What You Can Expect

Berber Trails 4WD Day Trip from Marrakech

Enjoy mint tea with the locals on your day trip from Marrakech

Following a morning pickup from your hotel in Marrakech, meet your guide and head out of the city by 4-wheel drive vehicle to begin your tour. Traveling through Morocco’s majestic countryside offers a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, and a rare glimpse into a more relaxed way of life in this magical part of the world.

Cruise off road in your 4x4 vehicle toward the soaring peaks and plummeting valleys of the Atlas mountains, covered in lush pastureland in summer and snow in winter. Travel the Berber trail (named after the indigenous people who live and work here) through the Ourika, Asni, Imlil and Tahannaout valleys, soaking up spectacular mountain views along the way. On route, see the smiling faces of happy locals living a lifestyle very different to Morocco’s city-folk and gain insight into an ancestral way of living which many thought had disappeared long ago.

Arrive first in the Berber village of Tahanaout and enjoy a guided visit of the mills. Sit down with the locals, and perhaps take a moment to gain insight into their way of life as you sip on a refreshing cup of traditional mint tea.

After waving a fond farewell to the villagers in Tahanaout, continue on to the village of Imlil in the Ourika Valley, where an appetizing lunch of local delicacies awaits (see sample menu below).

With hunger sated, hop back in your 4-wheel drive vehicle for the journey back to Marrakech where your off-road Berber trails driving tour will come to an end.


Sample Menu:
  • Moroccan salad
  • Berber omelette or couscous with chicken and mixed vegetables
  • Fruit and mint tea

There were 4 of us two adults and two teenage children. We all had a great day out, a long day but well worth it.
The trip goes at quite a pace but this is needed to cover everything in the day,So it is good to be in one of the lead cars as if your at the back you seem to play catch on things. The views were amazing and the heights you clime are something else, as well as the drops from the side of the road. The food was good at lunch, but i would take some water with you as its very hot and dusty.
great trip, well worth the money.

A brilliant trip to see some fantastic scenery and some lovely people.The mint tea in the Berber house is a real highlight and the lunch at Imil superb..Khalid was a great guide.There are lots of opportunities for photographs.The weather even at this height was warm even in February and we didnt really need the winter coats we brought.Also we were glad we brought bags of sweets as they were well received by the children and a better alternative to money as small currency was not easy to obtain.

This was an amazing tour. Taking us out of the city and into the mountains. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The visit to a local home for mint tea was very special, and the lunch at the foot of the highest mountain very picturesque. Our favourite tour in Marrakech.
