What people are saying about Azzaden Valley, Atlas Mountains

I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Marrakech, it was our favourite part of our travels! The hike is amazing and the route can be adjusted to suit all capabilities making it accessible to anyone! We walked for about 3-4 hrs per day covering roughly 12km each day and plenty of food was provided to keep your energy levels up. The overnight stay in the Berber village was perfect - a fire and plenty of blankets were provided to keep you warm in the colder months. Our only wish was that we could have kept going for a few more days!

Amazing walking experience! We were a very small group and Mohamed B. adapts to your level. He puts a lot of good mood and attention to make sure you have a good time, and everything you need during the trek and the night in village. Very beautiful landscapes!! And way more than expected in terms of meals and snacks. I can only recommend these 2 days in the Atlas Mountains and would definitely come back one summer. Remember to take good (mountain) shoes and very warm clothes for the evening.

Mustafa our guide was extremely cheerful and welcoming - couldn't have asked for a better guide! Took us on a stunning 2 day walk through the Berber villages and explained everything clearly. Ibrahim cooked the most delicious vegetarian food for us, in vast quantities, and in beautiful locations. The guest house along the way was cozy and bedding was provided. Wished we could've stayed for longer by the end of it!

Guide Mohammed and Chef Saeed were amazing. Great food and Guide was patient with my low fitness level. He offered additional summit hike if you want and if you are fit enough. Met the friendly locals along the way and was touched by their humbleness and welcoming gestures. Loose gravel stones along the path so make sure you have excellent shoes.

We are very happy with the activity and the guide Mohammed. We had a lot of fun together and I can only recommend booking this trip!!
