  • Overview & Itinerary
    Overview

    Discover the original inhabitants of Morocco, the Berbers, as you travel in a 4WD across the rugged landscapes of the towering Atlas Mountains.

    Traverse the trough of the valleys up to summit of the mountains, and discover smiling faces, quaint villages and an ancestral lifestyle which people thought had disappeared long ago. Your 4WD lets you get where the large tour buses can't go.

    Nature rules supreme in these regions and dictates the existence of these tribal men and women. Depending on the season, you will discover lush slopes full of sheep or snow-covered summits.

    Take in the peaceful scenery all around as you enjoy lunch in the Ecological farm of Ourika located in the famous Ourika valley.
