Hiking in Marrakech

We’ve been taking our guests hiking in the Atlas Mountains since 2004, so we have built up an excellent team of local guides with incredible knowledge.  There’s something for everyone, from tough to intermediate to easy. The Atlas Mountains are truly spectacular and easily accessible from Marrakech, though we would need to transport you from the city in to the mountains and, depending on the sort of hike you are interested in, it takes from 45 minutes to 90 minutes to get you to the hike start point.  However, if you’re staying in the mountains at one of our recommended hotels such as Kasbah Tamadot or La Roseraie (or even in your own country villa), the hikes are on your doorstep.

Our guides are all highly experienced and very knowledgeable, and will ensure that they go at your pace.  They will collect you from your villa, hotel or riad and take you in to the hills for an exciting and thoroughly rewarding and memorable expedition.  It’s great exercise and great fun, and the views are absolutely awesome!  Plus you’ll get the chance to see remote Berber villages and, no doubt, a shepherd or two.

If you would like to join a group, our in:spa retreats take place at a beautiful boutique hotel, Le Palais Paysan and include 2 morning hikes in the Atlas Mountains.
