Excursion to Ourika Valley-Atlas Mountains
Approximately sixty kilometers away from Marrakech, the Ourika valley spreads between the first foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Despite it being so close to Marrakech, this beautiful lush green valley is definitely one of the best preserved valleys in Morocco.
Thanks to its souk, inhabitants from neighbouring hamlets meet there to negotiate their precious harvests, purchase essential items and simply chat about the region’s latest gossip, all in an indescribable atmosphere; a mixture of peddlers’ shouts, hold-ups caused by old donkey-drawn carts and rousing good humour.
In the programme of our excursion, we propose to you a visit to a typical Berber house, to see how women prepare the traditional bred and how the berber families live. We includ in this visit a Bio – Breakfast prepared by the owners of the house (traditional bred, Moroccan menthe tea, olive oil from the garden of the house, honey of the house…).
We includ in our excursion another visit to the « women cooperative » of Argan oil.
When continuing the journey along the Ourika valley, visitors are astounded by the banks of the river where the prairies are generously shaded by poplar trees and other weeping willows, unusual under this latitude. Visitors rave about this multicolour landscape which blends the ochre of the land perfectly with the neighbouring green.
When we arrive to the village of Setti Fadma you can hire a local Berber-guide to visit and discover the 7 waterfalls (option)
Many local restaurants with terrace over the river offer traditional cuisine with good price(Menu : about 10€).
The price of the excursion includes the visit to the cooperative, transport in luxury cars with air condition and English speaking drivers.
