With good guides/drivers, this is a spectacular trip. Learning of Berber history and cultural practices, visiting a Berber village, are real highlights, even as the mountains (on a clear day) overwhelm with the colours of the clay. La Bergerie is a French/Moroccan restaurant in the...More

We've hiked, skied, driven through, and worked in, numerous mountain areas in North and South America and Europe. The accessibility and geology on drives from Merzougha to Marrakesh has been spectacular. The pass from Ourzazate to Agdz is amazing. Going south west from Ourazazate to...More

Totally different from the crowded and noisy medina, you find peace and astonishing nature views in the atlas mountain. With the berber people and there own living style.

The best way to enjoy this activity is to go with low expectations. The most you will get out of this is numerous vistas of Berber villages built on sloping hills and views of mountains and undulating terrain. There is no cultural kick or informative...More

The high atlas mountains are just wonderful. It was the part of my trip. If you visit an old berber village you can give the inhabitants a little money and they invite you for lunch and show you the area. Just fantastic!!

I took a 4 day trip on the valleys and climbed Mt Toubkal with Mohamed Aztat's trecking agency which was amazing. I also traveled more in Marocco but this was the best bit of the trip.

This was the best part of our trip to Morocco. I would recommend in the very least an excursion to the Ourika Valley. Remember to bring the correct footwear as we had trainers but saw so many people struggling in flip flops and sandals. Breathtaking...More

We had a day trip up to the mountains and can honestly say it was the highlight of our trip to Morocco. The villages we passed through were an eye-opener, lots of poverty and very basic stone huts. We saw groups of ladies doing their...More

I don't know about the Atlas Mountains, but in Morocco, you find cats everywhere, streets, cafes, restaurants, etc. I too have a cat phobia and it's very difficult and hard for me and my friends to go eat out, but I still do... More

I suggest you book an organized tour, or better yet hire a tour guide. Most taxis will rip you off. I also usually take horse carriages instead of taxis and I find them to be the best means of transportation.
