1 Day Ourika Valley & Kasbah Bab Ourika Tour


This Private Tour is for anyone in want of complete relaxation and who wish to escape the frenetic energy of Marrakech, the gardens on route to the Ourika Valley and deluxe Kasbah Bab Ourika mountain retreat hotel, offer respite far from the madding crowds. The beautiful varied garden settings provide the perfect mix of relaxing heady scents and creative inspiration in addition to the Kasbah’s panoramic mountain views.


We meet with you at your accommodation in Marrakech to spend a day in the green valley oasis of Ourika, an approx 50mins drive through the suburbs and the open road toward the Atlas Mountains.

On route to Ourika, you make a visit to a relatively new garden opened to the public, filled with the most beautiful and amusing public art within a contemporary and highly sculptured garden setting. It is a totally unique and memorable North African garden with colorful garden café, small shop with priced items and areas for relaxation.

Your next visit is to another unique location, an authentic, rustic, herbal apothecary’s garden. Here you can experience the delights of a herbal outdoor footbath in the hollowed out earth while being served mint tea and homemade Moroccan biscuits in a rustic garden setting. It too has a small shop selling high quality and price, not bartered for herbal products.

On arrival in the Ourika Valley, you visit a traditional Berber family home for a demonstration of the Moroccan mint tea ceremony served alongside a small amount of honey, oil and homemade bread. Thereafter enjoy the amusing sights of tagine cafes, accessed by swing bridges that straddle the river and table and chairs situated in the river bed below, before arriving at the settlement of Setti Fatma.

Your journey then takes a steep climb up to the beautiful and authentic Kasbah Bab Ourika, accessed only by 4x4 or mule.  Enjoy a lunch in the gardens or terrace of this mountain retreat hotel of high quality, with panoramic views of the Ourika valley below. Enjoy an afternoon of relaxation in its gardens, poolside and stunning tented relaxation areas.
