Overview

Book
Rich in culture, dramatic scenery, towering peaks and local wildlife, this amazing adventure holiday in Morocco is described as one of the greatest mountain journeys in the world. As a highlight of Morocco, the magnificent High Atlas Mountains provide the inspiration for this fantastic trekking holiday.   From the picturesque and cultural rich Bougmez Valley we head across the spectacular High Atlas Range on an epic trekking adventure. We’ll visit remote villages of the Berbers, hike through uninhabited valleys and camp on mountain pastures used by nomadic shepherds. Alongside being immersed in Berber culture, we’ve included the summits of three High Atlas Peaks – the captivating peak of Mgoun (4068 metres), off the beaten track Anghomar (3608m) and the highest peak in Morocco and North Africa, Jebel Toubkal (4167m).  This excellent journey starts and finishes in Marrakech, home to stunning architecture, magical souks and a bustling ancient medina.

This trip was everything I had hoped and more; more beautiful, more scenically varied, more fun and more relaxing! The scenery was superb and superbly varied, the weather fabulous and the 15 days of hiking improved my fitness considerably without being over-testing. I loved every minute of the trip, basically - and would have happily turned round on Day 21 and done it all over again, in reverse! Most enjoyed: Being looked after and catered for so brilliantly at every turn, by such an experienced, kind, friendly and fun tour leader and support crew. The Berber people are very gracious.

Well what can I say, it was all just great. The support crew where just like having friends along, smiles and laughter all the way. Our leader, was what every trip needs, just there caring about his group, culture and crew. So patient and caring and always happy and smiling. It was all quietly under control and it was a pleasure to watch a team work together.

The trip exceeded my expectations - walking through villages as well as the mountains added variety. It was not as cold as I expected and the walking was in my ability. Having a small group worked really well.

There were some spectacular views during the trek which were amazing to witness. The three peaks were all very enjoyable to ascend, with Ouanoukrim being my favourite (a combination of great scenary and a lot of scrambling made it very fun). The crew were also very nice, making a friendly atmosphere. When two members of the trek had their birthdays, the crew sung for us and got candles for a special birthday pudding.

Morocco totally blew me away by the beauty of the dramatic scenery. Trekking was demanding as advertised but so worthwhile and rewarding. I loved every pass, every valley, every peak. The trek, route and grading were perfect. Slight adjustments made to itinerary en-route by the guide were also fantastic. Totally surpassed my expectations!

This was a real challenge for us, it was much harder than we expected. The food was fantastic and the nights in the mess tent, especially with the support crew, were great.

Great office service, like website, information provided good. The holiday fully matched expectations. Our guide was an excellent trip leader he worked and maintained great relationship with the whole group throughout the trip. Excellent ambassador for Berber/Morocco. Transport and support crew were really good. Very good interaction between support crew and group. I enjoyed the insight into life in the High Atlas, I had not expected the remote Berber lifestyle. Contrasts in technology were fascinating - teenage boys leading mules from the river bed to the village, panniers loaded with stones for building, then returning panniers empty riding the mules whilst busy texting! It was an opportunity to review European lifestyle to a lifestyle that it would be easy to view as "poor materialistically" but very rich in human aspects. Very thought provoking. Exceeded expectations, in was an insight to a changing lifestyle, an opportunity to see a culture where large family groups are still central to life. Had not expected the trek to be so thought provoking in terms of culture/lifestyle issues.

For anyone who likes a strenuous, totally involving and spectacular trek, this really is the business! As promised in the brochure, we were led across the main part of the High Atlas mountains, with 4 high peaks on in the itinerary, including Toubkal, the highest in North Africa. Our guide Hassan was superb, highly skilled and approachable, with a deep knowledge of the terrain and the culture. Our cook managed to conjure up amazing meals (fresh salads at lunchtime, couscous, vegetables @ meat in the evenings, fresh fruit etc). With a train of 8 mules carrying all the gear, we were able to get into the remoter parts of the range, so this really felt like the real deal. I came away from the holiday fit, healthy, and feeling like I had really learned about the place. A wonderful experience, totally recommended!
