Atlas

Concept

From Marrakech, you first cross the imposing Tichka Pass to the south, where you will pass through clay villages that seem to have been built in the mountain for centuries. You will see kasbahs where time seems to stand still, you will visit rural markets that open up Moroccan country life, you will hike on tracks and paths where you will only meet nomads and shepherds who watch their cattle on the summer pastures. You will get to know the sparse life in the Atlas Mountains, but also the friendly people through whose villages you pass. You will see a unique high mountain flora, which is in full bloom and which still unfolds its splendour even at 3000 m altitude. You will meet herds of camels grazing on alpine pastures over 2000 m above sea level. You stay overnight partly in the middle of the picturesque villages. When you come back north to Marrakech, you have seen high mountains, narrow gorges, green oases, rock formations, clay castles and many impressions that will make this trip unforgettable for you.

Details

DURATION:8 days

You travel on pistes and well-built mountain roads, you hike in dry riverbeds or on well-trodden mule tracks. Depending on your mood, you can hike or cover the entire tour in a comfortable four-wheel drive vehicle. If necessary, walk with knowledgeable local guides, or follow the pistes that the vehicle also drives. The picnics on the way take place at selected places and leave no culinary desires open. Breakfast and dinner are served in the respective hotel. You can swim in local waters or at least cool your feet in them. You will visit Kasbahs and walk through an oasis, where you will be familiarized with everything that has to do with oasis management. You will be accompanied by a German-speaking tour guide and local guides.
