Exploring the Moroccan Atlas Mountains without a guide can mean missing out on Berber culture and scenic viewpoints. Yet many group tours follow rigid itineraries that don’t allow for spontaneity during the day. This private tour delivers in every way – with a local guide to organize logistics and allow interaction with Berber villagers, and the ability to customize your itinerary.
After a morning pickup from your accommodation in Marrakech, travel south towards the Atlas Mountains by air-conditioned minivan with your guide. Take in the views and, after stops at traditional villages and an argan oil cooperative, continue through lush valleys filled with orchards framed by rugged peaks.
Pause for Moroccan tea and cake on a panoramic terrace before venturing deep into the Imlil Valley. Arriving in the center of Imlil, your guide accompanies you on a hike to visit traditional Berber villages, soaking up the scenery and tranquility along the way. Here, savor a traditional Berber lunch, including either tagine (simmered stew) or couscous, and visit a Berber family home to learn about their way of life.
Continue to the Imnan Valley passing through the highest village in Morocco; the village of Tacheddirt and soak up the views of Mount Toukbal before returning to Marrakech.
Marrakech is a megalopolis of people, ideas and frenetic energy. The capital of tourism and red city in Morocco.
