This Holiday in a nutshell
  • three-centre, city and guided walk
  • explore the Atlas Mountains valleys and passes with a guide
  • stay in an authentic Berber house
  • half-day tour in Marrakesh included

The very name Marrakesh conjurs up images of a frenetic, colourful, noisy and delightfully aromatic city - and you will not be disappointed from the moment you first set foot in the maelstrom that is the truly remarkable Djemaa el Fna. This bustling square epitomises all that is exotic, foreign and exciting about Morocco, with acrobats, snake charmers, story tellers and street vendors all adding their individual and unique contribution to the overall experience. You will find the people friendly and respectful, busy and noisy, leaving you spellbound by the hectic whirl around you in one of the world's great cities.

As the village wakes up, the shadows unfurl like a blanket, breathing warmth into the land. Eager to greet the morning sun, we set off along the path at a pace, the mountain slopes becoming saturated with ruddy hues whilst the fertile valley floor glistens with contrasting shades of green.
Mr Knipe, Lincolnshire

The foothills and valleys of the High Atlas Mountains are surprisingly lush and green, and provide endless opportunities for walking beneath the shadow of mighty peaks. After the hustle and bustle of the city, walking along wide open ridges with gentle breezes blowing up from the valleys below comes as a refreshing change. With three days to explore the lower valleys and three days on the dramatic higher slopes, this holiday offers a real insight into North Africa's most iconic mountain range.

You are accompanied by English-speaking local guides for much of your holiday, ensuring your time in Morocco becomes an unforgettable holiday of a lifetime.
