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.

    Due to shortage of horses due to covid we fully enjoyed a authentic 40 minute camel trek in the foothills of the Atlas mountains, had mint tea, then full lunch in a Berners-Lee village highbin the mountains then went for a short trek upto pretty waterfalls, as well as a stop ar a co-operative Argan oil small outlet , again with tea and honey. Got more than our monies worth.

    Me and my husband went on the Atlas Mountains guided hike, our guide Abdhul was very polite and welcoming and took us into his home for tea, he taught us a lot about the local culture and the scenary was beautiful. The complimentary lunch was very good, I would definitely recommend going on this if you ever visit Morocco to see the Imlil valley. We later went on a horse ride in the desert and our driver, also called Abdhul was also very good. He stopped a few times throughout so we could take pictures. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    The owner Mr Abrahim provided us the best customer service and ensure our outmost satisfaction regarding this tour. I had a wonderful time exploring in Imlil valley knowing the berber locals there, their life, their tradition and culture and amazed with the magnificent surroundings around the mountain eat lunch at a berber house see the beautiful falls and socialize with other locals. We end our day by a 45-minute camel ride with lots of free mint tea, lots of pictures taken by our guide Khale, he is also very kind and he takes us to the suppliers market where everything is so cheap we are so lucky that we able to go there since it's only open every tuesday overall my experience with this tour company is such a great time will come back for more!
