Marrakech – Ourika valley
( Day trip )
From: €180.00 ( price for two people )
Discover Berber villages and traditional rural life with this day tour to the Ourika Valley, famous for its waterfalls and lush vegetation, only one hour away from Marrakech.
Located in the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains, the Ourika Valley is an ideal day trip for nature lovers or whoever wants to take a break from the city.
As we leave Marrakech behind, the landscape becomes greener and a beautiful drive of about 50 kilometres will take you to this valley, with its olive groves, orchards, agricultural fields, amazing mountain scenery and of course the Ourika river.
We will drive through charming villages and you will have the opportunity to experience traditional Berber way of life as we stop at a local family where you will enjoy fresh mint tea and visit a Berber museum.
On Mondays only, it is also possible to visit a typical Berber market.
We will finally reach Setti Fatma, the last village accessible by road and the starting point for hiking trips in the Atlas Mountains.
Once here, you will be greeted by our local guide and you will enjoy a hike to the famous Ourika waterfalls. They are seven and our tour includes a hike to the first and second waterfall, which are accessible to most.
If you wish to continue you hike further, make sure you are wearing proper shoes and discuss this with your guide first.
You will finally enjoy an authentic Moroccan lunch on the banks of the river and after that we will drive back to Marrakech for an afternoon arrival.
Enjoy this tour at any time of the year and particularly in spring when cherry and almond trees are in bloom or during the summer months to take a break from the heat in Marrakech.
