Those who are staying in Marrakech for a few days should definitely take a trip out to the Atlas mountains. The journey through the barren, sandy landscape is fantastic and the view from the mountains is simply breath-taking. Those staying a little longer can also enjoy a trek through the countryside, depending on the time of year. It is worth contacting a local service provider for information. There are a range of different tour operators, such as Trekking Morocco, for instance. Alternatively, hotels can also provide further details.
