Berber Territory.

Ourika Valley is situated in the foothills of the High Atlas, 60 Km from Marrakech. Besides it's proximity to the "Red City", it is still inhabited by Berbers who practice a traditional way of life.

Your journey will start at 9 am in Jemma El-Fna Square where a Mini-Bus will pick you up. After a 45 minutes trip you'll stop to enjoy a first sight of a traditional Berber Village and have the opportunity - totally optional - to ride a camel.

At 10.30 am you'll arrive to the Aromatic Garden, "Arom Montagne" where, during 30 minutes one can see, smell and shop the best oils and aromatic and medicinal plants the country has to offer.

At 11.15 am you'll be offered the opportunity to visit a traditional Berber Family House.

After that, at 12.00 pm you'll start a vertiginous 40 minutes walk until Ourika's waterfalls. Take your swimming suit with you and refresh yourself.

Following the descent, you'll be taken to have lunch (all included but beverages) in a traditional Berber Restaurant, "La Belle Rose" at 2.15 pm. Don't let yourself misled by the restaurant's look. Food is amazing and people very warm.
