Your guide will lead you through towering juniper forests, steadily through the foothills of the mountain range, up to scenic viewpoints over the Asni Valley and sprawling Al Haouz plains. Ride on to Rha Moulay Brahim, where you’ll drop off your horse. Continue on, via car, to Imlil for a sumptuous local lunch with a view of the highest peaks of the High Atlas Mountains.

    The owner Mr Abrahim provided us the best customer service and ensure our outmost satisfaction regarding this tour. I had a wonderful time exploring in Imlil valley knowing the berber locals there, their life, their tradition and culture and amazed with the magnificent surroundings around the mountain eat lunch at a berber house see the beautiful falls and socialize with other locals. We end our day by a 45-minute camel ride with lots of free mint tea, lots of pictures taken by our guide Khale, he is also very kind and he takes us to the suppliers market where everything is so cheap we are so lucky that we able to go there since it's only open every tuesday overall my experience with this tour company is such a great time will come back for more!

    This was a truly amazing day!You get so much more than you think. The hiking to the mountains was amazing, the food was incredible and the horse riding was such a unique experience and the animals looked so healthy and happy, which was important to us. Both the host and local guide that tool us through Atlas mountains were so nice, thoughtful and kind. Just be aware that it involves 2 hours of hiking so dress accordingly. Would highly recommend this activity to get away from the madness of Marrakech for a day.

    This was amazing! From start to finish everything was perfect! The horse riding was safe and a great experience as I’ve never done it before. We were offered mint tea at a stunning setting with table and chairs! We a had a delicious dinner overlooking the Atlas Mountains which was so surreal. Ibrahim took us on a 40 minute trek up the mountains which wasn’t too challenging. He told us loads of history and information about the village and people. Honestly it was a pleasure to meet Ibrahim, he was such a kind soul and he took care of my 7 yr old daughter! He made her laugh, showed her a trick and made sure she was safe. He clearly loves his job which is thrown through his enthusiasm. Please tip when you can, they do not get paid enough and they go out their way and help so much more than they need to. Everything was so organised and you get so much more than what you pay for! Thank you to all the lovely Berber folk and a special thanks to Ibrahim and Abdul (owner of the Mule).
