These fully guided day hikes offer a wide variety of scenery in and around the foothills of the High Atlas, near Tahanoute. They are designed to start by walking directly from your accommodation at the fabulous Kasbah Angour. All hikes include an experienced English-speaking guide, full back up if required and provide a good day's walking without a VERY early start. Also included is a lovely fresh picnic lunch or a warming tagine option in winter months.

Essentially, these walks take you up and down a maximum of 500-600 metres and are not at all strenuous. Your guide will bring you up into charming hidden valleys and to meet the mountain Berber families in their own environment.

Kasbah Angour - Zawit Bouhita - Ighighayne Valley - Aghzane - Tizi n'Toyalt - Kik Plateau - Moulay Brahim - Kasbah Angour

A 9am departure from this beautiful hotel overlooking the Sidi Farès river valley. Your initial route is to descend to the berber village of Zawit Bouhita (950m) and then use the new bridge to cross the Ighighayne river. Afterwards, continue climbing to Aghzane (1200m) and up to the Tizi n'Toyalt where you will stop for your picnic lunch overlooking the Kik Plateau. In the afternoon your guide will take you to the village of Moulay Brahim. The zaouia of moulay Ben Brahim was founded in 1628 during the reign of sultan Zidan Abu Maali in the village 'Kik', since named 'Moulay Brahim' after the Sufi saint.  From here you will descend to rejoin the Ighighayne river at Azragie Moulay Brahim where you'll rejoin your transport to return to the Kasbah.
