Morocco Surf and Ski - 8 Day - Multi activity Trip
1 week: Marrakech to Marrakech (MSKI8)Just a few hours from Europe, we provide the amazing opportunity to Ski & Surf all in one week. In fact during the tour we ski one day and Surf the next. High up in the Atlas we offer a range of ski runs and lifts. From the top of the chair lift we get a stunning view of Mt Toubkal, the highest point in North Africa at 4167m. Once in Taghazoute on the Atlantic coast, we get our Surf legs on for some awesome Surf. If you throw in some Berber culture, warm winter sunshine and exotic Marrakech, this really is a trip not to be missed...
