The High Atlas Mountains are dominated by some of North Africa's highest peaks and their breathtaking size towering above the Berber villages provides a backdrop for our selection of small hotels. At the head of the valley leading up from the market village of Asni is the small village of Imlil. Surrounded, except for the narrow valley itself, by the imposing majesty of the High Atlas, and Toubkal Massif in particular, Imlil is the perfect starting point for all hiking in this area. The accommodation we offer here - Douar Samra is a worthy recipient of praise on environmental and conservation grounds. We recommend a stay here as a more luxurious start and/or finish to any hiking arrangements in the area.
For two decades Rediscover the World has been offering an exciting and comprehensive programme of trekking in the High Atlas. All of our treks are designed to be individual bookings or part of a larger tailor-made holiday. This freedom for start date, duration and route means they are very popular with those who wish to enjoy the incredible beauty of the Atlas Mountain region at their chosen pace.

"The two walks were very good - our guide managed to find interesting routes staying out of the worst of the snow. Even so, it was quite difficult as in places the snow was a foot deep and we weren't really equipped for it. The sun shone though and it was amazing scenery all round. We had lunch in his house on the first day and met his family which was fun. The second day we walked up to the shrine and lunched in the sun and snow. We had a traditional hamam on our last evening which was a whole new experience and very welcome."

"Just a note to say thanks for helping to arrange our trip to Morocco. The Trios Mages was a real gem. All the transfers were seamless and efficient. We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly use your services again, thanks again."

"Our accommodations in Marrakech were superior, and the mountain trek to the Azzaden Trekking Lodge and back to the Kasbah du Toubkal was first-rate. In addition, all dealings with Rediscover the World UK were exceptional."
