The High Atlas is the biggest mountain range in North Africa. It offers extremely impressive Mountain biking, hiking trails and mountain photography. High peaks force the clouds to give high quantities of rainfall; therefore the High Atlas has many fertile valleys surrounded by rivers and waterfalls; in summer when the weather is exhausting, ourika valley is a good escape at only one hour drive from Marrakesh. Setti Fatma is at the end of the Ourika Valley; It has seven beautiful waterfalls, breathtaking views and mountain trails that require a pair of good hiking shoes. It’s a breathtaking sight that cannot be missed! Mainly when it’s combined with a visit of a Berber family in traditional house and a camel ride.
We leave Marrakesh around 08:00 in the morning; we drive toward the Atlas Mountains, many beautiful landscapes and Berber authentic (16th and 17th century) villages.
First Stop to visit a tradition Moroccan house, to see how people live and how they cook… from the roof of the house you have a beautiful view on a 17th century village and on the valley. The Lady- the owner of the house- makes a tea ceremony to show us how to make mint tea and after they serve us a kind of country breakfast (bread, butter, honey, olive oil and tea) After this we continue deeper in the valley; we stop for a 20 minutes Camel Ride.
After the camel raid we drive until the end of the road, we leave the van and go hiking for two hours to see some water falls (cascades). We come back to the van; we drive half a way and stop for lunch in a nice restaurant having beautiful views on the valley. Lunch is composed of a variety of Moroccan Food. By 5:00Pm we drive back to Marrakesh.
