Morocco // The High Atlas //


The village and ski centre of OUKAÏMEDEN is a calmer and much easier trekking base when compared to Setti Fatma, especially in the summer and for those setting out towards Toubkal, and a good target in its own right. In summer, there are some attractive day hikes, and the chance to see prehistoric rock carvings (see Prehistoric rock carvings in the Atlas), while in winter, of course, there is the chance to ski – and it’s hard to resist adding Africa to a list of places you have skied.
