DO AN ADVENTURE TOUR
Morocco is not only magical but for sheer diversity, it is the perfect destination for adventures and adrenaline rushing activities. From the imperial cities of Marrakech, Meknes and Fez with crowded bazaars conjuring up flavors of Arabian Nights to contrasting mountain ranges in the south and to the glimmering sandy dunes of the Sahara, Morocco is full of opportunities for adventure.
Make the most of your Moroccan trip by taking an adventure tour to the High Atlas Ranges, trekking through ancient Berber villages to the highest summit of Jebel Toubkal. The forbidding Sahara Desert is also another location that calls for adventure. Trace ancient caravan routes through the sandy dunes of the Sahara and the Valley of a Thousand Kasbahs. Take some time and relax in a Berber tent in the Sahara with Tuareg nomads for a night under the glittering stars.
An adventure tour of Morocco helps you discover the country in a different way through experiencing the natural and manmade features that define Morocco (get more info on Morocco holidays at www.cyplon.co.uk).
