9 Days Atlas Mountains Berber Villages and Moroccan Desert

Being the biggest mountain range in North Africa, the Atlas Mountain range is certainly a highlight of Morocco. It attracts trekkers from all over the world to experience its rugged massif yet gentle valleys. Undoubtedly, one of the highlights of trekking here, is the village encounters with the Berber people.

Berbers are the original occupants of this region. Famous throughout history as warriors, they were notoriously resistant to being controlled by any system beyond the tribe. As a result, they have remained fiercely independant surviving in the shadows of the Atlas Mountains and culturing the valleys providing the colours to contrast the red and brown of the mountains.
