What’s the weather like?

What is the hike like? How fit do I need to be?

This trek requires a fairly good level of fitness. You must be capable of hiking all day up paths of moderate difficulty.

However, the views along the way make the journey more than worthwhile!

Moroccan food has a unique blend of sweet and savory flavours. Local specialties include tajines (a stew cooked in an earthenware pot), couscous, and pastilles (flaky pastries stuffed with meat and dusted with cinnamon and sugar).

That will depend on season, itinerary and what the clients would like. We use tents, local houses and mountain refuges usually.

The Tour of Toubkal

The pedestrian raid (with bat mules) that we propose is a loop around the Massif.

From village to village, to the peaceful rhythm of the Berbers who accompany us, we set out to discover another world.

A walk full of colors and meetings at the foot of the Toubkal, the highest mass of the Moroccan Atlas.

– The Toubkal

(Period: from May to October – Duration: 8 days – Level: supported).

We will explore, in the best conditions of freshness, thanks to the altitude, the remotest regions of its high sunken valleys where tiny villages nestle in which life seems not to have changed for centuries. During all this time, we will not go down below 1500 m and pass under relatively easy conditions, three passes at more than 3000 m, altitude where it is not uncommon to meet shepherds. The path through the days, we will gently bring back to the foot of the Toubkal, of which we will make the ascent by an original way

– The great crossing of the both  Atlas

(Period: from May to October – Duration: 22 days – Level: medium)

A world apart from ages and time, the High Atlas remains the last universe of high mo, ntagne to discover in the Maghreb.

Slowly, for almost 3 weeks, this itinerary is a dive into this maze of valleys, peaks and mountains with strange and colorful reliefs. Sometimes desert of pink rocks, sometimes a verdant valley where the wheat waves to the rhythm of a fresh breeze, the High Atlas is of an extraordinary diversity. The perched villages, or hidden at the foot of a wadi, are tinged with the color of the surrounding land, and the impetuous torrents flow in the wild gorges.

Sources of clear water feed large plateaus where Berber shepherds nomadise during the summer.

And all around, the mountain is adorned with a symphony of colors and lights, creating an atmosphere where the stranger loses his bearings to better find himself …

Torn and gripping space reveals itself at every turn and every step during this long wandering. Never could the eye have imagined so much finesse and diversity in the same place.

From the nakedness of Djebel Anoghmer to the valley of the thousand kasbahs that close it, this journey was seen as a surprising discovery.
