Imlil day trek

Trekking Day Trip to the Berber Village of Imlil & Toubkal National Park

You will be picked up from your hotel in Marrakech after breakfast at 9 am in the morning . From here it is a 90-minute drive to Imlil (1740m). Once in Imlil, you start your walk with an official mountain guide to Aremd village (1960m). On the way you will be able to see traditional Berber villages and the highest peak in all of north Africa, Jbel Toubkal (4167m), ahead. In winter Toubkal will be covered with snow and it will be a beautiful sight in the distance.

After about 1 – 1.5 hours you will pass by a local guesthouse to enjoy a wonderful lunch. From here you will have a beautiful view across the Ait Mizane Valley. After lunch it will be a 30 minute walk back to Imlil.

We transfer back to Marrakech by the same route as we came to Imlil.

What to Bring

For trekking in the High Atlas Mountains you need to prepare as you would for walking in any mountain region; whereas it can be warm and sunny during the day, the weather can quickly change from sunshine to snow and cold winds, notably during the autumn and through to late spring.

Our Atlas day treks are tailored to match the season and your level of fitness. Please speak to us if you would like to undertake a longer trek lasting for two or more days. You would then have the choice of either basing yourself in a Berber guesthouse with a local family, from where you could take daily walks, or trek further afield with mules. On our mule treks you will usually have the choice of either staying in a Berber guesthouse or wild camping in a 2-person tent.

In addition to regular packing, here is a quick equipment check list for trekking in the Atlas Mountains:

  • Good walking boots and socks
  • Comfortable shoes/slippers for camp/guesthouse
  • Trekking pants
  • Lightweight waterproof over-trousers or rain-pants.

A full equipment list will be provided upon receipt of your booking.
