Overview

Leave winter behind for a 90-mile supported hiking trek over mostly gentle terrain across the Anti-Atlas range in sunny Morocco. After a night in Casablanca and then two nights touring legendary Marrakech, we head south over the High Atlas to Tansikht to begin our 8-day trek with expansive views, Berber villages and authentic Moroccan food. For 8 temperate days and cool nights, a crew sets up tents, prepares our meals (even lunch!), and tends the mules carrying all gear except our day packs. Expect expansive views, rock formations, remote Berber villages, black starlit nights, and authentic Moroccan food. Afterward, relax two nights in the Atlantic seaside city of Essaouira, walk the beach, explore the harbor and artisan shops of the souk. Bargain $1,575 price plus airfare includes fully supported trek with all meals; lodging, all breakfasts, some lunches and dinners in towns, and private mini-bus ground transportation.
