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.

    This was a truly amazing day!You get so much more than you think. The hiking to the mountains was amazing, the food was incredible and the horse riding was such a unique experience and the animals looked so healthy and happy, which was important to us. Both the host and local guide that tool us through Atlas mountains were so nice, thoughtful and kind. Just be aware that it involves 2 hours of hiking so dress accordingly. Would highly recommend this activity to get away from the madness of Marrakech for a day.

    This was amazing! From start to finish everything was perfect! The horse riding was safe and a great experience as I’ve never done it before. We were offered mint tea at a stunning setting with table and chairs! We a had a delicious dinner overlooking the Atlas Mountains which was so surreal. Ibrahim took us on a 40 minute trek up the mountains which wasn’t too challenging. He told us loads of history and information about the village and people. Honestly it was a pleasure to meet Ibrahim, he was such a kind soul and he took care of my 7 yr old daughter! He made her laugh, showed her a trick and made sure she was safe. He clearly loves his job which is thrown through his enthusiasm. Please tip when you can, they do not get paid enough and they go out their way and help so much more than they need to. Everything was so organised and you get so much more than what you pay for! Thank you to all the lovely Berber folk and a special thanks to Ibrahim and Abdul (owner of the Mule).

    Fabulous trip! We travelled with 2 young children and nothing was too much trouble. Our mountain guide Rashid was so passionate about his village. We really enjoyed his insight and even got to meet his sister! He took us all around the village then to a little waterfall. Lunch was delicious and water was also included with it. The horse riding was in a lovely location and again the men taking us on the trail were very patient with 4 beginners. Our driver was on time, very friendly and the minibus was clean and safe.
