We asked a taxidriver from Marrakech to drive us up there and stopped off at some places on the way. The mountains are amazing, you go up this little track (which you do need some steady shoes for) and end up at a waterfall. Which looks good but not as amazing as expected ;). The views though were breathtaking. You... More

Went upto the Atlas Mountains 19th January on a 4x4 trip was absolutely amazing our guide was very knowledgeable as he was born in the mountains himself! Got to visit a real Berber house in the mountains and drink mint tea which was delish! Then carried on up the mountains and had lunch at the foot of the highest mountain... More

We took a mini trek up to the seti falls, it is classed as 1 out of 5 in terms of difficulty, but for those who do not trek often, and perhaps aren't wearing the right shoes, it can be quite difficult. There were families, oaps, young children, all ages doing the trek, and the guides are extremely experienced and... More

The mountain trail is very challenging and is only for fit people. There is no safety at all besides the guides. Afterall the trip is absolut fantastic and a great experience. Word of advice; be aware of the price the guides tell you. The one-hour-trip should cost 150 dirham!

The high Atlas Mountain Range in Morocco is spectacular. We were on a tour and not doing the driving. Because of the severe slopes of the mountains combined with the local inhabitants making a living farming the slopes it made this adventure a high light of the drive to Marrakech.

Big mistake NOT to go to the high Atlas Mountains. Spend only two days in Marrakech and then stay as long as you can in the mountains. We did two treks with Toubkal treks run by Jamal and the wonderful Hassan was our guide both days. The Limlil trek was amazing. Stay at least one night in the Limlil lodge... More

we transited through these mountains on a 3 day trip to the Sahara desert. The mountains are the best I've ever seen, simply gorgeous, with snow capped tops and as rugged as you can imagine. The winding road through takes a strong stomach! Wish I had chance to have a trek through!

We were lucky to be transiting from Ait Ben Haddou, on the Zagora side of the mountains and headed for Marrakech. The evening before was very windy and rainy, so it was no surprise to set of the following morning and see snow on the peaks, we transited the pass at about 2600 meters and the road was gritted and...

While stopping in Marrakech through Thomson holidays we decided to take a 4x4 tour of the Atlas Mountains. The day long trip travelled through several picturesque valley's before stopping for lunch in Imlil. The day included stops in a traditional Berber village where we took mint tea with a local family, a pottery factory, and an Argan (Moroccan) oil collective.... More
