What to do in the Marakech-Safi region
Marrakech is an excellent starting point for a variety of activities. Those who long for peace and nature after days of hustle and bustle in the city do not have far to go. The imposing Atlas Mountains rise near the southeast of the city. The lush green foothills invite visitors to go hiking or mountaineering, as the Toubkal is the highest mountain in North Africa at 4,167 meters. So it's no wonder that you can ski or snowboard in Morocco. In the High Atlas, the ski resort of Oukaïmeden attracts winter sports enthusiasts.
If you want to go just as high, but without snow, you can take a hot air balloon ride over the Atlas Mountains. In the High Atlas rises the Dadès, a river that has formed the Dadès valley: impressive rock formations, canyons, gorges and the oasis of Skoura! In the southwest of the Western High Atlas National Park, another natural wonder awaits you: the waterfalls of Ouzoud.
