Product Description

Highlights

  • The perfect introduction to Morocco; an insight into the colourful city of Marrakech along with some varied walking exploring the striking High Atlas Mountains. Based in the remote and picturesque Tijhza Village, we stay in a simple but pleasant gite and enjoy optional walks each day. The pace is relaxed, allowing us to enjoy the scenery of the mountains and learn about the way of life of the friendly Berber people. You will also have the opportunity to experience a traditional hammam, as part of Exodus’ ongoing responsible tourism project in Tijhza. Our time in Marrakech sees us exploring the busy souks or choosing to relax in the tranquil Majorelle Gardens.

It is all about adventure. That is what Exodus was founded upon and what the company is still all about. Discovering countries, cultures, environments, cities, mountain ranges, deserts, coasts and jungles; exploring this amazing planet we all live on. At Exodus, we know what makes you tick when it comes to holidays. It’s a desire shared by so many others. A yearning to visit new places and come home with a real sense of what they’re all about. This means delving into local traditions, cultures, cuisine, lifestyles – anything that contributes to its unique identity. At the same time, we always remember that we are only guests. So we travel courteously and respectfully, in smaller groups to minimise our impact, to ensure that every Exodus holiday is a beneficial experience for everyone involved. This is a philosophy we take with us around the world, helping you reach some incredible destinations on 500 itineraries across over 90 separate countries. We also strive to provide as much flexibility and choice as we possibly can, making it simple for you to experience a very different holiday. Exodus started life on 4 February 1974 when two friends got together to provide an overland truck to travel to the Minaret of Jam, deep in the heart of the Hindu Kush, the most inaccessible of the world’s great monuments. See our history page for more details about how we began and how we have grown over the past 40 years. Never travelled with Exodus before? Visit our New to Exodus page for some useful, first-timer information. Know How You know you’re in good hands with Exodus. All our office staff have a passion for travel and adventure, and between us we’ve notched up experience that spans 171 different countries – all of which means we know how to give you the best experience when you travel with us. We’ve even won awards for it. That’s not all. In their former lives, our team members have been professional archaeologists, wildlife guides, overland drivers, mountain leaders, diving and ski specialists and mountain bike gurus – and we use our expertise to give you the very best adventure possible. Extensive planning, research, fact-finding and training are just some of the ways this expertise comes through in your adventure. It is no exaggeration to say that our tour leaders can make a world of difference to the enjoyment of your holiday – so we choose them carefully. The result is that, in 2015, 97% of travellers said they would recommend us to a friend. Where possible, we train and employ local leaders because they can provide invaluable insights that enrich the trip. What’s more, this investment in local staff really helps us benefit both them and their community.

Day 1: Start Marrakech.

Start Marrakech.

Day 2: Explore Marrakech.

The day is spent in the ‘Pink City’ of Marrakech where we can soak up the atmosphere, with views of the snow-capped peaks of the High Atlas in the background. The town is a maze of bustling bazaars, palaces and mosques. In the morning we have a guided tour to orientate ourselves and the afternoon is free for individual sightseeing. You can choose whether to brave the haggling of the souks, visit the more peaceful Jardin Majorelle or relax in one of the hammam steam baths. In the evening we can visit the Djemma el Fna, the open-air central square around which Marrakech revolves. The name literally means ‘place of death’ as it was the place where the Sultans used to display the heads of their enemies. Now, with the snake charmers, water-sellers, travelling musicians, acrobats and food stalls it is a place of entertainment for both locals and visitors.

Day 3: Drive to Animiter. Walk to Tijhza and explore.

Today we drive into the High Atlas Mountains. The road up to the mountains is a real switchback but very scenic. Eventually we cross the Tizi’n’Tichka which, at 2260m, is the highest road pass in Morocco. This is a narrow range of mountains and we soon drop into the gorge on the other side. It is here that we turn off into a wide valley towards Telouet where we stop to take a look at the Kasbah. This amazing fortress/palace was the stronghold of the Glaoui clan until the late fifties. From their mountain eyrie the tentacles of their power spread out, not only across Morocco but also shook European politics. On their downfall they were dispersed and the castle fell into disrepair. Consequently, we can now only look at this labyrinthine mass from the outside. From here we push on to Anmiter where we have lunch before walking gently uphill for an hour to our gite (bags are transported separately). Late in the afternoon there’s the option to walk up to a rocky viewpoint overlooking the hills surrounding Tijhza gite.

Day 4: Varied daywalks through the mountains. These are sometimes altered to suit the weather and the group’s abilities.

Below are example walks and may be amended locally depending on the ability of the group and the weather. A moderate 6-hour loop through the Tizi’n’Ourghsan and back down the Ouarikt River to the village. Starting in the terraced fields of Ouarikt we climb up through the high summer pastures to reach the Col with fantastic views of the Ouarikt Gorge. After a relaxing lunch close to a waterfall we follow the river’s route back to the village (6 hours walking, Alt. gain/loss 600m). Leaving the gite and heading around the back of Mt n’Oughlagal (2600m), we are met with fantastic views of the valley before arriving back at the gite for lunch. In the afternoon there’s time to take a stroll around the village (3-4 hours walking, Alt. gain/loss 700m). A longer, harder day includes a visit to the beautiful Lake Tamda, strikingly azure against the stark white-rock scenery. This lake is almost a kilometre long, lying between the impressive peaks of Jebel Anghomar and Jebel Tamda. In the afternoon we retrace our steps to our start point. If the leader feels that this walk is beyond the capabilities of the majority of the group, a shorter day along the same route will be planned (9-10 hours walking or 5 hours for shorter walk, Alt. gain/loss 750m).

Day 5: Second day of group walks through the mountains.

Second day of group walks as above.

Day 6: Third day of group walks through the mountains. Evening hammam.

Third day of group walks as above. In the evening we will enjoy a well-earned visit to the local hammam. A responsible tourism projected part funded by Exodus.

Day 7: Walk to Animiter; drive to Marrakech.

We say goodbye to Tijhza and return to Marrakech by lunchtime, leaving the afternoon free for more sightseeing such as Majorelle Gardens or some last minute shopping. Alternatively, you may decide to relax in the hotel and enjoy the swimming pool.

Day 8: End Marrakech.

For those on group flights, these depart in the morning and will arrive in the UK the same day. End Marrakech.
