Trekking in Morocco

Trekking in the Sahara Desert and Atlas Mountains

Morocco’s main appeal is its wonderful array of beautiful open spaces and we offer you guided trekking adventures in regions as diverse and breath taking as the Atlas Mountains, the wilderness of the Sahara Desert and the Atlantic coastline.

Visitors will have the chance to discover the outdoors of Morocco on an epic scale, relatively untouched by tourism, along with a way of life in rural areas far-removed from that in the West. You will come into contact with Berbers of the Atlas and the Sahara, Morocco’s original people, and experience some of their customs. This is a chance to create your own trek around Morocco and come and find out why people keep coming back.

Our Moroccan trekking adventures start and finish in the alluring Marrakech, but if starting here is not ideal then please speak to us about where you might want to start.

What we offer as part of our trekking adventures are:

  • transport to start / from finish points,
  • guide, cook & food, camel or mule support,
  • camping equipment and / or refuge & gite accommodation.
  • Our treks are not technical. Our Atlas Mountains treks are aimed at walkers who are moderately fit.

Should you wish to combine any of our trekking excursions together, i.e. if you want a tour of the Atlas Mountains to be combined with a tour through the Sahara, then don’t hesitate to ask us and we will advise on feasibility to make it happen.

Sahara Desert Trekking

Trekking in the desert is like no other experience and it offers a sense of space and remoteness. Especially when witnessed from the tops of the vast dunes, sleeping under the stars and listening to the music by the campfire.

Atlas Mountains Trekking

We’re inviting you to meet the Berbers, Morocco’s original people, whose domain is Atlas Mountains and discover a way of life seemingly unchanged in hundreds of years among the rugged slopes and snow-clad peaks.

Atlas Mountains Trekking

I called on Wild Morocco at short notice, just a few days before my trip, and they delivered perfectly. They managed to deliver the excursion I was looking for in the format I wanted and at the right price, taking 5 of us down South from Marrakech and back. Our driver guide was nice and knowledgable, flexible to extend his hours and get out of his way and out of our planned itinerary to take us to another Moroccan marvel! I would definitely call on them next time I go to Morocco, probably for a longer trip to discover other parts of the country.

Guillaume / Excursion - Telouet, Ait Ben Haddou, Ouarzazate

We had the most fantastic time on the tour, it was amazing to say the least! Everyone looked after us well over and beyond our expectations. The guesthouse we stayed at the first night was great and the food was really great too. We had so much fun in the desert. Our guides did the best job and they were very fun too! We loved the food, the fresh salads, soups and tagine was amazing. Every meal was really good! Thank you for helping us organise this tour and thanks to everyone involved in making our trip so fantastic!

Jess & Renn / Desert Trek 3 Days

Once again – our thanks for a splendid Day Excursion on Sunday. We thoroughly enjoyed the day. Abdol was a super driver/guide and we’re very grateful that he managed to return the fleece we inadvertently left in the car. Will definitely contact you again if we’re tempted to take up one of your longer trips.

Joe / Excursion - Telouet, Ait Ben Haddou & Ouarzazate

We had a magnificent trip to the Desert. Your team looked after us extremely well. We have some great photos we hope you can share with them. There were a few down points… Flies, sandstorm but well made up for by shooting stars and walking barefoot in the dunes. Thanks to you both for a great trip.

Once again many thanks for the wonderful organisation – we hope to repeat our visit to another part of the south, possibly next year. We wish you well in your business. Such a beautiful colourful country, friendly & kind people.

I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time and really enjoyed and appreciated everything Brahim and the others did for us. We especially were impressed by their ability to keep the chocolate frosting on the cake from melting!
