Full description
Start your day with pickup in Marrakesh at 9:00 AM. Your first stop is the Atlas Mountains. Visit a traditional Berber market on the way and an Argan oil co-op. From Marakkesh, you’ll arrive at Imlil. From there, you'll head to the highest and largest village in Imlil Valley, Armed. Either choose to walk to Armed, or you go by camel. See the waterfalls, as well as the hamlets of Ait Mizan, Targa, and Imoula.

To add some more glamor to your journey, your tour guide will stop at Tamatert, so that you can enjoy the amazing view of ancient irrigation fields that are surrounded by cherry and walnut trees. From Tamatert, pass through the Ait Souka village on the way to the next stop at Kik Plateau. At Ait Souka, you’ll meet a berber family, and you’ll be welcomed with a nice guest meal in their home. 

Your journey will also take you from the Kik Plateau to the edge of Lalla Takerkoust Lake. Take a tea break and see the gigantic dam that supplies Marrakesh with all its energy. Quad biking or jet skiing can also be locally arranged if you enjoy adrenaline-pumping activities. The last stop before you return to Marakkesh is the Agafay Desert. Through the stone desert, oasis, barren light brown plateaus, high hills, and Bedouin villages, you'll enjoy the beautiful sunset as your journey wraps up.

Great experience, would highly recommend! Our tour guide Nour was very friendly and took us around the Berber villages where we learned of their culture and witnessed their way of living. We also went to the waterfalls in Imlil where you’re guided up for a hike (make sure you wear the right clothing for this). The desert was not sandy but its background are the snowy atlas mountains which look amazing in pictures. The camel ride was the highlight of our trip, we got to wear the desert attire and took a ride around on the camels. Unfortunately because the weather was bad on the day we travelled, we weren’t able to see the sunset (so make sure to check the weather before you book). All in all, its a great tour if you’re in for a short trip in Marakesh.
