Middle East & North Africa
A true centre of world affairs from ancient times, the Middle East abounds with history and mystery.

Morocco is a rich melting pot of people, places and possibilities, and as such offers tourists a great range and breadth of hiking holidays and treks. Morocco has everything from built up city areas to warm Mediterranean seas and everything in between. You can go sightseeing and investigate the Souks and alleys of Casablanca and Rabat. You can go on a Moroccan hiking tour across oceans of sand. You can follow the ancient Moorish trails to the Mediterranean and see across the straits of Gibraltar. The opportunities available are vast, and all are perfect for trekking, walking and hiking in Morocco.

In Jordan, visit the ancient red rose city of Petra and spend the night under the starts at a desert camp in Wadi Rum. A truely spectacular experience! Lebanon is a country of diverse regions with beautiful coastline, acres of cedar forests and wine producing valleys. Not to mention the ancient Roman sites.

The Holy Land is home to thought provoking names such as Nazareth, Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Masada. Walking in this region leads you from the green valleys and forests of the north to the rocky mountains and hills of the Judean Desert.
