A wonderful walking experience in the Atlas Mountains. As well as exploring the atmospheric bazaar of old Marrakech, you’ll enjoy the tranquil pace of life in the remote villages of the High Atlas. Easy day-walks will introduce you to mountain villages inhabited by the friendly Berber tribe, who still retain their traditional ways of life.
Once you’ve acclimatised, we’ll set off on a trek deeper into the hills, through stunning mountains where life has stood still for centuries. At the end of the trip, we highly recommend an extension to the old coastal port of Essaouira.
Walking is one of our favourite ways of travelling and the trek in the Atlas range allows you to reach areas that are well off the beaten track. In the Sahara Desert you ride camels out to camp at an oasis and, during your stay in the Atlas Mountains, you’ll mingle with the friendly Berber people in their traditional villages.
For those wanting to wind down at the end of the trip there is the option to extend it and visit the relaxing and atmospheric sea port of Essaouira, Our itineraries undoubtedly covers the best that Morocco has to offer and provides a good balance of relaxation, sightseeing and activity.
