Marrakech day trips: fabulous trip to Ourika Valley
Temperatures are cooler in the shadow of snowcapped High Atlas peaks, and this blooming valley a little more than 50km south of Marrakesh is the city’s escape hatch from the soaring summer heat. The valley is especially mood-altering from February to April, when almond and cherry orchards bloom manically and wildflowers run riot. So, to escape the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, a day trip to Ourika Valley is highly recommended.
Around 09 am, our stuff meets you at the lobby to pick you up from your lodge after having your breakfast. Today is going to be dedicated to an adventurous trip to Ourika Valley. We leave Marrakech and drive through High Atlas Mountains with nice panoramic views of green mountains. On our way, we will make stops for photos and panoramic views. As we arrive to Ourika valley, we go on a hike to enjoy the views from the high altitude. The hike takes 1h30. After hiking, we have lunch in one of the local restaurants. Our journey will lead us back to Marrakech with a visit to a Berber family; we will have a cup of tea and discover the authentic lifestyle they live. Late afternoon, we arrive to Marrakech and drop you at the hotel. End of our services.
