Highlights of Myanmar

Everything went to plan and again WE gave us a wonderful holiday. “with World Expeditions you will be travelling with like-minded people.” Its true! On every trip we found that the people were of a similar mindset. I don’t know how its done, but others in the party agreed that that had been their experience also. Lovely to do business with World Expeditions yet again.

High Atlas Trek

A superb introduction to the mountains and traditions of Morocco. This trip combines visits to the medinas and riads of Marrakesh with a trek through Berber villages in the High Atlas Mountains. We follow trails through traditional Berber villages to alpine pastures set beneath the impressive backdrop of the High Atlas mountain range. An ascent of Jebal Toubkal (4167m), the highest mountain in Morocco, is an optional bonus on this exhilarating trek. Travel to the coast and the remarkable ancient port town of Essaouira after your trek where there is time to meander along the narrow lanes, chat to local artisans or just relax in one of the many cafes. The houses here are whitewashed with painted blue doors and shutters, giving the feel that you could be in a Mediterranean village in Europe.
