Day trip to the Ourika Valley
Experience the beauty of the Ourika Valley up close on this scenic full-day tour from Marrakech, and escape the hustle and bustle of the city for the day. The Ourika Valley is the closest day trip to Marrakech, but it's not just its convenience that makes it special.
Take the Atlas Road and drive through stunning landscapes of lush green meadows and authentic 16th and 17th century Berber villages. If you choose to do this tour on a Monday, you'll even have the chance to stop at a roadside souk. Explore the orchards, vegetable terraces and hilltop villages. You will be amazed by the fruits of the Berber labour that had to climb the hills with the materials needed to build these small villages and who worked to create the terraces in a very difficult environment. Continue your journey through the valley of the palm trees following the Ourika, the local river. On the way you will see many fruit trees, tiny villages, the river lined with a few restaurants and the holiday homes of some fortunate people. Then head to Setti Fatma for a refreshing moment.
Feel the water lash your face and enjoy this moment away from the scorching African heat. Meet some of the genuine Marrakech locals who have made this stunning place their favourite weekend destination.
