Took a trip to the Atlas Mountains in the 4x4 experience. Incredible awe inspiring breathtaking, terrifying, humbling experience all rolled into one. Our guide yusuf was fantastic and funny as was our Lewis Hamilton type driver Mohammed. The culture and lives of the Berber people living in the mountains is enriching and again very humbling. We had mint tea and... More

Travelling to the High Atlas Mountains involves driving through small towns amidst people, mules, souks and daily activity. However, when we had the opportunity to do some like trekking with Omar, our guide, it was a very worthwhile experience, Omar is the regional coordinator for Journey Beyond Travel, which is the company that arranged our 10 day tour of Morocco....

We had a three day trek in the Atlas Mountains. Booked and arranged with Tourdust. There were 4 berbers (guide, muleteer, chefs) who looked after us so well. The terrain was hard going at times and our two boys (ages 9 and 7) managed the hills and when they were tired they rode on the mules which they loved. The... More

My Wife and I passed through the Atlas Mountains on our way to Zagora and out to the desert! The views were impressive to say the least and the switch back turns on the roads can be a little nerve wracking. (we were glad to have a professional driver for that leg of our trip)

Managed this in flip flops so it is very much achievable and definitely a must-do. The kids were reluctant to begin with but 10 mins in they were hooked and almost leading the way. The waterfall half way up the mountain was the icing on the cake...absolutely amazing.

We went on a two-day trip to Zagora riding in a mini-bus through Atlas Mountains. Looong trip from Marrakesh, 7-8 hours in a mini-bus each way. Beautiful mountains though. Unique, different. Worth the long ride.

We had 2 day tours to both Imlil on one day which included the Argon Oil Women's Co-op. We were picked up from our Riad and went to an old village and then through Imlil via the Argon oil co-op up to the head of the valley to take pictures. We then went to Richard Bransons Khasbah Tamadot for lunch.... More

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity we were taken in a 4 X 4 land rover up in the mountains with a great guide called Ahmed. We took regular breaks to get such stunning photos of the views. We got to go into a house and have tea with a family. The children do come up to you... More
