Description

A beautiful drive of 60km takes you to the foot of the Atlas at about 1000m altitude. You will discover the small villages of red mud, hanging on the sides of the mountain. Ourika Valley is probably the most visited area in the Atlas Mountains, only a short 1.5 hours’ drive from Marrakesh and at the foot of the famous ski station Oukaimeden.

It is a pure wonderful place where the birds only disturb the silence. Ourika is also famous for its local pottery. Enjoy a guided walk to the well-known waterfalls of Setti Fatima. Lunch will be taken either at a Berber family or in a local restaurant.
