Free Day in Ait Bougumez

Located in the central High Atlas Mountains east of Marrakech, Ait Bougmez Valley is unspoiled nature at its best! It's often compared to the majesty of the Himalayan Mountains, with lush orchards and green pastures surrounded by snow-capped mountain peaks. Additionally, it's quite different from the typical Moroccan imagery of barren beauty.

Enjoy exploring the valley's small towns, with their mud-brick houses scattered throughout the valley to enhance its idyllic atmosphere. You'll spend the day immersed in the heart of the valley of Ait Bougmez and its traditions in the village of Imelghas.

Itineraries with Free Day in Ait Bougumez

Unique Cultural Experiences in Morocco

Morocco's distinct and authentic culture (unchanged in many ways) is perhaps the primary reason to explore the country. You'll find traditional villages that still live today as they have through history. Cities like Casablanca and Chefchaouen lift the veil and let you see the way locals live day-to-day. Visit small towns and Berber villages in the mountains, peruse artisan collectives, and get off the beaten path to discover Morocco's incredible countryside.

This relaxed itinerary takes you on an off-the-beaten-path exploration of Morocco's culture and landscapes. Explore the bustle and history of Marrakech, then travel through the Atlas Mountains.
