Leave Marrakech for the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains on a full-day trip from Marrakech to the Ourika Valley and Setti Fatma waterfalls for your private group of up to 15 people. On shopping days, you can visit a traditional market on your way through the scenic landscape of orchards, villages, and farms. Enjoy independent time in Setti Fatma to hike, explore, and enjoy the waterfall, then visit a local restaurant for a Berber-style lunch. This tour includes pickup and drop-off at centrally-located Marrakech hotels.
Begin with 9am pickup from your Marrakech hotel: if you’re staying in the car-free old city, you may arrange to meet the driver at a central location that’s convenient to you.
Drive south from the city towards the Ourika Valley, following the scenic Ourika River past Berber villages and small farms. On Mondays and Thursdays, you can opt to stop at a traditional souk market along the way.
The drive to Setti Fatma is roughly 1.5-hours long, and you’ll have free time in the village to explore on your own. Follow rocky paths to the seven Setti Fatma waterfalls (you may also hire a local guide to lead the way), and find a spot by the mountain pools to enjoy the cool air and rugged scenery. Pause for a traditional Berber lunch at one of the restaurants by the waterfalls (own expense), then meet back up with the driver for the return trip to Marrakech. This tour concludes with drop-off at your Marrakech hotel at roughly 4pm.

touristy and more costly than advertised
, Jan 2019
I thought that this would be a quiet hike in the mountains. Instead, there were lots of tourists and many people hawking their wares. Also, I was disappointed that when we got to the base of the falls our dirver said we had to pay more if we wanted to see them. We ended up paying forty dollars more than the cost listed. Then, the trip to the falls was less than twenty minutes. The"falls" were not impressive. Trip was a bummer.ON the flipside, we did have a very nice driver.
