Day 1: Departure

Experience the beauty of the Ourika Valley up-close on this full-day private scenic tour from Marrakech, and escape the hustle and bustle of the city for the day.

The Ourika Valley is the closest day trip from Marrakech, but it’s not just its convenience that makes it special. Drive 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.

See fruit orchards, vegetable terraces, and villages clinging to the side of hills. Marvel at the labor undertaken by the Berbers who hoisted materials to construct small houses up mountain sides, and work the terraces in a hostile environment.

Continue along the valley of palm trees, following the Ourika River. Fruit trees, tiny hamlets, riverside restaurants, and the summer homes of the wealthy will keep you occupied. Go to Setti Fatma to feel the refreshing waters of the 7 waterfalls.

Feel the spray on your face as you cool down from the African heat, along with the locals of Marrakech who have made it their favorite weekend retreat.

    l had a wonderful day visiting a local market, riding camel and enjoying a short walk in the ourika Valley. My guide mohamad was wonderful, ensuring I was ok and hiking at my pace. I enjoyed his company and the walk was one of the highlights of my trip to Morocco. I will definitely come back to spend more time here.

    Our driver picked us up at 9am at our hotel and we began our journey up to the mountains, stopping off to see the view and take pictures, at an argan oil co-operative to see how the oil is made and to taste some with mint tea, and a camel ride along the way.

    My boyfriend and I did the one day excursion into the Atlas mountains and it was one of our favourite days during our trip to Morocco. It was great to get a chance to get out of the hectic city.

    Wonderful experience in a Berber village!

    Really great time, loved that it was the whole day and the drive down the valley was very scenic. Fun refreshing meal afterward where you dip your feet in the stream while you eat. Driver was excellent- over and above to take us to our drop off location in the evening

    It was a great experience throughout the whole day. From the different stops (argan oil production / camel ride (very short but good for a taste of how its like for a longer trip) to the walk through a berbervillage, with having tea on a rooftop of a berbers house, on to the hike through the forest entil reaching the waterfall. After the long walk we were very hungry and had a tasty meal at a berber restaurant before our driver brought us back to our Hotel. Our guide was very nice and friendly and as a berber himself, he knew a lot about their culture, the way of living and the rules of the villages in the mountains. Therefore perfect first-hand information. We can recommend this tour to everybody who would like to experience and see more than just the city of marrakech.

    My friend and I loved the trip! The guide Rachid made sure we had a great time. Our highlights were the hike (where we got an insight in the Berber living and culture) and the lunch (very delicious and on a terrace with an astonishing view).
