The valley of Ourika is in the foothills of the High Atlas mountains, a beautiful area located 30 km south of the city of Marrakech.
The Valley is thick with lush countryside that provides a home for both: local Berber people who enjoy a traditional life style, and visitors who are in search of calm and freshness, away from the noise and bustle of Marrakech.
This is a lush green valley and all along the road to the village of Setti Fatma, once arriving there, you can hike through the rocky trails which leads to the waterfalls, sport shoes or sneakers are recommended rather than sandals.
You might finish your tour with a delicious meal in one of its many restaurants that line the valley, feet in water.

On the road, a chance to visit the souk (weekly market), depending the day you planed to get here, as says its name (souk tnine Ourika, which means: the souk of Monday in Ourika), depending on your wishes, you can also visit one of the women’s cooperatives for the production of argan oil, then you will be going in a house inhabited by a Berber family, inviting you for a cup of tea with mint (you can attend to learn how to do it at home, in the same way as them).
