Tour Overview


amizmiz in the foothills of the high atlas

If you are looking for a single, most memorable “mountain day”, ATS can offer you the opportunity to discover the beauty and charm of the nearby High Atlas mountains on an easy hike.

At only just over an hour’s drive south from Marrakech, Amizmiz lies in the foothills of the High Atlas. The location offers stunning views out to snow capped peaks as well as having a surrounding rural landscape with much beauty, interest and intrigue.

ATS can introduce you not only to these stunning landscapes (some entirely natural, others the result of human activities) but can also enable communication with the local habitants. such encounters will allow you to know the cultural heritage, customs and the lifestyle of the Berbers, the “mountain people”.

The drive begins across the Marrakech Plain, where major irrigation schemes allow olive groves and fruit orchards to thrive. a stop at the Lalla Takerkoust barrage shows the source of this precious water.

On arrival in Amizmiz the gentle trekking begins. this can be either be through the small, bustling Berber town (especially lively on market day) or in the surrounding, fascinating, rural areas. This rural hike may, if you wish, include a visit to a potter’s village where the traditional hand turning of pots and tagines can be seen (and, if you dare, be attempted!). a look around a traditional Berber home is possible too; fascinating.
