Some of our destinations:
Ifrane is not at all like other places in Morocco. Alpine-style houses, neat paths, well-groomed lawns, ski slopes … Just like in small European towns. Ifrane is called “Moroccan Switzerland”. It is like a piece of respectable Europe, accidentally brought to North Africa. Also, Ifrane is on the list of the cleanest cities in the world, the city with a huge number of storks. Almost every house has 2-3 nests. An unreal sight!.
The valley of the Ziz river is of extreme importance for the people in the villages alongside its path, like Sijilmasse, Erfoud and Errachidia, the latter having also a hydroelectric dam. Some villagers have small canals that they use from the river to their own crops and for domestic use. It is also a touristic attraction, featuring places like the famous gorges of the Ziz river, the Merzouga village in the desert doors or the ancient village of Rissani, which demarked the ending of the trans-Saharan trade tribes route. Moreover, located in the High Atlas Mountains, the Ziz river in the south of Morocco has an extension of 282 Km. The river ends up giving rise to the Daura river and goes all the way into the Sahara Desert.

Ait Ben Haddou:
Ait Ben Haddou is a clear example of the architecture of southern Morocco. Getting lost in this labyrinth of adobe is an extraordinary experience, a return to the origin of time. Despite the deterioration, its essence remains the reddish buildings that blend in with the earth and the traditional mud and straw houses overlooking the Atlas. An image that the cinema has recreated on many occasions, since Ben Hadu has served as a film set in movies like The Jewel of the Nile, Sodom and Gomorrah, The Mummy, Game of Thrones, Gladiator, Alexander the Great, Babel and some scenes of the legendary Lawrence of Arabia. Its fame may endure thanks to the seventh art, but the truth is that its beauty is still unquestionable.
