Atlas Valleys & Villages Comfort Trek

Strongly recommended year round, these Atlas Valleys and Villages trekking routes are perfect for those looking to enjoy the best of the Mountains whilst avoiding the more basic village gites and camping options used on our traditional Atlas Valleys and Villages treks. The routes offer excellent mountain scenery and traditional Berber villages within the Imlil and Toubkal National Park area. And because they stay below the snowline, they are accessible in the winter to all regardless of experience.

Private Trek Adventure 2 - 4 days

'From Price' is the average price per person for ground arrangements for two people sharing.

Flights are typically an additional $257 per person economy class from London

Itinerary

Overview

The area of the Atlas Mountains close to Marrakech offers some of the best trekking in the world. It offers stunning mountain scenery, snow-capped mountains topping over 4,000m, traditional earth built Berber Villages and a great trekking infrastructure. Although many people want to climb Mount Toubkal (Morocco’s highest peak), the direct route from the main trailhead at Imlil doesn’t give a lot of exposure to the diversity of mountain scenery and Berber Villages that the Atlas Mountains can offer. In that regard these treks more than surpass the main Toubkal route. All the routes offered pass through the beautiful Azzadene Valley (at the head of which sits snow-capped Toubkal and its sister mountains) and offer an opportunity to walk through some characterful Berber Villages.

These treks vary in length from 2-4 days using only comfortable overnight accommodation with private ensuite rooms guaranteed. They are an upgrade option from our more traditional Atlas Valleys and Villages treks which use basic village gites and camping.

This trek is available to be booked independently (including transfers from Marrakech) or we can put together a full itinerary and quote to combine your trek with any of Marrakech, Essaouira, The Atlantic Coast and Sahara Desert.
