Full description

The adventure begins with pickup from your hotel in Marrakesh. Head south towards the vast Agafay Desert, admiring the changing landscape along the way as the city gives way to luscious greenery.

Arrive at the large village of Imlil located at the foot of the High Atlas Mountains, then pass through the incredible Kik Plateau.

Next, embark on a 30-minute camel ride and soak up views of the surrounding landscapes. After your ride, enjoy a relaxing tea break and learn about local Berber culture, as well as their traditions, history, and way of life.

Pass through several Berber villages on your way to the Amizmiz Valley, then arrive at Tinirt Village where you can have lunch at a traditional Berber house.

After lunch, continue the tour to the Great Plain of Haouz, passing through the village of Ouled Mataa which was originally inhabited by Bedouin Arab tribes from the desert.

The day ends with a tour of the Agafay Desert, where you can take incredible photos for your holiday album, and marvel at the rugged Moroccan landscape that surrounds you. After an unforgettable day, sit back and relax on the return journey to Marrakesh, arriving back at your accommodation.

    A experiência foi incrível. Tanto o motorista como o guia foram extraordinários. O itinerário foi bem selecionado, sendo possível conhecer um pouco a cultura local, passear por um mercado de população mais rural, conhecer como se vive na montanha e degustar a comida local (que estava deliciosa e a vista sobre a montanha fantástica). De realçar também as explicações do guia ao longo do percurso e o passeio de camelo.

    Amazing tour! 100 % recommended. Absolutely 11/10. You get to discover the Atlas Mountains, Berber culture and Agafay desert so well, all while enjoying a beautiful hiking route, delicious breakfast and lunch (included in the price) and a great camel ride. Thanks especially to our driver Elias and our local Berber guide Rashid, because with them we enjoyed our trip even more! We really recommend choosing them for this tour

    A really enjoyable trip to the Agafay desert and Atlas Mountains. Ibrahim was a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. It was lovely to be given mint tea and bread in the morning after a great camel ride, and the walk in the mountains was not too strenuous but definitely enough to work up an appetite for a lovely lunch. The only issue we had was the pickup, which we did not have a lot of communication about and arrived half an hour earlier than they had said. Otherwise a fantastic day.
