Guided walk through Todra GorgeTodra Gorge, Morocco

On our Best of Morocco trip, you will have the chance to visit the breathtaking Todra Gorge, a huge rock formation that plunges 300-metres down to a clear, flowing river.

Surrounded by rocky outcrops, there are several Berber villages scattered around, and a few of these spots are occupied by Berber nomad families. During our two-day stay in the area you will embark on a guided walk that will take you up the valley and right to the top of the gorge along a series of gravelly walking paths. The views that surround you are, to say the least, beautiful. After a short walk across the high plateau you will have the chance to explore a set of small caves occupied by the nomads. There are also tents set up around this area, and if you’re lucky you’ll have the opportunity to sit around the fire and share a cup of mint tea with a nomad family. This sort of local interaction is unforgettable; hearing the stories and words of wisdom from people leading the nomadic-style of life is priceless.
