Atlas mountains and Imlil day trip is one of the most spectacular day trips from Marrakech if you desire to get out of the city and delve in the authentic and rural side of Morocco. We will start our day trip to Imlil at 09am from Marrakech by a 4WD or minivan. We will head south, gaining altitude towards Tahnaout and Moulay Brahim Gorges. Furthermore, we will cross the Berber village of Asni, very popular for its weekly market every Saturday, which we can stop to visit if you happen to take this trip on a Saturday. We will then continue our route towards Imlil in a narrow paved road twirling in the middle of the trees, small water sources and perched houses. Once In Imlil, we will meet our local guide and the muleteers, after the introductions, you will be assisted to hope on the mules, settle in to enjoy a wonderful hike throughout the hills, fields and rocky pathways. The local house where you will have lunch is situated in Aroumd village (1900 m above sea level), with beautiful views and scenery from its terrace.
In warm days, you can enjoy your tea and lunch on the terrace to fully appreciate the vibrant scenery, in colder days, there is a dining saloon that is kept warm.
