Southern Morocco Tour

Overview

Explore Southern Morocco and the Anti-Atlas Mountains on this adventurous Morocco tour! Travel from Marrakech via the High Atlas mountains. Continue from the Sahara desert in the deep south of Morocco to Foum Zguid and Tafraoute in the Anti Atlas Mountains! End your trip in charming Essaouira at the Atlantic coast!

This trip is great if you want to learn more about the local southern culture of Morocco as well as the nature that this region has to offer. Above all, you will end your trip in the bustling town of Essaouira, a great combination with the earlier mountains and desert plains more inland. Deep South Morocco takes you off the beaten track, to for instance Tagdicht and Tata, places not many tourists visit. It’s a unique journey through one of Morocco’s most remote and undiscovered regions!
