Discover The High Atlas Morocco

Between the rocky plain of the Al Haouz Province and the desert, is the oasis of Marrakech, overlooked by the permanently snow-capped peaks of the Atlas Mountains. Particularly good for hiking, the region is attracting more and more travellers who come to explore the rugged foothills of Mount Toubkal. Further south, the valleys reveal picturesque landscapes, punctuated with Berber style red clay kasbahs and palm groves.
