These creatures inhabit the glaciers, mountains, bays, fjords, inlets, pebble beaches, and rugged coastlines, adding to the continent's natural beauty. Moreover, the Weddell Sea is home to one of the largest colonies of Emperor penguins in the world. If that's not enough, the sub-Antarctic destinations of the Falkland Islands and South Georgia offer an equally rich wildlife experience, much of which is exclusive to the region.

10 Day Highlights of Morocco
September 27, 2024 - October 6, 2024

 We've been talking about it and now it's a done deal.  We have wanted to go to Morocco because of its extensive history and varied geography! Morocco doesn't just have paradise beaches and sweeping expanses of desert, it also has mountains! Morocco has two major mountain ranges, the Rif Mountains in the north and the Atlas Mountains stretching through the middle of the country.  Morocco also has four imperial cities: Marrakech, Fes, Meknes and Rabat.  Rabat is the current capital city. Although a modern city at first glance, it has several interesting historical attractions, such as the Kasbah of the Oudaias, the old medina and the Hassan Tower. We will visit all four of those cities including Casablanca and several others during this 10 day tour.
