Green destinations and mountains

Mountains made for any adventure!

Morocco is a land traversed by mountains. The three Atlas mountain ranges and the Rif form stark, jagged silhouettes, but they are also natural playgrounds for adventure seekers.

Hiking and backpacking are top activities. Many of the trails begin within the country's natural parks, such as Talassemtane National Park near Chefchaouen and Ifrane National Park. Summiting Mount Toubkal is a quintessential experience in the Marrakesh region. It is the highest peak in North Africa and can be reached in as few as two days.

Mountains are made for discovery and enjoying wide open spaces, but they also serve up thrills! You can choose a variety of high-adrenaline activities, ranging from mountain biking to hang gliding to rafting the Ahansal River gorge. Snow skiing is another option at the ski resorts in Michlifennear Ifrane and Oukaimeden, the latter of which is just few dozen miles from Marrakesh.

There is also a rich mountain culture. A bevy of curiosities await you: tour the fortified granaries of the Lesser Atlas or the lovely Chefchaouen, whose azure blue architecture brightens the foothills of Mount Kelaa and Mount Meggou. Even in the city, you feel the presence of the mountains.

Morocco’s unique geography means you can enjoy a variety of experiences in a single day. Discover a natural energy reserve just a half-hour from Marrakesh.Choose from a plethora of activities: zip lines, treetop ropes courses, mountain biking or perhaps pure relaxation!
