Place

The outlying area is among the most beautiful in all Morocco

Agadir is a place to escape. The Souss Valley and, a bit further, the peaks of the Lesser Atlas Mountains, form wonderful compositions as only nature can do. This backcountry is rich in possibilities for you to immerse yourself in the joys of exploration and green tourism.

If you crave wide open spaces, the Souss Massa National Park is a must. It is home to extraordinary wildlife: 250 bird species, including the famous bald ibis, along with antelopes, boars and mongooses. Hike through this untamed wilderness for an unforgettable experience. Elsewhere in the park, at Tifnit, the rock walls will catch your eye, for they are riddled with the carved-out homes of ancient cave dwellers that were abandoned long ago.

The vegetation is equally stunning. It grows, flourishes and blossoms throughout the region. Fruit-laden trees like almond trees and argan trees – the source of the famous oil – area feast for the eyes after the winter. Flowers also thrive, feeding honey production in the area. There are scenic routes devoted to these flowers that you can follow to learn about the know-how, culinary tradition and lifestyle of the region.

After all, discovery is one of the top activities in and around Agadir. So wander from site to site and let nature and its treasures surprise you.
