Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
We pick up our guests at their hotel, or at a defined pick-up site depending on the location of the hotel (e.g. in a restricted area) and on the requests of our guests. Please contact us for special requests not covered by the general info provided above.

Departure Time

9:00 AM
Begin with pickup at your Marrakech hotel, then drive through the foothills of the High Atlas on your way to the Ourika Valley, where lush riverbanks are framed by arid peaks and terraced farms. Follow winding tracks deeper into the mountains to reach Oukaimeden ski resort—at 10,734 feet (3272 meters) this is the highest altitude ski resort in Africa, and skiers reach the top by chair lift, t-bar, or donkey.

Descend to the hillside village of Asni, and pause for lunch in Imlil or Ouirgane, a pair of Berber villages with sweeping valley views and traditional architecture. Continue to an agricultural plateau to learn how local farmers cultivate the steep, parched land, then head to the shores of Takerkoust Lake, a favorite weekend getaway from Marrakech.

Cross the Agafay Desert on the return trip to Marrakech, passing through an undeveloped stretch of sand and rocks that offers a dramatic contrast with the city’s bustling streets. Throughout the day, work with the driver to create an experience that’s perfect for you: take extra time to stroll around Berber villages, meet a local family for a welcoming cup of Moroccan tea, or take a camel ride through the sand. This tour concludes with drop-off at your Marrakech hotel.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Ourika Valley
We always recommend our guests to discuss about the itinerary with our driver when they meet. In this way, the day can be optimised and adapted to our guests' expectations and needs. For instance, depending on requests and weather, it is possible to spend more time in the Ourika valley and hire a trekking guide for a simple walk of about 2h (not included). Of course, if more time is spent in this area, the remaining part of the day will need to be adapted accordingly.
