Pick up from your at 9 :30 am directly to The Ourika vally ; the valley is considered one of the most pristine valleys in morocco, A few steps away from Marrakech the valley extends about thirty kilometres, winding through the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains where traditional houses are situated on the clay slopes. Where you will stop for a tea break in a local family house, after you will have chance to visit a local Berber ladies cooperative of Argan Oil ,to see how they make it and have an idea about this magical tree ,and what they can make from it, The road continues along the Oued Ourika(Ourika river) , where water is plentiful throughout the year. Lined with vegetable crops and orchards, long shaded meadows offer one the chance to relax and have tea beside the river in a small typical cafe shop . Then return to take another  road which is relatively quiet typical Berber village with people known for their gracious hospitality and lifestyle .and is situated in the hollow of the imposing slopes of the Atlas with an altitude of fifteen hundred meters’ then on to Sidi fares Valley /Oasis  where you have a nice and traditional lunch (in a typical restaurant or in a local family house ) ,after you have short walk and a bit of a scramble above the village.
