On this 8-day all-in Sahara desert trek from Marrakesh, you will experience what the local nomad Berber culture is all about, and taste it for yourself.
We will meet on the first day in Marrakesh, and then, the following day, we will cross the Atlas mountains to get to the Sahara desert where the actual trek begins. Throughout the following days, we will enjoy the company of lovely camels as we explore this mysterious location and rest in the evening under the stars in rugged campsites. Finally, we will end up back in Marrakesh, but we will not be the same after such a fantastic experience! You can find a detailed day-by-day itinerary below.
Please keep in mind that you will need to be fit for this trekking tour and that you will need to have a sense of adventure. However, no technical skills are required. You will be traveling in a group, and we will take care of all the logistics so that you are comfortable and safe.

Since I was a kid I travelled around the hills and peaks of Sierra Nevada range in south Spain, going up and down the valleys that made me in love with the mountains world.
Steadily, I discovered other ranges of the Iberic peninsula such as the Pyrenees and Picos de Europa, and then I travelled to the peruvian Andes, the Amazonas jungle, the Moroccan Atlas...
Thanks to these experiences and two years of studying to become a professional mountain guide, I started a new project called Nevalia mountain guides.
I hope I can help you to make true your mountain dreams!

Our guide was changed on us last minute. Before the hike, I had missed the messages from the guide because the notifications went to a weird place in my email inbox. Because we messaged him late, he cancelled on us. I was worried we wouldn't be able to go on the hike at all. Luckily, we ended up going with a different guide, Victoria, who was lovely.
I really enjoyed the trip! Alejandro was a great guide. The only few things to work on are: -Alcazaba was not possible because of snow. I definitely understand this but it was not communicated until we were on the trail -Explore share was difficult as a third party to communicate with- It worked better once I got email working directly -I think the cost for the trip is high but if it goes to the guide and not explore-share that's one thing.. if a lot goes to explore-share I would prefer to find guides on my own
Excellent service. Great communication from company and flexible to meet needs. Guide was superb. Very accommodating and suggestive of different routes and activities to maximise the experience. Highly recommend to anyone looking to hire a guide.
Because of a weekday trip it was not crowded and this was very nice
My guide was actually Leonardo Ruiz Pratt and he did an excellent job!! A++
