Private Marrakech Day Trips
Trekking in the Atlas Mountains
Enjoy a Trekking in Morocco just south of Marrakesh in the Atlas Mountains. Our treks here take place in the Toubkal National Park home to North Africa’s tallest peak, Jbel Toubkal, which sits majestically at 4,167 meters above sea level. Opportunities for trekking in Morocco are available all year.

Trekking in Ait Bougmez
Truly getting you off the beaten path on your Morocco trekking adventure is one of our main goals. North from Marrakesh is Ait Bougmez where hiking takes you through remote villages and a lesser-explored area of the country. These treks are available from May through October.
The Moroccan Atlas Mountains in Morocco make a world-class trekking destination for hardy adventurers. The region located in the Toubkal National Park is home to diversity on all levels; from visiting removed Berber (Amazigh) villages to trekking over snow-topped peaks of 4,000 meters (nearly 14,000 feet). The region is one of exceptional attractiveness – especially for those who are able to venture into its inner sanctums. While trekking in Morocco is not well known worldwide, it’s becoming something of a novelty for Europeans and their American and Canadian counterparts who attempt to summit North Africa’s highest (and most renowned) peak, which is possible to do in two days (although we do not offer this sort of package).
Like switchblade scars made at random, the Moroccan Atlas ranges cut through the country in various fashions – from the Anti-Atlas (southwest of Marrakesh), to the High Atlas (Toubkal National Park, south of Marrakesh), to the Central High Atlas (near Beni Mellal) all the way to the north of the country to the lush Rif Mountains (located nearer to Chefchaouen). Trekking any of these regions can be done without a guide, but is much more worthwhile, safe, and culturally in-depth with a local, professionally certified guide. Our head guide named Brahim & Mohamed is a distinguished expert on treks here and you can read about him on our team page. In Morocco, a lot is to be said for hiking with support. As mentioned above, having a professionally certified guide truly enlightens the experience and means you will be in good hands throughout your walk – whether it is for one, two, or multi-days.
If you haven’t arranged your trek before your arrival (which is highly recommended to do since it means you’ll be able to compare quality options and means your trek will be properly prepared), you can do so at the ‘gate of the Atlas’ in a roadside installment known as Imlil (not really a ‘classic’ village by any standard as it arose from tourists coming here to arrange their journey). When using a local guide, be sure he has proper credentials and is properly trained for the job. Going with false guides can be dangerous as they are not trained and have not undergone the somewhat grueling training becoming an official mountain guide requires. Not only does a certified hiking guide mean better safety, it also means that you’ll be in the hands of someone who knows how to ensure you have a good time, understands the network of trails and paths, can handle basic emergencies in terms of health and weather, and can communicate (and interpret) with locals throughout. Plus, having a local by your side really adds to the overall enjoyment of your trip.
