and Northern lands of Morocco differ completely from one another, contrasting both in climate and landscape. The South seems to embody a step backward in time, to an era of the biblical aura of an ancient Mesopotamia. The vast Sahara seems surreal, with its plateaus bordered by mirages. Along these valleys and waddies, you will discover sandcastle-like Kasbahs and romantic oases, where tall date palms grow surrounded by silver-green reeds. Sand dunes on the far horizon are constantly reshaped by gentle winds, sheltered by azure-blue African skies shape the backdrop of these lush vistas.
These breath-taking landscapes have attracted artists, poets, and filmmakers. Even Cecil de Mill and Martin Scorsese were unable to capture on film the majesty and unsurpassed beauty of Morocco's Southern lands. It is literally heaven on earth, which has a depth that can only be truly embraced and appreciated by the naked eye.
