The Ourika Valley offers the perfect day tour from Marrakesh. The Ourika Valley slopes gently alongside the Ourika river, resulting in beautiful views from small Berber villages. The Ourika Valley ends in Setti Fatma, home of the Seven Waterfalls. It's also possible to combine this trek with a visit to the magnificent Ksar Ait Ben Haddou.
Another trek is to the Azzaden (or Azzanane) Valleys. Windy mule tracks, traditional Berber villages and juniper trees are characteristic for the valley. The highest peak, Jebel Aguelzim, stands at 3,600 meters, the views make the hike very worthwhile.
