Your chance to
Trek in the truly remote Anti-Atlas Mountains
At a glance
5 nights wild camping, 2 nights 3-star hotels with en suite rooms
Remote trek amongst beautiful terraced valleys and stunning desert oases
A fantastic winter trek in the dramatic and isolated Anti-Atlas mountains. Marvel at kasbahs perched above terraced valleys and wide oases as well as distant peaks fading into the desert haze. There is plenty of contact with the local villagers, while the ascent of Jebel Aklim (2531m) provides wonderful views of the snow-covered High Atlas. Walking through small villages brings close contact with the local way of life. The trek ends in Taroudant, with time to experience the souks and the ancient perimeter walls.

Accommodation details
Hotels & Camping
Camping on this trip is always in wild camps, as official campsites simply do not exist in the areas we visit. Wild camping means there is no ablutions or toilet block; however, there is sometimes the possibility to find a private spot at a nearby river for a quick wash. A basic toilet tent is erected at each camp. All camp chores are done for you from erecting and dismantling your tent to all the cooking and washing up. A table and chairs are also provided for meal times.
Morocco is opening up more and more to mainstream tourism due to increasing coverage from airlines. However, accommodation standards are more often comparable with those found in Sub-Saharan Africa rather than Europe and you should come prepared for this. All the hotels we use are of a similar standard, clean and functional although the rooms and facilities may be basic and limited and the breakfasts simple.


You may request a single room on this trip subject to availability. The cost of a single supplement is from GBP100, which applies to the week (including nights spent in a tent).

These are ‘land only’ prices which require you to book your own flights and join the rest of the group on Day 1 of the trip. For more information please see Trip Notes
