What will you experience?

The Atlas massif is a true adventure for all lovers of hiking and untouched nature. It connects Morocco, Algeria and Tunis. In addition to ascending the highest peak of North Africa – Toubkal (4167m) – we will visit the ancient cities of Morocco and their most interesting cultural monuments. You will be surprised how many streams flow from all around, in a seemingly desert landscape. Massive waterfalls in the mountains seem especially unreal because you are in North Africa.

The village of Imlil is most fascinating, hidden among a thousand walnut trees. Starry skies above the Himalayas are a unique experience, admittedly, but in the mountains of North Africa their beauty is just as impressive. Sunrise is a memorable experience. The first rays of sun spread across the village like a hand fan, illuminating the houses and tree tops. Breakfast on the terrace with the aroma of local dishes mixed with the fresh morning air will bring peace to anyone. The locals live in simple houses with a flat roof, located in a drained swamp area. They speak mostly Berber, Arabic or French. They live in an interesting community and are very hospitable. Before you even manage to look around, you’ll find yourself surprised by this unusual journey full of sun rays, snowy peaks, new experiences and fun moments.
