Long famed for the bustling activities of its shopkeepers and the skill of its craftsmen, Marrakech is also renowned for its wonderful climate and its setting which is as remarkable as it is varied. Palm groves, rose gardens, the snow capped Atlas Mountains and the nearby desert all contrive to make this one of the world’s most evocative locations.
Sitting and witnessing the kaleidoscope that is Jemaa El Fna with its fortune tellers, story tellers, tooth pullers, herbalists, snake charmers, acrobats, musicians and dancers is to participate in something very special indeed.
Pick up a bargain in the Medina, but be prepared to negotiate like a Berber, dine on one of the world’s great cuisine’s or simply indulge in the pleasures of your Riad – your senses will come alive. In a world of conformity Marrakech stands out and is unique.
The nearby dramatic High Atlas mountains have peaks over 4,000 m offering stunning views and a huge range of trekking opportunities that vary in ability level from ambling to serious hiking.
The road to Ouarzazate passes directly through the spectacular valley of Kasbahs where hundreds of Kasbahs line the valley of Dades, giving you a glimpse into the rugged desert culture.
