Dunes & Desert organizes hikes through unique and timeless landscapes to contemplate and discover the heart of the High Atlas.
Travel through the ages, one step at a time, along the transhumance trails the local Amazigh have trodden since time immemorial from winter to summer pastures. Made to measure hikes in natural settings will provide you an experience without equal, and its mountaineers who swear it so! We have selected for you outdoor activities in Amazigh lands such as the wonderful valley of Ait Oucheg and their famous terraced crops and small villages perched on the hills, where some villages started accepting any strangers into their walls only a few generations ago. This is by far one of our most beautiful adventures, in the heart of grandiose and lush landscapes. To elevate your perspective higher still, you can also climb Jbel Toubkal, the highest point of the High Atlas, or Mount M'Goun, first and third summit in Morocco and North Africa, both favourite destinations of mountaineers and hikers. Although the region is very sunny, the altitude makes the temperature pleasant even in summer.
We have selected for you the best route to discover High Atlas Amazigh Morocco and its breathtaking panoramas.
