1 Ourika Valley

A cool escape from Marrakesh, the valley makes an easy day-trip for a walk around its waterfalls or lunch at a riverside café.

2 Atlas Berbers

The High Atlas is a stunning mountain range, populated mainly by Berbers who have a unique culture, dress and traditions.

3 Skiing at Oukaïmeden

Want to say you’ve skied in Morocco? Oukaïmeden is the spot; winter months bring snow and crowds enjoying the manageable peaks.

4 Atlas flora and fauna

Birds include bee-eaters, falcons, and other species unique to the region. Early summer sees acres of orchids.

5 Jebel Toubkal

North Africa’s highest peak is a goal for most Atlas trekkers, offering summer walks and winter mountaineering.

6 Imlil and Aroumd

These Toubkal trailhead villages are remote enough to get a taste of Berber mountain life, even if you go no further.

7 Ouirgane

This region offers hidden walks and stunning panoramas in the cooler months and plenty of outdoor activities.

8 Tin Mal

This twelfth-century mosque in the heart of the Atlas can, uniquely, be visited by non-Muslims.
