About half an hour's drive away from Marrakech, it's a different world. Snow-covered mountain tops, blossoming valleys, foamy cascading mountain rivers and waterfalls, water mills, mud-brick villages clinging to mountainsides that seem impossible to reach, suspension bridges and terraced vegetable gardens. But the main thing is that a different group of people lives here. A group with its own culture, traditions, language and script. And the stories of this culture will surprise you.

Pick up from your hotel in Marrakech City Center

Please note: You will need a shuttle transfer! Unless you are travelling in your own or a rental car. Unfortunately, it is not possible to use public transport for this trip. The cost of a full-day transfer is $160 (for up to 5 people) and $240 (for 6 to 16 people), but the price may be different if your hotel is aside from Marrakech City Center.

10:30 AM

The African Contemporary Sculpture Garden (Entrance tickets are paid extra)

On the way to the Ourika valley, we will stop by a beautiful park of modern sculptures and a nomadic market (available on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday). We'll find out how the news is broadcast in the mountains and why "sprinkle your head with ashes". We will watch how local storytellers, barbers, and charlatan doctors work. Or, instead of watching, we can even try it on ourselves!

12:00 PM

Botanical garden

In the botanical garden, we can learn about native plants. Here, you can also have your hands painted with henna dye, bake bread the traditional way, take part in the production of Argan oil or visit a 'beauty salon'. Even at the age of eighty, the Ourika ladies look fantastic! Would you like a foot bath with an aromatic oil massage?! Even that is possible! Just let us know what you would like in advance (all the master classes and workshops are paid extra).

01:30 PM

Lunch (Paid extra)

Of course, we will find time to have lunch on the banks of the mountain river. If the weather is too hot, a table will be set up right in the water! Would you like to go to an ancient adobe fortress with an excellent garden restaurant, a lovely design collection, and a mind-blowing view of the valley? Just let us know in advance, so we can make reservations for you.

02:30 PM

Ourika

We will walk through a pottery village and visit the former home of a local sheikh. We'll try to guess the purpose of some of the buildings and objects (and it's not as easy as you may think). We're certain you'll find some of the technology to be genius! If you like, we can arrange for you to make your own jug on a potter's wheel. We will visit the watermill by the river. Even today, it still supplies flour to local residents. We'll figure out how a prosperous house works. All the master classes and workshops are paid extra.

04:00 PM

Ourika Valley

We will reach a picturesque cascade of waterfalls. If we're lucky, we'll spot representatives of a very unusual species of the macaque monkey. On the way, we will see how the fine lace Alabaster carvings that decorate Morocco's palaces and mosques are created, we will try on national costumes and have a lavish photo session.

05:30 PM

Transfer from Ourika to Marrakech

Here ends out journey in Ourika, and it is time to get back to Marrakech. If you ordered the transfer, the driver will bring you back to your hotel in Marrakech.

06:00 PM

Drop off to your hotel in Marrakech City Center
