Day Trek to the Atlas Mountains

Day Itinerary Your driver will pick you up from where you are staying and take you to meet the guide who will show you around the amazing Berber villages. During your time there, you may have some traditional mint tea, or Berber bread and soup. The half day walk is about a 1 or 2 hour walk/mule ride at the end of which, you will be served traditional Berber lunch in a traditional Berber house – or perhaps outside under the walnut trees.
