sunny Winter Walking with log fires at night and clear air, Easter Walks taking in spring flowers, early summer in the airy heights of the Sierra Nevada mountains and the warm sunshine of southern Spain, or join us for the glowing sunsets of Autumn Walking
A 10 day tour including cultural excursions to heritage sites, some optional walks, nights in the lushly green Ouirgane valley, a desert kasbah, a luxury desert camp and the fabled city of Marrakech and some of the most amazing scenery in the world.
Requested by and recommended for our regular walkers who want to bring non-walking partners and friends: we travel south from the fabled caravanserai city of Marrakech to the apricot coloured dunes of Merzouga, taking in some optional walking in the foothills of the Atlas, the incredible gorges of the Todra and Dades, visits to heritage sites, plus a night in the dunes.
A great favourite, this easy/moderate trek now includes an extra day walking and a night in Marrakech.
Exploring the Atlantic coast on foot (with optional lifts on camels): sweeping sandy bays and rocky headlands, fishermen and farmers, tree-climbing goats and camels grazing with their young. If you love a salty tang in the air and walking with the sounds of the ocean this is the trek for you!
Moderately graded, middle mountain walks (with a few strenuous sections)
Moderately graded middle to high mountain walks (with some strenuous sections)
Alpine Spring in the Sierra Nevada - includes two nights at the Refugio Poqueira (2500m) and ascent to the highest peak of the range, Mulhacen (3479m).
