Day Trip to the Atlas Mountains - 1 Day

The beautiful village of Imlil is in the heart of the Atlas Mountains at the base of the highest peak in North Africa in Mount Toubkal National Park. The terrain that surrounds this peaceful village is a rich contrast from that of the country’s lowlands. Here, pink houses are spaced unevenly through the village with numerous trees – mostly walnut – interspersed around them.

This trip is for 1 day from Marrakech and back to Marrakech and you will have option to extend your holiday in the Atlas Mountains as long as you want.

Pre-Trek Briefing:
Your journey will take you past waterfalls and the hamlets of Ait Mizan, Targa and Imoula. You will stop off in Tamatert and have the opportunity to take in the views of ancient irrigated terraced fields of barley, corn, and vegetables, surrounded by cherry and walnut trees. Your guide will point out things of interest and talk to you about the Berber culture and heritage along the way. You will have the opportunity to have mint tea with a Berber family as you come down through the village of Ait Souka and you will then enjoy a traditional Moroccan meal in a Berber family guest house.
