Explore the Ourika Valley, located in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. It sits 38 miles (60 kilometers) from Marrakesh in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Even though it is near the bustling city, it is one of the most unspoiled valleys in Morocco. You will discover a maze of lush greens and salt mines on this 8 hour tour. It's the perfect destination for people who seek Moroccan adventure, relaxation, and meditation, offering you the chance to completely switch off from modern life.
You will come across the Ourika River, which begins in the High Atlas Mountains and runs down towards Marrakesh. Here, be on the look out for the large number of plant species and even the rare Barbary Macaques that have made the valley their home. The walking excursion is great for those who want to see the splendor of the high Atlas Mountains without trekking to the summit. Your trek begins at Setti Fatma, where you will walk for 1 hour to the heart of the Ourika Valley.
At the valley, observe the refreshing waterfalls, providing a resplendent place to take pictures and rest, and enjoy lunch at a nice restaurant at Ourika afterward. Often times, a family that lives in the valley will open its home to those who wish to enjoy the surroundings and partake in a meal. At the end of the tour you will be driven back to your hotel in Marrakesh.
