Overview

Book
This wonderful winter sun walking holiday takes us amongst the remote mountains of the Jebel Sahro in Morocco. Lying between the High Atlas Mountains and the Sahara, the beautiful mountain region of Jebel Sahro offers the perfect opportunity to trek in a genuine off the beaten track destination. Starting in magical Marrakech we head to the heart of the Jebel Sahro and hike amongst rocky peaks, hidden valleys and green oases to find the welcoming Berber in traditional villages. Walking along quiet trails through a variety of spectacular scenery, we head to the summit of the highest peak in the Jebel Sahro range, Amalou n'Mansour (2712m). This amazing area offers warm days and crystal clear visibility whilst surrounded by superb scenery with views that stretch from the Jebel Sahro to the snow-capped peaks of the High Atlas. A drive across the Atlas Mountains sees us back in UNESCO Marrakech with a free day to explore the colourful Djemaa-el-Fna and souks. Exploring Marrakech provides a fantastic end to this two week walking holiday in the undiscovered Jebel Sahro. If you’re looking for a trekking holiday that also offers a real insight into Berber traditions amongst an undiscovered area of Morocco with time to take in the colourful sights and sounds of Marrakech, then this is the perfect choice!

A GENUINE SMALL GROUP EXPERIENCE - THE SECRET OF OUR SUCCESS IN MOROCCO

We are proud to say that the majority of our holidays in Morocco are limited to a maximum group size of 12, ensuring we leave only our footprints on the trails whilst enjoying a genuine small group adventure. We've been taking our clients walking, trekking and mountaineering for almost thirty years so we know the ingredients of a good guide and a successful group adventure. Those who are new to trekking in Morocco will take particular comfort in the presence of our experienced Moroccan guides, who we believe are the best in the business.

We had excellent leaders, always attentive to needs, patient, good-humoured. They inspired complete confidence, and were very good company. One could not have asked for better. Things I most enjoyed: - The mountain landscape was like nothing I've seen before; the evidence in the formations of geological activity quite spectacular. - The insight into the lives of the local people, their agriculture, the labour and skill required to live in such a harsh environment. - The opportunity to spend time camping with Berber muleteers, to glimpse the nature of their lives, culture - great singers round the camp fire! - The food! Such variety of salads and tagines - all beautifully presented - Exploring Marrakech, including a hammam visit!

Immensely enjoyable. Highly Memorable. Great Value for Money. Excellent tour group. Enchanting support crew, cook and trek leader. SUPERB and one that will stay in the memory long, hard and very toasty. SUBLIME! ALL expectations were surpassed. This was a superbly planned, run and executed trekking holiday. AWESOME Stuff!

The service from the staff was always prompt. The guide and the cook as well as the muleteers was always excellent. The food was really outstanding. The muleteers took good care of their mules and always set up our camps before we arrived. Our guide really was personable and cared about each person on the trip. I would go on a trip anywhere with him as the guide. He told us what to expect each day, and really shared a lot of historical info about Morocco and also shared his own life with all of us. I think this trip is very fortunate to have such a good guide. He wanted each of us to have the best experience possible. I really enjoyed the holiday. I would go on my next trip. I thought it was so well organized and everyone was always very pleasant to us. My favorite days were the long hike of 1100 meters when we started in the early early morning in darkness with headlight and eventually ended up high in the mountains. The following day through the Gates with lots of rock formations was the most scenic of the days we hiked. I was not sure what to expect in terms of the other people and their hiking abilities. We had a very cohesive group of 8 and we all walked about the same pace which made the walking very pleasurable.I read about you in the Lonely Planet book and looked up your trips on the internet. I wanted to go to an area in Morocco that was not heavily touristy and thought Jebel Sahro sounded like a good place to hike. It was a great place

Very impressed with how organised you are both in the UK and on the trek. Our support crew were very good in getting the camp set up before we arrived there and preparing our meals.

I had an excellent holiday, and managed the walk very well, even though I tripped up over the rocks and bruised my shin. My first experience and in retrospect the description of the trek was very honest. The guide was very knowledgeable about his country and happy to talk and answer all our questions every night. This made our holiday very interesting and put the country and the people all in context-brilliant. He was excellent and funny too. I Most enjoyed the views, the pace of the guide- not too fast! The guide chatting with us in the evening and joining in to tell us about the country was a real highlight.

What I enjoyed the most - Getting to understand the semi-nomadic way of life and environment. Appreciating the village life, enhanced by the guide description of his own life as a farmer. Ascents giving views of High Atlas and Sahara, Bou Gafer and the colonial history, the birdlife.

A really interesting and very enjoyable trek. The food was excellent. The pace was good. The high altitude valley walking days were fantastic. The route, taking in non-tourist areas, and passing villages and people carrying on their daily lives was really interesting. The hotel for the last night of trekking was a great idea.

What I most enjoyed - The friendliness of the muleteers but most of all the guide's conversation - very informative and pleasant. Having tea in our chief muleteer's tent (a nomad) was so nice - felt genuinely welcomed. All the cook's meals were very good. The scenery was amazing especially the occasional fertile grove and the rock formations.

Thoroughly enjoyed my trip which was down to the high quality of the support staff and the eclectic mix of fellow travelers. I most enjoyed the opportunity to travel to a part of the world that I would never have visited under my own steam, and understand the history and current changes affecting the peoples we met travelling through this unspoiled part of the world.

Your website particularly user-friendly and easy to navigate, staff always willing to help. I cannot fault the services of Hassan, our trip leader. A great level of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm. The solitude of having the trails to ourselves, the variety of landscape we passed through each day and the opportunities to interact with local villagers along the route. I was looking for a last-minute booking to indulge my sense of adventure, without having to organise it myself. I am already booked onto to a trip in March next year.

Well organised, authentic experience, well within the capabilities of any fit walker- the optional peaks are rough but straightforward and worth the effort for the views. Some beautiful scenery from day three onwards (the first two days are a little dull, with lots of walking on dried up riverbeds) culminating in a fabulous day on Amalou Mansour. Our excellent guide was an interesting and informative man with a wide knowledge of the area and of Moroccan history and its people. Our muleteers were a great bunch, and Abdul, the chef, excelled himself with a wide variety of meals. With the exception of the first campsite, which is a bit grim and on the outskirts of a village, the others were in idyllic locations, though the toilet tent takes a bit of getting used to, and most people made their own arrangements behind a rock! The other trekkers in my group were without exception, committed and interesting people, and with good weather and good company, this was a trip to remember! It can be very cold at night, so take a down jacket, and a good head torch with lots of spare batteries for reading during the long hours of darkness.
