Tour description

With a landscape as diverse as Morocco, the transportation must be built to match. The simple pleasures of getting around are essential to this activity-heavy excursion into the desert kingdom: Mule treks into the Atlas Mountains, bike rides through ruggedly beautiful mountain passes, even a leisurely coastal walk to a campsite in the desert. But it’s not all tramping about in the dunes and hills; you’ll also have the chance to explore Essaouira, the fortified city on the Atlantic coast that was once a haven for pirates.

  • Your Welcome Moment: Meet Your CEO and Group
  • Overnight in a beach tented camp after a relaxing walk along the coastal dunes
  • Mule trek near Ouirgane

  • Cycling at Tafraoute
  • All transport between destinations and to/from included activities
