Description of Canyoning holiday in Morocco

This canyoning holiday in Morocco provides a generous helping of adventure around the stunning peaks, waterfalls, lakes and rivers of the Middle Atlas Mountains. The main action takes place at Ouzoud waterfalls, a fertile area surrounded by olive trees and ancient windmills. Here, with the help of an experienced instructor, you’ll don a wetsuit and a helmet to explore the local canyons, natural slides, pools and waterfalls.

You’ll also visit the majestic formations of La Cathédrale, a massive rock wall that dominates the surrounding landscape. After trekking through the area, during which you’ll likely come into contact with some of the local Barbary macaques, you’ll spend the night by the shores of Bin El Ouidane Lake, one of the largest in the country. A day exploring the winding alleyways and market squares of vibrant Marrakech caps off your tour.

Key activities:

- Spend two days trekking around the rivers and waterfalls of the Middle Atlas Mountains, in Azilal province.
- Spend a full day canyoning around Ouzoud Falls.
- Hike around the impressive rock formations of Cathédrale.
- Explore Bin El Ouidane Lake, one of the largest in the area, encountering Barbary macaques along the way.
- Soak up the magic of Marrakech, wander through its souks and visit the Jemaa el Fna market.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Canyoning holiday in Morocco

Environment

This trip is developed in an area that has not been discovered by tourism yet, the Middle Atlas region. For this reason the people and infrastructure of this area are not habituated to the impact of tourism and we want to keep it this way. There's a big commitment in this sense along this tour and all the people involved are highly aware of this, providing guidance to our travellers. The main activities that we do in this area, canyoning and trekking, are targeted to establish a specific relationship with the environment and the landscapes of the Middle Atlas. Through canyoning, we explore the peculiar waterfalls and rivers of the Azilah province and through trekking we explore its forests. Guidance is provided alongside these activities to help preserve the environment and reduce as much as possible the impact of our visits, especially when it comes to canyoning, as there's an unavoidable impact on the canyons, due to the use of ropes and anchoring systems. For example here we promote and choose to use as much as possible natural anchoring such as trees, rather than perforating the rocks, as to reduce the impact of the activity.

Community

As this tour passes by remote areas that are not used to tourism we try to reduce the impact of our visits to the minimum. The most important part of this tour regarding communities is the previous research done by which we have carefully selected the families and collaborators we work with. We don't stay in the most luxurious hotels, or the ones with highest comfort. We stay in small family-owned places which are trying to develop and at the same time provide the real authenticity and hospitality that characterises this country. For example, in Ouzoud we stay in a small Riad, which enjoys beautiful views of the waterfalls but is an rural side of the town. In La Cathedrale we stay in a local mountain gite, which is used only and occasionally by locals who go trekking in the area. And in Bin El Ouidane we stay in a family-owned campsite by the lake. By choosing these accommodations we contribute to develop a specific type of tourism in the area, more focused on small groups, the environment and nature activities than on mass tourism and we help preserving the authenticity and pureness of it.
