The Atlas mountains are some of the largest mountain ranges in Africa and the only one in North Africa. They rise to over 4000m and extend for 700km in length and 300-400m in width. In places, they are steep and difficult to access except on horseback. These trails traverse several routes and allow you to discover the beauty and character of this country.
These rides operate through the spring/summer months when the cooler mountain altitudes make riding pleasant, and riding in the desert further south is impossible (see our Sahara rides for winter options).
From mid-April - mid-May, the Valley of the Roses is filled with the beautiful wild rose whose scent fills the air and is popular the world over for perfumes.
In late May and September, journey to the Siroua Massif, wedged between the High Atlas and Anti Atlas, where beautiful green lawns alternate with dark volcanic rocks - here Saffron crops bring wealth to the region.
In early June, the Middle Atlas calls, with its cedar forests and mountain lakes.
Late June, July and August take you into the High Atlas and the foot of Mt Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa at 4167m. These are the most alpine landscapes in Morocco with highlands and forgotten valleys to discover.
