The Atlas Mountains

Marrakesh, Morocco

Stretching 2,400kms through Morocco to Tunisia, the beautiful Atlas Mountain range includes the Rock of Gibraltar. Trekking is popular in the Atlas Mountains and can be anything from a light stroll to a strenuous hike up to the highest summit in North Africa, Jebel Toubkal. The Moroccan Grand Atlas includes the Middle Atlas, High Atlas and Anti-Atlas. There are many Berber villages in the High Atlas which maintain a very traditional way of life and can be explored by those looking to expand their cultural horizons. Some popular stopping points include Ouarzazate and the Ait Benhaddou Kasbah, both of which have featured in a number of notable films including Jesus of Nazareth and Alexander the Great. A trip to the Toubkal National Park, situated near Marrakech, is also well worth visiting.
