Overview

Hike through a scenic landscape of Berber villages, mountain peaks, and waterfalls on a full-day, private tour from Marrakech to the Ourika Valley. Enjoy the flexibility of a private tour as you explore the valley at your own pace: watch local women extracting argan oil, walk to a series of waterfalls, and join a Berber family for lunch at a local home. This full-day, private tour includes round-trip transport from Marrakech, lunch, and all activities.
  • Full-day tour to Ourika Valley from Marrakech
  • Travel with a private driver/guide
  • See argan oil production in the High Atlas Mountains
  • Hike to the Setti Fatma Waterfalls
  • Eat lunch in a local home
  • Pickup and drop-off at Marrakech hotels
Meet a driver/guide at your accommodations in Marrakech, then make the 37-mile (60-km) trip to the Ourika Valley in a climate-controlled vehicle. As you drive, you’ll see the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains rise up from the plains, then enter a lush, agricultural valley with a thriving traditional culture.
The first stop of the day is a place where local Berber women extract precious argan oil from the kernels of the argan tree, then you’ll head to the village of Setti Fatma. This the the starting point for a 1-hour, 30-minute hike to the Setti Fatma Waterfalls, following a steep trail across a series of narrow bridges to seven picturesque cascades. While at the waterfalls, and throughout the tour, take advantage of your day with a private guide to set your own pace, with plenty of time to take breaks or ask questions.
Following the hike, cool off with a drink, then continue to a family home for a classic Berber meal of tajine, salad, and fresh fruits. At roughly 5pm, begin the return trip to Marrakech, where this tour concludes at your original departure point.

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.
