Few sightseeing experiences are as pleasurable as discovery on foot, with every step a connection between the visitor and the terrain. Forget long-distance glimpses of far-off monuments, or time spent on a tour bus in gridlocked traffic, walking takes you to sights that cars and buses inevitably miss. On this Imil Valley Full Day Excursion you have the freedom to venture off-beat to to explore curious trails and landmarks, stopping at whim to delve into woodlands or crumbling ruins that catch our eye. We will relish the cool mountain air and jaw-dropping bucolic views at around 5,900 ft above sea level. And every step will tread the land of ancient Berber footsteps and allows you to interact with a storied and scenic terrain with a Moroccan breeze in your hair

Tucked amongst walnut, cherry, and apple orchards and cascading waterfall-fed streams, Imlil Valley is backdropped by milky blue wispy skies. Small clusters of rustic sun-bleached adobe huts cling to the slopes while snow-dusted Mount Toubkal, North Africa’s highest peak, holds court high above a riddle of loose-stone precipitous mule tracks. The Imlil Valley Full Day Excursion will take you to the very heart of the Atlas Mountains where massive layers of rock, formed millions of years ago, lie in crumpled ridges and folds

Included Entrance to: Badi Palace, Bahia Palace, and Saadani Tombs
