Itinerary of Berber Villages Family Trek

 Day 1: Marrakech, Atlas Mountains, and Amssakrou

We will be heading towards Atlas mountains and meeting with the mules on this day. This day will involve about 3 hours of walking. We walk to the Amssakrou River and spend the night in a Berber gite (around 1,500m).

Day 2 & 3: Amssakrou, Imnan Valley, Ikis, Tameguiste, and Tachdirt

These two days are used for exploring the villages of Amssakrou, Ikis, Tameguiste, and Tachdirt while walking along the Imnan valley. You will meet some natives and see how life is in the Berber villages—overnight in a local gite.

Day 4: Tachdirt, Tamaterte Pass, Imlil Valley, and Aremd

On day four, we will cross the Tamatert Pass (2279m) before dipping down into the Imlil valley (1750m) and spend the night at a local guesthouse in the village of Armed. This day will require around 5 hours of walking.

Day 5: Armed, Tizi Mzzik, and Assif N’Azadene

This part of the journey will have some of the most beautiful sights of the whole trip. We will head along the mule path and meet up with the Tizi Mzik at around 2,490m and catch a view of the snow-plastered Tazarat Plateau and the villages with hanging terrace gardens set into the side of the hills. After just 4 hours of traveling, we will end the day in Assif N’Azadene and rest for the next.

Day 6: Assif N’Azadene, Imi Oughlad, and Marrakech

On the last leg of the adventure, we head towards Imi Oughlade, and at this point, we will have to say farewell to the fantastic Azzadene Valley and the beautiful High Atlas mountains. Once we arrive in Imi Oughlad, private vehicles will take you and your party back to Marrakech. End of trek
