Morocco’s most popular hiking destination is Toubkal National Park, in the High Atlas Mountains roughly an hour’s drive from Marrakech. Home to Mount Toubkal, North Africa’s highest peak, this is a region of sparse, rocky and snow-capped (in winter) peaks which make for some excellent trekking and hiking, not least the famous Mt Toubkal Trek. But it’s not all heavy-going slogs; you’ll see traditional Berber villages and pretty towns, a welcome relief from the chaos and heat of Marrakech.

Hiking in Morocco

An expert guide to Morocco's best treks and hikes

From the base of a towering Saharan sand dune to the peak of Northern Africa atop Mount Toubkal, Morocco offers an amazing variety of treks and hikes. With close-contact cultural interaction in the rural villages that dot this deeply hospitable land, Morocco is one of my absolute favourite trekking destinations. Jebel (Mount) Toubkal, Morocco's best-known (and most heavily marketed) trekking area is indeed spectacular and certainly deserves the crowds it more
