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 for 1 hour to the Moulay Brahim Gorges. Arrive at the main trailhead with streams and paths branching out in all directions, and experience the dramatic scenery on a camel ride. Reboard the vehicle then continue into the Imlil Valley, passing many Berber villages along the way.  Leave the vehicle at Imlil to head into the village, where you will be welcomed with a glass of mint tea. After, set off on a trek for 2 to 3 hours to Armed, the highest and biggest village in the Imlil Valley. Hike to the Berber village of Ait Souka, passing the hamlets of Ait Mizan, Targa, and Imoula en route. Stop on the way at Tamatert, and take in the glorious views of ancient irrigated terraced fields of barley, corn, and vegetables surrounded by cherry and walnut trees. Continue for another 30 minutes to arrive at the home of a Berber family in Ait Souka, where you can enjoy another mint tea and lunch in the home of a Berber family. Return down the other side of the valley via Taourirt, and continue to Marrakech for your drop-off at the end of the tour.

The tour was really worth it, not only because of the impressive backdrop of the Atlas Mountains and the insight into the life of the people in the Berber villages, but also because of our driver Hassan and our guide Rachid Jellah, who are both very personable, speak perfect English and us could tell a lot about the country and the culture. We particularly enjoyed the authenticity and the little tourism. The "hike" was more of a mountainous walk with small stops and individual breaks could be made at any time. Absolute recommendation!

What a trip, from start to finish the driver and guides we’re excellent. We had Ibrahim as our English speaking guide and he was superb. He lives in the mountains and really knew every detail and answered every question that was thrown at him! He is a credit to the area and the tour operators are lucky to have him! Hassan

Aziz T was a great driver/guide. Very informative. He went the extra mile even stopped at a store for me to purchase a lamp! He picked fresh cherries for us to eat on the way for lunch. The lunch was amazing it came out sizzling! We felt safe and the trip was fun. The camel ride really made my trip. I wouldn’t call it a hike it was just over 2 miles at a slow pace of the group but the waterfall at the top was lovely.
