Hiking in the Sahara Desert and 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 hike with the indigenous peoples of the Atlas and the Sahara, and experience some of their customs.

Hiking 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 hike 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 hiking excursions together please do not hesitate to ask us. We will advise on feasibility.

Atlas Mountains Hiking


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.
