"Morocco's Grand Canyon" Season: March until June | Level: Class 3/4 | Participants: minimum 4
Most of the visitors come for the famous Sahara desert, the ancient cities or for a surf on the coast. We take you through the mountains by rafting. It's the only way to see the pure berber villages. Only a few hours from Europe and you are in a different world.
Day 1: Marrakesh
Meeting point at the airport. Only 15 min drive to the old town. After a welcoming mint tea we head outside to discover the night life at the Jamaa EL Fna Plaza and try the fantastic local cooked freshly food. Stay overnight in a Riad (Maroccan traditional house).
Day 2: Cascade d'Ouzout
After breakfast we pack up and drive to the Atlas mountains. On the way we stop at the cascade "d'Ouzout". Its the most famous waterfall in Morocco with monkeys jumping on our table while we are having lunch. After 6 houres we finally reach our berber camp with a welcoming tea before the "Tajine".
The High Atlas Experience of Morocco
Day 3: The Ahansal River
Rafting in the High Atlas
Today its white water rafting day. After safety instructions we practise and float down rapids all day (class3). After the biggest rapid "Rock the Casbah" (class4) we stop for a sandwich by the river. At the end of the day we set up our camp in a massive canyon with a bonfire, a nice meal and drinks. You will sleep under stars like you've never seen before.
Day 4: Rafting in the Canyon
Rafting in Morocco
Nothing better than waking up with a fresh air and morning sunlight by the river. We float down for 3 houres in the canyon with blue, green magical water (class 2). We will have lunch on the boat and then head back to the riad in Marrakesh.
Day 5: The Medina
After breakfast we explore the old part of the city of Marrakesh. The most exciting part is the "souks". Its a maze filled up with shopping malls. We fly back home.
"Waking up in a beautiful Bedouin tent with the smell of Berber Whiskey lingering in the air and a day filled with adventure ahead of you. 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!"
