Trekking at the High Atlas, discovering the native Berber culture, unwinding by the coves, shopping at the traditional markets and tasting the authentic Mediterranean cuisine – if these are your plans for the April holiday, Morocco is the place to be at!

One of the major gateways to Africa, Morocco flaunts its natural and historical wealth! From the arid Shahra to snow-covered Atlas, from colonial remnants to Berberic civilisation – the nation has every ingredient that adds to the popularity of air tickets to a country. This African nation features a perfect blending of nature, adventure, culture and heritage, and this is one of the main reasons behind the roaring demand of seats on flights heading to the region. Travellers on a holiday here get a chance to explore the old Medina, thought-provoking museums, traditional souks and scenic coasts. Besides, during spring, i.e. in April, the country features relatively balmy weather which is ideal for sightseeing and trekking on the High Atlas. Here is a rundown to four holiday activities in Morocco for those planning a trip here in the month.

High Atlas Camping
Affectionately called as Idraren Draren by the Berbers (ancient tribal community of Morocco), the High Atlas peak is the trekkers’ paradise and arguably the most scenic area in Morocco. This is the highest summit of the High Atlas mountain range and is often included in the itineraries of most adventure freaks disembarking flights at this African country in April, as arguably this is the ideal time to trek the summit. Various travel agents and tour operators offer highly rewarding deals for camping tours to the mountaineers arriving here. Standard packages include accommodation, air tickets, foods and medical attention. Adrenal junkies landing on flights at Morocco to hike this rocky terrain are advised to carry professional mountaineering gears.

Marrakech Medina
Marrakech, another tourist lure of Morocco is one of the UNESCO world heritage sites and welcomes thousands of tourists every year. For holidaymakers, especially for people having a special interest in ancient Islamic culture, a tour to the Medina (old city) is being worth the cost of flight tickets. While in this old city, take a quick tour to explore the rich heritage of this civilization. Palais de la Bahia, Dar Si Said, Saadian Tombs, Mellah and Badi Palace are few of many compelling stops among the history lovers landing on flights here. On the other hand, Jardin Majorelle sets nature lovers on a mad scramble for its entry tickets!

The political and administrative capital of Morocco, Rabat is located on the shores of North Atlantic Ocean and possesses almost every essential element to make a perfect holiday experience. This erstwhile ‘‘pirates’ den’’ is now considered as one of the most civilised cities of the nation. A walk through the bustling bazaars will give you a true Moroccan feel, while the stunningly beautiful colonial architectures narrate the stories of Phoenician, Roman, Almohad and Merenid period. Besides, if you are seeking isolation in the lap of nature, you can head to the cove of Bouregreg River. Rabat has limited options for international flights. Hence, most travellers reserving air tickets to visit this city take flights for Casablanca or Marrakech and drive down to the capital of Morocco. Budget travellers can purchase train tickets from Casablanca to reach here.

Another UNESCO heritage site in Morocco, this scenic coastal township was once the colony of Portuguese and now one of the popular holiday destinations in the country. Many archaeologists hold that Essaouira boasts prehistoric remnants. Essaouira truly signifies the real meaning of its names, ‘the wall’ and ‘the wind city of Africa’! The amazingly designed fortifications by the ocean, the slender alleyways, the smell of fish and the moist ground, and the gusty wind often delight people! While nature enthusiasts find the seaside more fascinating, the historians are often found on a quest for tickets to various museums. Essaouira is not only popular among these globetrotters, but also among foodies. Gourmets are advised to savour the delectable Mediterranean delicacies before boarding flights back home.
