Itinerary

icon Day 1 : Start Marrakech.

Location: Marrakech

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: Mogador Opera or similar)

Meals: No Meals

Sart in Marrakech. Free transfer to start hotel. Meet the group in the early
evening for our briefing. 


icon Day 2 : Explore Marrakech; visit the Djemaa el-Fna Square to explore labyrinth of souks with our expert guide. Free afternoon.

Location: Marrakesh

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: Mogador Opera or similar

Meals: Breakfast

The day is spent in the 'Red City' of Marrakech where we can soak up the
atmosphere of the towns maze of bustling bazaars, palaces and mosques. In the
morning we have a guided tour to orientate ourselves and the afternoon is
free for individual sightseeing. You can choose whether to brave the haggling
of the souks, visit the more peaceful Jardin Majorelle or relax in one of the
hammam steam baths.

In the evening we visit the Djemma el-Fna, the open-air central square around
which Marrakech revolves. The name literally means 'place of death' as it was
the place where the Sultans used to display the heads of their enemies. Now,
with the snake charmers, juice-sellers, travelling musicians, acrobats and
food stalls it is a place of entertainment for both locals and visitors.


icon Day 3 : Drive to Anmiter; walk to Tijhza and explore.

Location: Anmiter

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: Riad Brouhaha

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Today we drive into the High Atlas Mountains. The road up to the mountains is
a real switchback but very scenic. Eventually we cross the Tizi'n'Tichka
which, at 2260m, is the highest road pass in Morocco. This is a narrow range
of mountains and we soon drop into the gorge on the other side. It is here
that we turn off into a wide valley towards Telouet where we stop to take a
look at the Kasbah. This amazing fortress/palace was the stronghold of the
Glaoui clan until the late fifties. On their downfall they dispersed and the
castle fell into disrepair. Consequently, we can now only look at this
labyrinthine mass from the outside.

From here we travel on to Anmiter where we have lunch before walking gently
uphill for an hour to our riad through lush farm land of fruits, nuts and
vegetables (our luggage will be transported to the village for us).



icon Day 4 : A moderate 6-hour loop through the Tizi'n'Ourghsan and back down the Ouarikt River to the village.

Location: Anmiter

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: Riad Bouchahoud

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

A moderate 6-hour loop through the Tizi'n'Ourghsan and back down the Ouarikt
River to the village. Starting in the terraced fields of Ouarikt we climb up
through the high summer pastures to reach the Col with fantastic views of the
Ouarikt Gorge. After a relaxing lunch close to a waterfall we follow the
river's route back to the village

icon Day 5 : Hike up and around Mt n'Oughlagal (2600m). Afternoon Hammam.

Location: Anmiter

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: Riad Bouchahoud (or similar)

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Leaving the riad and heading around the back of Mt n'Oughlagal (2600m), we
are met with fantastic views of the valley before arriving back at the gite
in time for a late lunch. Please note that the hike includes a scramble along
a steep sandy section of trail which can be a bit more challenging and is
especially tricky in wet weather conditions. The rest of the afternoon to
explore the village, take a short a walk or relax with a book on the large
terrace overlooking the Tijhza valley. 

On our return, we will visit the village hammam, built with money raised by
our passengers. This is a truly authentic and enjoyable experience. It is
very much a local hammam and you are likely to get the opportunity to mix
with the villagers, which further adds to the experience. A standard
treatment is included, but you will need to purchase a scrubber and soap for
20MAD (£1.50) plus customary tip of 20MAD. Refreshed, we return to the riad
for our final dinner in the mountains

icon Day 6 : Optional harder day, with the chance to trek to beautiful Lake Tamda. This is a very long day, 9-10 hours trekking, and if preferred the guide can offer a shorter route on this day instead. 

Location: Anmiter

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: Riad Bouchahoud

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

A longer, harder day includes a visit to the beautiful Lake Tamda, strikingly
azure against the stark white-rock scenery. This lake is almost a kilometre
long, lying between the impressive peaks of Jebel Anghomar and Jebel Tamda.
In the afternoon we retrace our steps to our start point. If the leader
feels that this walk is beyond the capabilities of the majority of the group,
a shorter day along the same route will be planned. 



icon Day 7 : Walk to Anmiter; drive to Marrakech via the highest mountain road in the Atlas. Free afternoon for shopping or a visit to the Majorelle Gardens.

Location: Anmiter, Marrakesh

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: Mogador Opera (or similar)

Meals: Breakfast

We say goodbye to Tijhza and return to Marrakech by lunchtime leaving the
afternoon free for more sightseeing such as Menara Gardens or some last
minute shopping. Alternatively, you may decide to relax in the hotel and
enjoy the swimming pool.



icon Day 8 : End Marrakech.

Location: Marrakech

Meals: Breakfast

For those on group flights, these depart Marrakech in the morning and arrive
in the UK the same day.

Food

All breakfasts, 3 lunches and 4 dinners included. Breakfasts usually consist of porridge, bread and jam with coffee or tea. When eating out, meals are reasonably priced - kebab and bread cost only about £4 (approx. US$6.50). In main towns it is possible to find very good French and Moroccan restaurants where a meal with wine will cost anything from £20 (approx. US$30) upwards. Generally dinner is likely to cost between £5-10 (approx. US$8-15) depending on what you drink. £15 (approx. US$25) a day for food should be sufficient. Local beers, wines and soft drinks are available at very reasonable prices but you can pay UK prices or more for imported alcohol. Your leader can help recommend restaurants each evening. Vegetarians can be catered for but there is a fairly limited choice of cous cous and tajine or omelettes. This is particularly the case during the more rural or trekking sections of the trip. Please note that if you have any special dietary requirements you should inform the Exodus Office prior to the trip. If you have a specific medical/dietary need (i.e. coeliac or vegan) you may find it helpful to bring some items of food with you from home.  If you are travelling from UK we advise you buy your own water purification tablets in the UK and take them with you. Bottled water can be purchased throughout the trip. Please note recycling is not fully established in Morocco so plastic bottles are an increasing waste problem. We encourage you to bring water bottles and a means of purifying, filtering or sterilising water (see packing section) in order to be able to drink cool water from mountain streams. Bottles of water are available but we strongly discourage buying these as it contributes to plastic waste.

This trip lived up to the hype and I found the trip to be well run and very enjoyable.

The week I went was a Solo departures week with only one couple.

The mixture of people was great and I felt happy to chat to every single one of the 15 people in our group (16 inc me).

I've made some good friends and I only wish some of them were closer to me so I could keep in touch.

If you've not travelled as a solo traveller before, go for it! - You won't feel awkward or disappointed.

This was my first visit to North Africa and I loved the clear blue sky, the winter sunshine and the fresh air in the mountains.

It was a real contrast with the vibrant city of Marrakech- both the old part of the city and the Ville Nouveau.

The trip was nicely paced with a combination of group activities and time to explore the city.

The walking in the mountains was really enjoyable- with two easier days and then a challenging long day.

All three walks were very different in duration (10, 5 and 17 miles!) and very diverse (considering they all started & finished from the village) but the views were always stunning.
