Abounding with myths and legends, Morocco offers a surprise around every corner - this fast-paced tour will delight travellers looking to discover all of its hidden treasures.

Morocco is an ancient, mysterious and breathtakingly beautiful country that has lured foreign visitors for millennia. It is a land of contrasts: ancient and modern, Arab and Berber, European and African. The idyllic and isolated Berber villages of the High Atlas seem untouched by time (except for the satellite dishes).

From the Riffians of the north to the Berbers of the Atlas and the Arab nomads of the south, the people of Morocco are as distinct as its landscapes. Their individuality is reflected in their dress and local traditions, which remain remarkably intact in most places.

Morocco has always adapted and absorbed these many influences, but the country’s wild hinterlands and rugged mountain regions have also sheltered and preserved the indigenous Berber culture. The result is a country of powerful extremes, where the traditional and the modern thrive side by side, and the lifeblood of the country is a vibrant intermingling of dozens of cultural and social elements.
