Full description

Explore the High Atlas Mountains on a full-day hiking excursion and discover several Berber villages and scenic landscapes. 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 2-3 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.

This trip was amazing! I fully recommend. The guide Ibrahim and driver Mohammed were so welcoming and attentive of us. We explored the Agafay desert with a camel ride, visited the female argan oil cooperative and then hiked for 1.5 hours up to a waterfall with beautiful scenic views. Then we had a delicious tagine overlooking the beautiful mountains.

In a small group of 5 people, our guide Ibrahim was able to introduce us to his homeland. The short hike (approx. 1.5 hours) covered a few meters in altitude, but it wasn't too strenuous due to the many short breaks. In addition to the delicious lunch, we also got a small breakfast. An all-round successful day, are very satisfied!

A very nice excursion with a very complete program, Mohammad our guide and Abdu our driver were very caring. The day begins with the discovery of the Agafay desert with a camel ride then the discovery of the villages of Imlil with a short 1 hour walk (well marked, without great difficulty), after having made a stop in a cooperative of argan oil on the way. The excursion ends with a typical Berber lunch in a village in Imlil. A very beautiful day away from the heat of Marrakech with a very complete program!
