Description

Immerse yourself in the stunning Ourika Valley with a full-day exploration departing from the bustling life of Marrakesh. This journey offers a serene escape, showcasing the untouched beauty just a short drive from the city. Nestled at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, Ourika Valley isn't just praised for its accessibility. The drive itself is a breathtaking experience, presenting verdant meadows and Berber villages dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries. On Mondays, there's even the chance to explore a traditional roadside souk. Witness the lush landscapes of fruit orchards, terraced vegetables, and villages precariously perched on hillside cliffs. Admire the Berbers' extraordinary efforts in building homes and cultivating land on steep slopes under challenging conditions. Follow the path along the valley, where palm trees and the Ourika River lead the way. Discover the area's rich flora, quaint villages, riverside eateries, and the luxurious summer residences of the affluent. The journey culminates in Setti Fatma, inviting you to experience the cool, refreshing waters. Join the locals of Marrakech in their favored weekend sanctuary, where the cool mist provides a welcome respite from the African warmth, offering a moment of tranquility and connection with nature.
