Trekking Day Trip to the Berber Village of Imlil & Toubkal National Park
You will be picked up from your hotel in Marrakech at 9 o’clock in the morning. From here it is a 1.5 hour drive to Imlil (1740 meters). In Imlil you start a walk with the guide to Aremd village (1900 meters). On the way you will be able to see traditional Berber villages and see the highest peak in the North of Africa, Jbel Toubkal (4167 meters). In winter Toubkal will be covered with snow and it will be a beautiful sight to see in the distance.
After about 1 – 1.5 hours you will go to a local guesthouse to have a wonderful lunch. From here you will have a beautiful view of the Mizane Valley. After lunch it will be a 30 minute walk back to Imlil.
Transfer back to Marrakech by the same route as you came to Imlil.

For Atlas Trekking you need to prepare as you would for walking in any mountain region; it can be warm and sunny during the day but the weather in the mountains can quickly change from sunshine to snow and cold winds (autumn through late spring). Please do not leave any rubbish behind you; carry out what you carry in.
Atlas Treks are tailored to match the season and your level of fitness. You have the choice of basing yourself in Berber Guesthouses, from where you can take daily walks, or you can Atlas Mule Trek for 2+ days. On mule treks you usually have the choice of staying in Berber Guesthouse/with families or wild camping in 2-person tents. In addition to regular packing, here is a Check List for Atlas Trekking:
