This active Morocco adventure traverses the Middle and High Atlas Mountains, traces ancient caravan routes through the Sahara Desert and the Valley of a Thousand Kasbahs. It's a hands-on, in-depth exploration of the stunning landscapes, rich history, and the Arab and Berber cultures of the Magreb. You walk down the pistes among Imperial cities and Roman ruins. Venture deep into the maze of small passageways in the medina of Fez. In the bustling main square of Djemna el-Fna, you weave amidst snake charmers, basket weavers, soothsayers and musicians in the Imperial capital of Marrakech. Ride camels through the dunes and camp with Tuareg nomads in the Saharan night. You are immersed in Kasbah lifestyle- unchanged for centuries-walking, riding mules and camels among Ksar fortresses and palmerie plantations in the Draa or Dades Valley. Our hiking routes in the Atlas Mountains lead you to mountain forests and streams under high peaks where you encounter Barbary macaque monkeys and local farmers, herders and nomads, each Berber community steeped in its distinctive traditions and each sharing the deep hospitality so characteristic of Islamic cultures.
