Lush green valley of Ourika

Situated 80 km from Marrakesh, the village of Setti-Fatma at the foot of the High Atlas mountains is the departure point for the 7 waterfalls expedition accompanied by our guide. This superb valley is dotted with numerous douars (villages) of adobe houses clinging to the mountainside and green, fertile orchards and fields. A veritable garden stretches out along the banks of the oued (river) that winds its way between the mountains of the Atlas and Toubkal ranges. Lunching in one of the numerous little restaurants beside the oued, on delicious tagines slow-cooked over wood fires, is a pure moment of pleasure. The expedition includes a visit to a craft pottery and traditional Moroccan mint tea with inhabitants of the douar
