About The Amezmiz Valley

Less than an hour from Marrakech, Amezmiz village and plain offers varied and relatively low level walking. It is an ideal introduction to the Atlas mountains and the Berber culture and way of life.

The highest point of the trek is 2200m and there are stunning views throughout the trek as we follow the Amezmiz valley and climb up through typical Berber villages with terraced fields of cereals, potatoes and orchards of olives, cherries and walnuts.

This trek is highly recommended for those who want to experience the beauty of the Atlas, Berber villages and people, without the demanding walking of most of our treks.
A typical day involves about 5 hours walking, with time for a leisurely picnic lunch, before arriving at our overnight stop with time to explore and relax.
