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

Mount Toubkal in the High Atlas Mountains is a stunning place to trek. The views are amazing whichever direction you look in. If you aren't experienced in mountain trekking you will certainly need a guide for this area! If it wasn't for the amazing support and guidance of Ibrahim and his team from Marrakechdaytrips my friends and I would not... More

The Berber villages and people are charming. The Arabs in the larger towns are accommodating and friendly.

Visiting the mountains was my most enjoyable memory during my stay in Marrakech! It's very relaxing and is much cooler compared to the heat in Marrakech. I highly recommend spending a day here with friends and family. If you do visit, i hope you enjoy your time there!

My friend and I went on a girly four day break to Morocco in July and escaped the heat of the city to the Atlas Mountains which was around 10 degrees cooler and a lot fresher. We found a local guide called Haj through the hotel we stayed at which was called the Diwane Hotel (opposite the Renaissance) and manged... More

We did this trip through MarrakechDayTrips,com and have to say it was the most memorable part of our holiday. The trip to the mountain itself was AMAZING and the hike to Mt. Toubkal was the highlight of our stay in Morocco- and we did it with the most fantastic guides- RACHID and MOHAMED ! We hiked in the middle of... More

This place was absolutely stunning! I honestly can't get into words how beautiful this whole area is. We organised a private car with our riad manager to take us to the mountains. I really recommend you do this as it's an isolated place and I'm not sure whether you could get there by coach or public transport. We stopped for... More
