Overview

Experience the age-old Berber way of life in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains on this full-day trip from Marrakesh. Traveling by 4x4, discover the close-knit culture of the Berbers—Morocco’s indigenous, nomadic peoples—as you explore the Atlas’ foothills. Follow ancient Berber trails through valleys; pass rushing rivers, orchards, and hillside Berber settlements; soak up epic mountain views, and visit the village of Tahanaout to see its grain mills and sip soothing mint tea with the locals. Finish with a traditional Berber lunch at a local village before returning to Marrakesh.
  • Full-day Berber trails 4-wheel drive tour from Marrakesh
  • Explore the vast, open valleys of Morocco’s Atlas mountain range by 4-wheel drive vehicle
  • Travel the Berber trail through the Ourika, Asni, and Tahannaout valleys
  • Sip mint tea with the locals in the village of Tahanaout
  • Enjoy a traditional lunch of Moroccan staples
  • Gain insight into a rural way of life outside the big city
  • Tour includes round-trip travel from your Marrakesh hotel
Begin your full-day tour with a pickup from your Marrakesh hotel and climb aboard your comfortable, air-conditioned 4x4 for your journey into the Atlas Mountains.

Sit back and enjoy the views as your guide drives you out of Marrakesh into rural Morocco. Glimpse the rustic villages that sprinkle the rugged landscapes, and soak up the sight of the Atlas mountains as you venture into the foothills.

Follow the winding roads through the hills, where the valley slopes are coated with snow in winter and pastures grazed by sheep in summer. Trace the ancient trails of the Berbers the indigenous peoples of Morocco—along the palm-dotted Ourika, Asni, and Tahanaout valleys, passing rivers, fruit orchards, and timeless Berber villages that cling to the hillsides.

En route, see villagers at work in their smallholdings and learn about their slower, age-old way of life far from the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh.

Pull up in the village of Tahanaout and experience the simple traditions that characterize the Berber lands. Visit the wooden mills that are still used to grind grain, and chat to some of the hospitable, smiling locals over a refreshing glass of mint tea.

Continue into the Ourika Valley, passing rushing streams, olive groves, and mud and stone Berber settlements. Stop at a village and visit a local restaurant for a delicious lunch of Berber staples such as couscous with chicken. See the Itinerary for a sample menu.

Lastly, hop back in your 4x4 and return to Marrakesh where your Berber trails tour finishes at the original starting point.

Don't know why we were in a 4x4, we didn't leave the roads. The scenery was fantastic and the driver and guide knowledgable and good fun but It was a well travelled tourist route with the inevitable retail opportunities. The visit to a Berber family to take tea was a high point.

Please avoid, first in terms of sites and scenery you would be better off doing ouarzazate and Ait Benhaddou tour, second we were conned by our guide into buying overpriced argan oil from a women cooperative (guide recommended and stopped midway to this shop) they refused to give a receipt as well.

A really fun day, well worth the money. I would have liked to have been longer at the lunch stop to explore the village a bit and do some shopping, but they chooffed us off rather quickly directly after lunch. That was the only shame as the village looked interesting.

An amazing experience with an excellent guide and very good driver. Everything was very well organised from pick up at hotel to our return. We didn't realise that this part of the Atlas Mountains , with its three valleys would be so green and wooded.Spectacular scenery. We learnt a lot about the Berber people and it was good to visit a Berber House and meet the family. The lunch provided before we headed home was very tasty! We were in a small convoy of 4X4s but this didn't detract from the day's enjoyment.
