Day 2: Agadir - Legzira

  • We leave Agadir to join the Southern Coast. You will have time to see fishermen's villages and their troglodytic houses on the small 4X4 trail which runs along the sea cliffs. Have a genuine experience of Morrocco, far away from the crowds in this preserved wild coast. With a bit of luck we will see the bald ibis, an endemic bird in Morocco that is much sought-after by ornithologists. We then reach a coast road leading us to Legzira where the wind and the waves have sculpted three big red rock arches on the sand. Stroll along this very long beach and enjoy the breath-taking landscape. Admire the incredible colors at sunset.
  • Dinner and overnight stay in a guest house with direct access to the beach.

Day 3: Legzira - Amtoudi

  • Short stop at Sidi Ifni, a former Spanish enclave. Sidi Ifni has kept the appearance of a Spanish village from the 30's. You will feel the calm, unrushed pace of life.
  • We will then reach Amtoudi, a canyon where 300 families still live. You definately won't see any touist coaches here! This is our favorite spot. It's a very quiet place where you will have time to meet the inhabitants and understand their way of life. An unforgettable, authentic day in the life of a village.
  • Walk across the gorges to the source and retention pond. Have a swim in the gueltas (natural swimming pools) in this stunning landscape.
  • On our way back, visit an agadir (an old fortified granary also used as a refuge in case of threats) wonderfully preserved and seemingly growing straight out of the rocky mountain (completely different from the one seen before)
  • Dinner and overnight stay in a charming guest house with a fantastic view of the canyon.

Day 4: Amtoudi - Tafraoute

  • Via an exceptional trail we will reach a village in the heart of a canyon: Igmir. An impressive 4X4 ascent of the canyon to get to the Smouguene canyon.
  • At a height of 1200m, we arrive in Tafraoute, capital of the Ammeln (a tribe known for its commercial abilities and business acumen). This village is at the heart of many mountains.Enjoy the natural splendors of walking around the area in the afternoon. You will see women dressed up with the traditional black haik and beautiful red Tafraoute babouches (slippers) .
  • Fascinating visit of a traditional house.
  • Dinner and overnight stay in guest house. Wonderful panoramic views of the valley from the terrace.

Day 5: Tafraoute - Taroudannt

  • Driving on one of the most beautiful roads of southern Morocco, the Aït Baha road, with multiple magnificent landscape views
  • At the heart of the Souss plain, a 7km wall surrounds Taroudannt, the first Saadians sultans' capital in the 16th century. After lunch, a walk in the old city will allow you to capture the city's atmosphere. Taroudannt is also called « little Marrakesh ».
  • Dinner and overnight stay in a riad a few km away from Taroudannt for more tranquility. Enjoy the beautiful swimming pool in the lovely flowery garden and the open air jacuzzi on the terrace.

Day 6: Taroudannt - Agadir

  • Before getting to the Atlantic coast we will explore the High Atlas foothills. High limestone landscapes dotted with lush vegetation definately merits it's charming name « valley of paradise ». Villages with stone houses and flat roofs built into the rock walls follow. If you enjoy walking, a nice stroll will take you to natural swimming pools. Don't miss an opportunity to swim in this splendid landscape!
