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