When it comes to natural beauty, Morocco is a country that has it all. From the snow-capped peaks of the Atlas Mountains and the sandy beaches of the Sahara Desert, to the lush green valleys and winding river canyons in the central highlands, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Here are some of the highlights:

In the south, you can find the Sahara Desert with its vast stretches of sand dunes and rocky plateaus. It’s a truly unique landscape that offers plenty of opportunities for adventure activities such as camel rides, 4x4 safaris and sandboarding.

Moving north, you come to the Atlas Mountains. These are some of Africa’s highest mountains, and offer some stunning scenery, with snow-capped peaks, pine forests and green valleys. There are plenty of excellent hiking trails in the area, and mountain biking is also popular.

Central Morocco is home to some beautiful landscapes, including the Rif Mountains, the Middle Atlas and the High Atlas. These are all great areas for hiking and camping, with plenty of opportunities to see traditional Berber villages and meet the friendly locals.

Finally, no visit to Morocco would be complete without a trip to the coast. The North Coast is famed for its beaches, while the South Coast offers dramatic rocky cliffs and sheltered bays. There’s plenty of opportunity for swimming, sunbathing and water sports here, as well as enjoying the relaxed Mediterranean atmosphere.

So if you’re looking for an exotic and exciting destination with plenty of natural beauty to explore, Morocco is a great choice. With its diverse landscape, friendly people and rich culture, there’s something for everyone here. So why not pack your bags and come and see for yourself?
