From Marrakech: Day Trip to Ourika Valley

Beautiful day trip with the Berbers of the high Atlas Mountains.

Tour Program:

One of our top destination for a day trip from Marrakech is along the beautiful Ourika Valley to the waterfall at Setti-Fatma. You will have an English-speaking Guide and a comfortable car or Minibus with air conditioning. The driving time is normally around an hour and a quarter each way. Your party will have exclusive use of the vehicle and can vary the itinerary as you wish; the guide can recommend viewing points and stops along the way.

The Ourika Valley is the closest day trip from Marrakech, but it’s not just its convenience that makes it special. Driving towards the Atlas Mountains, taking in the beautiful landscape of green meadows and authentic 16th and 17th-century Berber villages. If you take your tour on a Monday, you can even stop at a roadside souk.

Ourika Valley is probably the most visited area in the Atlas Mountains from Marrakech. Along the valley, the banks of the Ourika river are generously shaded by poplar trees and other weeping willows. Take the services of our guides and hike to the waterfalls. The village of Arhbalou is very attractive and has a multitude of small restaurants owned by Berber families situated along the water’s edge. A picnic lunch at Arhbalou Cascades or at the edge of the Ourika river is popular with locals and tourists alike. The Ourika valley is an escape from the bustling Marrakech, so take an advantage and book your day trip to Ourika valley with us, and give us the chance to surprise you.
