Berber Life Experience in the High Atlas

Escape the heat of Marrakech and drive into the Imlil Village in the High Atlas Mountains. Imlil is a small thriving village, located in the heart of the Mezane Valley and overlooked by Mount Toubkal, North Africa's highest peak. Imlil is regarded as the center for much of the High Atlas trekking activities; it is the starting point for the ascent up to Mount Toubkal and also for many other mountain hikes. The village is surrounded by attractive orchards, and is within easy reach to some of Morocco's most scenic valleys and gorges.

This Imlil & High Atlas day trip will give you the option to ride a mule, or go on a hike and pass Berber villages, enjoying the stunning views of the countryside and High Atlas. Have a delicious traditional lunch in a Berber house, then take a short walk with your driver before driving back to Marrakech.
