Excursions in Morocco
Excursions from Marrakech:
Marrakech was founded in the 11th century and has always captured the imagination of Western travelers. Its rich history as a unique Imperial City is reflected in its various quarters. Within the ramparts are the souks where tribesmen in the south and Berber villagers come to sell handicrafts and foodstuffs. Located in the fertile plain of Haouz, at the foot of the magnificent Atlas Mountains, this city is of incredible beauty, projecting its ochre walls and monuments to the rays of sunshine. From Marrakech, you can easily arrange excursions in Morocco reaching up to Ourika Valley, Asni, d’Ouzoud Waterfalls, Ait Benhaddou and Essaouira, which are trips not to be missed.
Ourika Valley Excursion:
Departure from your hotel / riad at 9:30am. A beautiful drive of 60km takes you to the foot of the Atlas at about 1,000m altitude. Discover and explore the small villages, cafes, grocery shops and small hotels clinging to the sides of the mountains, terraced agriculture, and clear fresh water from the Ourika river. You will visit a Berber house to experience their lifestyle, simplicity of equipment and the privacy of a Berber family. Then you will assist in the preparation of mint tea and exchange cultures with the family.
