Trekking in Morocco

Trekking in the Sahara Desert and Atlas Mountains

Morocco’s main appeal is its wonderful array of beautiful open spaces. We offer you guided trekking adventures in regions as diverse and breathtaking as the wilderness of the Sahara Desert and the Atlas Mountains.

Visitors will have the chance to discover the outdoors of Morocco on an epic scale, relatively untouched by tourism. The way of life in rural areas of southern Morocco allows for a genuine slow travel experience. You will trek with the indigenous peoples of the Atlas and the Sahara, and experience some of their customs.

Trekking the Sahara Desert is like nowhere else, and we are fortunate to hail from the region of Mhamid, in the Iriqui National Park. Our local expertise has crafted a series of desert hiking routes. However, we are able to customise any trek duration.

Our indicative desert hiking programs run from 3 days and upwards, with remote routes and wilderness camping in the unspoilt Iriqui National Park. You are unlikely to encounter many other people, except perhaps nomadic families or the occasional shepherd.

Our treks are not technical and anyone with a moderate level of fitness can take part. We offer the option to make some of the treks by camel or mule.

Should you wish to combine any of our trekking excursions together please do not hesitate to ask us  . We will advise on feasibility.

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!
