It seems like everyone is taking off to Europe these days, sipping spritz in Italy or island hopping in Greece. Another popular destination is a bit further south. Morocco is famous for being rich in culture, its bustling bazaars and its many colorful cities. However, many people don’t know that Morocco is also a hot spot for adventure lovers! Here’s the top 3 things you need to experience if you’re looking for an unforgettable experience in Morocco:
Glamping in Erg Chebbi
Imagine a night spent under the stars in the middle of the desert, you can do this and more at Erg Chebbi. Don’t worry if you aren’t into rough camping, this campsite is set up for glampers so guests will have all the amenities they would need! This excursion also comes with breakfast and dinner, a sunset camel trek through the Sahara and a four wheeler adventure through the sand dunes! The Erg Chebbi is one of the top rated destinations in Morocco and due to its many activities – it should definitely be on your to do list!
Windsurfing at Sidi Kaouki
Another surprising fact is that Morocco is actually a great place for windsurfing! Essaouira is a windy city on the coast creating the perfect combo for surfing. Here, you can find windsurfers, kitesurfers and surfers all along the beach. If you’ve been itching to learn a water sport or to perfect your technique, this is definitely the stop for you! For beachgoers just looking to kick back and relax, Essaouira also offers nice, sandy beaches for you to sunbathe or wade in the waves. There are also surf shops all along the beach for anyone looking for a little retail therapy.
Hike Jebel Toubkal
Mountain lovers will be thrilled to know that the highest mountain in North Africa is located in Morocco. Jebel Toubkal offers hikers several different paths, all with stunning views of the mountain range. The two day trek is one of the most popular activities in Morocco due to its incomparable sights. However, for those looking for a bit more adventure, there is also the Toubkal circuit which is a seven day trek. Although both treks are fairly non-technical, all hikers should be in good physical form in order to make sure they are able to complete the trek through the changing altitudes.
Morocco is a trending location for good reason. This diverse African country has so much to offer travelers. Cities such as Marrakech and Casablanca have caught traction for a long time now, however, there is so much more to the country than just these exciting cities. Although many people don’t think of Morocco as being an adventure hotspot, there are several activities for every type of adrenaline junky. From glamping under the stars in the dunes to channeling the wind for an epic surf or catching the sunset over the highest mountain range in Northern Africa, adventurists will never go bored.
