The reliefs and the geography
Plains and mountains:
Seen from the sky, Morocco, set between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, unrolls from East to West a long mountainous strip and then sinks south into the sand to the borders with Mauritania. The landscapes are multiple and breathtaking: vertiginous snow-covered peaks of the High Atlas, steep and gullied massifs of the Rif, dense forests of oaks and cedars of the central plateau, fertile plains of the Meseta, arid lands of the high plateaus, semi-desert steppes and lush oases of the Souss basin, sand dunes of the Sahara.
The different types of habitat have shaped diverse cultures that have enriched the identity of Morocco. The variety of reliefs is such that the traveler can find his happiness in all seasons. When the snow blocks the roads of the Atlas Mountains, seaside activities are still possible in the Great South.
Fauna and flora
To each territory corresponds an endemic flora and fauna, today protected in a spirit of sustainable tourism development. Gazelles, eagles, mouflons, and fennecs are not rare and it is easy to observe their way of life. Morocco, a sacred nature… Morocco offers such a geographical diversity that one can leave one morning the beautiful beaches of Agadir to find oneself in the afternoon at the foot of the ski slopes of Oukaimeden, before going back down to enjoy a sweet evening in the palm grove of Marrakech.
