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.
All hikes are individual, tailor-made reservations so can be arranged for any number of people on any start date. Please do not hesitate to contact us to book one of these hikes or to enquire further about the itineraries, locations and terrain.
