Take on this unique Challenge as we trek 2 tough marathons over 2 days through some stunning Moroccan landscape. Through ancient Berber mud-brick villages in the mountains and lush green valleys we will adventure down towards our Saharan finish line with camels and palm trees dotting the landscape, and sand dunes as far as the eye can see.
