Marrakech and Atlas Short Break - private guided walking holiday in Morocco

  • Experience exotic Marrakech
  • Enjoy sublime trekking in the High Atlas Mountains
  • Meet the Berbers
  • Stay in a traditional riad in Marrakech

With so many affordable low cost airline flights to Marrakech from many UK regional airports, our Moroccan 'quick fix' is a great way of taking advantage of this if you just fancy a quick and inexpensive getaway.

After a night in a traditional riad in the heart of old Marrakech, we take you into the majestic High Atlas Mountains. Here you'll enjoy two superlative days of trekking over moderate passes, through scenic valleys and atmospheric Berber villages, before returning to Marrakech for a final night in this Imperial Ochre City. Soak up the atmosphere of the souks and square amid belly dancers, acrobats and snake charmers.

Great value for money, sublime walking, a better climate than the UK, and a touch of the exotic, Morocco is the ideal destination for a short get-away.
