Owner description: 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.

I would definitely recommend Pathfinders Treks for a trek in the High Atlas mountains. We did the two day 'Red Valley trek', which was very beautiful! Our guide Rachid is very friendly and helpful. He speaks english fluently, which makes it very easy to communicate. The mountains are his home and he knows them very well. I will come back for another trek with Rachid.

Had the best 3 days doing the 3 valleys trek, our guide (Hassan) and our cook (Mohammed) could not have been any better. They were so fun, so knowledgable and easily the best around - I can't recommend these guys enough. Rachid was our contact while organising the trip and he cold not have been more helpful. Thanks again to all of you, we had a brilliant few days and will definitely be coming back.

Thank always_cheers

I came to Morocco to do a trek to the top of North Africa. Everything about the experience was great. Rachid was very responsive over email prior to my trip, no issues there at all.

When I arrived in Imlil via a pre-arranged taxi, Rachid was there to meet me as well as my guide, Abraham. We got mint tea before Abraham and I headed off. Abraham took good care of me during my trek with him. He was aware of my hiking capabilities (experienced) and tailored the speed, breaks, etc. appropriately.

The food on the trip was amazing, all cooked by local Berber cooks in the mountain villages.

We got down the mountain a little early on the second day after summitting Jbel Toubkal, so Abraham walked me through some of the 4-5 different villages around Imlil, a real treat to walk through the neighbourhoods and to see what the every day life looks like in and around Imlil.

Overall, a fantastic experience!

Thanks Rachid and Abraham.

Great company. Rachid is very passionate about his customers and a pleasant and friendly guide. We had a very good time in the Zagora desert. The camp was safe, clean and well organised. Rachid is also easy going and interesting, which makes the whole group at ease.

We booked through Rashid at very short notice. He was amazing, 100% professional, giving us various options with helpful advice, sorting out transfers and accom. Nothing was too much trouble; meeting us in Imlil for a briefing on the two day trek. Our guide Hassan was outstanding, friendly & amusing, leading us up to our refuge on the first night and guiding us safely (encouraging us as well) during the early morning darkness over testing terrain to the summit. The descent too required his expertise and in particular he supported my partner Cathy over some tricky stages. Altogether, having Hassan lead us, made a very challenging trek enjoyable and memorable. The trek catering by the two muleteers was also excellent. Thanks to all for an unforgettable trip.
