Things to Do in Morocco

Windsurfing, Agadir and Essaouira

Kasbah Glaoui, Telouet
This amazing relic conjures up images of horse-mounted Arab and Berber warriors riding through plains of Telouet. It is truly inspiring and well worth a visit.
International Arts Festival, Asilah

Souks, all through Morocco Wherever you are you should always take a turn towards the local souks and feast your eyes. There is so much on display here that you can literally spend hours just looking at it. Prices are usually not too bad either.
Skiing season is between February and April and this wonderful, unassuming resort boasts a ski lift and terrain to suit all levels and styles. If you are fond of skiing you should definitely make a stop here. harbor is a delightful diversion, filled with colorful boats that have been carefully decorated by local fishermen.
Rock Carvings, near Ouka’meden
If ancient civilizations interest you, then no doubt you’d enjoy looking at these great pre-historic rock carvings of animals.
Trekking, the Atlas Mountains
Whether trekking appeals to you or not, a trek through the Atlas Mountains can leave you flabbergasted at the heavenly natural beauty of the area.
Unless you already have an affinity for these animals, you probably shouldn’t try a camel trek that lasts longer than a day. While the experience can feel authentic and provide an interesting way to see the sights, it can also make you feel sore and tired. Despite these after-effects, it is still well worth the effort.
Djemaa el Fna, Marrakesh
Go to this amazing city square festival to enjoy a conglomeration of acrobats, story tellers,musicians and snake charmers. Every night people of interest get together in the city square to entertain and delight (and of course, make some money).
Goats, Souss Valley – Agadir
If you want to see a truly unique and amazing sight, have a look at the goats of the Souss Valley. These goats naturally climb Argan trees in order to forage on the higher limbs. It is comical and astounding at the same time.
