Geography study trips to Morocco
There are multiple places in Morocco relevant to geography. In the foothills of the High Atlas lies the rural landscape of Amizmiz. This location is perfect for groups to absorb their surroundings, take in a quaint town, and assess the urban pulls and pushes. By capturing the population size, pupils are able to evaluate how resources are managed and get an insight into the local culture. This is particularly the case when it comes to traditional agriculture.
If you’re looking for a spot absolutely relevant to the topic of Water Management, Barrage de Lalla Takerkoust lies just on the outskirts of Amizmis. Barrage de Lalla Takerkoust is the largest reservoir in the region that makes for an ideal day trip for those who want to get out of the city and admire stunning views.
Bringing learning to life!
Another geographical must is the spectacular mountain range, High Atlas. Tourism is a key discussion point at the foot of this location, with a small settlement in and around the area.
Take the path up the mountain and your school group will be amazed to find their textbooks have been brought to life! The entire region is teeming with natural beauty, from the wooded hillsides to the awe-inspiring rock strata. Other highlights that offer geographical learning in this spot include local farming, irrigated valley floors, and water-eroded gullies, to name a few.
