For Atlas Trekking you need to prepare as you would for walking in any mountain region; it can be warm and sunny during the day but the weather in the mountains can quickly change from sunshine to snow and cold winds (autumn through late spring). Please do not leave any rubbish behind you; carry out what you carry in.
Atlas Treks are tailored to match the season and your level of fitness. You have the choice of basing yourself in Berber Guesthouses, from where you can take daily walks, or you can Atlas Mule Trek for 2+ days. On mule treks you usually have the choice of staying in Berber Guesthouse/with families or wild camping in 2-person tents. In addition to regular packing, here is a Check List for Atlas Trekking:
Pick up from Marrakech Airport and transfer to the riad where you will spend the night.
Marrakech is a city to dazzle the senses, today there will be a full day sightseeing tour to introduce you to its delights. Highlights include the marvelous Jemaa El Fna Square – once a site of public execution, now full of storytellers and snake charmers; the Saadian Tombs, Bahia Palace, Ben Youssef Medersa and the beautiful Majorelle Gardens.
Free morning to explore Marrakech before heading up into the snow-capped mountains that watch over the city. You will spend the next three nights in Imlil in the shadow of North Africa’s highest mountain (Jebel Toubkal at 4167m), with spectacular views.
The rugged terrain has a beauty all of its own and walking is an ideal way to enjoy and appreciate this. Today you will have your own mountain guide who will introduce you to the region and arrange a walk according to your abilities through the Berber villages and mountains.
: Free day to enjoy the fresh mountain air and fantastic scenery.
After breakfast you will leave Imlil and drive to Essaouira. Fronted by dramatic sea bastions and surrounded by walled fortifications, the Atlantic breezes keep this harbour town cool even in the height of the summer. After checking into your riad, the rest of the day is at leisure.
Today you have free time to spend the day walking the ramparts and exploring the back alleys of the enclosed Medina. Stroll along the sandy beach and watch the fisherman bring in their haul.
After breakfast transfer back to Marrakesh, to spend some time leisurely sightseeing on your own and perhaps shopping in the colourful souks. Night in a riad.
