Undiscovered Atlas

From £549 for 8 days
Trip Overview
A fantastic winter trek in the dramatic and isolated Anti-Atlas mountains. Marvel at kasbahs perched above terraced valleys and wide oases, as well as distant peaks fading into the desert haze. The ascent of Jebel Aklim (2531m) provides wonderful views of the snow-covered High Atlas. Walking through small Berber villages brings you closer to the locals and their way of life. The trek ends in Taroudant, with time to experience the souks and the ancient city walls.

Adventure holidays don’t get much better than this. Inexpensive, nearby (three and a half hours from London Gatwick) yet it feels like you’re a world away from home.
       
Undiscovered Atlas was a brilliant trip. 5 days without internet or phone reception, and just endless, beautiful scenery. Lahcen was a brilliant guide, and the chef Hassan whipped up amazing meals in the middle of nowhere. I definitely didn't expect 3 course lunches and dinners which were all superb. The walking was great, really varied landscapes, and there was a great sense of achievement at the end of the day when we made it to the camp. Whilst it was April, the weather was definitely changeable, with thermals needed one day, and the next hats and suncream. Make sure you take clothes for all weathers. Views were spectacular, so a good camera is definitely worth taking along.
       
A great trek to take in the Anti Atlas. Traditional villages, blossoming almond trees, and unexpected blooming mountainsides. Delicious food, guides, Lahcen and Hassan were excellent and able to set a steady pace, catering for all levels. Fabulous fellow trekkers made it unforgettable.
       
A wonderful get away from it all trek, well organised, great scenery, food, leaders and fellow travellers.
       
One of our best trips with Exodus, great trekking weather but a tad chilly at night. Loved the vast expanses of beautiful stratus, cliffs, mountains, river beds and Beautiful old isolated villages. Lahcen and Hassan were the most fun professional guides and nothing was too much trouble. Would certainly return to Morocco 👏👏
       
Excellent trip, fantastic food, really good group and guides who were experienced, knowledgeable and genuine. Would go again in a heart beat!
       
This is a fab trip to get away from it all. Stunning scenery, remote locations make you feel you have stepped back in time and are seeing a people who have lived the same way for centuries. We saw no-one except villagers who came out to smile and watch people mad enough to walk fur pleasure. We were looked after brilliantly by our guides and their team. The food was plentiful and delicious. Having no internet relaxed the brain! A wonderful relaxing trip.
       
This is a wonderful, wild trek in the anti-atlas mountains. Stunning scenery in brilliant remote landscapes - we didn't see another tourist all week. The walking is not too challenging, but has enough uphill sections to make you feel you've earned your delicious lunch and dinner. The campsites were in incredible locations. Our guides Lahcen and Hassan were brilliant - so attentive, kind, and supportive - as were the fellow travellers.
       
Had an extremely good time on this trip, and would definitely use Exodus again
       
This mid-winter festive season trek in The Anti Atlas transported me into an unspoilt world of spectacular beauty with a extraordinary sense of isolation. We wandered these mountains without any sign of tourist life and only Berber life when reaching our lunchtime oasis and evening camps. We experienced beautiful sunny days, perfect for comfortable walking and in contrast very cold nights in this mountainous terrain that each day brought a different rock formation, landscape and views. A great group of people led by Youssef our guide and fed by Hasan the chef and his 2 helpers that managed to surprise us for 7 days with delights from his simple portable kitchen.
