This trip is developed in an area that has not been discovered by tourism yet, the Middle Atlas region. For this reason the people and infrastructure of this area are not habituated to the impact of tourism and we want to keep it this way. There's a big commitment in this sense along this tour and all the people involved are highly aware of this, providing guidance to our travellers. The main activities that we do in this area, canyoning and trekking, are targeted to establish a specific relationship with the environment and the landscapes of the Middle Atlas. Through canyoning, we explore the peculiar waterfalls and rivers of the Azilah province and through trekking we explore its forests. Guidance is provided alongside these activities to help preserve the environment and reduce as much as possible the impact of our visits, especially when it comes to canyoning, as there's an unavoidable impact on the canyons, due to the use of ropes and anchoring systems. For example here we promote and choose to use as much as possible natural anchoring such as trees, rather than perforating the rocks, as to reduce the impact of the activity.
As this tour passes by remote areas that are not used to tourism we try to reduce the impact of our visits to the minimum. The most important part of this tour regarding communities is the previous research done by which we have carefully selected the families and collaborators we work with. We don't stay in the most luxurious hotels, or the ones with highest comfort. We stay in small family-owned places which are trying to develop and at the same time provide the real authenticity and hospitality that characterises this country. For example, in Ouzoud we stay in a small Riad, which enjoys beautiful views of the waterfalls but is an rural side of the town. In La Cathedrale we stay in a local mountain gite, which is used only and occasionally by locals who go trekking in the area. And in Bin El Ouidane we stay in a family-owned campsite by the lake. By choosing these accommodations we contribute to develop a specific type of tourism in the area, more focused on small groups, the environment and nature activities than on mass tourism and we help preserving the authenticity and pureness of it.
