When one thinks of high mountains and vast Sahara deserts, Morocco should immediately come to mind, offering some of the most impressive mountain and desert treks in the world. Additionally, its indigenous populations of Berbers and Moors offer thought-provoking insight into ancient cultures that differ remarkably from our own. Those who dwell in the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert have long fascinated ethnologists, as they represent cultures unchanged by time. All of our treks in the kingdom mountains or Sahara oases have native Berber guides, who will enhance your travels through these little-known regions. These journeys cover regions that are unique to this destination, from the lofty crags and screes of the Toubkal, to the cedar forests of Michlefen and plunging gorges and karsts of the M'Goun valley. You will explore unusual rock formations, the pristine oases of the Jbel Sehro, and the enchanting groves overflowing with almonds, saffron crocuses, and cliff dwellings. You will also discover the picturesque plateaus, blooming wadis, oases, and palm groves in the Sahara, along with the voluptuous sand dunes and tents of the desert's nomad cultures. Nestled among the high peaks of the Atlas Mountains, you will find cultures and vistas untouched by the modernity of the twenty-first century. We welcome you to share with us an experience only an insider can offer.
