Imlil, High Atlas

toubkalAlso highly recommended is a trip to the high Atlas village of Imlil, gateway to the magnificent Jbel Toubkal crowning wonder of the Atlas range and the tallest mountain in North Africa. Please note that even in winter the snow line is normally above Imlil.

The scenery is truly stunning and remarkably accessible from Marrakech at around an hour and a quarters drive. The excursion normally leaves at 09.00 and you can expect to be back in Marrakech at 16.00

Imlil has a number of authentic and great value restaurants (lunch is not included).


There are also two internationally renowned hotels either of which make excellent lunch stops. Richard Bransons Kasbah Tamadot is on the route and the stunning Kasbah Toubkal dominates the skyline above the village of Imlil when you arrive. Your driver can normally help with a reservation for the restaurant of your choice though this is not guaranteed at the Kasbahs which are sometimes let for exclusive use.

The normal departure time is 8.00 am and you can expect to be back in Marrakech at 18.30
