Djemaa_el_Fna-marrakech

     Between tradition and modernity, Marrakech is the promise of incomparable sensations. Strolling through the Jemaa El-Fna square and the souks with their shimmering colors and oriental smells, the red city answers your desire for a change of scenery with a snap of the fingers. 

     Horse-drawn carriage rides, sunny terraces, traveling artists and other day and night activities will punctuate your stay in Morocco.

     You will be able to admire all the architectural richness of the Medina by visiting one of its many riads, small oriental palaces organized around a central patio, or you can recharge your batteries at the Menara, a vast garden with a basin emblematic of the city.

     Marrakech leaves the choice to its visitors by drawing on its incredible diversity. You just have to leave the ramparts to be immersed in contemporary Morocco. 

     The districts of Guéliz and Hivernage offer the most modern infrastructures, luxury boutiques, and international ready-to-wear stores as well as wide, airy avenues; all in keeping with Marrakech's unique character.

     Sign of a growing economic effervescence, they are also festive and cultural places with the presence of the Palais des Congrès and the splendid Théâtre Royal. 

     Enjoy Marrakech at night by taking over the many themed venues, trendy clubs and traditional evenings that reflect the joie de vivre of its inhabitants.

     In 2016, Marrakech will host the Cop22 to combat climate change, as a recognition of its new international stature and its formidable reception capacity.

Sport, between earth and sky

     Marrakech loves sports! Equipped with the most modern infrastructures, the city offers you a host of facilities and activities to quench your thirst for sensations.

     With finely designed greens and courses adapted to all levels, Marrakech's golf courses are a must! The city's courses give you the opportunity to indulge your passion in the midst of splendid settings and on original courses designed by the best architects.

     A little out of the way from the center, a palm grove is an ideal place for family outings. In the middle of luxuriant vegetation, you can go for a ride on horseback or quad bike.

     For even more thrills, leave the mainland and fly away to discover Marrakech from the skies. Aboard a hot-air balloon, you will contemplate the pearl of southern Morocco, and let yourself be overwhelmed by the poetry of a balloon flight.

     Need more dynamism? Rent a microlight and fly over the city and the surrounding mountains as you wish.


     On the golf courses or, high above, in the Moroccan sky, in Marrakech, you will be filled with emotions!

Playground mountain

     The ochre walls of Marrakech lean against the Atlas Mountains. These steep reliefs invite adventure: you can walk on their slopes, cross them with airlifts and you can also hurtle down from snowy peaks.

     For the most enduring, dare the ascent of Djebel Toubkal. Under the guidance of a guide, you crawl over the trails, you sleep in bivouac, finally, you reach the top of the mountain: the views of the surroundings are magnificent and reward you for your efforts!


Toubkal-marrakech

      Adjacent to the Toubkal National Park, an eco-responsible nature reserve will welcome you with the largest aerial course in Africa. You will be full of sensations thanks to the zip lines, accro-branches and aerial bridge!

     The mountainous surroundings of Marrakech also give you the opportunity to indulge in the pleasures of skiing. Rising to 3200 meters, the Oukaïmeden ski area offers all the expected amenities and allows you to ski the day before, in the evening, to join the gentler atmosphere of Marrakech.

    Finally, 40 kilometers to the south of the city, the Lalla Takerkoust lake is an ideal playground for motorsports enthusiasts: quad biking and jet ski rides are organized there and guarantee their share of sensations.

     The hinterland of Marrakech is another world! Just a few minutes from the comforts of the city, you discover a wild but welcoming nature, wide-open spaces where you can spend your free time!

A dive into the effervescence of the souks of Marrakech

     A sinuous alley with stalls overflowing with food; an impression of abundance and the echo of lively negotiations to fill the air with a joyful noise: no doubt, you are in the middle of one of the famous souks of Marrakech!

     Within these markets, the arts of tradition are put in the spotlight. Pass under a door: you enter the souk of Semmarine, perhaps one of the most interesting in Morocco.

     In its alleys, Amazigh and Arab handicrafts converge. Each has its stalls on which are spread out ornamented candles, earthenware and lighting fixtures.

     Elsewhere in the city, other markets set up their stalls. Go to the Attarine souk, dedicated to the work of brass: bronzed or gilded, they come in all shades, forming sumptuous tableware always delicately worked. 

     Further on, the tanners' and dyers' souk gives pride of place to leather of all kinds: slippers and leather goods invade the alleys bathed in the heady smell of tanned skins under the Moroccan sun.


     Marrakech is also that: a small concentrate of Moroccan craftsmanship! Browse from souk to souk and discover the treasures of everyday arts!
