Excursion from Marrakech to Ourika Valley & Atlas Mountains

Just one hour from Marrakech, you will find the green valley of Ourika. Ourika is one of the most common excursions from Marrakech. In the valley there is the imposing Toubkal Mountain (4.167mts) and a beautiful view of the peaks and valleys of the Great Atlas. The whole area is dotted with deep hidden valleys, ancestral villages and mighty mountain rivers, where we can observe the local population in their daily life.

The maximum splendor of the valley occurs in the months of February to April, when cherry trees and almond trees flourish and the Mountain Rivers descend with fury, due to the thaw of snow accumulated during the winter. In the area is the ski resort Oukaïmeden (2.650mts), being a good destination in the summer season, to spend a cool day in the middle of nature.

In the morning we will pick you up at the agreed place, to leave for the Ourika Valley. It is only 1 hour from the city of Marrakech. At the foot of the Oukaimden ski resort, the Ourika Valley rises gently to the first high Atlas hills where small typical villages nest. It is a pure and splendid place where silence "is only disturbed" by the song of birds, streams and women doing their daily chores. Ourika is also famous for its pottery and crystalline minerals.
