What You Can Expect ?

Taking a day to explore the stunning scenery of the Atlas Mountains is a highlight of any trip to Marrakech. You get to see how different life is in the villages of the valleys and what a truly beautiful country Morocco is.

Begin your small-group day trip with a pickup from your Marrakech hotel or riad, and board your air-conditioned 4x4 or minivan.

Hear about Morocco’s rural way of life as you drive into the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Admire the snow-tipped peaks as you head further into the spectacular range, and after roughly an hour, arrive at the Ourika Valley.

Ogle the greenery and terraced slopes and stop to admire the Ourika’s stunning waterfalls — a lovely contrast to the rugged mountain slopes.

Walk to the falls and take photos of the tumbling waters, and then visit a local Argan Oil Co-operative, where Berber women extract the oil of Argan nuts to use in cooking and cosmetics. Then visit a bio-aromatic garden where plants and herbs are cultivated for medicinal, aromatic and decorative purposes.

Drive on into the beautiful Oukaimeden Valley. Climb to 5,900 feet (1,800 meters) up a winding mountain road, passing Berber villages of stone and adobe perched on the steep slopes.

Stop for lunch at a restaurant (own expense) or opt to visit a local family home for your meal. Meet your welcoming Berber hosts and enjoy a homemade lunch of salad or soup, tagine with couscous and a dessert and drinks.

Continue to the third valley — the Asni Valley high in the mountains. View Mt Toubkal, at 13,665 feet (4,165 meters) and pass the Asni’s apple, walnut, peach and almond groves. Afterward, head toward the fourth valley that is Asni, famous by its fruit trees (Apples, walnut, almonds, peaches...), have your camera ready to take pictures of highest peak in North Africa, the Toubkal mount with 13 665 feet.

Afterward, return to Marrakech or, if you’ve upgraded, take the 1-hour drive to Takerkoust Lake. Admire the azure artificial lake framed by snow-capped mountains and pass traditional villages to the Kik Plateau, a limestone mountain plateau with epic views over the verdant valleys below.

Your trip then ends with a drop-off at your Marrakesh accommodation.
