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.

Ibrahim was so lovely we had a really nice time in the mountains. I wouldn't say it was a very challenging hike, if that is what you are after but he scenery is lovely and lunch was included and delicious in the berber village. I could do without the argan oil tours (every excursion from marrakech takes you to one of these places which is fine but after 3 it's enough!). The agafay desert and dromaderie ride was hilarious, don't expect an authentic experience, it is a tourist activity no doubt but the guys there were lovely and I'm still glad we did it, our photos have kept us giggling for a few days. This was the best tour we did on our stay so would recommend for sure.

A very rewarding day. We were accompanied by attentive and very kind guides. Thanks again to Mohammed who guided us during the hike: it was perfect! Very good meal with the locals, not to mention the beautiful stopping spots throughout the day: thank you Abdoul and Ibrahim! We ended the day with a camel ride at the top. Just remember to check the weather in the mountains before the hike because the temperatures are a little cooler than in Marrakech itself
