Trekking in Morocco
Rediscover Trekking - be independent with confidence !
Since the 1990s Rediscover the World has offered an exciting and comprehensive programme of trekking in the High Atlas. All itineraries are designed to be individual bookings and can be easily integrated into our tailor-made holidays or booked as holidays in their own right (min 3 days). It is because of this kind of freedom they are very popular with those who wish to get away from it all; with Rediscover's trekking holidays you can enjoy the incredible beauty of the Atlas Mountain region at your chosen pace and for the duration and route of your preference.
What kind of itineraries can you book with Rediscover ?
Rediscover's treks vary from day hikes in the beautiful lower areas of the High Atlas to much longer and strenuous treks through the Toubkal Massif, Tichka Plateau and other regions within Morocco's fabulous mountains. Each trek can be pre-booked to start on any date, subject to sufficient notice, to suit your own holiday arrangements and for any number of people. Whether you wish to take a gentle hike in the Immouzer area (Paradise Valley) or a fully-guided trek to the summit of Mount Toubkal (North Africa's highest peak) we can arrange everything.
Why book with Rediscover Trekking ?
Our treks organiser (UK) and our head guide (Imlil) have many, many years of experience of arranging treks in Morocco. The itineraries we offer are fully thought through for their tailor-made purpose, i.e. times are based on a small party and allow for amendments and short cuts if necessary for any reason.
We have detailed maps, which are difficult to obtain outside Morocco, and a wealth of experience in the areas we offer trekking so feel free to contact us to discuss your individual requirements.
We are also experts for accommodation in Morocco, why not book your riad in Marrakech or your small hotel in the Atlas Mountains with us at the same time as your trek reservation.
... and if you have a group.
We also provide considerable expertise in arranging group trekking in Morocco including all the important associated requirements such as discounted flights, group bookings at hotels (or riads) and any additional transport or sightseeing.

However, many can also be reserved as stand-alone trekking bookings.
This means that ALL of our treks are available to be pre-booked for ANY start date.

" I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you very much for organising a fantastic trip for us. Everything worked out perfectly. Kasbah Samra was wonderful - just wish we had a bit more time there! Mohammed who was our guide on the trek was excellent as were the 2 mule guides. We camped all three nights and had some wondeful food prepared for us. The trek up Toubkal was fabulous, after a very stormy night the weather cleared and we had a thick covering of snow on top. From arriving at the airport to the transfer into Marrakech we were wll looked after by all involved." - Kate Kirby - (Oct, 2012)
This was a wonderful holiday in Morocco and we want to return. In high Atlas our guide Mohammed Jellah and muleteer, also Mohammed were all we could have wished for; friendly, very informative about the region, about nature, wildlife, the socio economic situation. We ate like royalty-delicious homemade tagines cooked up in challenging circumstances. Because of exceptionally hot weather-maybe 40 C even at 2000 m, we had to adapt the itinerary but this was done with much information and discussion with the guide. We got to visit some fine Berber villages and will return to head over the mountain pass we missed. We have never had a mountain guide or muleteer before but we realise we could not have had such an interesting and rewarding time without them- they were excellent. Thank you for providing this holiday and for all your help." - Alison and Peter BROMHEAD - (Sept, 2012)
" We had a wonderful time in Morocco and would return there for more trekking in the future.
".. the hiking trip into the Atlas Mountains was the highlight of my entire vacation. Hocinn, Muhammad and particularly Abdulah were great. The best guides I have ever worked with. I look forward to recommending your company to my friends and family and will tell them to request Abdulah and Muhammed as guides. They are two very nice people and two great guides. Thank you for putting this trip together for me. I look forward to speaking to you again in the future" - D O'Leary (November 2011)
" Despite the unusual snowfall for March, we had a truly superb time on the trek. We were very impressed with the guide's mountaineering skills and very much appreciated his approach towards safety in the mountains. Abdou managed to come up with an alternative itinerary that we really enjoyed, including some tough trekking above 3000m as well as some relaxing walks through the beautiful landscape of the Vallee des Ait Bourgmez. All-in-all, a really great holiday." - Mr Bennett (April, 2011)
" Just to let you know that our trip to Morocco was absolutely perfect - Dar el Hana was a great place to stay and the trek was gorgeous. We were also extremely happy with the guide (Abdou Fadil) who cooked excellent food and generally looked after us. " - A. Volfing (March, 2011)
" Your organisation was impeccable, the riad fantastic and the trek left me speechless. I have really enjoyed your service and I will surely contact you in the future. " - L. Trespidi (Jan, 2011)
" Just wanted to let you know that we spent wonderful days in Morocco. The trip was perfectly organised and our guide Abdullah and Hussein the muleteer wereboth very nice, knew the area very well and we always felt we were in good hands. The area itself was truly spectacular and unique. Wonderful mountains and absolutely no tourists. Thank you again for making this wonderful experience possible."
"I just wanted to thank you personally for arranging this very enjoyable and hassle-free trek. We had a great time and felt that we got to see a part of the Atlas Mtns not usually seen."
"The trekking was fabulous, and again we felt well looked after by the guide and cook."
"Our holiday in Morocco was fantastic, many thanks. Abdou Fadil was our guide and I cannot praise him highly enough. He was extremely professional and competent throughout, as well as making a charming companion. His English is excellent (as well as his French, Berber and Arabic). He displayed enormous ability in ensuring that his team worked together very well (Mohammed was a very good cook and he and Ibrahim made a very reliable and friendly support team."
"All the transfers went well ... the accommodation was excellent and the arrangements for the trekking went equally as well. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and helpful as were the muleteers who helped him. We met up with other larger groups at the Toubkal Refuge and this confirmed our choice of travelling with a smaller group on our tailor-made trek. I would definitely recommend your services to anyone."
"Our guide in Toubkal, Abdul Abraheem, was fantastic. He is just 20 yrs old but brilliant with people and a really great guy. Mohammed was also very attentive and invited us for mint tea at his house ... the whole area is superb in any way."
"Hamed and Hussain, our guide and cook were good guys, our driver was great - very nice chap"
"We have just returned from a very successful trek to Morocco. We were very impressed with all the organisation: from being collected in Marrakech to the final pick up in Setti Fatma. During the trek our guide, muleteer and cook were all charming and helpful. They fed us extremely well. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed this holiday which has given us insight into the lives of the Berber people and some wonderful memories."
"I wanted to say how much we enjoyed the trek - it all went smoothly and we had an excellent time. We looked at a number of trekking companies before booking but booked with you because you were helpful in advising suitable treks, etc."
"excellent guide, good food. Found that the fact we could tailor the itinerary was excellent."
"The trekking guide, Mohammed, was excellent, as were his 2 colleagues."
"The trek was excellent and we were really well looked after by the guide and team. We really appreciated having the compressed itinerary as this proved perfect for our fitness levels and strange desire to walk really hard - but still left us plenty of time to relax at the end of the day."
"trekking guide and muleteer/cook were excellent."
