IMG_2075Based in Imlil, a couple of hours out of Morocco at the base of the Atlas Mountains, Aztat Treks is an independent Berber-owned trekking company. There’s also the Atlas Trek Shop with a range of mountaineering and hiking gear for rent or purchase.

Aztat Treks offers a range of one-day and multi-day trips and hike, which can include just a (licensed) local guide, or a full support team with mules to carry the equipment and food. Accommodation is in modern igloo tents, Berber houses or mountain refuges. Transfers can be organised from Marrakech (as well as Agadir and Fes).

I did the Mt Toubkal Ascent Express Trek (2 day / 1 night) with a friend, staying in Marrakech for one night before and after our hike:
