Excursion to the Ourika Valley. This is one of the most demanded excursions from Marrakech, in it we enter the heart of the Berber country, the Ourika Valley. This valley is still one of the most beautiful and best preserved valleys of Morocco, the small villages clinging to the flanks of the massifs, the waterfalls and rocky landscapes that blend with the omnipresent desert, all this forms a wild and seductive harmony in the confines of the western Atlas.

Discover the lush waterfalls of Ourika Valley and Setti Fatma on this private 7-hour trip. The day trip to the Ourika Valley is a popular attraction due to the numerous waterfalls and the wonder of nature that is at your fingertips.

Crossing the course of the Ourika River you can admire the landscape of the High Atlas, completely different from that seen in Marrakech. Once in Ourika you will have free time to walk through the valley, eat in its traditional restaurants or take a walk of one or two hours to then visit the waterfalls of Setti Fatma.

Day trip from Marrakech

The vast majority of tours departing from Marrakech through the Atlas end up passing through the Ourika Valley, which runs along the river of the same name. Place where the inhabitants of Marrakech usually escape to spend a festive day in one of the many restaurants/merenderos built along the river, with chairs prepared to eat with your feet soaking. I guess in summer it is a refreshing option, but in winter, with the icy waters I do not think it is a good choice.

Do not miss it

It is close to Marrakech. Do not miss it. A real unexpected contrast. Also originality of the tourist restaurants. A river in which you can sink and cool your feet while eating. Fun and different

Wonderful visit

An excellent excursion from Marrakech to go with the whole family. The most daring can climb to the falls and the older ones can enjoy the Valley and an exquisite Moroccan tajin on the banks of the river. There are many restaurants with an exquisite treatment and good food at a very good price.
