3 Days Trekking Trip in the Atlas Mountains


The Atlas Mountain is always generous to its guests, offering them the best treks under the snow-capped peaks of its highest Mountains.  We offer you an Ourika to Imlil 3 days trekking in the Atlas Mountains, in which we will conquer the secrets of mountains and valleys of the high Atlas. Ourika Valley trekking to Imlil is a perfect get-away vacation from the hectic life-style of Marrakech, as it is only a 90 minute drive from Marrakech to the town Imlil, where every trekking program kicks-off. 

Ourika to Imlil 3 days trekking in the Atlas Mountains is a wonderful multi-day trip to experience the wilderness of the high Atlas and the Berber culture. You will hike through amazing trek routes across the valleys of the high Atlas Mountains while admiring panoramic views of the Toubkal national park.

We designed our treks to suit those whose primary objective is enjoying in the first place, hence, our itinerary is light (typically 5-6 hours hike per day max). We also avoid tough passes and we usually stay under 3000m.  After the Ourika Valley trekking to Imlil, you will feel nature’s peace flowing into your heart and the wilderness will lead you to self-discovery.
