Ourika Valley Trip Itinerary

The shortest Moroccan day trip that we run from Marrakech, the trip to Ourika Valley is a bargain when it comes to travel time, with just 1 hour spend in the luxury of our Toyota Landcruiser before arriving in the fresh and lush paradise of Ourika Valley.

Setting off from Marrakech half an hour later than our usual day trips, you will travel just 30km outside the city, but due to the drastic change in landscape it will feel like you’ve gone 200km!

Due to the small travel time, your trip to Ourika Valley is highly customizable, allowing you time to explore, sit and enjoy the scenery featuring steep farmed and natural hillside, discover a Berber village or seek out the beautiful gardens and monuments for which the area is famed.

Because of the proximity to Marrkech, don’t be surprised if you share Ourika Valley with local Moroccans enjoying a well-deserved break, especially during the holidays – it really is a favorite beauty spot for so many.

Lunch will be provided, with tastes and intolerences catered for as best as possible – but please remember this is primarily a rural landscape and therefore options for eating out are relatively limited.

However, the food that is available is delicious – just speak with your trip operator beforehand.
