Exploring the Splendor of Morocco in a 4x4

To explore a country as diverse and rugged as Morocco, many visitors opt for the thrill of 4x4 tours, which are getting increasingly popular. It has opened a whole new industry for the locals, who have established reputable adventure companies that offer guided 4x4 trails, sometimes combined with camel tours, across the most deserted spaces in the Moroccan landscape. It is an opportunity to discover the beauty of Morocco at leisure and to take the path less traveled.

Most companies accommodate drivers will various skill levels, from beginners to experienced, and driving through the deserts and back roads of Morocco adds to the thrill of the journey. Different packages are available to suit visitors’ needs and can be tailor made on request. Drivers are also available and all of the vehicles used for these 4x4 tours are fitted with soothing air-conditioning systems to take the edge off the heat. Guests can determine the pace of the expedition and can ask guides to stop at any point for a break or to take advantage of the perfect photographic opportunities.

The 4x4 tours vary in length depending on the chosen route, and the excursions take visitors past small villages and settlements that few tourists get to see. Some of the destinations and regions that 4x4 tours visit include the Draa River Valley, the beautiful south Atlas and the fossils and meheree in Merzouga. Erg Chebbi brings the challenge of crossing the ever shifting sand dunes and the Valley of Roses and Thousand Kasbahs can be reached from Quarzazate. Other breathtaking places to explore are the Dades and Ziz Valleys, Tondra Canyon and Ait Ben Haddou. Ait Ben Haddou is a fortified village that has been used many times by the film industry, and nearby is the Telouet Village which is most definitely worth the visit as it is the highest Kasbah in the country and once home to the Moroccan governor. The Fint Oasis is a spectacular site, made up of three villages in the Black Mountains and is as beautiful as it is fascinating.

All tours start in one of the big cities, such as Meknes, Marrakech, Agadir, Tangier and Fez. Professional staff will assist visitors in selecting the most suited package, according to their needs, before sending them off for the adventure of a lifetime. It is a chance to see a different side of Morocco, meet local tribes and enjoy the camaraderie and fun that can only be experienced on a 4x4 tour. Memories and the bonds forged will also be a lasting reminder to the beauty, magnificence and excitement of Morocco and the 4x4 tours.
