What you'll do

With us, you will find hidden paths and unpopulated beautiful nature, far away from mainstream tourism. Our hiking guide has grown up in the area and will lead you away from the famous tracks to remote and hidden gems in the mountains he has trekked for his whole life.

Not only does he know all sorts of useful tips about what can be used for medicine, or where to find prehistoric fossils, but he is also close friends with many local families that can offer their own input on what the region means to them.

The day hike experience will show you Paradise Valley through the eyes of a local, away from mass tourism. With transport (from Tamraght), a deliciously filling meal, water and snack, you are ready to navigate one of the most beautiful areas in the region.

This excursion is the perfect way to explore the area of paradise valley without meeting the crowds of tourists. During the hike we saw so many gorgeous landscapes and took a swim at the most beautiful mountain pool, where there were almost no other people except for some local children. The guide was really friendly and could answer all our questions about the area as well as morocco in general. We definitely would have never found these trails ourselves. The lunch at the local family’s house was very lovely, we felt welcome and got to experience the local culture on a new level. We also had the best tajine of our entire trip there. It is also worth noting that the communication with the hosts was quick and efficient, furthermore, when we needed to change the day of the trip due to sickness it was no problem. It should be taken into account though, that to complete the hike, you need to be in a good physical shape, as climbing the rocky mountains in the heat was not a walk in the park. Overall, I’d really recommend this experience if you want to get an authentic feel of the area and see some breathtaking views.

I was nice to hike around Paradise Valley off the beaten path with Mbarek! The Valley is beautiful and we took a route where we didn't see a single tourist on the way. We stopped at a local village to get some local good (tagine) and finally ended up near a water basin for a refreshing swim (and a nap). The scenery was absolutely beautiful and I enjoyed chatting with Mbarek along the way.

Ik en mijn vriend werden door een lokale gids meegenomen naar paradise valley. We hadden een prachtige wandeling buiten de toeristische gebieden. Halverwege de wandeling hebben we gelunched in een traditioneel berberdorp. Onze gids kon veel vertellen over de omgeving en heeft voor een onvergetelijke dag gezorgd.

Definitely the best day trip we did from Agadir. The hike covered varied landscapes and trails that would be very, very difficult to find without a guide that knows the area intimately. Lunch food was excellent (local family that dies side business as a sort of hiker rest stop - very authentic feel) and overall pacing of the hike with places to rest was good. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and how people lived in it so that brought more meaning to the places that we saw. Highly recommended!
