Discover the prettiest Berber valley, the Ourika Valley, situated 60 km south of Marrakech.
During your tour, witness Berber villages and hamlets perched on mountain slopes of the High Atlas Mountains. Enjoy plenty of time to stop to take photos of the little terraces of various crops and other wonderful and exotic sceneries. Take the time to visit a local Berber house and some stores of pottery and varied samples of minerals and crystals before you return to Marrakech.
Get picked up from your hotel in Marrakech and drive into the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains which rise up from the plains. Then, enter a lush, agricultural valley with a thriving traditional culture. Make your first stop of the day at a place where local Berber women extract precious argan oil from the kernels of the argan tree.
Next, head to the village of Setti Fatma – the starting point for a 1.5-hour hike to the Siti Fatma Waterfalls. Follow a steep trail across a series of narrow bridges to 7 picturesque cascades. While at the waterfalls, and throughout the tour, take advantage of your day with a local trekking 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 an optional classic Berber meal of tajine, salad, and fresh fruits. We return to Marrakech where you will be dropped off back at your hotel or Riad.
