Day Trip to Ourika

A very popular destination for both for tourists and Moroccans alike is the Ourika Valley, southeast of Marrakech. The some forty miles of road to the valley is bordered by gardens, palm and fruit trees, small villages, summer houses, as well as cafes and restaurants. Local people like to visit Ourika in summer when the air is cooler than in the city and the scenery lush and green. This is a time to sit by, or even at tables in the river itself, to enjoy the delicious tajines that have been slowly cooking on charcoal burners.

In the valley itself the Ourika river descends from the High Atlas, passing by Asguine, Aghbalou, Oulmes and finally the village of Setti Fatma from where it is possible to follow the course of the river via seven waterfalls. The wild life includes painted frogs, the Moorish gecko, falcons, the crimson winged finch, poplar trees and weeping willows.
The two main towns are Oukaimeden, a popular ski resort in winter, and Setti Fatma, best known for the seven waterfalls and the four-day moussem, or festival, in August. At Oukaimeden there are beginner’s slopes as well as some black runs for advanced skiers. At Setti Fatma you can climb up the rocks along the side of the river and past the waterfalls or go for a trek into the hills in the area.

Day trip to Essaouira

Essaouira Day Trip from Marrakech – The Ancient Mogador City

Essaouira is many tourists’ darling! Previously known as Mogador to the Portuguese inhabitants, it is a charming small town on the coast well known for local handicrafts, especially thuya wood furniture, carving and small artefacts, sold in innumerable shops along the winding streets. Orson Wells filmed “Othello” here, making especially the Portuguese ramparts famous in its opening scene.

Visit the women’s cooperative where argan nuts are processed by hand into one of the most versatile oils; delicious in salads and a treat for the skin. At the sea front, the customer chooses a selection of freshly caught fish to have prepared on the spot. The surfing opportunities and the beach make it an ideal spot for coastal lovers. Essaouira has a favourable micro-climate; mild in winter and cool in summer.

A truly favourite place to chill after a trip to the desert – on the beach, in the little cafés by the port or wandering in and out of all the little shops.


Day Trip to Ouzoud Waterfalls
