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.

It was an amazing experience! I can’t say enough how much is this tour worth it! We go to a whole lot a of different places, we actually got to see snow and a desert in the same day. The food was delicious and our guide, Marwan, and our driver, Sadam were incredible. It’s a must when in Marrakech!

Youssef was really nice, helpful and informative. It was a bit anticlimactic for me as I was expecting to hike immediately and spend most of the day up in the mountains. We mostly did sightseeing and picture taking. The food at lunch was SUPERB! The Best Tagine chicken I’ve ever had and the walking going there was fun!

We spend a perfect day in Atlas mountains and Agafay desert. Our guide Youssef was very friendly, caring, expert of the region and a perfect photographer. We learned a lot about berbers culture and lifestyle. We liked hiking and we enjoyed local food. Best tanjine we trieded during our visit to Marrachesh. And with our driver Abdusalam we felt safe on roads and he was very good DJ as well! I hightly recomend this tour.
