Enhance your trip

  • The beauty and tranquillity of the Atlas Mountain range which borders the Sahara Desert deems it an unmissable experience. Home to numerous plant and animal species that are not found anywhere else in the world including many that are endangered- keep those eyes peeled for a rare sighting!
  • Tizin-Tichka is a mountain pass linking south-east Morrocco to Ouarzazate – a city located on top of an Atlas mountain plateau. You may recognize the stunning one-of-a-kind views this town offers from many famous blockbusters that have been filmed there.
  • As Morocco’s longest river originating in the Atlas Mountains and flowing towards the Atlantic, the Draa River carves through beautiful Moroccan landscapes – even the dried up areas are superb!
  • Built in the 12th century at the gates of the Atlas Mountains, the Menara Gardens provide visitors with stunning views not only of the gardens themselves, but the backdrop of the beautiful mountain range. No trip to Morocco would be complete without a stroll in the gardens!
