Stop At: Ourika Valley, Ourika Morocco
At around 8:30 am, your private guide will pick you up from your hotel in the central Marrakech. Travel south toward the Ourika Valley beneath the Atlas Mountains by an air-conditioned private car. After a roughly 45-minute drive, you will arrive at the foothills of the rocky range and soak up the views as you make your way along the steep-sided Oued Ourika gorge.
Here, what you need to do is to immerse yourself in the nature. Breathe in the cool mountain air and pass the rushing rivers, lush terraces, and apple, almond and olive groves tended by Berber villagers. Glimpse mud-and-stone Berber hamlets where donkeys drink from mountain springs, and as you travel, hear fascinating tales about the age-old Berber culture and customs. Stop at a village and learn how the locals cultivate their crops in the rich valley soils. Head inside a rustic Berber house and discover more about the slower pace of mountain life as you chat to the friendly locals over a glass of mint tea. If you're here between February and May, enjoy the added sight of green pastures awash with wildflowers and hillside cherry orchards wreathed in pink blossom.
In the afternoon, appreciate more beautiful scenery when you return through the hills to Marrakech, where your trip concludes at the original start point.
