Highlights

Les Gorges Du Todra (Todra Gorge)

Todra Gorges are a series of limestone river canyons in the eastern part of the High Atlas Mountains in Morocco.

Both the Todgha and neighbouring Dades Rivers are responsible for carving out these deep cliff-sided canyons, on their final 40 kilometres through the mountains.


Gorges Dadés

The Dadès Gorge are a series of rough-cut mountain valleys carved by the Dadès River. The river originates in the High Atlas Mountains and flows some 320 kms southwest before joining the Draa River at the edge of the Sahara. The many-colored walls are thrilling to ride through.
