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. At the end of the trip we recommend an extension to the old coastal port of Essaouira or more time in Marrakech.
