8 days from £1225pp plus international flights.
If you want to experience both the peace and magnificence of the Atlas Mountains and the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, this is the trip for you.
This holiday gives you the best of both worlds - the stunning landscapes of the Atlas Mountains and the fascinating and vibrant city of Marrakech. And you explore it all on foot - getting close to nature, and meeting the local people.
On arrival at Marrakech you meet your trekking guide who will be with you for the duration of your time in the Atlas Mountains. Over the next 5 days you'll explore the area at your own pace, the precise routes selected by you and your guide to match your wishes. You stay at 2 different lodges, each providing comfy en-suite accommodation, excellent food and a traditional hammam.
Back in Marrakech you have 2 nights in a luxury hotel within the walled city. You'll see your pick of the sites in the company of an expert local guide, and have a whole day to explore independently. This allows plenty of time for shopping, enjoying local food and relaxing by the pool or on the rooftop terrace at your lovely hotel.
As always, with our tailor made holidays, this itinerary can be tweaked as you want so if you'd like more walking in the Atlas Mountains and less time in Marrakech, or vice versa, just let us know.
