A mixture of landscapes and city streets as well as the Atlas Mountains, olive groves vast deserts and undeveloped beaches and of course its beautiful ancient Kasbahs
Why therefore the link with ATLANTIS, the lost land of myth and mystery ?
Well if you have been watching the BBC1 Atlantis TV series at 8.15 pm each Saturday night then all will be revealed, for many of the settings used during the filming this fabulous series are based in Morocco. Settings and landscapes that you will in fact discover on the various holidays offered throughout the Ramblers Worldwide or more leisurely Adagio programmes to this mystical destination. Incidentally many of the settings were also used in other lavish film productions such as "Gladiator" " Lawrence of Arabia and even " Game of Thrones"
With the "Exploring Western Morocco " holiday discover enchanting Marrakech along with its souks and Djemaa el Fna Square and enjoy spectacular views of the Toubkal mountain range and the Ourika Valley whilst the "Trail of the Berbers" will allow you to enjoy the spectacular Erg Chebi sand dunes ( as pictured), the valley of the thousand Kasbahs and Ait Ben Haddou, plus the ragged Dades and Todra gorge that you will witness in ATLANTIS, along with the Tizi n' Tichka Pass at 2260 metres over the High Atlas mountains plus a Berber market at Tnerhir
These are just a sample of the wonders of Morocco that will whet your appetite to discover on these walking tours after watching ATLANTIS. Happy Viewing !!
