Atlas mountain hotels

The Atlas Mountains are a magnet for trekkers, mountain bikers, enthusiasts of Amazigh (Berber) culture and anyone in search of solitude. There are three ranges: the Middle Atlas, with its cedar forests and birdlife, the seldom-visited Anti-Atlas and the soaring heights of the High Atlas, culminating in 4,167-metre Jebel Toubkal.

Amizmiz Atlas mountains Marrakech Morocco

Amizmiz is a small town 55 km south of Marrakech in the Atlas mountains with wonderful scenery and within easy access of other areas of interest such as Asni, Ouirgane and the Lake Lalla Takkerkoust.

Asni - Atlas mountains

Located in the foothills of the Atlas mountains, Asni is a well visited small Berber town. About 50 minutes drive from Marrakech the souk or market is on Saturday. It can be quite busy there on souk day and local hustlers can be a little overwhelming. The drive from Marrakech to Asni is very pretty. In Asni there are a few cafes where one can find a good tagine for lunch overlooking the river, where women can be seen doing their washing and carpets are laid out to dry on bushes.

Turn left at Asni and follow this road for about 7 km to Imlil where life is much calmer and quieter. Imlil is a small Berber village in a stunning valley where you can go for the day and pick up a local mountain guide who will take you on a short or long walk through some of the most beautiful scenery Morocco has to offer.  Finish up for tea in a Berber home and enjoy the wonderful natural hospitality of these kind mountain people.

Middle Atlas Area, Atlas Mountains, Morocco

The Middle Atlas provinces cover 23,000 km² in area and comprise 18% of the total mountainous surface of Morocco. The provinces of Khènifra, Ifrane, Boulmane, Sefrou, Khemisset, El Hajeb, as well as parts of the provinces of Taza and of Beni Mellal, lie in the Middle Atlas region. Béni Mellal on the Oum Er-Rbia River is designated "the doorway to the Middle Atlas."

Ouirgane in the high atlas mountains Morocco

Ouirgane sits over 1000 metres above sea level in a very beautiful valley in the high Atlas mountains. Only 75 minutes drive from Marrakech, it is a great place to relax totally amongst kind Berber people, spectacular natural views and the pleasures of a 'simple life'.
The souk or market is on Thursday and people come from the surrounding villages and valleys to buy and sell goods. Walking and mule trekking are the most common daytime activities in the area and the hotels we work with can arrange mountain guides to accompany you for a half or full day. Ouirgane is a perfect combination with a few days in Taroudant, which is reached by crossing the spectacular Tiz n Test pass.


The Ourika valley is located at the western end of the High Atlas Mountain range, with a river feeding lush green fields from which sprout groves of lemon, orange and olive trees. Visit the Berber villages and houses hanging onto the mountainside, the waterfalls and rocky landscapes.

Taliouine, Morocco

Taliouine is a small town located on the border of the Anti-Atlas and High-Atlas mountains, at a height of 1200m.
