Day trip to the Ourika Valley from Marrakech, The valley is located about 45 minutes from Marrakech, although there are about 30 kilometers between the town of Ourika -where you can say the valley begins-, until Setti Fatma, which is where it ends the road and you can contemplate the best views. In this last section, the winding road runs alongside a small river that anticipates the landscapes that will be contemplated later and has enough restaurants to enjoy a delicious lunch by the river.
The seven waterfalls, of which only the last two can be seen in the lower part of the mountain, are a half hour's walk from the village, always up a stony mountain road. With a bit of good orientation - especially if you hire a guide with the help of your driver and you take as orientation the souvenir stalls and the restaurants. The guide will help you to climb the waterfalls and he will help you as well to take some photos and make some further travel through the mountains on foot and learn more about areas of the valley where few tourists arrive.
The road to reach the waterfalls runs parallel to the streams that come down from the mountains and between lots of vegetation.After visiting the waterfalls you can enjoy a delicious tajine by the river or in panoramic terrace, as if it were a picnic, highly recommended.
By the the afternoon and around 5PM we will drive back to your accommodation in Marrakech.
