Atlas Mountains

Atlas Mountains Trips

Morocco's Atlas Mountains run from the Atlantic to the Sahara through the middle of the country. Their environment is harsh - baking hot in summer, snow-covered in winter - but the surprisingly fertile valleys allow the Berber tribes to cultivate a large variety of crops.

The High Atlas, Middle Atlas and the Anti Atlas each have their own characteristics, but they are all perfect locations for walking and trekking. In early spring the slopes of the Anti Atlas are gently coloured with the pale pink and white of almond blossom, while summertime in the High Atlas provides the stark contrast of lush green barley in the irrigated valleys at the foot of the barren rock strata above.
