21 01 2008
Morocco may be a good choice for an affordable winter holiday destination, the Times has reported.
According to the newspaper, a number of package holidays are available to the north African country, including adventure tours featuring camel treks through the desert and guided walks, with evenings spent in a traditional Bedouin-style camp.
Families may be interested in another package holiday on offer, which includes desert safaris, a visit to the valley and oasis of Tazzarine and time in the bustling city of Marrakesh.
People seeking some winter sun in Morocco may be able to take advantage of current last-minute holiday deals, with flights available from a number of UK airports, including Heathrow.
For athletes looking to maintain their fitness while enjoying a desert getaway, tourism site Morocco.com has recommended the country's annual Sand Marathon, where runners brave the heat to complete a seven-day race across the Sahara.
The event is scheduled for spring 2008.
