“Trekking in style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

The best part of the High Atlas is the Berber people and villages. You don't have to trek high as the villages and village life is so interesting just walking through the valleys and stopping to talk to the locals is amazing. If you do go high it is very dry and stoney and probably best done in spring or autumn when it is not too hot and there is still some snow on the peaks.

“Up and Up”

Very interesting and changing landscape. It's quite a bit of a drive but nevertheless worthwhile. We visited some villages, ate some typical Moroccan food, spoke to locals, bought fruit on the side of the road.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

We hired a driver and toured the Atlas and then hiked. The experience was unforgettable. The people and the villages were so welcoming we could have stayed in each spot for days. Do not miss this.
