Pick up around 9am from your accommodation in Marrakech and head towards the Atlas Mountains. After some 45 minutes passing through olive tree groves we will arrive at the gate of the Ourika Valley at the village of Tnine Ourika, where a great weekly market is held every Monday where all the surrounding villagers come to buy their needs for the whole week. If you do the tour on a Monday, then you will get change to visit the market before we start the 2 hours walk to Ourika.
The walk will go through many Berber villages and cultivated terraces until the village of Timalizine from where we cross the bridge and get back to the car to carry on the journey up the Ourika Valley. Next we will find the stunning village of Setti Fadma which marks the end of the Tarmac road, here we’ll have lunch at a local restaurant before embarking on a short walk to nearby waterfalls.
After the visit of the waterfalls, we then get back to the car and make our journey back to Marrakech to arrive around 17h with a possibility of visiting a traditional Berber home on the way back if time allows.
