This trip takes you to the prettiest berber valley situated 60kms south of Marrakech . Berber villages and hamlets perched on mountain slopes of the high Atlas range ¨. Stop to take photos of the little terrases of various crops and other wonderful and exotic sceneries . You will have time to visit a local berber house and some stores of pottery and varied samples of minerals and cristals before you return to Marrakech.

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.
