Full description
Escape the frenzy of Marrakech in the Ourika Valley, a cool mountain getaway not far from the city.

Travel by road to the picturesque village of Ourika nestled in the High Atlas Mountain Range. Experience some of the beauty of the North African countryside without sacrificing the comforts of your hotel or riad on this day trek in the mountains. Pass the village of Ouigrane on your way up a 6,563-foot peak and admire a panoramic view from the top over Ait Oucheg Valley, full of terraces and traditional houses made of stone and clay.

Ourika is an archetypal Berber village, with friendly people happy to show you around. See how the Berbers live and experience some of their food and their culture as you have lunch in a Berber home.

We were taken on a fabulous day by our driver Aziz T. The day was far more than we could have hoped for and worth twice the price. We saw snowy mountains and a desert in one day and were welcomed into a Berber home to share the best food we have eaten in Morocco. Our guide ensured we were cared for and happy, happy from the moment we were collected until we were returned to our hotel. We can not recommend this company, Azil, Ibrahim and the Four Seasons Riad, Imlil enough. This trip has made our holiday. Thank you for a wonderful day and amazing memories.

The trip was generally very good, especially the local guide through the Atlas Mountains impressed us. He told us a lot about the culture and his life with great enthusiasm, so we got to know a lot about the Berbers. The drivers were very friendly, only they spoke little while they actually had time. They probably have knowledge or it is not their job, too bad. We also booked a tour of the waterfalls and got something else

We were a group of 4 who had a really good one day trip to the Ourika Valley. Said our guide made the trip even better by showing us different highlights to the Atlas Mountains and always making sure we were happy and adaptable. The trip is definitely recommended if you want to get an insight into the Berber population as well as see the beautiful surroundings of Ourika.
