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.
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.

We had a great time and here is my feedback.
Mrs Souad introduced herself on the journey from the airport to the Riad but we had no reason to contact her.
The Riad Camilia was terrific – Nicholas looked after us really well and was a mine of information.
We ate all of our meals in the ...
Novelist Anna Stothard travelled to Essaouira with Lawrence of Morocco in August 2012, writing for the Observer Magazine.
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.
