Atlas Trekking & Camping
If you're trekking in the Atlas Mountains, you will require a good level of fitness and should ensure that you pack a decent pair of walking boots that have been worn in before the trek, to avoid blisters and painful feet.
We offer a very unique Migration of the Berbers camping trek. On this trek we go off the beaten track and there are no official camp sites with facilities en route, so bush camps will be used throughout. Tents and sleeping mats are provided but you will need to bring your own sleeping bag. The guides and trekking crew will set up the camp each night and there will be a cook to prepare the food. With regards to ablutions, you will use a drop toilet (hole in the ground!) and there will be buckets of water for you to use to wash yourself, but no showers. This is a truly authentic experience, that offers a great insight into the nomadic Berber way of life!
Most travel insurance does not cover for trekking above 2000m as standard and you may have to pay a premium to cover yourself for higher altitudes. It is essential that you get the correct level of cover so please check the maximum altitude you'll be trekking to before arranging your insurance. Our Migration of the Berbers trek reaches a maximum altitude of 3200m.
