From Marrakech to southern Morocco

Marrakech and its surroundings reveal their best kept secrets slowly. No fear of getting lost in the labyrinth of the medina, you won’t take a step back to admire the Koutoubia minaret, fell the evening swarming of the Djema’a el-Fna square, admire the inimitable blue of Villa Majorelle and the ocher colored stalls of spices from the souks of the Red City. A sense of adventure will overwhelm you every time you visit Marrakech. Then, let yourself embark for a first trip south of Marrakech towards the fertile banks of the Ourika Valley and the peaks of the High Atlas.

Day 2

Marrakech

MARRAKECH CITY TOUR

One of Morocco’s most exotic cities, Marrakech will dazzle all the senses. Known as the ‘ochre city’, Marrakech is filled with both grandeur and charm, from its mosques to its old medina. Today you’ll go on a city tour, visiting sites such as the lush Jardin Majorelle, which was designed by French painter Jacques Majorelle. It’s filled with elements of Moorish charm, as well as Art Deco touches, lotus-filled pools and exotic plants. Other places you’ll pass in the city include the grand 12th century Koutoubia mosque and the ornate Bahia Palace. The city tour will be followed by a traditional and tasty lunch (we’ll take care of all your restaurant’s bookings).

The evening will be free to do as you please, whether that’s shopping the rabbit warren of underground souks for glittering lamps or experiencing the sounds and smells of Jemaa el-Fnaa square, or simply stay at the your hotel oasis to pamper yourself.

Day 3

Marrakech

COOKING CLASS

Today learn all the local tips for making some of the traditional Moroccan dishes. The workshop will be conducted by a dada (a traditional Moroccan female cook) who will discover you the secrets of a lamb or chicken tajine, how to prepare a couscous or a tasty zaalouk. You’ll then eat your labor for lunch, before enjoying a relaxing afternoon.

Free evening to enjoy Marrakech on your own

Day 4

Marrakech - Ourika Valley

OURIKA VALLEY

Today, leave Marrakech and take the scenic route to Ourika Valley, the pleasant prelude to the Atlas. On Mondays takes place the weekly market, and then it sounds like a plan to drive to Tnine Ourika to watch in person what a nomadic Berber market looks like, with hundreds of vendors including farmers, doctors, barbers and traders. After the visit, we suggest a short treck through the valley and Ourika river before lunch, that can be arranged in a garden, at a luxury-rustic hotel restaurant on top of a hill or with a Berber family.

After lunch, transfer to your oasis of peace in the Atlas Mountains: Kasbah Tamadot.

Day 5

Ourika Valley

EXPLORING THE ATLAS

Immerse yourself in a true cultural experience and enjoy from your real Moroccan hideaway. How does it sound 1-hour mule trek, having tea in a local Berber House, and ending up with a visit to Eve Branson Foundation?, A truly unforgettable day with purpose.

Free evening at Tamadot, the facilities include a heated cliff-side infinity pool, an on-site restaurant that features a mix of traditional Berber fare and international favorites, a recreation area complete with tennis courts, a ping-pong table and a small amphitheater, and a superb spa. You can opt for wandering the gardens and inhaling the fresh air.
