The outlying area, among the most beautiful ones in Morocco
Agadir is an unmissable place. The Souss Valley and, a bit further, the peaks of the Lesser Atlas Mountains, form wonderful compositions as only nature can do. This backcountry is rich in possibilities for you to immerse yourself in the joys of exploration and green tourism.
If you’re a lover of green and wide spaces, the Souss Massa National Park is not to be overlooked. It is home to extraordinary wildlife: 250 bird species, including the famous bald ibis, along with antelopes, boars and mongooses. Hike through this untamed wilderness for an unforgettable experience. Elsewhere in the park, at Tifnit, the rock walls will catch your eye, for they are riddled with the carved-out homes of ancient cave dwellers that were abandoned long ago.
The vegetation growing, flourishing and blossoming throughout the region, is just stunning. Fruit-laden trees like almond trees and argan trees – the source of the famous oil – become even more attractive after the winter. Flowers bloom, feeding honey production in the area. There are scenic routes devoted to these flowers that you can follow to learn about the know-how, the culinary tradition and the lifestyle of the region.
