What You Can Expect

Berber Trails 4WD Day Trip from Marrakech

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

Begin your full-day tour with a pickup from your Marrakech 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 Marrakech 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, Imlil and Tahanaout valleys, passing rivers, fruit orchards and timeless Berber villages that cling to the hillsides.
On 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 Marrakech.
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 the village of Imlil 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 Marrakech where your Berber trails tour finishes at the original starting point.

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.
