Our Morocco trekking trip in the Atlas Mountains begins! First we drive to the mountain village Aroumd, about 1.5 hours away, in the middle of the rugged mountain world of the Atlas mountains, which is the starting point for our expedition. Here, at an altitude of 1900 metres, we first familiarise ourselves with the mountain air and the surroundings and meet our team, consisting of cook and mule caravan. After our luggage and equipment for the adventure has been packed and stowed, our trek begins towards Tacheddirt. Soon we cross the mountain pass Tizi n’Tamatert (2279 meters) with a wonderful view of the neighbouring valley. Via the mountain village of Ouaneskra we continue up to Tacheddirt (3000 meters).

After a tasty lunch we continue for about 1 hour in the direction of the valley to our camp for the night, near Azib n’Likemt (2250 meters) on a clear mountain river. Here you often meet nomadic shepherds and their herds (goats, sheep). There is enough time for tea and intercultural exchange before dinner and a relaxing night.

A slow ascent to the mountain pass Tizi n’ Ouanoums (3670 meters) is a good start into the day. The beautiful view to the surrounding 4000m peaks gives you an idea that it can’t be far to stand on the roof of North Africa. After a short break and a refreshing lunch, the descent to the Toubkal refuge at 3200 meters begins – our starting point for tomorrow’s summit ascent.

Our accommodations

Local accommodation with charm

OUR HOSTS:

True to our values and with a view to fair tourism, our accommodations are either local guesthouses or small family-run hotels where hospitality is still a priority. In spite of the local accommodations of our trips, we naturally pay attention to comfort when making our choices.

THE FURNISHING OF THE ACCOMMODATIONS:

Those who are used to a European 3-Star-Standard will get along well with our accommodations. There are predominantly no star catagories with us, which results mostly already alone from the remoteness of the accommodations and the kind of the “management”, however we pay attention very much to the fact that you feel well with us. There is a bed, shower, heating and usually also air conditioning and a pool. Not to forget the delicious meals, which are mostly prepared from traditional dishes with ingredients from the neighborhood or your own garden. You are always welcome to stay with us.

MOUNTAIN REFUGES AND SHELTERS:

The mountain refuges and shelters we use correspond to what can be expected from such a “refuge” and resemble the mountain refuges in Europe. The mountain refuges are more reminiscent of mountain hostels. They offer a good opportunity to have a good meal in a barren and remote region after a strenuous hiking day, to review the day, to enjoy the view and to sleep. But the atmosphere is all the more familiar and welcoming as most hotels and inns… not to mention the majestic scenery that surrounds you. The heating is mostly classical with wood stoves. The rooms are mostly multi-bed rooms. Sanitary facilities and washing facilities are also available.

CAMPING TENTS:

On some of our trekking trips it is necessary to spend a night in tents. Of course we provide the appropriate tents and the equipment does not have to be carried. The tents meet all our adventure requirements and are functional trekking tents. For larger groups (6-8 persons) spacious expedition tents can also be used. We also offer sleeping bags free of charge. If you like, you can also bring your own tent. However, we advise you to bring your own sleeping bag. For longer trekking tours we use mule caravans to transport the equipment.
