Day 9: Marrakech – Ourika Valley – Marrakech
After breakfast we will take a day trip to the Ourika Valley, in the Ourika Valley you will find one of the most unusual areas in the region. It is located in the High Atlas, 60 km south of Marrakesh. Ourika Valley offers beautiful scenery, perhaps the best you can see.
Our trip to the Ourika Valley (named after the Trans-River) includes a stop at the authentic Berber Asni market, where families from the valley make their daily purchases, we continue to visit an authentic Berber family where we will see their home and way of life and learn how to prepare delicious mint tea.
Then we continue our trip to the Moroccan village of City Fatima, famous for its seven waterfalls. The path here takes about an hour to travel and allows to see a real “barbarian refrigerator” where bottles are stacked on top of each other and replenished by a jet of water falling from the mountains, making them chilly. This village still has small-town charm and maintains adobe homes and a peaceful life.
You will have free time for lunch in this beautiful place where you can enjoy Moroccan hospitality and savor the gastronomy of the region. We will return to Marrakech to ride a camel to enjoy the sunset, overnight at the Agafay desert camp.
