Our day trip to the Atlas Mountians from Marrakech is the best opportunity to get out of the bustling Marrakech and enjoy the wild nature Agafay desert and Toubkal National Park have to offer. You will seize the opportunity to meet the Berbers to explore their culture and lifestyle. This day trip to the Atlas Mountains has been admired by so many of our guests thanks to the exclusive activities offered throughout the day, and they are suitable for every member of your family of group of friends.
After meeting your 4x4 driver / guide at your hotel or riad, your day trip to the Atlas Mountains from Marrakech will start with a drive south of the city through the Haouz plains to Agafay desert.
From here, enjoy some off the beaten track drive to the lake of Lalla Takerkoust where you will stop to enjoy the view and take photos.
An optional 30 minutes camel ride will be your next stop at the slopes of the Atlas Mountains before you continue your drive through the mountainous tiny roads to Kik Plateau admiring the views of Berber villages scattered left and right.
Fadma is a generous Berber lady who was kind enough to host our guests for a tea ceremony at her humble mud brick house. She will bake home made bread for you as well, to dip into extra virgin olive oil.
From here we will carry on through rough terrains to Imlil village, where we will leave our 4x4 and enjoy an hour moderate hike to ‘’Armed’’, a tiny Berber village located at the heart of Toubkal National Park, famous for its splendid views of Toubkal Mountain, the highest peak of North Africa ( 4 167 m high ). There is a also a small cascade not to miss, and surely your local guide will show you the way there.
After a delicious Berber Tagine lunch served by a host family in ‘’Armed’’ Village, descend back to Imlil, and enjoy a smooth ride back to Marrakech through Tahennaout, the main town in the region, where the weekly market takes place every Tuesday.
Your Atlas Mountains day trip will come to an end around 16h00 with a drop off at your hotel or riad in Marrakech.
