We would like to invite you to an exciting photo tour to Morocco "From the Atlantic to the Sahara".
Morocco is like a cocktail of cultures and natural landscapes.
You can meet here sand dunes of the Sahara, snowy aiquilles of the High Atlas, the Mediterranean olive groves. Morocco is a mixture of nationalities with an incredible hue of oriental tales. This is a combination of one of the most ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean and African identity.

We will spend two and a half days in the sands of the Sahara. We will take pictures of sand dunes and incredible starry sky away from the light-striking of cities. Have you ever observed stars in the desert? Just for the sake of this view, the Sahara is worth visiting.

We will visit the amazing and camera-friendly Essaouira on the Atlantic coast, where fishermen bring their catch in the early morning. We will take photos of the old Portuguese fort, famous fishing boats in the harbor. In Marrakesh, we will see the bazaars, Jemaa el Fna square and Medina square, palaces and mosques. We will take pictures in the wind streets of this unique city.

We will pass through the mountains of the High Atlas, see snow-covered mountain peaks with a height of more than 4,000 meters. We will take pictures of its flowering valleys.

Also we will visit the Berber fortress Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou, built of clay, and photograph it at dawn and dusk.

We will see the famous tanneries of Fes, attracting photographers from around the world, visit the beautiful Chefchaouen with its sky-blue houses and take lots of great pictures.

And there would be Moroccan riads with cool courtyards, wonderful oriental cuisine, excellent company and master classes with discussions of the pictures taken!

Morocco is an amazing country of contrasts; it perfectly combines untouched nature and ancient architecture, the original traditions of ancient tribes and skills of local craftspeople.

On the one hand, Morocco is washed by the waters of the majestic Atlantic Ocean, and on the other, there begin endless sands of the Sahara. Between the ocean and the desert, there are the Atlas Mountains, accessible for skiing in winter.

It should be mentioned that in Morocco you can find lots of wonderful souvenirs.
