We use a number of different kinds of accommodation for trekking depending on the type of trek and the time of year. Sometimes treks will use more than one kind of accommodation. We can also arrange accommodation before or after your trek in Imlil or Marrakech, just let us know when you book your trek.
All our accommodation in Imlil is either a local riad or a guest house with double/single en-suite rooms.
Guesthouses are usually found in the Berber villages and are run by local people, usually a family. They have showers, toilets and nice terraces. Another type of guesthouse is the riad, which is perhaps the type of housing most prominent in the popular imagination when thinking about living in Morocco. Riads are buildings with a central square in the middle and apartments looking down into the centre. Brahim and Mohamed have access to small riads with private rooms with private facilities.
Tents are used only in summer in the Atlas Mountains and are like private tents becuase every couple or single person can have his own tent. In the Desert we use them in winter.
The Mountain refuges in the region are all owned by CAF or by local Berber people. Mohamed and Brahim can book them all year round and they have a long and trusting relationship with the owners. They are laid out in a dormitory style with bunk beds and shared bathrooms.
