A short walking holiday in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, with time in Marrakech as well as in the mountains among its traditional Berber villages. With so many choices of airlines now, this Moroccan ‘quick fix’ is a great way of taking advantage of competitive airfares if you fancy a quick and affordable getaway.

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

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 getaway.

To plan your short break to Morocco we recommend you book early to secure the best airfares. Please contact one of our specialist travel consultants.
