Our walks and treks take place in remote, off-the-beaten-track areas and include stays in traditional Berber villages inhabited by friendly local people who live a life that has changed little over hundreds of years.
What We Include On Our Treks
On our High Atlas walks and treks you will be accompanied by an enthusiastic and experienced local team consisting of muleteers, cook and certified mountain guide. Luggage, camp and cooking equipment are transported between locations by sturdy mules leaving you free to walk and enjoy breathtaking panoramas unburdened.
At night – depending on your chosen route – you may stay in a combination of traditional Berber lodges, mountain refuges or gites, or you may camp out in the Atlas wilderness faraway from civilisation. When camping we include all cooking equipment and utensils, spacious 3-person tents (to sleep just 2), foam mattresses (or camp beds), toilet and washing facilities.
Sleeping bags can be hired locally from Dar Tassa or you can bring your own. All meals are included from when you arrive in the mountains – tasty Moroccan breakfasts, picnic lunches and dinners will be prepared by a Berber chef.
Tailor-Made Toubkal Treks
Easily accessible from Marrakech, Toubkal National Park has at its centre the highest mountain in North Africa. This iconic peak attracts trekkers from around the world attempting to summit Jebel Toubkal.
We can arrange a Toubkal trek which is tailored to your requirements. Whether it be a 2, 3, 4 or 5 day trek, or perhaps a ‘Grand Trek of the Atlas’, let us know – we’ll be delighted to advise and arrange your trek.
Private Group Departures
If you are considering arranging a High Atlas trek or walking holiday for a group of friends, family or work mates we offer special group discounts on treks starting from our base at Dar Tassa.
We can ‘top and tail’ your stay at Dar Tassa (and your trek) with a stay in Marrakech, perhaps renting an authentic riad (such as Riad Africa) exclusively for your group.
