And then, when you’ve climbed into the raft, adrenaline rushes through your body while you conquer rapids and traverse humbling canyons. Berber Rafting Adventures will introduce you to places you’ll never forget: from hidden patios in the centre of Marrakesh to spectacular views in the High Altas Mountains. Under the guidance of experienced mountaineers and raftguides (Yann!) you will discover the hospitable Berber culture and cherish – until months after – the wonderful people , the food and of course the amazing trip!"

"We spent that night camping on a few large polished rocks next to an impassable waterfall. We made a huge campfire, ate, and drank what was left of the duty free Johnny Walker before going to sleep under more stars than I had seen in my life. I’d never done that, and it was absolutely magical..." By Gijs Peetsold
