About us

We are happy to share our passion and knowledge

tayyu hiking taghazout

Established by a Moroccan & French couple in 2017, Tayyu is a hiking tour agency operating around Agadir and Taghazout.

Mbarka has a big heart and tons of energy she could not spend it all on surfing, biking and socializing. She had to find something more! Steven moved to Agadir to work for an environmental NGO, and quickly felt in love with the region and its people. Thanks to their shared love of nature, and with much of their time spent hiking, Tayyu Hiking was born.

What is Tayyu ?

Tayyu, or the chameleon in Berber language, is a curious creature which pretty much sums up our adventure. Like the landscape in our hikes, this unique lizard changes colours in a mystifying way to blend in with its surroundings, but also as a response to temperature, mood and other emotions. Human behaviour, like the chameleon, is also adjusted according to the changing environment. Inspired by the eyes of chameleons and their ability to see two distinct views, we pay attention to what keeps our feet on the ground, while at the same time absorbing nature’s serenity and tranquility. Finally, chameleons don’t rush. They live at their own pace, a great lesson to our modern society where everyone is in such a hurry.

our values

ecology

Maximizing our positive impact on earth is our main goal. Reducing plastic consumption and planting more trees on the hiking trails are some of our simple ways to respect nature. You are more than welcome to add your touch.

consciousness

We live in a fast and hyper-connected world, and it highly affects our brain and consciousness. There is nothing better than a mindful walk in nature to slow down, clear our mind and boost physical and mental health

sharing

We are a cross cultural agency trying to improve cultural awareness. Through our hikes, you will discover more about Berbers, their landscape, and catch a glimpse of the local life.
In return, we make sure we respect villagers’ customs, and involve them in our adventure.
