Nestled in the foothills of the mighty High Atlas Mountains, the Ourika Valley makes a popular day trip from Marrakech at just 30km from the city center. A lush expanse of terraced fields and forested hillsides, the valley provides a picturesque backdrop for hiking expeditions, with its verdant hills set against the stark red rock of the mountains. At the heart of the valley are the dramatic Setti Fatma falls, a series of 7 cascading waterfalls that flow into the Ourika River and make a thrilling scramble for adventurous travellers.
You will depart from Marrakech with your private driver and head out to to the famous Ourika Valley, with its incredible beauty. The views are fabulous, and you will get a glimpse of the lifestyles of inhabitants of the region by enjoying a glass of tea in a private Berber home. Upon arrival to Ourika you may choose to hike a trail that meanders past the famous waterfalls of Setti Fatma. Lunch will be served in a restaurant by the riverside.
