Full description
Enjoy an exhilarating day of exploration around the Ourika Valley from Marrakech. After being picked up from your accommodation around 9:00 AM, it is time to set off towards the Atlas mountains for a fascinating journey of discovery.  Take in beautiful and breathtaking views on the 45-minute drive through olive tree groves, meadows and authentic 16th and 17th century Berber villages until you reach the village of Tnine Ourika. In this village, a lively weekly market takes place every Monday, attracting people from all over the surrounding area. See fruit orchards, vegetable terraces, and villages clinging to the side of hills. Marvel at the labor undertaken by the Berbers who hoisted materials to construct small houses up mountain sides, and who worked the terraces in a hostile environment. From Tnine Ourika, you will set off on a 2-hour walk through authentic Berber villages and numerous cultivated terraces towards the village of Timalizine. After a refreshing walk, savor a delicious optional lunch in a local restaurant, before setting off on your final walk to visit stunningly beautiful waterfalls. After a busy day of discovery, sit back and relax as you are transferred back to your accommodation in Marrakech.

Good hiking excursion in the Atlas, with an expert guide (Omar). He was not an expert in Spanish, but he made himself understood perfectly. A pleasant route of about 2 hours before eating. We were able to see the beauty of the valleys and cross some Berber village. We also saw a couple of small waterfalls. Very rich food in a hotel with a balcony overlooking beautiful views. Then I thought we were going to do another short route, but we simply made our way back to the agency's office so that the driver could pick us up.

Awesome

The driver arrived at a quarter to nine, as agreed. Then we went to the valleys, we went inside and got a tour through the traditional Berber houses. Eventually we arrived at the falls where a guide was waiting for us, it was a tough trip but oh so beautiful. Our guide brought us to the waterfalls and wonderful dining occasions. Including tahini at the Berbers. Delicious! This tour was highly recommended.

Great experience

The day trip was one I would recommend. The driver who picked us up was professional and friendly. The trip to the mountains was nice. But be prepared to stop at some obligatory places where the local Berbers sell their goods. Once we reached the Atlas mountains we were greeted by a guide who took us to the cascading waterfalls. They were beatifull but crowded. So our guide took us of the main trail to a more secluded path. That allowed us really take in the view of the mountains and the small villages. After our light hike (1.5 hours). Our lunch was set up in the middle of the Ourika valley river. It was a perfect ending to a great day.
