"The varied landscape of Imlil and the High Atlas Mountains is marked by a prevailing silence and an overwhelming stillness; two luxuries rarely found in the vibrant medina of Marrakech."

Duration: 1 Day

The high Atlas village of Imlil is the gateway to the magnificent Jbel Toubkal, the highest peak and crowning wonder of the Atlas range and the tallest mountain in North Africa. The scenery is truly stunning and, at just over an hours drive from the Marrakech, it makes for the perfect day trip during your stay in the red city.

The excursion normally leaves at 09.00am, when your dedicated vehicle will collect you from a dedicated pick up point close to any of our luxury riads in the heart of the Marrakech Medina. From here you will drive from the Medina towards the Atlas Mountains. The Berbers call the Atlas range idraren draren, “The Mountains of Mountains”, and it is easy to see why. As you leave Marrakech, the omnipotent Atlas Mountains stand tall as an unmoving monument, dominating the skyline, stretching as far as the eye can see.

En route to Imlil, it is possible to stop off at Kasbah Tamadot, Richard Branson’s luxury retreat, and a traditional Berber village. Both stops offer stunning views of Imlil and the surrounding landscape and are highly recommended. Your driver can normally help you organise both of these visits, please let him and our riad staff know in advance if you are interested in visiting either Kasbah Tamadot, or the Berber village during your trip to Imlil.

Once you have arrived at the village of Imlil you will be met by your experienced local Berber guide and begin your trek to Aremd village (1900 meters). On route you will see traditional Berber villages, naturally flowing water and the highest peak in the North of Africa, Jbel Toubkal (4167 meters). Although the snow line usually sits above Imlil during all seasons, during the winter months Toubkal will be covered with snow and it will be a beautiful sight to see in the distance. The varied landscape itself is marked by a prevailing silence and an overwhelming stillness; two luxuries rarely found in the vibrant medina of Marrakech.

After about one and a half hours of hiking, you will reach a local guesthouse for a short break and a wonderful lunch. From here you will have a stunning panoramic view of the Mizane Valley. After lunch we will take a short a 30-minute walk back to Imlil, where a car will be waiting to transfer back to Marrakech.
