Your driver will wait for you at your accommodation (or preferred pick-up location) at 09:00 to begin the transfer to Imlil. On your way, you will pass by the city of Tahnaout where you can stop in an argan oil cooperative and learn how his wife turns the argan nut into many products based on argan oil for which Morocco is famous. . You will continue by Asni where, on Saturday, you can visit a souk and a traditional Berber market.

Once in Imlil, stop for a glass of mint tea and meet your guide before starting your tour of the area. Your guide will help you choose the length of your visit (you can choose between one and three hours) and then head to the largest and highest village in the Imlil Valley.

Your trip will take you through waterfalls and the hamlets of Ait Mizan, Targa and Imoula. You will stop at Tamatert and have the opportunity to admire the view of the old fields of barley, corn and vegetables in irrigated terraces, surrounded by cherry and walnut trees. Your guide will tell you interesting things and talk about Berber culture and heritage along the way. Go down to the village of Ait Souka and enjoy a traditional Moroccan meal in a Berber family guest house.

Once you are rested, you will start your journey back to the other side of the valley, to Taourirt, to meet your vehicle. Your return transfer will take you through the Moulay Brahim Gorge, where you will come to a main trail with streams and trails forking in all directions. Here you will have the opportunity to experience driving a camel. You will then continue your return trip to Marrakech, returning around 18 hours.
