Adventure Trek: explore the Berber communities and their environment.

A perfect introduction to a trekking experience in Morocco surrounded by traditional Berber culture.

 

During this adventure trek, we’ll spend 4 days trekking in the high peaks of the Atlas Mountains. A hike amidst cool vegetation of juniper and pine trees is a perfect way to rejuvenate your mind and body. Go trekking across deep gorges, gushing river streams and groves of cherry and walnut trees, as your guide takes you on a great hike up and down the beautiful hills.
The valleys are home to tiny hamlets and villages of the ethnic Berbers, a herding and farming community. We will visit their homes and interact with and get to know more about their traditions and customs. We can see how they work the land with terraced fields of corn and barley and get a glimpse of their day to day living.
