Full description
Spend 2 days exploring the high peaks of the Atlas Mountains on foot. Hike amidst the cool vegetation in the region; fields of juniper and pine trees are a perfect place to rejuvenate your mind and body. Cross deep gorges, gushing river streams and groves of cherry and walnut trees, as your guide takes you among the region's 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 the locals to get 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 lifestyle as you meander through the villages.
