Most people visiting Morocco are there to explore its stunning architecture, lively souks, and beach resorts, but there’s more to this country than meets the eye. Its natural beauty knows no bounds, and here are some spots you shouldn’t miss if you love exploring the great outdoors.
Sahara covers a significant part of Morocco, but the magic starts before you even step into the desert. Erg Chebbi consists of dunes formed by wind-blown sand, and it offers a similar experience, including overnight camping trips, camel, and ATV rides that you can book at the nearby village of Merzouga.
Morocco’s most impressive waterfall is located 150 km away from Marrakech, and it’s definitely worth the ride. It’s surrounded by olive trees, and it’s known for being home to a colony of monkeys. Boat rides at the bottom of the falls are a popular activity with tourists visiting the area.
One thing that may surprise you about Morocco is the fact that it’s a heaven on Earth for passionate hikers. One of the best places to start your outdoorsy adventures is Todra Gorge, a spectacular, cliff-sided canyon that narrows to a flat stony track, which is also extremely popular among rock climbers.
