    Stop At: High Atlas Mountains, 40000 Morocco

    After picking you up from your accommodation or meeting you on an agreed point in Marrakech, we will take you on a unique adventure to discover and learn about the hidden secrets of Berber lifestyle and history. You will have the opportunity to visit an argan cooperative to witness how the local women turn an Argan Nut into oil (optional), whilst also enjoying a cup of fresh mint tea, peanut butter and local bread.

    We will drive deeper into Atlas valleys to reach our main destination in an altitude of 1800m. In Imlil valley, we will be happy to lead you for a scenic unique walk through the berber hamlets and walnut fields for about 2 hours (flexible) , swivelling through its villages and hidden trails, whilst appreciating the nature we will get to visit a small waterfall just before reaching the highest village of Armed.

    An irresistible 3 courses lunch cooked and served at our family home shouldn't be missed before we drive back to Marrakech through Asni valley with a 30 minutes Camel ride experience all within the vicinity of the Atlas Mountains.

    During this unforgettable experience, we will be pleased to share with you all our knowledge of Morocco’s Berber local culture, lifestyles, and the most beautiful landscapes that this region has to offer.

    The Atlas Mountains have left customers feeling overwhelmed by its breathtaking sceneries, leading them to return! It’s a place like no other which you would not want to miss.

    On a Saturdays and Tuesdays, we will stop in Asni village or Tahanaout town and take you in a tour through the local weekly market , find your way through the crow of local berbers coming from all the surrounding villages for socialising, exchanging goods and animals and buying fresh vegetables, fruits and all their needs.

    Please note that the walk and the camel ride can be skipped if you like (we are very flexible)
