Days 5-7: High Atlas

The next days are at leisure here. You are only 40 miles from Marrakech but seemingly a thousand miles from the hubbub of the city. You can organise at the hotel to follow ancient footpaths and mule tracks that connect local villages and navigate through dramatic landscapes comprising apple orchards, walnut groves and terraced mountainsides. In the villages you will have a glimpse into a way of life that has barely changed for centuries and where traditional values and hospitality are largely unaffected by the outside world.

Day 8: High Atlas - Marrakech

Today we will drive you back to the big city. We will make a full day detour to explore the region of Ourigane with it's many small Berber villages and it is the most breathtaking part of the Atlas Mountains. Ourigane is cooler than most cities in summer and the hills and valleys are littered with dense, untouched forests, fruit orchards of lime, grapefruit and orange and roses throughout the gardens. We will arrive into Marrakech in the early evening.

Day 9: Marrakech

Sadly your journey has come to an end, we will transfer you to the airport in time for your flight home.
