The Anti-Atlas is famous for its thousands of almond trees. It has many undeveloped valleys, beautiful old villages, gorges, crests and peaks. The population of the Anti-Atlas still has little experience with tourists and tourism. On the trekking you will cross this lonely, in the summer very warm area from south to north. Following the rhythm of the nomads, you will reach in five stages the town of Tafraoute, the capital of the Anti-Atlas.
On this 5-day trekking you will cross a fantastically beautiful area, through a massif that has been around for millions of years. We follow nomadic paths, reach green meadows and cross arid areas. Amtoudi is known for its Agadirs, storage castles. On the way there are marabouts, sacred sites that are still visited today, following the ancient traditions to pay homage to the saint resting here. Also on the way are ancient stone cavings from our ancestors as well as villages whose inhabitants were barely in contact with tourists. Arrived at Tafraoute you will have time to rest, to visit the town with its souk and enjoy comfortable lodging with a swimmingpool.
