This is the favourite trip by far and allows you to get right into the mountains and see village life first hand. It is a fairly relaxing day but if you feel like walking off some of that haut cuisine, ask us to arrange an early start and you will be rewarded with greater views and legs that feel like they have been exercised. For this we include a guide to get you away from the tourist tat immediately around the Imlil village and have lunch in a Berber village overlooking the valley.
We also have an option to make it a proper mule trek which includes a “Berber gourmet picnic” lunch (adds £15 a head but worth it) and allows you to walk further and deeper in the mountains – just tell us how long you want to walk. Stunning scenery, a bit of light exercise and observing traditional Berber life in the many villages dotted around the hillside make this a good antidote to the hustle and bustle of the Medina. Also we recommend a mule or two if children are in the group.
Another tip is to ask your driver to stop at Kasbah Tamadot for tea on the way home.
