Dinner and overnight stay in one of the most beautiful hotel of the region.

Day 3: Midelt – Tattiouine – Berber Camp
After a peaceful night, we will be ready to start our first day of trekking in the National Park of the Oriental High Atlas. We will leave Midelt early in the morning (7:00 am) and reach the village of Tattiouine (1700m) in our off-road. Once we have loaded the baggage onto the back of the mules, we will head off to the West where, after enduring  a drop of 1290m, we will finally go up to a mountain pass which lies at an altitude of 2990m. After lunch, we will continue the trekking for few more hours and in the afternoon, we will arrive at a Berber camp (2681m), where we will spend an unforgettable night in the forest. Dinner and overnight stay in tents.

Day 4: Berber Camp
The second day will begin with a quiet morning, which includes breakfast and a walk around the camp. This will be an opportunity to meet the local people, have a first contact with them, participate in their activities or play with the Berber children. In the late afternoon, we will return to our camp. In the evening, we will enjoy a delicious dinner prepared with local products. Overnight stay in tents.

Day 5: Berber Camp – Small Gorges
We will wake up early in the morning and quietly take our breakfast. During this third day of trekking, we will head off to the West, through mountains and plains, up to reach the 3334m (with the possibility to climb up to 3740m). After a healthy lunch, we will continue for another 1200m up to the Small Gorges. From time to time, we will make some stops to enjoy the wonderful landscape and take pictures. Once we will leave behind us the gorges, we will stop and we will put up our tents near the home of a Berber family that will welcome us with the usual Moroccan hospitality. Dinner and overnight stay in tents.

Day 6: Small Gorges – Forest of cedars – Jaffar Gorges
After a good breakfast that will fill us with energy, we will be ready to go for a walk in the forest of cedars along a pretty pathway lying still in high altitude (above 2000m).

Dinner and overnight stay in the hotel.
