We went on a trip organised by our riad (Ryad Mogador) for 250MAD (£22ish) and we went in a lush 4x4 to Ourika Valley. We stopped at a herb garden (trying to sell you herbs and argan oil but no obligation to buy) which was pleasant. Our guide also stopped at a few photo stops for us too which was great for my snap happy self!
We got a guide and managed to haggle him down to 120MAD (£11) for both of us. He was lovely and helpful (called Sulemaine). Went through some Berber shops but no pressure to buy really.
Climbed up and up and up. It was rainy that day but this made it all the more beautiful as it was all misty. I did not notice much rubbish. Just a lot of leaves from the trees. I would leave both hands free for the climb up and down!
The waterfall at the end was not spectacular but was lovely all the same. The climb on the way down had some spectacular views.
Was hard work but I did it fine in my flipflops! Well worth it though and dont worry if it rains. It gets cold at this time of year but the view is stunning for the mist.
