Escape the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and experience the beauty of the Ourika Valley on one of the most scenic day trips within easy reach of the city. Drive towards the dramatic Atlas Mountains, and travel through
a landscape of green meadows and Berber villages dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries.
Stop at a roadside souk (Monday tours only) and experience the everyday life of the people. See orchards
of fruit trees and terraces of vegetables. Marvel at villages clinging to the sides of the hills. Admire the labor
of the Berbers who hoisted materials up the sides of mountains to construct their small houses and continue
to work the terraces in a hostile environment today.
Next, journey along a valley of palm trees, following the route of the Ourika River. Pass riverside restaurants,
fruit trees, tiny hamlets and the summer homes of the wealthy. Then, go to the village of Setti Fatma and discover
a favorite weekend retreat for the locals of Marrakech. Cool down from the heat of the day at the refreshing cascades of the 7 waterfalls.
