8 Day Atlas Mountains & Agafay Desert Trek Tour

8 Day Atlas Mountains & Agafay Desert Trek Tour

Marrakech

This private tour is suited to travellers with adventure and various modes of trekking on their mind who don’t wish to spend their time embarking on a road trip preferring instead to explore the region around Marrakech. It offers you varied remote landscapes and experiences within a compact geological area including the Toubkal National Park and Agafay Desert.

Description

This is a Desert Inclusive Tour and can be customised should you wish to extend your stay. Please note our ‘Mountain, Mule & Camel Trekking’ offers you camel trekking and an overnight stay in the desert not comprised of Saharan sand and dunes. Agafay in contrast to the more Southerly Sahara is instead an incredible desert rock terrain and deserted lunar-like plateau, stretching for miles into a seemingly time forgotten world.

The area bounded by Marrakech is rich in unique geology and offers an incredible variety of experiences for lovers of the outdoors and a sense of adventure while also providing tranquillity and beautiful Moroccan experiences in remote landscapes.

After exploring the Imperial city of Marrakech, you travel just beyond the city walls into the spectacular Toubkal National Park where your combination of trekking by foot, mule, and camel begins.

From the Berber village of Imlil you trek to the summit of Jbel Toubkal, the highest Atlas mountain peak in North Africa. On your descent, mule trek in the beautiful foothills of the Atlas before departing for the remote Agafay Desert to camel trek in terrain unique to Morocco, comprising layer upon layer of undulating rock ‘dunes’ with an overnight stay in a Desert Camp.

Atmospheric accommodations, spectacular mountain achievement, remote desert exploration and four legged friends await you on this considered tour.
