From the snow-capped Atlas Mountains and breezy coastal port cities to the blazing Sahara Desert, Morocco’s diverse and stunning landscapes have been cradles of human history for hundreds of thousands of years. Among some of the country’s earliest inhabitants were the Amazigh, or Berber, people—who continue to shape the language, culture, and cuisine of Morocco today. On this immersive, 11-day trip, we’ll venture through Casablanca, deep into the mountains, through the vast Sahara, and beyond, visiting various Berber communities for days at a time. We’ll participate in local initiatives led by community members, learn about the differences between various Berber cultures across the country, and sip countless cups of steaming mint tea—camping in the desert, soaking in steamy hammams, and straddling a camel or two along the way.
This trip is offered by Atlas Obscura. Once you've reserved your spot, our team will be in touch to help you prepare for the trip. Please note that flights to and from Casablanca are not included in the trip cost.
