Ourika Valley Excursion
Experience the beauty of the Ourika Valley first-hand on this one-day tour from Marrakech where you’ll be able to admire spectacular scenery and escape the bustle of the city for a day.
The Ourika Valley is the closest day trip to Marrakech, but this convenience is not the only thing that makes this place so special. Travel towards the Atlas Mountains through the beautiful grasslands that make up the landscape along with authentic Berber villages from the 16th and 17th centuries. If you take the tour on a Monday, you can also stop at the roadside souks.
See orchards of fruit trees, terraced fields and villages clinging to the hills. Marvel at the work of the Berbers, who hauled materials up the mountain slopes and built small houses and farm terraces in a hostile environment.
Continue through the palm-lined valley, following the Ourika River. Fruit trees, small villages, restaurants near the river and summer houses will keep you busy. You can go all the way to Setti Fatma to refresh yourself with the refreshing waters.
Feel how you cool off from the African heat with other residents of Marrakech who have made this place their favorite place to spend the weekend.
