Adventure Trek: a great introductory trek in the High Atlas Mountains.
Visit the beautiful Setti Fatma waterfall and spend some time trekking in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco.
The Moroccan countryside is beautiful to look at and still feels quite wild. The High Atlas is populated with juniper trees and walnnut trees and features stunning gorges and luscious forests. It is perfect trekking country.
All 3 valleys are home to tiny hamlets and villages of the famous Moroccan herding and farming community, the Berbers. We will visit their homes and spend some time with them to get to know a little more about their culture and farming techniques. The Berbers use beautiful terraced fields to grow corn and barley.
