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.

Rachid was the best guide. From the moment I contacted pathfindertreks I was in the best professional hands. I explained everything I wanted to take my group on a hike where we are not plagued by sellers or with many many tourists. Rachid suggested a hike with lunch at the top of the mountain prepared by Hussein. We were completely on our own and the views were spectacular. Rachid was so much fun and knew so much about the area and shared so many facts and stories. The group of 5 girls were in the best and safest hands and everyone enjoyed every moment of the day.

We found them on line and I organised the trip for my husband and some friends of him. Since the beginning communication I took care of went very well and they answered promptly and carefully to all our questions. The 3 days Trek was amazing ! Very well organised and coordinated. The guide Ibrahim and all the staff made the climbing very special. My husband and his friends felt always very safe and got helped when needed. They would absolutely recommend the Trek with them !

My teenage and twenty something children considered or hike, lunch with Berber family and camel trek the highlight of our trip through Morocco. Rachid was a fantastic guide. He responded promptly to all my emails before we arrived. Our driver picked us up promptly and Rachid joined us in Imlil. After tea, we began our hike. Rachid shared information about the region, culture and people. We were warmly welcomed for lunch at a berber home with a wonderful view of the mountains. After hiking back down, we rode camels for approximately 1 hour. Our day was well organized and 100% enjoyable. It gave us a greater appreciation for Morocco outside the bartering atmosphere of the medina. We all highly recommend Rachid and Pathfinders.

We found the Atlas Pathfinders online and contacted Rachid through WhatsApp to arrange a customised combined tour of Merzouga and the Atlas Mountain Red Valley. It was fantastic! Rachid was very friendly and informative and helped us decide what would be best for what we wanted to see and our hiking ability. He picked us up directly from our Riad in Marrakech so we wouldn't get lost, and even let us push back the starting time last minute to allow us time to have Breakfast. He then introduced us to the driver and tour guide (both called Ibrahim so very easy to remember!) who were both very friendly and happy to let us choose good areas to pull over to take photos. We have some good selfies of all 4 of us together. Ibrahim was especially helpful and patient on the hike, and helped keep my partner motivated when she was tired and it got a bit steep! Thank you Ibrahim! We also had a cook join us on the hike, who rode ahead of us on a mule and set up lunch for us in picturesque locations on the mountain. It was really really lovely, thank you so much Lhoussain! Overall it was a really amazing experience, and I can't recommend it enough. I am looking forward to coming back again myself to try some of the other tour experiences available. Thank you Rachid!

Rachid drove with us from Marrakech to the mountains where we started our hiking. One of us can not walk very long, so they arranged a mule. It was a very nice animal. We walked through little villages and came across some snow. We had lunch at a local family, at their roof. The view was amazing. We could use their bathroom and had a look at the kitchen. The money spent on lunch benefits this family. Rachid told us much about the nature, culture, educational system, history etc. He made jokes with my kids and really enjoyed his job. I recommend this!
