Know More about this tour

Morning departure from Marrakech on a private day trip to Ourika valley, which is located at the High Atlas mountains of Morocco. It sits about sixty kilometres from Marrakech in the foothills of the high Atlas. Ourika valley is one of the best and most attracted destinations for Moroccan families, couples, tourists. Even though it is near to the populated Marrakech, also one of the most unspoiled valleys in Morocco.
The valley is a maze of lush greens within salt mine, one of the most beautiful and best preserved valleys in Morocco. The region is without a doubt the perfect destination for people who seek Moroccan adventure, discovery relaxation and meditation. Through its river, which begins from the High Atlas mountains and runs down towards Marrakech, this is also where you will visit the Berber women extracting the argan oil (the unique Moroccan oil). Ourika valley is much more than a tourist location since it houses a number of plant species and the rare barbary macaques.

This day trip is great for those who wants to see the beautiful splendour with trekking to the summit. The trek begins from a Berber village called Setti fadma where you will start hiking with a professional local guide for about 1hr 30 min for going and coming back from waterfalls area. At this junction there are 7 cascades, which provide a resplendent place to take pictures.
After you get back you could have a drink by the river then enjoy a typical lunch at a local berber family house, Ourika's atmosphere and its unique decor will sure impress you, then returning to Marrakech at approximately 5pm.

    We had a fantastic day with Ismail, he was a brilliant guide, very knowledgeable and engaging personality. We saw some parts of the valleys and had a beautiful lunch overlooking the highest mountain in the range. Thanks so much for a great day.

    Zeer vriendelijke chauffeur die zowel in het Engels als ik het Frans kan uitleg geven. De gids, aan de waterval, was ook enorm vriendelijk en helpt waar nodig, op het moeilijker begaanbaar weggetje. De lunch, bij de gids thuis, was zeer lokaal maar zeer lekker. Echte aanrader om dit te doen!

    Incredible good guides that is there to make sure you have a great experience, which is the most important for me on top of the great nature Morocco has to offer

    Vi havde skøn tur til Atlasbjergene. Dejligt slippe lidt væk fra byen larm og travlhed. Vores guide Ismail var helt fantastisk. Meget vidende og fortalte gerne om alt vi mødte på vores vej. Hans gode humør smittede af på hele gruppen. Frokost hos berber familien er nok det bedste måltid vi har fået i ferien. En rigtig dejlig tur som jeg kun kan anbefale.

    Fantastic way to see some of the Moroccan countryside and meet local Berber guides and get a glimpse of village life. The tour was well organised and our guide Ismail was brilliant. He was full of knowledge and kept us entertained for the duration of the trip to & from the drop off point for the hike. We had an excellent guide for the trip to the waterfalls & the lunch at the Berber house was a great way to see how people live in the villages. I would highly recommend the trip!!

    A full day with lots of different impressions, wonderful Atlas mountain landscapes, waterfalls, a very special meal at the home of a Berber family and lots of fun. A day which you do not want to miss. Make sure you bring good hiking shoes and a good portion of physical condition :-))

    We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Contact before the tour was prompt and informative. Abdul met us exactly on time, greeting us very warmly. We stopped at places we’d never have found if we’d travelled independently. Food up in mountain home was delicious and had stunning views. I would advise sturdy footwear for the waterfall visit as it’s a bit of a scramble over rocks in places and my sandals weren’t ideal! The mountain guide, a second Abdul, made me feel very safe though:-)

    definitely a fun and worth it trip. abdul is very informative and thank you to the family who cooked us a delicious meal in their home. the views are amazing and i had a blast.

    DEC 01 2017 High Atlas Mountains and 4 Valleys Day Trip from Marrakech High Atlas Mountains and 4 Valleys Day Trip from Marrakech Booking Reference Number: VIATOR633225432 1 2 3 4 5 Dec 03, 2017 I was surprised when the driver and organizer Mohsin picked me up with and SUV and I was the only one in the tour so it felt like private tour. The hike to the waterfall was amazing and thanks to the local guide Abdul who really helped through the walk it was slippery at some part. The villages in the valleys are beautiful. We stopped in several point with nice view mount Atlas with snow top. However the trip highlight was the lunch cooked by the Berber villagers. The most delicious tangine and couscous I ever had in Morocco.

    Absolutely no complaints about this tour at all! It was perfect - the valleys and the scenery were beautiful and it was a great experience for us. We got to meet with many berber villagers and locals, which was very special and made our tour extremely personal and interesting. We learnt many things and got firsthand experience of their ways of living, their food and much more which we wouldn't have known about otherwise. Our tour guide was really friendly and well informed - he answered every question we had. Our ride was extremely comfortable and he played some great music too! All in all, I totally recommend this tour, you WILL have a lovely experience that's totally worth the price.
