High Atlas Adventure

8 Days

A family activity holiday to exotic Morocco. Explore Berber tribe, adventure through the famous Atlas mountains and experience bazaars in Marrakech.

8 Days

You can...

  • Meet the friendly Berber tribe
  • Ride a mule up a mountain!
  • Have fun haggling in a bazaar
  • Learn to cook a tajine stew
  • Walk in the dramatic Atlas mountains
  • See fire-eaters and sword-swallowers

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 and traditional Berber tribe.

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. You'll return to the vibrant city of Marrakech, and have free time to wander through the lively bazaar and colourful souks. At the end of the trip we recommend an extension to the old coastal port of Essaouira or more time in Marrakech.
