3 Day 3 Valleys & Berber Villages Trek
P.P. / P.D.
The 3 Day 3 Valleys & Berber Villages Trek in the Atlas Mountains is a perfect introduction to trekking in Morocco, allowing you an insight into authentic & traditional Berber culture. During the 3 days you will hike amongst cool vegetation with juniper and pine trees for perfect shade breaks, across deep gorges, gushing river streams and groves of cherry and walnut trees. You guide will explain the culture and history behind the different areas you trek through.
Whilst walking through the valleys you will come across many villages and hamlets belonging to the ethnic Berbers. These herding and farming communities are used to tourists and are more than happy to allow you to interact with them to know more about their traditions and customs. Along the way you will have the opportunity to glimpse the stunning terraces that line the valleys where they grow their corn, barley and vegetables.
We also offer a number of other opportunities for trekking in Morocco which include: 2 or 3 Day Treks to Toubkal Summit, Imlil to Setti Fadma Trek, or if you are pushed for time you could join us for a day excursion to Imlil Valley where you can have a taste of the beautiful views that the High Atlas Mountains can offer.
