Full description
After morning pickup from your accommodation in Marrakech, set off on a roughly 1-hour long drive into the High Atlas Mountains, bound for the mountain town of Tahnaout. Arriving, you’ll be paired with a horse and provided with all the necessary equipment to set off on a journey through stunning mountain trails. Your guide will lead you through towering juniper forests, steadily through the foothills of the mountain range, up to scenic viewpoints over the Asni Valley and sprawling Al Haouz plains. Ride on to Rha Moulay Brahim, where you’ll drop off your horse. Continue on, via car, to Imlil for a sumptuous local lunch with a view of the highest peaks of the High Atlas Mountains. After lunch, you’ll head back down the mountain to your accommodation in Marrakech.

    Redwan was an excellent guide, he took very good care of the group and transmitted us the essence of living in the Atlas mountains. Redwan accommodated the requests we had (like riding horses instead of camels, and stopping to buy warmer socks - which I fogot.. he even bought the socks himself and didn't want the money back!). The trip is 100% worth it, and Redwan is truly an added value of the whole experience!

    It was not as advertised. The horse back ridding was chosen in preference to walking or hiking but when we arrived at the stables there was a choice of camel or horse. The ride was around a building on the opposite side of the road. The ground was very stoney, not suitable for horses and no helmets were provided; we fowent the invitation to go for a gallop, a fall would have caused serious if not catastrophic injury. We then stopped for a lovely breakfast of bread and oil at women's cooperative before heading onto the gateway of the Atlas mountains, we hiked 90 minutes to our very generous and delicious lunch. We are 60 and 66 years and the hike awakened us to how unfit we are. Overall whilst not the programme advertised we loved the experience and meeting our fellow travellers. Romerro was a great guide, e suring our safety and moderating the pace to suit us. Apogies if you wanted to go a bit quicker.The driver should concentrate more on the road than his . Overall 5 stars

An ideal getaway to get out of the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and find the tranquility of the forests. All accompanied by a more than pleasant driver!! Iris, Solene and Alice
