Morocco is called "the country of a thousand colors" for the diversity of its landscapes: golden dunes, all the pinks and oranges of its sunsets, the snows of the Atlas, the color of its cities, the vibrant bazaars. Traveling to Morocco is riding a camel on the dunes while watching the most spectacular sunset, it is sleeping in the haimmas under a star-studded sky, where the tajines are enriched with saffron and argan, it is haggling with the carpet sellers in the bazaars and find shepherds of the Berber tribes herding goats on the slopes of the mountains. Our proposal will invite you to a complete trip through Morocco, in our style, beyond a typical tourist trip. It is a dream trip where you will get to know imperial cities and their medinas, the desert, crossing the Atlas and reaching the Atlantic coast.
