MARRAKECH DAY TRIP TO THREE VALLEYS
We meet with you at your accommodation in Marrakech to journey into a huge adventure playground for hikers, skiing enthusiasts, mountain bikers and nature lovers. Your 50min journey takes you through the rural suburbs of Marrakech until you arrive in the Ourika valley with unique mountain villages, sometimes indistinguishable from the mountain and sights and experiences to make you smile.
On arrival in the Ourika Valley visit a traditional Berber family home where the making of traditional mint tea is demonstrated and for you to enjoy with some local honey, home-baked bread, and olive oil. After tea follows the winding river flowing between rocky crags, which in turn are straddled with wooden swing bridges for accessing the multitude of tagine stands and restaurants to arrive at the settlement of Setti Fatmia where you meet with your private local professional hiking guide for an approx 1hr 30mins trek to view the seven waterfalls.
On your descent enjoy lunch in one of the many river cafes with tables located in the shallow river bed to cool your feet before departing to climb by 4×4 from 4,922 ft to 6,550 ft arriving at the mountain ski resort village of Oukaimeden and Berber villages of Sidi Far, offering memorable panoramic High Atlas Mountain views and optional viewing of pre-historic rock carvings.

This full-day trip of the Atlas Mountains and Three Valleys begins with a morning pickup from your hotel in Marrakech around 9 a.m.
It takes around an hour to go to the first valley, Ourika Valley. With beautiful valleys, breathtaking views, and cascading waterfalls, the view is stunning. We make a quick stop in the settlement of Setti Fatma, which is home to seven waterfalls.
Then we continue to an argan cooperative maintained by Berber women in the area. They demonstrate how the golden argan oil is extracted from the argan nuts.
Next we drive to the second valley, Oukaimeden valley. We pass traditional Berber villages on the way. Oukaimeden contains a diverse cultural history as well as prehistoric rock art sites. Oukaimeden is a ski resort containing Africa's highest ski lift during the winter months.
Last stop is the Asni Valley, the third valley. With a cluster of Berber settlements located around the valley river, the region is known for Fruit trees (like: apples, walnut, almonds, peaches etc).
We return to Marrakech after touring all three valleys and drop you off at your hotel or riad around 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
