Day Trip to Ourika Valley from Marrakech

This day trip to Ourika Valley is to probably the most visited area in the High Atlas Mountains and a short 1h30 drive from Marrakech.  We will pick you up from your accommodations and drive along the Ourika valley and banks of the Ourika river. Once we have arrived you may choose to use the services of a local guide and hike to the waterfalls.

The beautiful village of Arhbalou  has a multitude of small restaurants owned by Berber families along the river’s edge. A picnic lunch at Arhbalou Cascades or at the edge of the Ourika river is popular with locals and tourists alike.

 The day trip to Ourika Valley is a peaceful escape from the busy city streets of Marrakech, so take an advantage while you are here to enjoy some time to relax outside the city.
In November, you can see the saffron farms in the area for the annual saffron harvest.
