Full description

Explore the High Atlas Mountains on a full-day excursion and discover several Berber villages and scenic landscapes. Enjoy a 2 to 3-hour hike, ride a camel along picturesque trails, and enjoy a traditional lunch in a Berber household with local mint tea.

Depart Marrakech in the morning and drive to the Moulay Brahim Gorges. Arrive at the main trailhead and experience the dramatic scenery on a camel ride. Hop back aboard the vehicle and pass Berber villages on your way through the Imlil Valley. 

Arrive at the village of Imlil where a local will welcome you with a glass of mint tea. Hike for hours to Armed, the highest and largest village in the Imlil Valley. Go by the hamlets of Ait Mizan, Targa, and Imoula on your hike to the Berber village of Ait Souka.

Stop on the way at Tamatert, and take in sweeping views of ancient irrigation terraces for barley, corn, and vegetables. Admire cherry orchards and walnut trees before you reach the home of a Berber family in Ait Souka.

Sip on a refreshing mint tea while savoring a traditional lunch in the home of a Berber family. Return by going down the other side of the valley through Taourirt and ride the van back to Marrakech at the end of the tour.

Ismael is the best Tour guide ever!! Not only was he kind, funny and very easygoing, but super cultured with incredible historic and religious background. His impecable english allowed our group to fully dive into the berber culture and learn all about the places we visited. He brought us to a great Argan oil cooperative where, few view points, numerous villages and an amazing berber guest house where we had lunch in front of the Atlas. We visited a waterfall and had a lovely trekking experience. In summary, super recommended adventure and if you get the chance to have Ismael, I am certain you will make the most of it. Being vegetarian, the Camel ride did not excite me much,m at the beginning, but since the camels were healthy and the walk was very short with an Incredible guide too (Mohamed) it was in the end very nice too. We had great tea and food at multiple locations and our driver was very cautious and made everyone feel very safe. Go and try this! Ismael won’t disappoint!! :)

Amazing value. Our full day trip was amazing and the drive to Atlas Mountains did not feel long since there were some incredible stops along the way including camel rides in a beautiful scenic area, stops to take pics and an amazing lunch on a terrace surrounded in nature. We learned much about the berber culture and visited several villages, including one with a waterfall. Our driver was careful and safe. Our guide Youssef grew up in the Atlas Mountains himself and was really knowledgeable, patient and informative. Highly recommend this tour. Best one we did from Marrakech.
