Luxury Atlas Mountains Holidays

Morocco’s mountainous spine

Atlas Mountains

The Atlas Mountains offer world class views, comprising snow capped peaks, magnificent valleys and deep gorges. This incredible mountain range spans over 1,200 miles across Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia and even offers the only ski resort in Africa. The area is also peppered with traditional Berber villages, home to the indigenous people of North Africa - a culture over 4,000 years old.

If you’re into hiking, the Atlas Mountains are the perfect location for you. Choose to scale Mount Toubkal, the highest point in Morocco, or tour the alpine valleys and gorges of the area with a local guide. Bustling Marrakech is only a 90 minute drive north too, so if you fancy a day exploring the markets and squares of this vibrant city, it’s right there waiting for you. Or, head an hour south to spend the day at Morocco’s number one seaside resort, Agadir, with its gorgeous golden sand.

Luxury holidays in the Atlas Mountains

Holidays in the Atlas Mountains will enchant and inspire with its soaring peaks, traditional Berber villages and gorgeous scenery. Spend your days indulging in luxurious Hammam spas and savouring authentic Berber cuisine, such as chicken tajine with lemon and olives, or perhaps lamb with caramelised plum. Or, choose to explore the traditional villages, where you’ll learn about the history of this ancient culture and discover their amazing craftmanship, from Tuareg and Amazigh jewellery to handmade rugs.

For those looking for a truly luxurious stay in the Atlas Mountains, Sovereign recommends Kasbah Tamadot. Nestled right in the foothills, this hotel boasts magical views over the surrounding valleys. Choose to stay in one of the 28 deluxe rooms or suites, or opt to stay in a traditional Berber tent and indulge in an authentic Moroccan experience. There’s even an al fresco roof terrace, an infinity pool and open air cinema nights. It’s no surprise that Sir Richard Branson fell in love with the resort!

Flight Information

Morocco is around 3 hours 30 minutes from the UK.

Transfer Time

The Atlas Mountains are about a one-hour drive away from Marrakesh Menara Airport.

When to go

There are no two ways about it: Morocco is a scorcher. Summers can get up to 40°C in July and August, although in coastal areas like Agadir, you’ve got the sea breeze taking the edge off. The heat is more tolerable in spring and autumn, when averages hover in the mid-20s. Remember to pack a jacket, though – things can cool down rapidly once the sun goes down.

Visa Information

Visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Morocco.

Tipping

There are no specific rules for tipping in Morocco. An upmarket restaurant may add on a service charge, so check your bill carefully. Otherwise, aim to leave around 10%. In taxis, it’s acceptable to just round up the fare. It’s a good idea to have some small change on you for paying taxis and tipping guides.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Morocco is Arabic. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
