Kandoo's View

With a range of peaks over 4000m above sea level, including the highest point in north Africa, the High Atlas are an adventure lovers playground.  But it is not just the challenge of big mountains that makes this area so special.  The lush green valleys are filled with groves of walnut and juniper, waterfalls cascade down the mountains and form sparkling lakes surrounded by jagged peaks.  The hospitality of the local Berber people is legendary and as you travel through the region you will witness a pastoral way of life that continues now as it has for a hundred years.  The cuisine is delicious, a blend of Andalusian, Arabic and Mediterranean influences.  You will enjoy a range of tagines, fresh salads, warm flat breads, dried fruits and of course the fantastic mint tea!

If you are craving a big mountain adventure with loads of culture and experience thrown in too, look no further.

When To Trek

The main trekking season in the High Atlas in between April and October. We operate our trips between June and October when the snows have receded and the mules, we use to carry our gear, are able to cross the high passes safely. If you are looking for bright and sunny days around 30˚C with a low chance of rain then consider July and August for your trip. If you would prefer the temperature a little lower then consider June, September or October. Please bear in mind that afternoon thunder storms and heavy rain can occur at any time through out the summer months.

Atlas temps graph2

Remember that Morocco can see a temperature difference of up to 15˚C between the mountains and lower lying cities. This means when the High Atlas are a comfortable 25˚C, Marrakesh could be in the 40s.

Our winter climbs take place in January and February when the peaks have a good amount of snow and provide the best conditions for a challenging ascent with crampons and ice axe. Daytime temperatures in winter will be between 10˚C and 20˚C but well below freezing at night.

Some people prefer not to travel to Morocco during Ramadan. Some businesses may be closed at this time and you should be respectful of cultural rules around fasting and sensitive to the fact that most people will not be allowed to eat or drink anything during daylight hours. In 2021 Ramadan will fall in April / May so will not affect any of our scheduled departures.

And last, but by no means least, when you are planning your trip check out the prices of flights early. The sooner you can book, the better, as there are big seasonal variations in flight costs.
