This massive mountain range stretches all the way to Tunisia from Morocco and separates the coasts from the Sahara Desert. This special positioning of the mountains makes them home to many unique and endangered plants and animals.

The Moroccan Atlas Mountains have been inhabited by Amazigh villagers for centuries. Many treks through these mountains follow traditional shepherd’s routes between villages. On these paths, you will encounter historic villages and various landscapes that are distinctive of the region. It is the perfect mix of culture and hiking for trekkers looking for an extraordinary experience.

There are many circuits, most requiring a local guide. For example, the 7-day Toukbal circuit will guide you through subtle paths, ancient villages and around the highest peak of the mountain range. Many other circuits to this Moroccan trekking treasure offer different landscapes and experiences.

Morocco is a fantastic destination for trekking, with its diverse landscapes and stunning mountain ranges. Here are some of the best places for trekking in Morocco:

1. Atlas Mountains: The High Atlas Mountains offer breathtaking views and challenging treks. You can explore the famous Toubkal National Park or take on the highest peak in North Africa, Mount Toubkal.

2. Jebel Saghro: Located southeast of the High Atlas Mountains, Jebel Saghro offers unique rock formations and a more off-the-beaten-path trekking experience.

3. Rif Mountains: Situated in northern Morocco, the Rif Mountains provide beautiful hiking trails through lush valleys and traditional Berber villages.

4. Draa Valley: Trek along the Draa River valley, known for its palm groves, ancient Kasbahs, and stunning desert landscapes.

5. Anti-Atlas Mountains: This lesser-known range is perfect for those seeking solitude and incredible scenery, including dramatic gorges and hidden oasis.

Remember to pack suitable gear such as sturdy footwear, sunscreen, hats, and plenty of water. It's always recommended to go with an experienced guide who can ensure your safety while exploring these magnificent landscapes.
