Berber Villages Trekking


Trekking in Morocco is the best way to spend 5 days exploring the Berber villages of the Atlas Mountains on foot. A hike amidst cool vegetation of juniper and pine trees is a perfect way to rejuvenate your mind and body. Lets Go Trekking in Morocco across deep gorges, gushing river streams and groves of cherry and walnut trees, as your guide takes you on a great walk up and down the beautiful hills.
The valleys are home to tiny hamlets and villages of the ethnic Berbers, a herding and farming community. Visit their homes and interact with them to know more about their traditions and customs. See their terraced fields of corn and barley and get a glimpse of their day to day living.
All this happens amid nature, with a sense of unbridled joy. It’s an experience impossible to replicate elsewhere
