Day trip from Marrakech to Ourika Valley
Book this sightseeing day excursion from marrakech in private or with a shared group and enjoy the beauty of the Atlas mountains
The Ourika valley is the most accessible valley in the High Atlas from Marrakech, starting less than 45 minutes' drive from the city. It is famous for the 7 waterfalls at Setti Fatma village and the ski station of Oukaimeden at its head, and is a lush valley with green terraced fields beside the river that contrast strongly with the rocky valley sides of the foothills of the mountains.
Situated at around 1,200-1,500 metres it offers a pretty escape from the summer heat of Marrakech and it's the most suitable area for gentle hiking and trekking
Tnine Ourika, named after the local souk (market) in the valley held every Monday ("tnine" in Berber), in the middle of the valley has a saffran farm and an organic herb farm (jardin bio-aromatic), called the Nectarome. The lush valley and local village houses, built from bricks made from the local rich red soils, add to the beauty of the area...

The detailed Program of this excursion from Marrakech :
We leave Marrakesh around 09:00 in the morning; we drive toward the Atlas Mountains, many beautiful landscapes and Berber authentic (16th and 17th century) villages. First Stop to visit a tradition Moroccan house, to see how people live and how they cook… from the roof of the house you have a beautiful view on a 17th century village and on the valley. The Lady-owner of the house- makes a tea ceremony to show us how to make mint tea and after they serve us a kind of country breakfast (bread, butter, honey, olive oil and tea). After this we continue deeper in the valley; we stop for a 20 minutes Camel Ride. After the camel raid we drive until the end of the road, we leave the van and go hiking for two hours to see some water falls (cascades). We come back to the van; we drive half a way and stop for lunch in a nice restaurant having beautiful views on the valley. Lunch is composed of a variety of Moroccan specialities.
After Lunch we drive you back to Marrakech
