Berber trail

BERBER TRAIL - 8 days/7 nights

An 8 day and 7 night trek (6 days on horseback, 4 days in the mountains and days along the Atlantic Coast)starting from Agadir along Atlantic beaches, the coastal zone and the beautiful foothills of the High Atlas Mountains. This trek covers significant ground with a variety of terrain and passes numerous small local villages untouched by other visitors.

Day 1:

Arrive at the airport of Agadir or Marrakech, reception and transfer to your overnight accommodation (on a B&B basis) in Agadir. Briefing with the person responsible of the horse trekking, supper and overnight.

Day 2-6:

From Agadir you start on a trail that winds through the hills, where argan trees and cactus plants grow. As you climb, you can enjoy the panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean, until you reach the summit of the mountain. The walk will take you to a typical village with palm groves, where you can meet the Berbers on an ancient mountain trail.

In a colourful landscape with lots of minerals, you will cross valleys and pass traditional and lively souks, before reaching argan forests. You approach territories of the tribe of Ida ou Tanane at a faster pace, and you descend from the foothills of the High Atlas through long agricultural plains. You ride along many beaches, walk around the cliffs on foot, and ride along fields with argan trees before arriving at sunset to the camp on a large cliff overlooking the sea. At the end of each day you will experience the atmosphere of the nomad bivouac. In the camp, sheltered from the wind, you will enjoy a Moroccan meal around the campfire and spend the night in the Berber tent. Dinner and overnight stay in camps.

Day 7: 

Arrive in Essaouira. You will ride on sequences of deserted beaches and pass small fishing villages, cliffs and headlands before reaching the large beach south of Essaouira. Arrival in the early afternoon and lunch. After lunch you can visit the city of Essaouira, where you can do your last shopping and enjoy a relaxing steam bath and a massage (the hammam, massages and other treatments are at your expense). Dinner and overnight stay at a hotel or apartment in Essaouira.

Day 8:

Transfer to the airport of Agadir/Marrakech for departure.
