High Atlas Adventure Details
On this exciting day trip, we travel 213 km by 4WD vehicle on an off-beat Atlas circuit of scenic contrasts. We include a drive across the barren ‘Marrakech desert’ of Agafay with a wonderful backdrop of High Atlas peaks, a visit to Lake Takerkhoust and then a scenic drive on a remote mountain road to the Azzaden Valley via Amizmiz.
After a tasty traditional Moroccan lunch at berber house , we have time to explore a Berber village on foot, relax and enjoy unrivalled views of the High Atlas Mountains.
Finally, we make our way back to Marrakech across a dramatic route which links the market town of Asni with the Ourika Valley. Views of North Africa’s highest peak, Jebel Toubkal (4,167m) are unsurpassed on a clear day.
