Tour Overview

INTRODUCTION

​In the Foothills of the High Atlas

The Ourika Valley is in the foothills of the High Atlas mountains. Travelling time to the Ourika Valley, from Marrakech, is around 45 minutes. The scenery in Ourika is of uplifted rocks, deep, water sculpted, valleys, rich vegetation and captivating Berber communities and activities.

ATS offers several half day hikes/treks in the Ourika Valley e.g. around the area of the Kasbah Bab Ourika and the villages of Timalesen, Azro Melloule, Tafza and Taourirt. The hike/trek encounters forest, open vistas, cultivated fields, Berber villages.

Duration of hikes/treks can be from 2 to 4 to 8 hours; height gains on a trek can be from 100m to 600m; distances walked can be from 10kms to 15kms. Each hike/trek can be readily tailored to requested requirements.

For our clients who wish to spend a full day in Ourika Valley, hiking towards Setti Fatma is an ideal choice, a favorite weekend destination for many Moroccans. Here there are many beautiful streams and several waterfalls, impressive cliff faces as well as productive fields (many terraced too) where the farmers still use traditional methods to manage water for irrigation. After the hike we go back for lunch in a nice restaurant with a beautiful view over the mountains.
