1 Day Trip To Ourika Valley From Marrakech
Our Ourika Valley day trip begins at 9am from your accommodation in Marrakech. After a short drive from Marrakech to the Atlas Mountains. Follow the road along the valley of Ourika and roam the hillsides to see the spectacular scenery of vibrant colors. The first stop is the traditional Amazigh house in the valley. The family serves us tea and a local breakfast consisting of bread, honey, butter and olive oil. Another destination is the Women's Argan Oil Cooperative. Argan nuts are unique to Morocco, and the Moroccans have long known the great advantage that the oil extracted from these nuts can be used daily in either cooking or cosmetics. Then continue your tour and visit to Setti Fatma, which is acclaimed for its seven beautiful waterfalls, beautiful cliffs and green valleys. Walk around the valley, take pictures of the green terraces surrounding the Atlas Mountains, and hike to the first waterfall with a local guide. After the hike, return to lunch at a lovely restaurant with beautiful views of the mountains. Lunch consists of a variety of Moroccan dishes (vegetarians are also welcome). After that, I will return to Marrakech around 5 pm.
