Trekking Articles & Client Feedback

We would like to thank you for a wonderful trekking trip you arranged for us. It went ever so smoothly from day one! All the people who looked after us were lovely people. Ahmed and Hassan makes the best guide! Mohammed fed us tasty food and the Mohammed who owns the guest house, took really great care us too. All the accommodations were nice, clean & cosy. Also we really enjoyed the hammam bath. I will be bothering you again to book more trips for us! With Regards Vanita & Gulab
We want to thank you for helping us organize this trip. Although we chose an unusual time for a trek around M'Goun we had an amazing time, thanks to our guide Brahim. He took care of everything in a very friendly and relaxed way. We spent 9 great days in the mountains, did treks including valleys, gorges, villages and although we didn't reach the summit, because of snow and quickly changing weather on the day of ascent, it didn't spoil the fun and we absolutely enjoyed every moment spent there. It was one of the best experiences we've ever had.
New Zealander Kathy Ombler did a combined Desert Tour and Trek with Trek Atlas in November 2010. To find out more and read her comments, download the illustrated article she wrote about her experience for Fortify magazine. Download the article here.
Trekking in the Atlas mountains with children combined adventure with additional responsibilities. Ahmed Zin, our experienced guide from Trek Atlas, and his colleague, Hassan Bassaid, with the team of cuisinier and muleteers understood how to make the trek enjoyable for our families. They inspired confidence immediately by their caring approach and their attention to safety.
I had a wonderful time and did some lovely walks. Thank you for helping me to organise the trip. I hope to come back in the summer for another trip. Aoife
C´est Anastasia. On est déjà de retour á la maison, et je voulais te raconter que tout est allé très bien, la réception á Marrakesh pour Ahmed et notre guide Mohamed, le trek, les camps, les muliers Omar et Ali (ils ont travaillé trés bien pour nous, tout était toujours prêt, les repas trés bons...), et en plus, on est arrivé jusqu´au sommet du M´Goum avec trés mauvais temps mais sans aucun problème merci á notre guide Mohamed. On est trés content. Je t´envoie quelque photos pour si tu veux les mettre dans la page de trekatlas. Merci et salutations. Anastasia.
Having successfully completed our trek with Trek Atlas (6 days from 10/06 until 16/06), and returned home from Morocco, we wanted to provide some feedback. We completed a 6 day trek with Trek Atlas from 10/06 until 16/06/2011. Our original aim was to do the Toubkal circuit via Lac D'Ifni and climb Toubkal. Unfortunately there was still too much snow on some of the high passes at this time (and therefore they were impassable for mules), but Ahmed was able to agree with us an alternative route that was to be very interesting / challenging and still combined it with the Toubkal ascent.
Coloradan Tom, Virginian Ron, Kansan Steve, and Texan Jim were Morocco bound when we signed up for a seven-day trek in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco in October 2009. The objectives were to claim Africa as another continent under our hiking boots and to climb the 13,665-ft Jebel Toubkal, the tallest mountain in North Africa.

With the increase in direct flights to Morocco, more and more people are visiting not only the tourist coastal resorts of Agadir and Essouaria, but are flying into Marrakech to experience the sights and sounds of the bazaars and souks – so different from anything in Europe.
What is it really like trekking in the High Atlas mountains of Morocco? In May 2008 a group of us found out when we did a 6 day trek from Imlil with Ahmed as our guide. It was our first experience of a “guided tour” and we had no regrets at the end.
