We walk through the Dades Gorges, a spectacular canyon 25 km long with beautiful landscapes where the houses blend with rocks and where the Dades river runs slowly from the high plateaus of limestone. We will travel to Desert Erg Chebbi, near Merzouga, with the possibility of ascending to the Great Dune, and view from above the vast expanse of desert on the border with Algeria. We will continue on to the Todra Gorge, located on the east side of the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. These Gorge are famous world-wide for being one of the most amazing rocky canyons. Its waters are crystal clear, fresh and clean. You will be able to explore this area on foot and enjoy the magnificent, rich landscapes, as well as various Kasbahs, settlements and ruins.
The Todra Gorge forms a canyon with 300m high walls, well known for its high quality rock for climbing. The canyon is formed by red limestone rock, so adherent you can place your feet without the fear of ever slippling. Down in the valley, the river flows through the oasis of the Todra with palm and olive trees growing on its shores, as well as other crops. A great place to climb because of its wide range of difficulty and level, allowing beginners and experts to enjoy the ascents and spectacular views from the top.

——— ABOUT THE COUNTRY ———-
Morocco is the closest African country to Europe, only 14 kilometers separates Africa from Europe, but probably the 14 kilometers of the world where more changes are a cultural, religious, culinary, social and economic level. Although it is a country that is developing rapidly, it is a place of contrasts, where new technologies are found while still many people go in the donkey, nomadic children and / or live in caves. It is a place that offers a lot of different landscapes from forests and mountains to deserts and long and beautiful beaches. Touring your geography, meeting locals and visiting their villages is a very enriching experience and full of learning, you will love it 🙂

“I have always had eclectic passions and interests. The knowledge and experience I have acquired in the different disciplines I practice (be it visual arts, movement arts, massage therapies, languages…) relate in strange ways and nourish one another. Eventually I found the common thread of all these: education; transmitting what I know to others, which ties all of them together. My objective is to merge the rigorous and efficient “”Cambridge”” language teaching methods with the fun and communicative Acro teaching techniques, and add a creative edge from my arts education. Out of all of these, Acro has been by far the one which has most taught me about myself and others. It is a huge pleasure to teach this awesome, fun discipline, and to keep learning so much from my peers and students, no matter what age, background, or capacities they have.”
