The Atlas Mountains stretch 2,500km across north-western Africa, spanning Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia and act as a natural barrier between the Mediterranean Sea and the Sahara Desert.

Located approximately 90 minutes’ drive south of Marrakech, Imlil is a small village in the foothills of the high Atlas Mountains, 1,800m above sea-level. There are good hikes from here that take in the beautiful scenery of the area including the Tiz N’ Tamatert Pass that ascends to 2,300m. Many of the walks will pass through traditional Berber villages where ancient terraced fields and growing techniques can be seen. Crops such as barley, corn, cherries and various vegetables are grown here as well as almond and walnuts.

The town is a good base for attempting the summit of Jebel Toubkal, the highest peak in Northern Africa.
