Weekend Marrakech and High Atlas

“Travel is about that gorgeous feeling of standing on the edge of the unknown...feel the fear and do it anyway.”

Karima Powell

This is one of our exclusive 3 Day Tours from Marrakech

This 3 Day weekend option starts in Marrakesh and offers the traveller an insight into life in both Marrakech and the cultural rich mountains of the High Atlas.

Day 1; Friday. Arrival in Marrakech Airport. Transfer to your accommodation with the rest of the day free to explore and have dinner in the UNESCO Jemaa el Fna Square. Overnight in a riad in the medina with breakfast.

Day 2; Saturday. We leave the busyness of the city and drive out towards the mountains. First stop is in Lalla Takerkouste for a panoramic view across to the Agafay Desert and Lake. We cross the Kik Plateau and descend through Moulay Brahim to the market town of Asni. Saturday is Souk Day in Asni and we will take you for a walk through this colourful market to catch a glimpse of local life. We drive up the Imlil Valley where you will stop for a glass of mint tea near Imlil before the small hike to the village of Mzik for lunch. Mohamed has an amazing location for clients to enjoy ihomecooked Amazigh food and enjoy the views. Rested and well fed, we walk to Imlil, or if you would like a longer walk; we can go to Aremd and take the higher trails. Our guesthouse accommodation is in the village of Tamatert, so it isn´t very far, it does have options on how to reach it depending on how active you are. In the evening, dinner will be cooked by the family and a group of musicians will arrive to entertain you with traditional tunes and songs. Don´t forget to check out the night sky and the sunrise in the morning if you are up in time.
