What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: La Palmeraie, Marrakech Morocco

As a great way to enjoy the freshness and tranquility of the morning, we'll start our Day Trip with a camel riding experience in La Palmeraie, wearing traditional Touareg / nomad clothing (Saharan scarf & dress) that will be provided for free!

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: High Atlas Mountains, 42152 Morocco

After getting in the mood for adventure and exploration, we'll head to Tahannaout, a picturesque village set against the backdrop of the High Atlas; one of the reasons why it's popular among trekkers and people who love outdoors. There, we're going to get inside a Berber house, to meet and take breakfast with genuine locals, and to learn how to make the traditional Moroccan mint tea, usually prepared behind the scenes in kitchens.
Afterwards, we'll continue on our mountainous road, passing by authentic Berber villages offering breathtaking views, with suggested stops at the valleys of Sidi Fares, Aït el-Qaq and Asni (up to 1.25 miles / 2200 meters above sea level).
This part of our Day Trip is quite unique, with a very calm, pure and clean route, offering a rich variety of mesmerizing sceneries and green landscapes to admire. This is your time to take some epic shots with awesome backgrounds, or to just be in the moment, enjoy the silence and reconnect with yourself.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Ourika Valley, Ourika Morocco

Our main stop will be at the Ourika valley, where we manage to come a little bit later, in order to avoid the mass tourism crowds and be able to enjoy some peace and quiet, in front of the beautiful panoramic views of this area! We'll walk along the Ourika river, so please remember to wear comfortable shoes!
To avoid tourist trap and overpriced restaurants, we're going to have lunch again in a Berber family house, as we believe it's the best option for this experience to be complete. Our lunch will consist of a fresh Moroccan salad, the main meal (A scrumptious, slowly-cooked, authentic vegetables and meat Berber Tajine) and fresh season fruits. Homemade and hearty, wholesome and healthy!
And for your belly to be filled with joy, we'll also have some Moroccan tea with a local pastry!!
Note: During this Day Trip we'll be visiting a women's organic Argan oil cooperative, and a traditional handicraft pottery workshop, which we truly think would enrich your experience. However, at One Life Trips, we have decided to be 100% transparent about all our services. Thus, if YOU decide to buy any product there, we'll receive a sales commission. This keeps us attractive to the best tour guides & local partners, so we can meticulously select genuine, helpful, non-pushy people to work with!

It’s safe to say no one knows Morroco (Marrakech especially) more than Yaya. And his number is stored in my phone as “Yaya Marrakech” for that reason. From the day we met till when we finally went on our tour was a welcoming experience. He...More
