Overview

Discover the delights of the Ourika Valley in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains on a 3.5-hour afternoon trip from Marrakech. Hop inside an air-conditioned coach and venture into the lush valley carved into the Atlas’ foothills. Pass emerald-green terraces, fruit orchards and hillside Berber hamlets; soak up epic mountain scenery, and trace the river through the picturesque Oued Orika valley gorge. Along the way, visit a traditional Berber house to sip mint tea with the locals and learn about the ancient Berber way of life.
  • 3.5-hour day trip to the Ourika Valley from Marrakech
  • Travel through the foothills of the Atlas Mountains
  • Admire the lush landscape of the Oued Ourika gorge
  • Enjoy a cup of mint tea with the locals in a traditional Berber house
  • Tour includes round-trip travel by air-conditioned coach from your hotel in Marrakech
Begin your experience with a pickup from your Marrakech hotel or from central Marrakech. Settle aboard your air-conditioned coach with your guide and travel south toward the Ourika Valley beneath the Atlas Mountains.
After roughly 45 minutes on the road, enter the foothills of the rocky range and soak up the views as you make your way along the steep-sided Oued Ourika gorge.
Breathe in the cool mountain air and pass rushing rivers, lush terraces, and apple, almond and olive groves tended by Berber villagers. If you’re here between February and May, enjoy the added sight of green pastures awash with wild flowers and hillside cherry orchards wreathed in pink blossom.
Glimpse mud-and-stone Berber hamlets where donkeys drink from mountain springs, and as you travel, hear fascinating tales about the age-old Berber culture and customs.
Stop at a village and learn how the locals cultivate their crops in the rich valley soils. Head inside a rustic Berber house and discover more about the slower pace of mountain life as you chat to the friendly locals over a glass of mint tea.
Afterward, admire more beautiful scenery as you return through the hills to Marrakech, where your trip concludes at the original start point.
