Departure by car (with AC) from Marrakech by 8:30 AM for a scenic 2-hour drive south up the Moulay Brahim Gorges. You can visit Asni weekly market which is held every Saturday, and venture further to Imlil (1740m), set in the upper-level foothills of the Western High Atlas Mountains. The main trailhead with streams and paths branching out in all directions Imlil is famous for its a fantastic range of seasonal activities and quaint mountain town charm. Here we shall leave our vehicle to take a welcome glass of mint tea in the village and meet your local guide prior to setting out for a 4km excursion. We’ll head south to the Berber village of Aroumd (Aremd) (1843m), passing the small towns of Ait Souka, Targa, and Imoula you’ll get a prime view of the Western High Atlas peaks of the Toubkal Massif before us – Jbels Aguelzim (3547m), Aksouâl (3847m) and the Adrar Adj (3122m). We shall stop at Aroumd to visit the village, built seemingly house upon house on a large hillside overlooking ancient irrigated terraced fields of barley, corn, and vegetables and surrounded by almond and walnut trees. We then carry on for another half an hour to get to our lunch wish will be served among a Berber family in the village of Achayn prior to setting off back down the other side of the valley back to Imlil and our return trip to Marrakech.

    What an amazing day we had! Our guide houssain is a very good guide, super friendly, he picked us up on time and explained a lot of interesting things about Morrocco. It was great to see the countryside out of the busy streets of Marrakech. Lunch was delicious with a stunning view. It was a great experience. Highly recommended!

    Amazing Experience
    The driver (JAMAL) collected us at the hotel promptly and we spent the entire day in a small group (4 tourists). He was very attentive and knowledgeable and made the trip interesting and fun. He knew the area and places we visited very well and was also happy to talk generally about life in Morocco and family etc. I really found him to be pleasant company throughout the day.
