This tour takes you from Marrakech high into the Atlas Mountains to Imlil at the foot of Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa. During the climb up the mountain you will see an abundance of olive & eucalyptus trees, fruit orchards and cactus. The meandering road is carved into the side of the mountain creating a dramatic scene with exposed rock and red earth. Breath taking views are seen throughout the day with small houses precariously punched on cliff edges over looking beautiful valleys.
Enroute you can visit various Berber Villages, meet the local mountain people and experience the mint tea ceremony in a traditional Berber House. We visit a Womens Co-operative Argan Oil Workshop in Tahanaout where the extraction of the Argan oil from the Argan nut is still traditionally manufactured, the Berber Market in Asni (Saturdays only) and and the highest town in the Atlas Imlil (a great destination for Trekking).
Lunch can be enjoyed in Imlil at a local restaurant or the 150 year old restored hill top Kasbah Du Toubkal (Note: Access is via a 20 minute trek or 10 minute mule ride). Alternatively, Richard Bransons exclusive Mountain Retreat - Kasbah Tamadot is also a nearby option. Note: An advance reservation is required at both Kasbah Du Toubkal and Kasbah Tamadot.
