Discover the rich Arab and Berber cultures on this active and immersive Morocco adventure where you'll venture deep into the maze-like passageways in the medina of Fez, explore spice souks and Moroccan flavors through a cooking class, traverse the Atlas Mountains and sample authentic Berber hospitality, trace ancient caravan routes through the Sahara Desert and finish in the bustling, colorful cacophony of Djemna el-Fna, the main square of Marrakesh. Ride camels through the dunes and camp with Tuareg nomads in the Saharan night and experience a Kasbah lifestyle unchanged for centuries as you walk with your local hosts among Ksar fortresses and palmerie plantations in the Dades Valley. While hiking through the Atlas mountains you'll discover lush forests and streams beneath high peaks, encounter rare Barbary macaque monkeys and and participate in tree planting with local farmers through the High Atlas Foundation. Most of all you'll connect with Moroccan people hailing from several different cultural groups with distinctive traditions, but with a shared pride in offering guests the warm and welcoming hospitality that is so characteristic of Islamic cultures. Extra days or independent exploration in Fez and Marrakesh allow plenty of time for cooking classes, shopping and museum hopping and extensions to the coastal cities of Essaouria and Tangier can easily be arranged.
