Run by: Ramblers Walking Holidays

Reference number: 20420

From: £899.00

This is the perfect introduction not only to the High Atlas Mountains, but Morocco. The way Ramblers Walking Holidays see it, if youre going to come to Morocco for the walking, you might as well start with the best. On this tour you will gain and insight into the eclectic and buzzing city of Marrakech along with some stunning walking through the High Atlas Mountains area. For three nights youll be based in the picturesque and remote village of Tighza, where your walks will begin and end. The trip pace is relaxed, allowing you to enjoy the incredible views when your boots are pounding the trail, learn about the Berber way of life, and chance to scratch below the surface of Marrakech. For a very Moroccan experience, youll visit a hammam in Tighza. There are five days of walking, four of these being in the High Atlas Mountains, at a maximum altitude of 2900m and an average altitude of 1900m. We have chosen each walk, so you see a different side of the areas surrounding Tighza. Each trail follows a well-worn path however, you will find yourself ascending and descending along largely undeveloped trails with rocky ground with loose scree. Your Riad in the mountains is simple and basic but views and the friendly welcoming will more than make up for it. This is after all the real Morocco. Finish your tour back in Marrakech with a half day guided tour of the city including the medina, Bahia Palace, dye pits and more. Marrakech is a melting pot of interesting people, snake charmers, fresh juice and colourful spices, plus if youre after a carpet then youve come to the right place too. There is nothing that reflects the concept of travel more than an evening visit to Djemaa-el Fna, a drink and view to watch it all unfold.
