Morocco has long been a popular destination for adventure travelers. The North African country not only offers fantastic trekking opportunities, but great city adventures as well.
Marrakesh is the second largest city in Morocco and lies close to the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, offering visitors the opportunity to explore the mountains and life in the historical Medina. Wander through the old souks and feast your eyes on the colorful spices and fabrics that line the narrow walk ways.
Visit Djemaa El-Fna to experience a true Arabian night. Musicians, dancers, storytellers and visitors pack into the head of the old town and enjoy the cooler temperatures. Stalls will pop up and offer a wide variety of Moroccan cuisine, traditional coffee and women who will offer you henna tattoos.
The warm hospitality of the people of Marrakesh is sure to make your trip even more enjoyable. If you want to do some trekking, hike up the Atlas Mountains along various paths. Some of the tall summits reach more than 13,000 feet, but many trails are suitable for beginners and advanced hikers.
For the most authentic Moroccan experience, it is recommended that you travel with a small group of people.
