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.

Is it right for your family?
This is a walking trip, although mules are available to ride for tired children. Accommodation in the mountains is in simple, traditional Berber houses, but in Marrakech we use a three-star hotel chosen for its proximity to the bazaar.
