4 days 3 Valleys Trek in High Atlas From Marrakesh

4 Days 3 Nights Hiking In 3 Valleys From Marrakesh

For 4 days let´s forget the worries of every day life, leave behind TV, news and traffic jams and enjoy the slow flow of time in traditional Berber villages. You will admire the simple but pretty architecture of these villages that perfectly fit to the area, feel the warmth and hospitality of locals and again and again be astonished by the stunning views that open in front of you.

This track is a great alternative to the mountaineering oriented Toubkal tracks as it focus more on the village life and rural area. Most of the time we will hike in altitude of approx. 2000 m. However avoiding Jebel Toubkal does not mean avoiding beautiful panorama and views. On the contrary, we will climb up to several passes, walk the valleys, have a rest at river banks and admire waterfalls…

You will be accompanied by a licensed and experienced guide. The tour is technically not difficult and you don´t need to have any previous mountaineering experience.

We will spend the nights in the refruges where we will meet other travellers and enjoy the well-known hospitality and delicious cookery of Berber people.

Highlights:

  • Most beautiful Berber villages
  • “Red village” Tiziane
  • Waterfall at Azib Tamsoulte
  • Great alternative/ supplement program to Jebel Toubkal tracks
  • Licenced English speaking guide
  • Accompanying staff with mules for luggage transport, cooking etc.
  • Accommodation in traditional and atmospheric refugees but with showers etc.
  • Daily walking time approx. 5-6 hours
  • Wonderful panorama views – mountains, valleys, sees, villages…
  • Flexible option to prolong the tour according your wishes
