- Hike North Africa's tallest peak Djebel Toubkal, which soars to 13,671 feet, is only a two-day climb. Trekkers can find everything they need at the base of the mountain.
- Legendary hospitality Many travelers say their favorite experiences involve staying with a traditional Berber family and engaging in simple pleasures such as rambling, horseback riding, and bird-watching.
- Adrenaline junkies getting their fix From quad biking to skiing to skydiving and hot-air ballooning, outdoor activities in magical surroundings abound. Even just driving through the jaw-dropping mountains can be an adventure, with panoramas you have to see to believe.
- Magnificent views in high style Some truly first-class hotels have opened their doors to travelers in the High Atlas; the best even contribute to the local community.
- Berber tradition and culture Life in the Atlas has barely altered over hundreds of years. While the arrival of electricity and new roads has brought changes, you'll still find Berber culinary, agricultural, linguistic, and artisanal heritage alive and well.
