The best way to see the beautiful surrounding countryside is by walking or cycling, and several companies and guides offer mountain-biking and trekking trips. Operators have booths west of Hôtel Salama.

Cycling

The palm-filled Aït Mansour Gorges, leading towards the bald expanses of the southern Anti Atlas, and the Pierres Bleues are great destinations. Several places rent out bikes of varying quality; expect to pay about Dh60/120 per day for a road/mountain bike with helmet, pump and puncture-repair kit.

Hammam

Tafraoute is a good place for an authentic hammam experience as some houses here still lack water. There are three in town; massages are available at the new hammam behind Auberge Les Amis, although the male-only old hammam, just behind the market, is more authentic.

Trekking & Climbing

Tafraoute and the Anti Atlas offer numerous climbing routes and trekking possibilities, though most of the walks are strenuous.
