Ourika Valley Day Trip, Popular with Moroccans looking for an escape from the heat or the hustle of Marrakech, Ourika Valley is a lush oasis in the foothills of the impressive Atlas Mountains. Go on an off-road adventure away from the city and explore the region’s green villages, orchards, and vegetation.

Your tour begins at 9:00am where you will be picked up from your hotel in Marrakech. During your scenic drive, you’ll experience the beautiful landscape with the traditional Berber villages and the fruit orchards. If you would like to, you can visit a local woman’s argan oil co-operative and buy some nice souvenirs. Next, you’ll be driving along the Ourika River valley to the famous village of Setti Fatma. Here, you’ll find a wide range of restaurants and it is the starting point for different tours to the 7 waterfalls. Enjoy your free time in Setti Fatma of about 2 hours (incl. lunch break). You’ll have the option to hire a local guide to take a nice hike up to the falls (not included), you can go shopping in the numerous souvenir shops along the trail or just relax and enjoy an extended lunch break in one of the restaurants directly at the riverbanks. Finally, on the drive back to Marrakech, you’ll be able to visit a Safran farm run by Swiss women and learn how they harvest the Safran. Enjoy a guided tour of the botanical garden with the barefoot trail and try some safran tea and –sauce. After your visit, you’ll be driven back to Marrakech where you will be dropped off at your hotel/riad at around 5:00pm.

PACKAGE DETAILS

DAY 1 - Depart from Marrakech at 8am with your private driver

Depart from Marrakech at 8am with your private driver who will pick up from your accommodation and bring you to Fez. During the route you will stop to drink mint tea and keep on going until the Berber village of Ouzoud. The name of which means “grinding of the grain” in Berber. Located 150 km northeast of Marrakech, this is an important Moroccan landmark due to the spectacular Ouzoud Waterfalls, which are a stunning 110 meters high and fall past three levels. Considered to be among the most beautiful waterfalls in the country, they are located in a rural valley of red sandstone and lush greenery including almond, olive and fig trees. Rainbows can often be seen crowning the falls, and you will be able to see a dozen small, traditional oil mills that are still in business. Quiet, entirely pedestrian and replete with natural beauty, the site offers numerous campsites with rudimentary huts of bamboo and reed. There are swimming areas, small terrace restaurants and shops run by local craftsmen, and you may even see free-roaming groups of Barbary apes.

Perfect Tour Company. They planned our trip beautifully... we enjoyed our trip.
