Itinerary of the Shared Day Trip to Ourika
Your full-day excursion to Ourika Valley begins at 09:00 AM. We'll start by driving across the Houz Plains and make our first stop at the local ladies' Argan oil cooperative. Here, you can witness the extraction process of this valuable oil and see the production of various cosmetic products.
Next, we'll head to Tnin Ourika, one of the largest Berber Souks in the area. This bustling market is where villagers from the Ourika Valley gather once a week to trade and purchase their goods.
Following that, we'll follow the course of the Ourika river, driving alongside the stream until we reach the Berber village of Setti Fatma. This village serves as a retreat for Marrakech locals seeking relief from the summer heat, offering a day in the shade of walnut trees.
If you're interested in exploring the valley on foot, you can hire local hiking guides to take you to stunning cascades and back. Alternatively, if you prefer a more leisurely day, you can relax at one of the riverside cafes and enjoy the soothing sounds of the stream with the majestic High Atlas Mountains as your backdrop.
Local cafes in the area offer a variety of options for a light lunch, catering to different budgets.
In the late afternoon, we'll make our way back to Marrakech, concluding your day trip to Ourika Valley with drop-off at your hotel or Jamaa Elfna Square.
