Description

Ourika Valley, at the foot hills of the High Atlas Mountains is only a 1H30 minutes south east of Marrakech. The valley offers a great escape from the heat of Marrakech for the locals during summer months. This group day trip to Ourika Valley from MArrakech is ideal for nature lovers and light trek into one of the small size waterfalls, or just relax and have a snack at one of the local cafés unted the shade of the walnut tress next to the stream. After a 30 minutes drive via the fertile Haouz Planes, you will reach Tnin Ouika center, where you will stop for a visit of the open air Berber weekly market. It is operated every day, but Mondays are much busier and lively. From here you will continue up to Setti Fatma. On the way, stop at a Berber house where you can share a cup of mint tea with the locals before you continue to Stti Fatma Berber village. Upon arrival, enjoy a guided light trek into the the water falls above the village (local guides available for hire). Return back to the village where you can have lunch (at leisure) at one of the local cfés next to the stream.
