On this exciting day trip, we travel 213 km by 4WD vehicle on an off-beat Atlas circuit of scenic contrasts. We include a drive across the barren ‘Marrakech desert’ of Agafay with a wonderful backdrop of High Atlas peaks, a visit to Lake Takerkhoust and then a scenic drive on a remote mountain road to the Azzaden Valley via Amizmiz.

After a tasty traditional Moroccan lunch at Kasbah Africa - Atlas Nature Retreat, we have time to explore a Berber village on foot, swim, relax and enjoy unrivalled views of the High Atlas Mountains. 

Finally, we make our way back to Marrakech across a dramatic route which links the market town of Asni with the Ourika Valley. Views of North Africa’s highest peak, Jebel Toubkal (4,167m) are unsurpassed on a clear day.
