Berber Lands And
Atlas Mountains Day
Trips

Explore the Atlas Mountains and spend the day with the Berbers with our Morocco day trips.

Most of the people living in the traditional villages of the Atlas Mountains are original settlers of Berber descent.

Our Morocco day trip from Marrakech allow you to discover the traditional Berber lifestyle as it has been for hundreds of years. You can explore the farmers’ markets with their abundance of organic vegetables, fruits, and other goods, as well as live animals. All sorts of more modern services are available, including open air hairdressers and even a dentist!

We’ll drive through villages and stop wherever you want along the way. You’ll sample mint tea, see the daily life of the tradition Berbers, and have lunch in a Berber house in a village overlooking the Atlas Mountains. These lunches are generally voted the best lunch of their entire stay by many of our customers, so it’s worth the experience!

The women’s argan oil cooperatives, which promote genuine argan oil from individual local sellers, are not to be missed. The argan nut is endemic to Morocco and Moroccans have long known about the wonderful benefits of the oil extracted from this nut for everyday use either in cooking or cosmetics. The cooperative groups benefit local sellers, by helping pay for their children’s education. Don’t be fooled by the low-quality argan oil on the market — this is where you’ll find the real deal.

We also encourage you to bring any small spare clothes items such as gloves, hats, socks, shoes, and treats that you can distribute yourself to the children once you travel with us. Not only are you making a contribution to this historical and traditional way of life, but the children really do love getting gifts so expect to see lots of happy faces!
