Marrakech - Ourika Valley
Our Private Marrakech day trip to Ourika valley Located at approximately 65 km south from Marrakech, beneath the Atlas Mountains, Ourika Valley offers an amazing image of contrasting landscapes, from waterfalls to lush terraces and olive, almond or apple groves tended by local Berber people. The valley is also famous for the highest ski resort in Africa, Oukaimeden, located at an altitude of 3200 m. It is highly popular with both foreign tourists and Moroccan ski enthusiasts. Oukaimden is also a hikers’ starting point for the Ourika Valley, Asni, and the ascent of Toubkal. Before reaching the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, you will see areas with spiky cactuses and eucalyptus trees. After driving across the Haouz plain, you will notice a change in landscapes as they become progressively greener. This is the sign that you have entered in the Ourika Valley. On the way to your destination, you will see traditional Berber villages and the majestically Ourika Kasbahs that reign over the valley. Our first stop will take place at a traditional Moroccan house, where you will have the opportunity to experience the traditions and habits of Moroccan people in the countryside region and you will have a taste of Berber cuisine. The owner of the house will make a demonstration of a tea ceremony where you will enjoy the perfect combination between the taste of mint tea and bread, olive oil, butter, and honey. What is more, from the rooftop of the house you can admire the stunning beauty of the village and of the valley. We continue our road further down the valley, where we stop for a 20 minutes camel ride (not included in the price of the trip), followed by our final destination point, located at approximately 1500 meters altitude, the village of Setti Fatma. From this point, you will go on a 2 hours trekking (to the location and back) to a unique scenery formed by seven cascades. Setti Fatma is the center of tourism in this valley and also the site for an annual August event that draws in a considerable amount of visitors, called the four-day moussem, or festival. A well-deserved lunch will follow this activity, after a short drive from the hike, where you will enjoy traditional Moroccan food while admiring the unique scenery of the valley. Afterward, we will drive back to Marrakech where we will conclude a trip to remember.
