When you think of a tour of Morocco, you think quickly of the Sahara, camels, sun and exotic scenery. But have you heard of the High Atlas Mountains? If not – it’s time that changed, because this is actually one of the best places in Morocco to visit for adventure travel.
In winter, the Atlas Mountains of Morocco are full of snow, whereas in summer, the melt water forms a few large and powerful rivers. These crystal-clear azure waters rush through the burnt orange mountain gorges, creating the perfect conditions for exhilarating white water rafting trips.
While white-water enthusiasts have been riding the cataracts of the Atlas Mountains for decades, white water rafting in Morocco is only just beginning to enter the wider public consciousness as a top choice for rafting and whitewater kayaking travel.
If you are 16 years of age or over, and are searching for adventure, regardless of previous experience, then our multi day trip “Morocco’s Grand Canyon” on the Ahansal River is where you should be.
By day, cascade down gushing routes and pass impressive landmarks like Cathedral Rock, and by night, sit by a cosy campfire with nothing but a hot cup of Moroccan mint tea to distract you from the incredible starry sky. This is what adventure travel is all about.
