Hiking and Trekking Tours in Morocco
Discover diverse cultures, excellent food, and the Atlas Mountains that hold the roof of north Africa in Morocco!
In the far northwest corner of Africa lies the country of Morocco, largely misunderstood but an excellent destination for hiking and trekking vacations. When most people think of Morocco, the first thing that probably comes to mind is sand. The Sahara desert is the largest desert in the world, covering over 3.5 million square miles, some of which reaches into Morocco. But this north African country just across the strait of Gibraltar from Spain has more than just sand dunes. Much of the country is covered in soaring mountains with elevations that get snow every winter and mountain villages perched on hillsides. Hiking through this region of Morocco feels more like hiking through the mountains of Asia or the Americas than Africa. Mount Toubkal, coming in at 13,671 ft above sea level, is the tallest mountain in north Africa and sits among the Atlas Mountain Range which stretches more than a thousand miles. This is the roof of north Africa.
