Overview

Join us on a unique hiking tour that combines two countries and two continents in the same journey, bridging Europe with Africa! Tour highlights include Southern Spain´s Andalusian region and further explorations across the Straits of Gibraltar into the Kingdom of Morocco. It includes a wide range of attractive hikes, comfortable hotels, tasty authentic dishes, superb wines, transfers in air-conditioned vehicles, and a high level of personal attention by your guiding team. Tour with us through Southern Spain's finest countryside as we visit historic city monuments, National Parks, charming villages, and stunning coastal and beachside locations. From bandit hide-a-ways to pirate coves and the impressive inland rural areas such as Ronda and the Grazalema UNESCO Bio Reserve, we introduce you to the finest features of the south. First time in Spain? This is very much a local guide´s choice tour. The daily pace is balanced with inspiring hikes through beautiful countryside. We use our private coach for tours as well as daily hikes with our guide in towns, some countryside areas, and of course the coast. The days in Morocco allow us to explore North Africa´s stunning nature and urban landscapes, offering glimpses of rural life and how the indigenous Berber people go about their daily lives balancing both traditional and modern ways. Chefchaouen village, considered one of Morocco's most desirable destinations, is painted with many shades of blue. Our comfortable lodgings next to the old quarter (medina) guarantee comfort and relaxation. Our daily hikes, visits to historic and cultural sites, and interactions with local people will give you authentic local experiences. Morocco is a diverse and open society with engaging people who have been hosting visitors from all nationalities for over 50 years. In 1786, Morocco signed a treaty of peace and friendship with the United States, which remains the longest unbroken relationship in U.S. history.
