Road Trip Morocco – High Atlas and the Sahara


farway… so close



The first stretch of African land has a popular coastline that extends for hundreds of miles, jam packed with tourist resorts. In the purest of the contrasts emerges its arid and endless inland, where nature and life seem to hide just to surprise you in unexpected explosions… in the most unexpected sites. It’s this genuine Morocco we challenge you to explore in a road trip through the heart of the Berber world, across trails and mountains leading to the majestic Sahara.


​The mysticism of the lifestyle of its people and their centenary traditions inspire travellers since immemorial times. Let yourself also be seduced by the charms of the magnificent Atlas and the void of the infinite desert plains, where all colours seem to have been invented. As well as by the frenetic medinas and souks, the agitation of Marrakech’s Jemaa El Fna square or the uniqueness of a sunrise from the top a sand dune.


​This is the Morocco we defy you discover: a magic and remote world... just around the corner
