Trekking in the Atlas Mountains… Incredible!
If you love a good walk or perhaps you are looking for a holiday with a little more culture combined with a feeling of achievement then you may want to think about trekking in The Atlas Mountains.
Trekking is growing in popularity as people are ditching the beach for some decent exercise, great air and stunning views.
For those of you that may not know, The Atlas Mountains are situated in Morocco (North Africa), about 1 ½ hours from Marrakesh airport. Like most mountain ranges, in the winter there’s snow and in the summer there’s sun. The setting is absolutely stunning and the mountains are inhabited by the ‘Original’ Moroccans – The Berber Tribes.
If you’re looking for culture then you really have to look no further. Many of the Berber tribes retain traditional ways of life and are incredibly friendly people.

There are a couple of fantastic places to stay in the mountains, notably The Kasbah Du Toubkal along with some of the Berber houses too.
We suggest you start by taking a look at the Trekking In Morocco website and gauging what level of trek you want to do. From 1/2 day to 40 days trekking, there is certainly something for all levels of fitness.
