12 DAYS -- PRIVATE ESCORTED LAND TOUR

HOSTED BY A MEMBER OF TEAM CLARKSON WITH A MINIMUM OF 15 GUESTS
MAY 13 TO 24, 2022

WHY YOU WILL LOVE IT!

MOROCCO is a mystical and fascinating country distinguished by its Berber, Arabian and European cultural influences. On our 12-day small group hosted tour you will experience the best that Morocco has to offer: from ancient imperial cities, to medinas, kasbahs and souks…from a blue coastline, to verdant fields and wine lands, and dry desert… Morocco has it all. 

In its recent past, Morocco regained its independence in 1956 from French and Spanish protectorates. It has a population of roughly equal to that of Canada's at 37 million,  With an area of 710,850 sq. m., Morocco is roughly the size of Canada's western provinces of Manitoba at 647,797 sq. km, and Alberta at 661,8548 sq. km. Its official languages are Arabic and Berber with French widely spoken.  A kingdom, King Mohammed VI of Morocco was born in 1963.

The month of May is a good time to travel and experience Morocco.  In May,  Morocco is warm, fairly dry, and windy, with balmy evenings. After spring rains in March and April, the foliage is a vibrant green in the mountains, making outdoor adventures particularly inviting. In the Atlas Mountains, the average temperature in May is a comfortable 22° Celsius.
