Tour Overview


A day in the foothills of the high atlas : around amizmiz (whole day)

Travelling south from Marrakech across the Marrakech plain to the rural settlement of Amizmiz takes approximately 1 hour. But once in Amizmiz, Marrakech feels like it could be a million miles away. In Amizmiz and its surroundings life is very traditional. Amizmiz is a rural market town with much everyday activity as well as added market day activity too once a week. An easy stroll around the settlement and into the surrounding rural landscapes shows the traditional farming methods still in use and the crops grown. .


Depart hotel in marrakech and travel to amizmiz.

​En route, visit the barage (dam) and reservoir of lalla takerkoust (water issues/water sustainability issues).

Arrive amizmiz around 10.30.

Take a walk in the surrounding countryside to see traditional farming activities and techniques in action.

Call in to a pottery village and see the potters at work (with the option of "having a go" too, of course).

​Take a relaxing picnic lunch (included) in a forest glade.

​Return to the market town of Amizmiz in mid afternoon; take time to walk around its central area to see the souks and shops, perhaps enjoying some mint tea as a refreshment.

Return to Marrakech and back to hotel by late afternoon.
