Undiscovered Atlas

The Anti Atlas Mountains are somewhere to visit if you, like me, have a yearning for real and intoxicating wilderness. The harsh but beautiful terrain in this region, with it's scattered villages clinging like patches of lichen to the unforgiving landscape, brings to mind the Old Testament, and the area is characterised by dramatic valleys, harsh red rock desserts, craggy mountain ridges and distant peaks fading into the desert haze. This is a truly awesome, remote area hike and Exodus and their ground crew in Morocco present it beautifully to their clients. It is a strenuous hike with most days being around 8 hours walking. It's rocky, very rocky indeed, with lots of steep up and downs -walking poles are almost essential. According to our guide it was unseasonably hot for our trek towards the end of October, with most days being over 30 degrees ( one almost 40!) there isn't any shade protection so high factor sunscreen and appropriate light clothing are important. And plenty of water! Our guide was Abdullah, a wonderful, caring gentleman who had grown up in Berber villages. He was very well supported by his crew - cook, camp and mule men. Meals were nothing short of spectacular and each day we'd arrive into to our lunch camp to find an amazing spread of hot and cold dishes, salads and fresh fruit. I was the only one in our group of 16 to fall ill with a stomach bug but I'm absolutely certain it had nothing to do with the quality of the food. ( on that note, make sure you have more than enough tissues, toilet paper etc to get you through a couple of days 'on the run' just in case!!). Camping gear was good quality and I was thrilled to see thick foam mattresses in our tents. Being classed a wild camp, there were no toilet facilities other than our toilet tent - which was the discussion of much humorous laughter almost daily. Water for washing is also scarce (a bowl at the end if each day) so bring plenty of wet wipes.

Alone in the Anti-Atlas Mountains

After stepping off on our trek in Irhem, we saw few sights of civilization until reaching the end point five days later. The only exception was a couple oases and small rural hamlets we passed through. There's nobody else hiking out here! The Anti-Atlas Mountains are vast and stunning. The guide and his team was great. The camp cook kept us well fed.

Undiscovered Atlas - Xmas 2014

A really good trip, thoroughly enjoyed by all members of the group. The food provided on the trek was superb, especially our Christmas dinner of roast chicken. The walking and views were superb. Although not on the itinerary we spent a night in a Barber house because of the possibility of bad weather - this mad the trip even more special. Superbly organised trip throughout with an excellent support crew. The only downside was the broken zips on many of the tents.

Undiscovered Atlas

A little blast of sunshine, exercise, stunning scenery and friendship forming to escape the November weather in the UK (although, the wind and cold on the first night did make me wonder if I'd chosen the right trip but it just got better and better in every way.)

Undiscovered Atlas

This was a fantastic trek across the less frequented smaller Atlas Mountains - The Anti Atlas, but don't be fooled, they were still huge!

Undiscovered Atlas

This trip takes you to an area of Morocco which certainly feels remote and untouched by tourism. If you like to meet people from a different culture who are genuinely friendly and welcoming, and to walk in wide open landscapes then you'll enjoy this trip. The high point of the trip is the ascent of Jebel Aklim, which gives excellent views of the High Atlas and towards the Sahara.

UNDISCOVERED ATLAS

If you love wild, untouched remote places -- clean, clear air and stunning rugged, raw mountain scenery -- and the sensation of having to walk to get there -- then you'll love this trip. A trip back in time -- biblical scenes of robed goat  herds and women collecting water from wells and streams.

Excellent trip! Beautiful, fun, different, gives you the taste of real Morocco. I was amazed by the beauty of Anti-Atlas mountains. It was my first time trekk, but definitely won’t be the last.

UNDISCOVERED ATLAS

This trip is an opportunity to explore Morocco away from the hawkers and noise of the city, to encounter its landscapes and people. As important is doing it in the company of a group of people brought together to create their own dynamic. It was fascinating and fun.

UNDISCOVERED ATLAS

This trip is graded moderate/challenging for a reason, because by the end of it you'll find walking down the street and not looking where you're putting your feet moderately challenging! If you're more a path rather than pick your way over scree person this isn't the trip for you, however if you enjoy a good scramble to the summit and wild camping then go for it!
