We opted for the half day family rafting trip to get an introduction in to rafting and ended up seeing one of Morocco's hidden gems.
The drive up from Lac Oudane may seem like a bit of a chore on google maps but you'll be greeted by an astonishingly beautiful route up in to the high atlas on a very good road. Beyond the village of Tilligoute you'll find the wonderful git where Berber Rafting now base their trips from, up a dirt road that only heightens the sense of adventure. We were met by Yann and Fab who were excellent hosts, ploughing us full of fresh Moroccan cuisine for the day ahead. Yann and Fab have a great rapport and clearly love the job they do so well. Yann is a seriously experienced river guide and made sure everything was ship shape. We left from the git under the shadow of la cathedral rock and made our way down through some very fun grade 2/3 rapids in an ice cold snow melt river. The Alhansal cuts deep into the mountains meaning you raft through a fantastic canyon with +100m cliffs towering overhead. All the while Yann diligently points out the many sights to be seen. You'll end up at the tiny village of Tilligoute around lunch time where you can then speed back to the git by car to shower and feast on more wonderful food or head on home. We really didn't want to leave. The place in itself is magical and having the added delights of rafting through it just makes it unforgettable. We will be back for a longer trip! If you're looking at this versus the Ourika for rafting in Morocco it's a no brained. Do not be put off by the drive, as that's a highlight in itself.
