  • A genuinely remote trek in the stunning Anti Atlas
The "Undiscovered Atlas" tour starts and ends in Agadir. It is a deserts and canyons trip that takes 8 days taking you through Tagdicht, Taroudant and Jebel Aklim in Morocco. "Undiscovered Atlas" is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

A fantastic winter trek in the dramatic and isolated Anti-Atlas mountains. Marvel at kasbahs perched above terraced valleys and wide oases, as well as distant peaks fading into the desert haze. The ascent of Jebel Aklim (2531m) provides wonderful views of the snow-covered High Atlas. Walking through small Berber villages brings you closer to the locals and their way of life. The trek ends in Taroudant, with time to experience the souks and the ancient city walls.

Thoroughly enjoyable trip
“I enjoyed this trip wholly. The walking was good - not particularly difficult (though rocky underfoot) but up and down enough to be interesting, and with one or two more challenging moments - good scenery - terrific open views at times - and as people have said, a complete lack of other tourists or walkers. Some of the campsites were remote and beautiful and as Jennifer has said, the night skies were an absolute treat. We were blessed by good weather throughout the trip - warm sun, fresh air, cool but not freezing nights; overall it was less cold than I had expected. The company was excellent, the team looking after us was excellent - the logistics managed with seamless efficiency. The food was very good, the tents and mats were good. Morocco is a beautiful country; I will keep returning.”

A Winter Treat in the Mountains
“This mid-winter festive season trek in The Anti Atlas transported me into an unspoilt world of spectacular beauty with a extraordinary sense of isolation. We wandered these mountains without any sign of tourist life and only Berber life when reaching our lunchtime oasis and evening camps. We experienced beautiful sunny days, perfect for comfortable walking and in contrast very cold nights in this mountainous terrain that each day brought a different rock formation, landscape and views. A great group of people led by Youssef our guide and fed by Hasan the chef and his 2 helpers that managed to surprise us for 7 days with delights from his simple portable kitchen.”

Remote trekking at its best
“Adventure holidays dont get much better than this. Inexpensive, nearby (three and a half hours from London Gatwick) yet it feels like youre a world away from home.”

Brilliant trip - would definitely recommend
“Undiscovered Atlas was a brilliant trip. 5 days without internet or phone reception, and just endless, beautiful scenery. Lahcen was a brilliant guide, and the chef Hassan whipped up amazing meals in the middle of nowhere. I definitely didn't expect 3 course lunches and dinners which were all superb.The walking was great, really varied landscapes, and there was a great sense of achievement at the end of the day when we made it to the camp.Whilst it was April, the weather was definitely changeable, with thermals needed one day, and the next hats and suncream. Make sure you take clothes for all weathers. Views were spectacular, so a good camera is definitely worth taking along.”
