Hiking brings each of us back to the core of who we are. Standing bare bones, with nothing but what can be carried, we are free to explore our identities in relation to what surrounds us. It’s easy to get caught up in the narrative of what our role in this complicated society may be. That’s why there’s something so pure about the feeling of returning to the wild; to the serenity that reminds us why we do what we do. The best way to ease a busy mind is to allocate time for exploration. Nurturing self-discovery brings mental clarity, and what better way to do that than to take a walk outside in the Moroccan mountains?
Onshore Hiking was founded by the creators of Offshore Surf Morocco, to celebrate a shared love of retreating to nature. In the surrounding areas of Tamraght – Morocco, Onshore guides hikers through a silent world away from the hustle of our daily lives.
“When we walk, we walk. We don’t worry about the future, we don’t regret the past. We experience the present moment, the nature, the culture, the animals, the people.”
As Morocco’s coast continues to draw in new faces from all corners of the globe, the region’s booming tourism sector has lead to the expansion of industry without foundation. It’s important not to let these expansions overshadow North African history because the magic in this land is full of insights known only to those that were raised in this region. Onshore Hiking invites travellers to become a part of this inside perspective, where the interactive hiking experiences intertwine cultural values with playful banter in a way that is truly novel.
Our tours are designed to share local knowledge, traditions, and stories while leading hikers through an epic adventure off the beaten path. Our guide’s understanding of native plants, animals, and spiritual sights has been passed down through the generations. Not only do they know all sorts of useful tips about what can be used for medicine, or where to find prehistoric fossils, but they are is also close friends with many local families that can offer their own input on what the region means to them
Since the idea is to be able to share the experience with everyone, Onshore Hiking trips can be adapted to suit all levels. Choose a tranquil walk amidst Argan trees or a more challenging journey above the skyline. Hikes can be customised with varying durations, or all inclusive-packages that offer transportation, home-cooked traditional meals tailored to dietary preferences, accommodation at Offshore Surf Camp and local homestays during longer hiking trips.
