  • Explore the Southern flanks of the Atlas
  • Follow anold trade route
  • Kasbahs, ksars and Ait Ben Haddou
  • Experience the exotic and busy souks of Marrakech

This unique trekking adventure takes you across the Atlas Mountains on the ancient caravan route to discover historic fortresses, crumbling kasbahs, lunar landscapes, fertile valleys, spectacular canyons, tiny villages and the iconic ksar of magnificent Ait Ben Haddou. Nowadays the fortified town of Ait Ben Haddou is better known as the backdrop to scenes from 'Gladiator' and more recently 'The Prince of Persia'. Gavin Maxwell's novel 'Lords of the Atlas', the true story of the rise and fall of the Glaoua Empire, the most powerful tribe of the Atlas, inspires this adventure.

More than just a trek, this is a journey on foot through the history of Morocco. Back in imperial Marrakech you'll have time to explore the souks and experience the magical evening spectacle of Djeema El Fna.
