Atlas Mountains holidays

The High Atlas is the biggest mountain range in North Africa and covers some of the most beautiful regions of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. The area offers impressive mountain photography and a terrain which invites hikers of all abilites to explore the dramatic landscapes. The high peaks force the clouds to give high quantities of rainfall, and therefore the High Atlas has many fertile valleys surrounded by rivers and waterfalls, yielding a breathtaking sight that cannot be missed. At the foothills of the High Atlas lies the small town of Ouirgane (pronounced ‘Weer-gan). Enjoying a gentle winter and moderate sumemr climate, this is the heart of Berber countryside, with picturesque villages and hamlets, forests, citrus trees (orange, lime, lemon and grapefruit), and rose gardens. The terrain affords gentle walking ooportunities, whilst a drive of just half an hour will take you into the heart of the High Atlas mountains.
