Get close to nature and even closer to understanding and enjoying the ancient Berber way of life. You’ll leave the hustle and bustle of Marrakech behind in a brand new air-conditioned minivan or 4WD. During this 8-hour tour, you’ll visit lush, green valleys in the Atlas Mountains, see waterfalls, and experience Berber living with a home visit.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Begin with pickup around 9am from your accommodation in Marrakech and head in the direction of the Atlas Mountains. Your driver and vehicle will take you through the wonderful sights of the Ourika valley, in the Atlas mountains. First stop will be a visit to a traditional Moroccan house, learning about the lives of indigenous Morrocan village people, including traditional Berber cuisine.
Experience stunning views of the village and valley from the roof of the house. The lady of the house will conduct a tea ceremony and demonstrate how to make mint tea, which will be served with a traditional country breakfast (bread, butter, honey, olive oil and tea). After leaving the the Berber village, you will explore further down the valley, stopping for an optional 20 minute camel ride, if you choose (15 € per person).
Continuing on further into the Atlas mountains, pass through and stop off in some typical Berber villages to experience everyday life in this region. Then continue onto Setti Fatma, which marks the end of the Tarmac road. Once here, you get off and have lunch in a local restaurant before you set off for another 60 minute walk to visit some of the waterfalls. After the visit to the waterfalls, you then get back to the car and make your journey back to Marrakech, arriving around 5pm.
