Full description
Discover the beautiful Ourika valley nestled in the Atlas Mountains. A popular place for walking, the Ourika Valley sits 18 miles (30 kilometers) from Marrakech in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Even though it is near bustling Marrakech, it is one of the most unspoiled valleys in Morocco.

Explore the maze of lush greens and salt mines on the 8-hour tour. The perfect destination for people who seek Moroccan adventure, relaxation, and meditation, you will get the chance to completely switch off from modern life.

Come across the Ourika River, which begins in the High Atlas Mountains and runs down towards Marrakech. 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.

Observe the refreshing waterfalls, providing a resplendent place to take pictures and rest. Sometimes a family that lives in the valley will open their home to those who wish to enjoy the surroundings and discover how life in the Ourika Valley is lived.

The tour also includes a sumptuous lunch at the Amnougour Restaurant, located at an altitude of more than 3,600 feet (1,100 meters). Set along the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains, near a river, it boasts a Moroccan restaurant, with an alcoholic bar license, 3 terraces and a swimming pool.

Traditional dances and songs will accompany your meal of Moroccan salad, Moroccan Harira soup, homemade couscous, meat tagine with vegetables, or chicken with lemon, and seasonal fruit and Moroccan pastries.
