Itinerary
Depart your Marrakech hotel by air-conditioned vehicle and travel south into the High Atlas Mountains to Imlil, a Berber village that’s the last hiking stop below Mt. Toubkal.

Follow twisting roads past lush valleys and terraced fields, and visit a women’s argan oil co-operative in the village of Tahnouat. Watch the workers making argan oil products and then ascend further to the village of Asni. If it’s a Saturday, stop to browse Asni’s traditional Berber market before continuing higher to Imlil, stopping for photos on route.

On arrival, enjoy a tea or coffee, and meet a local guide for your 2- to 3-hour trek. Walk through Berber hamlets, walnut orchards, and terraced fields; admire waterfalls and spectacular mountain panoramas; and hear about Berber culture and places of interest from your guide.

Break for a traditional Berber lunch and then continue to another Berber village, where, if possible on the day, you'll visit a private family home for some refreshing mint tea or coffee with biscuits.

After leaving Imlil in the late afternoon, enjoy an optional camel ride by the River Moulay Ibrahim before finishing your tour with a drop-off at your Marrakech hotel.
