Itinerary Details

Upon your arrival at Marrakech, you will be welcomed at the airport by a Rahhalah representative, and you will be transferred to your hotel.
Enjoy the rest of the day, resting or exploring this exotic town at your own pace.

Accommodation: Rawabi Hotel, Marrakech HB or similar.

In the morning, you will explore on horseback the area around Marrakech, appreciating the distinct beauty of the countryside and observing the life of the locals. You will start from the palm groves, near the river Oued Tensift, and from there, your qualified guide will take you safely through the less-traveled paths of the region for an authentic experience, away from the touristic buzz of the Jemaa El-Fnaa Market. The activity is enjoyable for beginners and expert riders alike, regardless of age.

At the end of your ride, you will relax for a while with a cup of traditional Moroccan tea, before heading to Imlil, a small town on the mountain (90 km / a 1.5-hour drive).

Accommodation: Jardins de Toubkal, Imlil HB or similar.

After a hearty breakfast, you will set off for a hiking adventure on the Atlas Mountains. You will initially head southwest to traverse the Tamatert Valley until you reach the hamlet of Achelm, and, later, the Berber village of Aroumd (or Aremd, at an altitude of 1843m), passing by the hamlets of Taourirt, Targa, and Imoula. On the way, you will be able to admire the jagged Western High Atlas peaks, including Jbel Toubkal (the highest mountain in North Africa, 4,167m), and the awe-inspiring Aguelzim (3,547m), Aksouâl (3,847m) and Adrar Adj (3,122m) mountains.

You will stop at Aroumd to explore this singular village of the Assif Aït Mizane Valley, built seemingly house upon house on a large moraine spur overlooking ancient, irrigated, terraced fields of barley, corn and vegetables, surrounded by almond and walnut trees.

You will then continue for another 8kmto Sidi Chamharouch, a quaint, Berber village set beside a waterfall and small stream, its dwellings seemingly built somewhat chaotically one into another. The settlement is a known pilgrimage destination for devout Muslims, as it hosts a marabout shrine, believed to be a relic of a pre-Islamic, religious and naturalist cult (access to the shrine is forbidden to non-Muslims).

After a delicious picnic lunch with stunning views on Jbel Toubkal, you will head back to Imlil and, from there, you will return to Marrakech (90 km, a 1.5-hour drive), where you are expected to arrive late in the afternoon.

Trekking duration: 5-6 hours.
Accommodation: Rawabi Hotel, Marrakech HB or similar.

The beauties of Marrakech are so many that it can take a lifetime to discover them all. Today, it will be merely an introduction, as you visit the dramatic Almohades Koutoubia Minaret, the richly decorated Saadien Tombs, the Bahia Palace, and the labyrinth of the exotic souks. You will finish your exploration in the Djemâa el Fna Square (a UNESCO Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity), where one can admire multiple examples of the Moroccan heritage, including itinerant sellers of goods, snake charmers, water sellers, fortune tellers, public scribes, tumblers, nakkachat (women with syringes full of henna), soothsayers, gnaoua musicians, and storytellers.

After such an intense exploration, you deserve to relax and be pampered with a traditional,2-hour, full-body massage with Argan and essential oils.

Spend the rest of the day at leisure, perhaps sampling further the famous Moroccan cuisine.

You will also stop at the imposing Bab Boujloud gate, the ancient ramparts, the splendid fountain at Place Nejjarine, and the front entrance of the Royal Palace.
