They will warmly welcome you as soon as you arrive.

You have the chance to learn to cook traditional food like tajine, couscous, bread baking and many more dishes. Berbers also have a lot of knowledge about medicinal plants and how you can use them. They will be happy to show you.

Meet Ilyas

Member since: October 2018

Hello, my name is Ilias. I am a nomad, I am an adventurer, I am a Berber man. I breathe, live and hike in the wilderness. Come on and join me to the wild! I live in the central part of Morocco, 300 km east from Marrakesh. I have been having trekking tours from 2011, altogether over 200 visitors, from 1 person to big groups. I am your true companion and friend when we trek to the beautiful nature of Morocco. With me, you can see the real Morocco and the traditional Berber lifestyle. You are being a part of our family, living just like we do. Just come here, and I will take care of everything.
