Trekking in Morocco
Majestic Morocco Tours offers some amazing opportunities for walking, trekking and cycling.
You will be accompanied every step of the way by a team of local guides who are licensed, safety trained, multilingual and very experienced.
They will safely guide you through the stunningly beautiful terrain of the High Atlas Mountains. These friendly Berber guides are the most caring and supportive you could hope to meet and most importantly, have trekking in their blood. To the ancient Berber people, this area is home and you will experience their way of life and return home feeling richer for the experience.
Majestic Morocco Tours offer a selection of tours which, as with all our tours, can be customised should you wish. Whether you want a simple day long guided walk or a meticulously planned cycling and camping experience – we can organise an adventure to fit.
Full transport is provided for yourselves and your mountain bikes, or alternatively we can supply the bikes too. Where necessary, mules are employed to carry your overnight packs and the camping equipment which we supply. We will discuss the criteria with you – number of people, time of year, length of adventure, trek difficulty, level of support required, trekking with animals and many others. Based on all your choices we will then use our specialist knowledge to create an adventure designed for you.
Here are some samples of the type of trek you might enjoy – Further details are available. Please contact us to find out more.

One week – High Atlas Mountain Bike Tour
The central High Atlas is Morocco’s best region for mountain biking. During this 7 day tour you will see rock carvings, lakes, Macaque monkeys, fortified houses, gorges, valleys and nomadic villages.
Climbing to altitudes of nearly 3000m above sea level, it is important that you are confident riding a mountain bike and that you are relatively fit. Some days you will cover over 30km of Mountain terrain. Accommodation each night will be in both camping and simple bed and breakfast establishments.
We will collect you in Marrakech and drive 1150km by minibus in order to transport the bikes to the starting point. We then spend the next 5 days cycling through sometimes wild terrain and traditional villages. The cycling distances each day range from 40 to 75km
