Sports Activities in Morocco
Hiking in Morocco
Hiking is one of the most popular sporting activities in Morocco for exploring the country. Hiking offers the opportunity to visit remote villages and enjoy wonderful gastronomic delights. Hiking in Morocco is not particularly difficult, depending on the location. It also depends on the time of year you visit.
For example, if you are traveling in winter, it is possible to take a hike to the summit of Jebel Toubkal, even if some trails are closed. In spring, the trek to the High Atlas is excellent. Most of the trekking is done here.
Hiking in the Moroccan desert
If you choose the Moroccan deserts as your travel destination, you will visit five unparalleled sites: the Chegaga Dunes, the Merzouga Dunes, the Agafay Desert, the Saint-Exupéry Desert, and the White Desert. And above all, because each desert is a special harmony. The landscape is a hiker’s paradise, with endless camel paths.
Hiking in the Mid-Atlas Mountains, Morocco
The Mid-Atlas is easily accessible for day hikes. Hike along alpine trails between the Coucelles, Imilchil, and Anergi valleys, where you will meet nomads. Hikes in the Middle Atlas also take you through protected forests, lakes, and canyons.
Hiking in the Jebel Saghro
This mountain range is an extension of the Anti-Atlas and is separated from the High Atlas by the Dades Gorge. Hiking the Jebel Saghro is an alternative when there is a lot of snow in the High Atlas in winter. The highest peak, Amarn Mansur, is lower than the peaks of the High Atlas. So, altitude fear is less and hiking is easier.
Hiking Mount Mougoun
Mount Mougoun is the most popular hiking destination in Morocco. It reaches an elevation of 4,068 meters and offers breathtaking views of the beautiful landscape. It is the third highest peak in Morocco after Jebel Toubkal and Jebel Ouanoukrim.
Beach Walk between Agadir and Essaouira
Essaouira is a coastal city in Morocco with a relatively mild climate throughout the year, even in winter. Because the trade winds cool the air, summer temperatures are cooler than in other cities in the country. Between Agadir and Essaouira, discover unique landscapes and beautiful beaches.

Climbing in Todoga Gorge
Located in the High Atlas of Morocco, 15 km from the center of Tinghir, the Todoga Gorge is a destination for many tourists. Its spectacular panorama not only attracts visitors but also gives climbers a special pleasure: it stretches for 2 km and has about 30 deer sectors for all levels. They are the El Mansur beach, the Meuk sector on the right and left bank, the Sacred Fish Wall, the Garden, and the Chaos. The walls can be up to 350 meters high. However, while many are equipped, others are left untouched. Climbing in the Todoga Gorge is possible all year round, but is not recommended during the winter months. Rattle rite is a very hard, abrasive, coarse and compact ochre-colored calcite. The quality of the ratchet attracts more climbers.
Climbing in Taguir
The small Berber village of Taguir, in the High Atlas of Morocco, is the starting point for great treks in the highlands and valleys. Climbers have climbing routes up to 500 meters above sea level. All styles are possible, especially wedge cracks, steep technical slabs and overhangs.
Climbing in the Tafraoute
In recent years, British climbers have discovered many climbing routes in and around Tafraoute, a small town of 5,000 inhabitants. Many of them are in the style of adventure terrain. The easiest way to reach the town is to fly 180 km north to Agadir and rent a car from there.
