Morocco Active Adventure (DCAA)
With a landscape as diverse as Morocco’s, the transportation must be built to match. The simple pleasures of just 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 camel caravan 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.
Highlights: Wander through the mountains on the back of a mule, savour coastal views from the back of a camel, enjoy the unique accommodation of a beach camp, cycle through the Atlas Mountains
Atlas Mountain Trek (DCAM)
The Atlas Mountains reward their visitors with a stunning combination of valleys, summits and traditional villages clinging to mountainsides. On this active adventure through one of Morocco's most naturally beautiful regions, you'll experience magnificent views and enjoy meeting local people along the trail. Recount the day’s exploits over home-cooked dinners each night from the comfort of your cozy accommodations. Designed with the outdoor enthusiast in mind, the challenging but rewarding hikes are taken at a leisurely pace, allowing plenty of time to catch your breath, then the chance to lose it all over again while admiring the stunning views.
Highlights: Enjoy spectacular day walks, relax at a family gîte and savour home-cooked meals, help with a local village project, wander ancient medinas and bazaars in Marrakech
Jordan Active Adventure (DJJA)
Jordan is famed for its ancient past, but its present is pretty darn compelling, too. The natural and man-made wonders of Petra and Wadi Rum have been drawing travellers here for ages, but the rough-hewn grandeur of Jordan has remained a secret known only to the boldest of thrill-seekers. Trek the rocky hills to isolated villages along the trails near Ajloun, hike down canyons towards the Dead Sea and discover the Dana Biosphere Reserve. See for yourself why Jordan is a secret we just couldn’t keep to ourselves any longer.
Highlights: Trek Ajloun and Dana Nature reserves, float in the Dead Sea, go canyoneering and abseiling through Wadi Mujib, set your eyes on the Rose City of Petra, savour a local Bedouin meal in the desert of Wadi Rum
