This marvelous trek starts in the small town of Taliouine, where we are based, and takes place in a lively and picturesque mountainous area. It's our secret garden ! For your hiking pleasure : varied landscapes, the ascension of Siroua (3305m) with its breathtaking view of the Atlas mountains in the Sahara. For your traveling pleasure : the rich heritage of the region and the wonderful people you will meet along the way. The Siroua is a small volcanic region dotted with small villages and terraced slopes. The local gold is saffran, which adds flavor each night to your dinner tajine. Growing saffron has kept the region vibrant. At the beginning of spring, almond trees in bloom cover the valley floor and later, the summer pastures and summits shimmer in the evening light. October is the harvest season, not to be missed. The Saffron Festival happens every year in Taliouine at the end of October.
