Half-Day Small-Group Tour From Marrakech to the Atlas Mountains
Escape the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and experience the traditional Moroccan life and stunning scenery on this 5-hour guided small-group tour to the Atlas Mountains, especially the famous Ourika valley. Explore its lovely waterfalls and discover the traditional Berber villages made of adobe and stone.
What to Expect
After pickup from your Marrakech hotel at 8 am, travel with your small group in a comfortable and air-conditioning vehicle through the majestic Atlas Mountains on this half day tour from Marrakech.

On route, you will learn about the Atlas geography and the Berber villages that speckle their valleys and slopes. As we approach the mountains, we enter the lush Ourika Valley, passing stone and adobe-mud villages framed by the snow-capped peaks, this is where you can take amazing pictures. After a roughly 1-hour journey we will have the chance to visit the berber women that are making the precious Argan Oil (the unique Moroccan oil), and discover how they are extracting it, enjoy a full berber and traditional breakfast there (mint tea, bread, argan oil, olive oil and honey).

Continue to the end of the valley and arrive at Setti Fatma town near the falls then choose to either relax at the pretty riverside cafes or take an 80 minutes guided hike to explore the Ourika falls with our professional mountain guide, admire the cascades and take photos of the mountain views that unfurl on route.

Return back to Marrakech where your half day tour concludes at the starting point at approximately 1:30 pm.
