Top 10 things to do in Gibraltar, southern Spain & Morocco!

Written By The Travelling Postcard on 1 July 2013 | 23:31

Gibraltar, Spain and Morocco have such an array of activities and tours to cover most peoples likes and just as a taster, organising from kite surfing in Tarifa to paint balling in Sotogrande, doom buggies to horse-riding gazing at the panoramic backdrop of Gibraltar.  Camel riding to cooking your own Moroccan cuisine in Fez, Morocco.  The possibilities are endless; my favourite has to be spending the night in your own self equipped Moroccan tent, comfort at its best, in the middle of the Saharan Dessert, have you ever thought of that?

So below is a list of our top 10 things to do in the region.
10.          Mountain Biking       

Sometimes there are just certain Routes you have to take! Why not enjoy the pleasure of bike riding and unrivalled routes… although at number 10, this certainly is an experience as you pace yourself through some routes which you wouldn't call on this region.

9.            Gibraltar’s World War II Tunnel networks. 

A must do while you are in Gibraltar, if you reside in here, then come and visit this magnificent network of tunnels and gather a taste of our historic heritage, the tunnels allow you the ability to experience a taste of life for the soldiers of this ‘garrison in the dark'.

8.            Quads in Tarifa. 

At number 8…… an experience to be lived with a group of friends. Having various organised quad routes we are looking to thrill you whilst you enjoy the journey around the Natural Park of the Straights. Driving through tunnels, over the high dunes and across beaches, rivers and bridges, all this while climbing and descending exhilarating heights.

7.            Horse Riding
Ever wanted to live an unforgettable rising experience, ride a horse through the beaches and dunes of the region, whilst you gaze at Gibraltar’s fantastic backdrop.

6.            Wreck diving    

Gibraltar's has over 30 wrecks to explore; Gibraltar's diving gives another dimension to the adventurer.  Europa Reef is a well-known point for divers and offers the more adventurous underwater explorer the chance to find caves, drop offs and to see actual anchors of Phoenician and Roman ships that still remain on the sea bed. Join us on one of our Photography Tours to find out for yourself!  

5.            Windsurfing

We can organise wind surfing trips for you and your group. Imagine the wind acting as your motor and the sea as your destination, come and experience how the locals get away from the hustle and bustle.  With so much wind and such a beautiful setting windsurfing is an incredibly exciting activity.

4.            Hot Air Ballooning 

Enjoy the beauty of Marrakesh from above by taking a ride on our hot air balloon flight from La Palmeraie in the north-east corner of the city. As you fly over villages you will have superb panoramic views across the palm grove against the backdrop of the breath-taking Atlas Mountains.  This has to go in an number 4 simply because the top three are simply superb.  However, I would advise doing this next time you travel to Morocco.

3.            Camel Treks in the Sahara

Visiting the Sahara Dessert is a once in a lifetime experience. Envisage riding a camel through the Sahara with nothing around you and no sound apart from the footsteps of the camel on the soft sand. The sky is clear in the day and packed with millions of bright stars at night and a truly peaceful experience, rarely known to most of the busy western world.

2.            Sahara Desert Adventures     
Travel through the Sahara like you get to see in films. Get a group together for this as the bedroom tents fits up to three single beds or one large king size bed with the comfort of a hotel room. Each of the tents is linked to each other by smaller compartments which hold facilities such as hot shower, WC and a sink. The restaurant tent has four tables and the whole camp is covered by colourful Berber carpets and cushions.

1.            Skydiving

If you have ever dreamed of such a thing... why not try it.... After all you only live once... you will feel so upbeat you will want to dive again. We respect that you may want to start small... therefore why not try a tandem jump, where without an extensive prior training, you will live an exciting experience, connected to a highly qualified instructor.  I have placed Skydiving as our Number 1 Experience because we feel it is the most anticipated and adventurous really putting you off your comfort zone!
