Atlas Mountains Guide
We organize trekking trips within Morocco’s High Atlas Mountains emphasizing a community-friendly approach. Our trekking options include Mount Toubkal ascent, walking the High Atlas & Berber Villages valleys, and treks through Berber villages revealing the breathtaking quiet beauty of adjacent valleys. Our activities rely on the knowledge, strong limbs and hospitality of the Berber people, who work as local guides, muleteers and accommodation providers. We believe they are the people who can tell the most about their culture, traditions and way of life to make the whole trekking experience unique and authentic. As organizers of this community-friendly trekking, we create job opportunities for the locals as well as raise money for community projects.
