Located in the High Atlas Mountains, 25 miles (40km) away from Marrakech, the Ourika Valley stretches along a vast area from Souk Tnin Ourika to the Berber village of Setti Fatma.
The road to the Ourika valley is bordered by gardens, fruit trees, small villages, summer houses, as well as cafés and restaurants.You will leave Marrakech around 9am; and drive toward the Atlas Mountains, many beautiful landscapes and Berber authentic (16th and 17th century) villages. First stop to visit a tradition Moroccan house, to see how people live and how they cook. From the roof of the house you have a beautiful view on a 17th century village and on the valley.The Lady - the owner of the house - makes a tea ceremony to show you how to make mint tea and after they serve you a kind of country breakfast (bread, butter, honey, olive oil and tea). After that you will drive until the end of the road, leave the vehicle behind and go hiking to see some waterfalls. Upon return, you will have lunch in a nice restaurant having beautiful views on the valley. Lunch is composed of a variety of Moroccan specialities.
