Ecotourism in Marrakech
In recent years, ecological issues and respect for the environment have started to take a place in our daily lives. Not because it's trendy, but because it's more and more urgent to think about what we've been blessed with.
And just through some simple daily activities, we can each make some changes that are environmentally friendly.
In Marrakech, eco-tourism options are plentiful. In fact, Marrakech is internationally known for its favourable eco-tourism practices, and was awarded ISO 14 011 certification for its efforts.
Cycling is one environmentally friendly option. With friends or riding solo, it's also a healthy way to see the city. In Marrakech, RentBee offers a range of bikes and Marrakech By Bike provides a great opportunity to discover the ins and outs of the old Marrakech medina.
Meharees, are another great option. Discover the beauty of Morocco by camel. Locaquad provides the opportunity to discover the Palmeraie region of Marrakech on the back of a dromadary.
Perhaps you'd like to consider hiking. The Atlas Mountains are just a stone's throw away and lead to the Toubkal summit.
Or for a walk, the medina provides the opportunity to step back in time and discover secret alleyways and architectural jewels. And with 900,000 m2 of green space, the Menara Gardens, filled with olive trees and great sites, is a great place for a stroll. Or head over to the Majorelle Gardens and walk among the plants from all continents as you admire the wonderful landscape and former home of Yves Saint Laurent.
