10-hour adventure tour to the High Atlas Mountains
Meet a driver at your accommodations in Marrakech for a 40-minute trip to the first stop of the day, where you’ll trade the car for your own quad bike. Rev the engine and tear through the desert on the 1.5-hour ride, taking in a rolling landscape of hills and valleys.
From there, continue into the mountains to a Berber home, the perfect place to get a glimpse of daily life in the High Atlas. Learn to prepare Berber mint tea, then sit down to a breakfast of bread, butter, honey, and olive oil.
Next, learn the swaying rhythm of traveling by camel on a 30-minute camel ride, moving through the landscape as locals have for thousands of years.
Even farther into the mountains you’ll find Setti Fatma village, the starting point for an hour-long hike to a trio of scenic waterfalls. Following your hike to the waterfalls, return to the Berber house for a traditional lunch.
This 10-hour tour concludes with return transfer to Marrakech by an alternate route, and drop-off at your hotel.

This was a great tour. Our guide...

This was a great tour. Our guide picked us up from our Riad and drove us out to the Atlas Mountains. We stopped at a Berber house for breakfast and mint tea, then we stopped and rode camels for about 20 minutes, the baby camel was adorable and gave us kisses. Then we drove on further, and stopped to hike up to some waterfalls. There were great views from the top. We did some shopping in the Berber village and had lunch by the river. After lunch we headed back toward Marrakech. We stopped to do some quad biking on the way, So Fun! It was a busy but relaxing day. Our guide was great and full of information about Morrocco. The tour is a bit pricy but worth it. It is a private tour, so it was just me, my friend, and our guide all day. I would definitely recommend this tour.
