Well-being and authenticity in the offing; for relaxation or trekking in the Atlas Mountains (Morocco)

The hammam

Our hammam probably doesn’t have much in common with the hammams you have encountered in Europe or the cities of Morocco. This is a traditional Berber hammam, i.e. an authentic bathroom where you can have a wash or shampoo. It is a hot room with a controllable temperature, where you can enjoy having a wash but also relax and have a natter. You can stay there as long as you want, like the women, who will happily spend several hours there.

You are of course advised to take advantage of this facility to “give your skin a going-over”! All you need is a horsehair glove, black soap, rhassoul clay …

The hammam is heated by a wood fire and on average needs to be preheated for 4 to 6 hours to reach the required temperature.

It’s an experience not to be missed and an opportunity to recharge your batteries after a good day’s hike or drive (trekking in Morocco, treks in Morocco).
