Description

Let me take you on a one-day hike to a Berber village in the Atlas Mountains where you’ll be able to immerse yourself in their culture for the day. The Berber people were actually some of the earliest inhabitants of Morocco and this is a unique opportunity to learn about their traditions.

We’ll pick you up from your hotel in Marrakech in the morning and drive to the Atlas Mountain village of Imlil. From there we’ll start our adventure with a hike into the High Altas. This is not a particularly difficult hike and we’ll reach our destination village in around one hour. You’ll get to take in beautiful mountain scenery along the way.

When we get to the village we’ll learn how traditional mint tea and bread is made. Then, we’ll enjoy a traditional lunch in a Berber home, this might be something like a delicious chicken Tajine or a couscous dish.

We’ll even squeeze in a stroll through fields of apples, peaches, cherries and apricots and walk through the national park. Then, at the end of the day will drop you back at your hotel in Marrakech.

This is a wonderful way to learn more about the Berber culture and combine it with a hike and some awesome scenery. Book your spot now!

While you’re in the area, you should check out my 2-ascent of Mount Toubkal for an awesome physical challenge.
