Top Marrakech excursions that everyone must experience.

Marrakech is probably the most famous Moroccan city, perhaps after Casablanca or maybe Tangier. But still it’s probably the most liked Moroccan city among the tourists. And it’s no wonder why. This city has probably all the characteristics that a wholesome city has. Plus, an international airport, that makes the flight there easy and direct for the people who are interested in visiting this vibrant city.

Marrakech has a lot to offer, from old medieval Islamic architecture in the old town (Medina), to the finest and most prestigious hotels. Also classy bars and nightclubs are the norm in this city, if you’re interested in the life of party.

However, a trip that visits only the city of Marrakech is probably considered incomplete if you didn’t go out of the city with some of the most exiting Marrakech excursions.

Marrakech excursions are full of surprises and novelties. You will get the impression of traveling to another country in another continent with different weather and lifestyle.

To give you an idea. Marrakech excursions can take the ambience of desert and oasis, mountains, valleys and snow, and even sea coast and old buildings.

That’s how the diversity of Marrakech excursions is manifested.

All those experiences that we mentioned, and more are all options in a Marrakech excursion. Stay with us to find out more about this subject.

Desert and Oasis.

Marrakech excursions  as we already said have a wide range of experience. One of those experiences is one that you can have in Palmeraie. This Marrakech excursion takes you to an oasis that is believed to have grown from palm tree seeds that Arab warriors dropped there centuries ago. Aside from the history of this place, the beauty is what we are concerned with, and let us tell you that it’s a good example of how an oasis has to be.

Another desert spot is the Majorelle Gardens. These gardens host the exhibitions of many exotic plants that are truly fascinating. And are also good photography material.

Marrakech excursions that take place in the Moroccan desert also take you to a fortified clay city called Ait Ben Haddo, which is listed by the UNESCO by the way. Those are some very old buildings.

But a visit to the desert will not be considered wholesome without camel rides. And don’t worry that’s the norm in Palemeraie. You will get to travel the desert on the back of a camel if you wanted to. And if you are more into engines, you also get to ride a quad bike.
