What You Can Expect

Ourika Valley Day Trip from Marrakech

Escape the hustle and bustle of Marrakech on your Ourika Valley day trip

After a convenient afternoon pickup from your hotel in Marrakech, meet your guide and hop aboard your air-conditioned coach for the 45-minute drive south into the Ourika Valley. Nestled in the foothills of the mighty Atlas Mountains, the Ourika Valley extends along the River Wadi boasting spectacular mountain scenery and cool temperatures even in the summer months. Visit between February and April to enjoy beautiful views of cherry orchards blossoming among the vibrant wildflowers.

Travel in comfort through the picturesque Oued Ourika gorge and soak up beautiful views of the lush, green valley sides. Pass through Berber hamlets where donkeys drink from cool mountain streams and gain insight into the rural way of life outside busy Marrakech.

Visit a traditional Berber village with your guide, and learn of the many flowers, plants and crops that thrive in the valley’s rich, fertile soils. Take a seat and enjoy a cup of traditional mint tea, and perhaps take the time to enjoy a little conversation with the friendly locals.

When it’s time to head back to Marrakech, wave a fond farewell to the villagers and hop back aboard your coach for the journey back to your Marrakech hotel, where your Ourika Valley day trip will come to an end.
