On Foot in Ouirgane ( 1 day ) :
High Atlas Day Trip – Exploring the Ouirgane Valley Nestled in the tranquil foothills of the High Atlas Mountains in the heart of the Toubkal National Park is the pretty Berber village of Ouirgane. Wonderful views of the Toubkal range, walking, horse-riding, mountain biking, a wide variety of birdlife and a fresh and invigorating altitude of 1,000 metres await the traveller who makes it here. Ouirgane is only a one hour drive from Marrakech and is located on the valley floor of the Oued ‘River’ Nfis.
This relaxed day trip will take you from the walls of the ‘Red City’ to the High Atlas hamlet of Ouirgane. En route you’ll make a stop at the busy little town of Asni which is a buzz of activity as local Berbers ply to sell their produce, particularly on Saturdays – market day. Once in Ouirgane your time is free to explore the village. Fed by the Oued Nfis from the Atlas, a perennial water source, the village is surprisingly verdant – a real oasis in the mountains. In recent years a dam was built creating a reservoir which adds to the visual appeal of the valley. Market day is Thursday in Ouirgane.
The most popular activity for visitors is walking – several circuits offer options for people of all abilities, from an hour’s stroll along village tracks, past typical Berber houses, farms and fields, to more challenging walks through the valley and along the river. Your guide will brief you on options when you arrive. Alternatively, enjoy the fresh mountain air and views from a cafe. Lunch is taken in a typical Berber village house, enjoying a home-cooked three course meal of Moroccan salad, couscous with lamb or perhaps a tasty vegetable tagine, fresh seasonal fruits and tea. After lunch you have time to discover more of the picturesque Ouirgane Valley .
