The Ourika Valley stands out as one of Morocco’s most enchanting landscapes, captivating both tourists and locals alike. Situated just 65 kilometers outside Marrakech, this destination undergoes a transformative shift from arid brown vistas to a lush green valley adorned with vibrant colors.
The valley is renowned for its abundance of argan trees, hosting numerous argan oil cooperatives. Visitors have the opportunity to witness diligent women processing argan nuts and extracting oil, utilized for both cosmetic and culinary purposes. Beyond the cooperatives, the valley beckons with opportunities for small hikes and traversing Berber-made bridges that span its expanse.
For the more adventurous, the seven waterfalls of Setti Fatma await exploration, with local guides available to navigate the valley and assist with any obstacles along the way. Choose a charming restaurant to enjoy a delightful lunch either beside or amidst the river, allowing you to savor the experience with your feet immersed in the refreshing water.
Nestled at the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains, Ourika Valley lies just 45 minutes southeast of Marrakech, offering a refreshing escape from the city’s summer heat. Tailored for nature enthusiasts, this day trip invites you to embark on a leisurely trek to discover one of the quaint waterfalls or simply unwind with a snack at a local café nestled under the shade of walnut trees along the stream.
As you embark on a 30-minute drive through the fertile Haouz Plains, the journey takes you to the Tnin Ouika center. Here, take a break to explore the bustling open-air Berber weekly market, especially vibrant on Mondays.
Continuing the adventure, proceed to Setti Fatma with a stop at a Berber house along the way, where you can share a cup of mint tea with the locals. Upon reaching Setti Fatma Berber village, embark on a guided light trek to explore the waterfalls above the village, with the option to hire local guides for an enhanced experience.
