Full description

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 services.

We had a lovely day on the trek with Mohammed in the Atlas Mountains. It was a beautiful experience and a great break from the chaos of Marrakech! The trip there was also very comfortable and our driver Hassan was great and made us feel very safe. We can really recommend doing this trip! It was a highlight of our trip to Morocco.

We simply had the best day! Ibrahim is the most kindhearted guide you can hope for, knowledgeable and easy going, thanks for everything!!! Abdel, the driver, is also super nice, very careful driving and he’ll always make sure to keep your belongings nice and safe in the van! Literally the experience was everything we were looking for, a genuine experience of Marrakech back country, delicious food in incredible sceneries. 5 stars from the beginning til the end. Thanks guys!!! Marine & Lilian

It was a wonderful day and full of many different experiences. The whole day was very well organised and everybody we dealt with were nice people. The walk through the mountain paths was relatively simple, though through some beautiful scenery. The camel ride is a little extra at the end of the trip - see it as a bonus.
