Trekking & Walking holidays in Morocco

Ever since we started in 1966 our customers have asked us to arrange walking and trekking expeditions in the Atlas mountains and Sahara desert. A trekking trip is the perfect way for families, couples and groups of friends to experience the real Morocco and its people. We can provide full trekking facilities, from a day’s hike in the hills (any time of year) to a 7-day trek in the High Atlas (between April and October) or in the Sahara (between October and April), with tents, showers and lavatories, set up and waiting for you by the time you reach camp. Ask us for our suggested trek itineraries.

To include a walking tour or day-hike as part of your tailor-made Moroccan holiday call 01672 500555 to discuss your plans.

The Lawrence of Morocco map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.

I will certainly use Lawrence of Morocco again...

Good Morning Max, Sheila showed me your e-mail requesting feedback from our recent honeymoon break in Morocco. I express our total satisfaction on behalf of both of us for a wonderful week there. I won't say that the 'Tichka Hotel' was as good as the 'La Roseraie' that you upgraded us to, but in fairness, one would be hard-pressed to ...

Think hiking the hills and olive groves, reading trashy novels you couldn't get away with before Kindle.

We know Morocco intimately

Max Lawrence - MD Lawrence of Morocco

When travelling around Morocco it is not (contrary to common belief) necessary for women to ‘cover up’ out of respect for local modesty traditions. Morocco is a very mixed society with Moroccans who dress as westerners and more traditional families dressing in a more traditional way.

The only areas of the country where it is advisable for women to cover up their legs and shoulders would be in some parts of the High Atlas Mountains (very remote areas) where the locals are rarely visited by foreigners. It is highly unlikely that you will be visiting these areas on any holiday arranged by Lawrence of Morocco.
