Trekking | Atlas Mountains

Morocco · 2 nights

Explore remote Berber villages and the lush valleys of the Atlas Mountains on foot.


Head into the hills and on up to the mountains on a three day trek that will take you past verdant valleys and Berber villages where you'll stay in the rustic homes of the people that have long inhabited the fertile land on the mountainside.

Push yourself to new heights as you make your way through dense pine forests to the Oukaimden pass, famous for its pre-historic carvings that have long been hidden under the snowy peaks of the Atlas Mountains.

Gain real insight into the area, its geography and its history, offering context to the breath-taking panoramas you'll reach, all by foot, over the course of three action-filled days in nature.
