When you think about Morocco, one of the last things that comes to mind is stargazing. However, it is an ideal location since, while the majority of us live in areas with high population density and light pollution, which hinder the natural starry sky, there are parts in Morocco with no city lights. Merzouga Erg Chebbi sand dunes are one of Morocco's most spectacular and unusual stargazing destinations. Try a camel trip into the Sahara for an incredible night of stargazing under one of the desert's most beautiful skies. The stars are spectacular in the Sahara, and the sky is gloomy.

5 DAYS DESERT ASTRONOMY

Morocco's latitude is also crucial. At +30 degrees, it's close enough to the equator to see southern hemisphere constellations that you won't see in central Europe. If you time your trip correctly, you can see passing meteor showers, Saturn's rings, and distant galaxies like Andromeda, 2.5 million light years away.


Morocco Astronomy Tour for 5 Days includes exploration of Moroccan geology and culture. Welcome to this one-of-a-kind and exclusive opportunity to explore the sky of Southern Morocco at night!
