We had a couple of hours hiking with a local guide, a very friendly person, that led us up the mountains until the highest waterfalls one could reach with such a short walk. The air, the view, the geology of the place, the sight of the majestic mountains, all so highly recommended!

We did a typical tourist loop, arriving in Casablanca, taking a train to Fez where we stayed in the luxurious Palais Faraj, and then began a 3 day excursion into the desert, then through the High Atlas to finally end up in Marrakech. Seeing the countryside, the tiny (often very poor) towns, and the breathtaking views should not be missed... More

I went on a private tour through the mountains for a day. We left from my hotel in Marrakesh and driving up and around with a stop for lunch took from 9 am - 3 pm. These mountains are as high as the Wasatch Mountains around Salt Lake City Utah - 3000 + meters (12,000 feet). We drove up around... More

Amazing views. Make sure you visit the waterfall but wear proper trainers or walking boots as this requires some skilful rock climbing! Our guide Hussain was great and really helped me as I wasn't the most confident!

Truly a beautiful part of Morocco we saw the mountains and enjoyed the trip getting there. We went by bus, which we thought was the best way of seeing all of Morocco. The hotels were organised for us and the places to stop and eat. Met some interesting people and had a really good time.

We enjoyed out time in the Atlas Mountains, it was a different pace of life, gorgeous views and sunsets, interesting people and a view into Berber life.

We arranged this excursion with our hotel and unfortunately we didn't know it was a trek we thought it was more of stopping at pit stops and taking pictures (yes this sounds silly but majority of the small group we were with thought so too :P) My friends did say afterwards if they were mentally and physically prepared they would...

Get your riad owners to organise you a trip to the atlas mountains - much cheaper and easier to arrange. Stunning views and a good exercise up the mountain. Visited argan oil shop on the way up and had a camel ride as well as going into a berber house for mint tea. Very enjoyable day.

Abdul Sninat from Marrakech Magic Tours (marrakechmagictours@gmail.com) provide us with a wonderful day spent in The High Atlas and a traditional moroccan tea and lunch in a berebere village house. He was knowledgable and kind enough to stop as many times as we wanted to to take photos and just admire the wonderful scenery. I recommend him to anyone that... More

Went to the waterfall in the Atlas Mountain and was rather nice. Please be aware, there is 2 differently waterfalls, this one was 2,5hrs from Marrakech, which is the nicest one (the other one is closer and smaller, you have to do a lot of walking and is not as nice). Is a beautiful scenery. There some "boats" that you... More
