There is much more to Morocco than its dynamic cities. Beyond these eclectic mazes lie the stunning Atlas mountains and swathes of Saharan sand stretching for miles. Join an expert on Morocco as we scale the heights of the Atlas mountains and trek on a virtual camel through the desert.

In this conversation, we will escape the cities of Morocco for the grandest horizons that North Africa country can offer. We will take a tour through the many ranges of the Atlas Mountains that ripple across the country, including a virtual climb of North Africa's highest peak, Mount Toubkal. Then, we will saddle up our camels to ride into the country's deep south, where the endless dune seas of the Sahara carry echoes of the ancient trade caravans that once brought salt and gold from Timbuctou to Marrakesh.

Led by an expert on Morocco, travel writer and guidebook author Paul Clammer, this interactive seminar will transport participants to the deserts, dunes, and mountains that bless Morocco. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding of what lies beyond Morocco’s beguiling cities.

Paul Clammer is a travel writer and the author of more than 40 guidebooks for Lonely Planet. He first visited Morocco in 1994, and has been a regular visitor every since, working there as a tour guide and as co-writer on five editions of LP's guidebook to the country. More recently, he has lived in the medina in Fez, where his partner is` restoring a centuries-old traditional Moroccan townhouse.

This conversation is suitable for all ages

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.

Things I Never Knew

I had heard of the Rif, but despite a decent knowledge of geography, I didn’t know it was a mountain range. I also didn’t know that the Atlas range is divided into High, Middle and Anti ranges. I enjoyed learning about some of the villages and also “jumping off” points for trekking in the Atlas ranges and old caravan staging spots. Information about wildlife, especially the Fennec Fox, was unexpected and interesting.

Great program, but more people, please!

This was a great program! Paul covered a lot of ground, literally, through 4 Moroccan mountain ranges plus the edge of the Sahara desert. Deep knowledge and great enthusiasm. I enjoyed the scenes and discussion of some outdoor markets in small villages. I am always pleased when Context programs include some attention to the past and current lifestyles of traditional neighborhoods, villages and rural areas, beyond the natural scenery and wonderful architecture.
