Day Trip to Ourika Valley from Marrakech Itinerary:
Driver will pick you up at the Riad at 8:30 a.m. to begin your day trip to Ourika Valley from Marrakech. This day’s excursion has been planned to take you away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and into the purer, cooler air of the High Atlas Mountains. Berber life has nothing in common with the red city and is a vital element of any journey here – many argue this is the true Morocco, not just the Imperial Cities! We first pass through the Berber settlement of Tahanout, about 35 kilometers from Marrakech, on our route toward the High Atlas Mountains. There is a Jewish cemetery in this town, as in many other Moroccan towns and villages. Enjoy tea with a local Berber family, who will show you a traditional hammam and bread ovens.
We arrive in Asni, a little Berber town noted for its permanent and weekly souks, after passing through the Toubkal National Park. From here, we head east to the Ourika Valley. there are two wonderful spots worth visiting on the way back to Marrakech (but only if you have the time and do not want to walk in Ourika). Your day journey to the High Atlas Mountains concludes when you return to Marrakech at 18:00.
