Starting and ending in Agadir, the Undiscovered Atlas tour is a guided deserts and canyons trip that takes 8 days. You will travel through Agadir, Tagdicht and Taroudant in Morocco. Undiscovered Atlas is a small group tour which 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.

UNDISCOVERED ANTI ATLAS
5 - Excellent
“This was the second trip my husband and I have done with Exodus and we will go on more. We had a ball.”
Relaxed walking off the beaten track
5 - Excellent
“The key really is in the name of this trip - having already done Mt Toubkal and the High Atlas a few years before, I was curious how different it would be. The answer is it's very similar, but without the altitude and people. Any people at all in fact, other than local villagers. It's also a lot easier - much less ascent and easier days”
Trekking in the Anti Atlas
4 - Very Good
“Great trek to find some winter sunshine through remote mountains. We did not see any other tourists for 5 days only our group and the local villagers.”
Undiscovered Atlas
5 - Excellent
“The Anti Atlas Mountains are somewhere to visit if you, like me, have a yearning for real and intoxicating wilderness. The harsh but beautiful terrain in this region, with it's scattered villages clinging like patches of lichen to the unforgiving landscape, brings to mind the Old Testament, and the area is characterised by dramatic valleys, harsh red rock desserts, craggy mountain ridges and distant peaks fading into the desert haze. This is a truly awesome, remote area hike and Exodus and their ground crew in Morocco present it beautifully to their clients. It is a strenuous hike with most days being around 8 hours walking. It's rocky, very rocky indeed, with lots of steep up and downs -walking poles are almost essential. According to our guide it was unseasonably hot for our trek towards the end of October, with most days being over 30 degrees ( one almost 40!) there isn't any shade protection so high factor sunscreen and appropriate light clothing are important. And plenty of water! Our guide was Abdullah, a wonderful, caring gentleman who had grown up in Berber villages. He was very well supported by his crew - cook, camp and mule men. Meals were nothing short of spectacular and each day we'd arrive into to our lunch camp to find an amazing spread of hot and cold dishes, salads and fresh fruit. I was the only one in our group of 16 to fall ill with a stomach bug but I'm absolutely certain it had nothing to do with the quality of the food. ( on that note, make sure you have more than enough tissues, toilet paper etc to get you through a couple of days 'on the run' just in case!!). Camping gear was good quality and I was thrilled to see thick foam mattresses in our tents. Being classed a wild camp, there were no toilet facilities other than our toilet tent - which was the discussion of much humorous laughter almost daily. Water for washing is also scarce (a bowl at the end if each day) so bring plenty of wet wipes.”
