This is a marvellous trip during which you will discover the most spectacular valleys of the area. Ourika Valley, Sidi Fares and Asni valley.
Your guide will pick you up at 9 am from your hotel or riad, and leaving Marrakech, east of the city direction of the high Atlas, will cross several villages before driving along the Ourika valleys, stretches for about 30 miles across the foothills of the High Atlas.
This is one of the most picturesque drives where the road follows the rushing Ourika River, which although the levels vary, never runs dry and provides wonderful whitewater rafting in the summer months.
Somewhere in this valley we will have a mint tea pause by the mountain stream, before heading off-road on the foothills of the Atlas mountains. we will take that route at leisurely pace,
and If happen to be a day where it is local Berber market in one of the villages, we would stop in the morning to visit it. We will drive through villages and will be able to stop whenever you want for photos or to get information. We also encourage our clients to bring unwanted spare clothes or shoes with them, as well as school supplies that you can distribute yourself once you travel with us, there will be lots of Berber kids on the way
We will continue to climb upwards until you leave the main road at an altitude of over 2000 meters.
Then we will follow an ancient, partly paved Berber track to reach the Sidi Fares valley an authentic area famous for apple trees, here you will have lunch in a Berber house in a village overlooking the Atlas Mountains.
The food will be homemade and organic: tomato salad, chicken tagine, couscous and fruits. If you are vegetarian, please let us know in advance.
After lunch we will head off for the greener Asni valley where orchards lined the route. You can also admire the Mount Toubkal: the highest peak in Northern Africa culminating at 4167 meters, and often snowcapped.
