Full description
Start your day of unique sightseeing with a convenient pick-up from your accomodation in Marrakech. Your driver/guide will be here to meet you and after a short meet and greet you will set-off on a scenic drive toward Ourika Valley. 

Upon arrival you will start your adventure in Setti Fadma, a traditional Berber village. Here, your friendly and professional guide will take you on a one-hour walk through the village, allowing you to discover the local way of life and views of stunning waterfalls. 

During your tour, your guide will take you on a trek to all the most significant spots to get the best view of the Ourika Valley. The valley is a maze of lush greens within salt mines and is considered to be one of the most beautiful and best preserved valleys in Morocco. The region is without a doubt the perfect destination for people who seek Moroccan adventure, discovery, relaxation and meditation. On Mondays and Fridays, an additional scheduling of a market walk through is available. Your guide will take you through traditional Berber markets where you can see the locals interacting and take a visit to see local women extracting argan oil. 

After a day of mild trekking you will be taken to enjoy a traditional lunch in a local restaurant by the river with panoramic views of the village of Setti Fadma. After your delicious lunch you will be taken back to your accomodation in Marrakech to enjoy a relaxing end to an amazing day.
