High Atlas Mountain Adventure, Morocco (12 days)

 

Morocco is a fantastic country to visit. Experience the hustle and bustle of Marrakech’s souks to the mountains of the High Atlas Mountains. Stand on top of Jebel Toubkal, North Africa’s highest peak and then relax on a day’s camel trek along the coast and explore the seaside town of Essaouira.
