About Pathfinders Treks
Pathfinders treks organise outdoor adventure and cultural activities. We organize trekking trips within Morocco's High Atlas Mountains emphasizing a community-friendly approach. Our trekking options include Mount Toubkal ascent, walking the High Atlas valleys, and treks through Berber villages revealing the breathtaking quiet beauty of adjacent valleys. Our activities rely on the knowledge, strong limbs and hospitality of the Berber people, who work as local guides, muleteers and accommodation providers. We believe they are the people who can tell the most about their culture, traditions and way of life to make the whole trekking experience unique and authentic. As organizers of this community-friendly trekking, we create job opportunities for the locals as well as raise money for community projects.

Overview
Discover the diversity of the landscapes surrounding Marrakech on this day trip taking in valleys, hidden villages, lakes and mountains.
We pick you up in Marrakech and drive out to the lake at Lalla Takerkoust for an hour and half horse riding near the rocky Agafay Desert. Views from here are outstanding with the backdrop of the High Atlas mountains. Our trip takes us up onto the Kik Plateau, sometimes called the breadbasket of the area; it is an elevated plateau where the fields are still ploughed by man and donkeys, and where each family has a plot of land to grow wheat. In spring it is a magical place full of wild flowers and red poppies. lunch in traditional Berber house. In the afternoon, we discover two of the valleys in this part of the High Atlas as we drive through hidden villages where life goes on in time honoured fashion. We pass through the forested trails of Sidi Faress and descend to the fertile Ourika Valley before returning you to Marrakech.

We did a 6-day trek through the High Atlas, during Ramadan, passing through multiple Berber villages and Rachid's village to end our trek at Imlil where we had an extra day and night to close off our time in the High Atlas. Everything was super well organised by Rachid and Pathfinders, and it was very budget-friendly. It is one of the most unique experience I have had in my life. Views, culture, active hike, food. It had it all. I'm immensely grateful to Rachid, Omar (guide), Mustafa (cook) and Peko (mule), who each made our trip incredibly pleasant and rich in reflections and beautiful cultural moments.

Awesome experience! We were group of 3. Made arrangements from India through emails. As paying from India was a problem they agreed to take money in Morocco. Highly professional, kind and caring staff. The trek was very well organized by Rachid. Yusuf the guide is a very nice person. As it was my first trek he was very patient and caring. He gave me many valuable lessons. Hussain the cook made the best Moroccan food I had in all of Morocco. Picnics in the walnut orchards and under the Juniper tree are the moments one live for…..:))

We(group of 3 ,2M+1F) did a 3 day High Atlas Mountains Berber villages hike with Pathfinders in early June 2022. Firstly, coordinating on the internet with Rachid of Pathfinders was very efficient and productive to make an informed decision on the trek. They helped us out with advance payment (our request) as money transfers from India are cumbersome for travel logistics. The trek itself was well organised incl pick up and drop-off, meals, guide and infrastructure. Hussain was an awesome cook and Yousuf a wonderful and helpful guide. Thanks to all of them we have beautiful memories of our time in the mountains. Dalip, India

Hello everybody, Special shoutout to Youssef (Guide) who brought me to the top of Toubkal and Husseyin(Cook) who cooked the Most delicious meals on our Marroco Trip. If you ever Want to Go with a good tour definitely go with Pathfinderstreks. They Were very caring from the beginning and spoiled us the entire time. The Price was slightly more expensive than other tours but believe me it is so worth it!! There are so Many Tours out there and so many were disappointed when they Saw our variety of food and included snacks. :D Thank you so much! Will come back in the future!! Many thanks- Rachel and Manuel from Germany
