Sefrou is an ancient city at the foot of the Middle Atlas. Dive into the heart of a troglodyte village and enjoy tea with your friend Aicha - super scenery guaranteed!

Very nice for the small and the big kids.

Ifrane is an excellent tourist town under the allure of a Swiss village that no one would think to find in the Berber regions. The Middle Atlas was the first to see the evolution of skiers in Morocco, and it is the city of Azrou who had the privilege to attract top athletes there nearly 75 years ago. at Aït Ali, on the road to Ain Leuh, stop for lunch at Nerrahte Cottage owned by Anata Riad's dear friend Aziz.

Aïn Leuh is a large Berber village, not included in this tour of the Middle Atlas, but it can be arranged for you if your heart tells you.
