I was there in November when it was cold and rainy but still amazing and fresh. I had a long hiking up in the rocky hills which was dangerous but the tour guide looked after me. Many tour agencies offer daily trip there from Marrakesh.

Morocco caravan Tours provided a most excellent guide in Ahmed who we were lucky to have in our 4x4 during the day. He was very knowledgeable & passionate about his Berber heritage.

A very interesting trip up the famous Atlas mountains. Refreshments are available every step of the way up from vendors taking advantage of the cool water flowing down the slopes to cool drinks.

We rode to the highest point on our way from Fez to Marakesh. This is a beautiful ride. We stopped at various points on the way up and took great pictures. It's hard to believe you are in the desert. Make sure you stop at the area called the 'Switzerland of Morocco' in the mountains. There is a great restaurant... More

Like going back in time. Beautiful panoramic views. Delightful people. Truly, a breath of fresh mountain air up high in the snow-capped atlas ranges. A nice reprieve from the bustle of city medinas.

Honestly, I didn't expect such a green place in Morocco. We had the really great taste of nature with waterfalls and valleys. I double recommend taking any tour to the Atlas Mountains.

WE went up into the High Atlas. we were at about 8000 ft. The road are narrow and winding. the views are spectacular. Many of the mountains are red in color although some were gray. We passed many Berber villages.

This is a very breathtaking, natural and rural place - a must visit if you go to Morroco and a lovely change to the hustle and bustle of Marakesh. As you walk up the mountain and see the fresh water streams and clouds , air and views are wonderful!!! Few tips: 1. Take packed lunch for picnic 2. Consider going... More
