The walking in the mountains was a fantastic experience, helped by our perfect guide Ibrahim. He was intelligent, kind, cheerful and looked after us very well. He could answer all our questions on flora, fauna, geology, history and local culture. He walked at a steady phase that suited all and made sure everyone was happy. We could not have asked for more.
Our favourite place to stay was the Azzaden trekking lodge where we were welcomed warmly with slippers, dates, milk and a hand wash. The food was excellent and the breakfast was very impressive. The hospitality of Mohamed was second to none. The view from the balcony was amazing and when it got dark the stars came out in their millions. ( we did however not manage to find out in which bed Daniel Craig had slept).
When we reached Kasbah Toubkal the weather had turned cold and wet so we could not enjoy the roof terrace and the outdoor area.
Riad Tzara was excellent and Naima, Khadija, Abdul and Mohamed looked after our every need. We had dinner one night on the roof of Dar Hanane where the view over the city was great. We also liked the cozy roof terrace in Riad Tzara where the perfect temperature was in the afternoon after escaping from the noises and fumes of the Medina.

Already planning our next one!

Morocco is quite simply, an incredible trekking destination. The Atlas Mountains host several 4,000m+ peaks and the mountain landscape is dramatic and beautiful, dotted with ancient small Berber villages and rushing melt water streams.
The geography of Morocco is dominated by the High Atlas Mountains which form a rift through Central Morocco. The Atlas Mountains present a enticing combination of verdant valleys, arid peaks, fascinating Berber villages and virtually deserted trails. The main attractions for trekking Morocco are Toubkal, from Marrakesh, the valleys and villages of the Azzaden and Dk'nt valleys and the delightful off-the-beaten track M'goun Massif.
One of the premier highlights of a walking holiday in Morocco is climbing Jbel Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa at 4,167m. Covered in snow in the winter months, the altitude of Toubkal is a welcome respite from the high summer temperatures in the Atlas valleys. The trek up Toubkal is fairly strenuous but is accessible for most fit hill walkers. The hard work is worth it as the view from the top of Toubkal is out of this world encompassing the Marrakesh plain, the northern parts of the High Atlas and Sahara. Toubkal is only a couple of hours drive from Marrakesh. By contrast, the M'goun Massif offers superb off the beaten path trekking in Morocco. Featuring spectacular lush valleys and rich in ancient Berber villages such as Megdaz, perhaps one of the finest Berber villages in the High Atlas Mountains.
Other highlights of trekking in Morocco include the Rif Mountains, barely explored by travellers and offering gentler hiking and magnificent cedar forests. Trekking in Morocco isn't just about the walking either, the area is rich in cultural history, the Berbers are a proud people who have fiercely guarded their independence and culture over the years, and are famous for their hospitality. Food consists primarily of cous cous, tagines and brochettes (kebabs) blending elements of Berber cuisine Arab spices and Spanish ingredients.
All of our trekking tours in Morocco include the services of a guide, chef and mules to carry your packs and we use local Moroccan Mountain guides to offer you a more authentic experience.
