Morocco Hiking Tour 2019-2020

One week trekking the Atlas Mountains peaks and valleys near Fes for 2019/20.


Middle Atlas Mountains trek

Morocco is replete with exquisite places to take a hiking tour. Trekking from Fez is something that was known only to locals. Very few tour companies have ventured to offer active tours in the Middle Atlas Mountains. Things have changed when Fes has opened to tourism not only as an ancient city but also offered it Millennium old trails at the Rif as well as Atlas Mountains ranges. Berber Villages around Fes are worth every effort to really discover. Join our small group adventure trip from Fez to discover a world of marvels.
