What You'll Do

Dodge the crowds and discover authentic Berber culture in the midst of the awe-inspiring Atlas Mountains, and cool off at the incredible sight of the Ouzoud Falls.

We’ll pick you up at around 8am directly from your riad or hotel, to embark on an adventure deep into the Atlas Mountains to explore the highest waterfall in Northern Africa.

The drive lasts for about 2.5 hours, and sweeps you across mountain roads, through dramatic plunging valleys and round corners that suddenly present stunning vistas of snow-capped mountain peaks, looming imposingly in the distance.

On the drive, we’ll see traditional Berber homes en route to the falls, and you’ll learn a little about traditional Berber culture, and how these particular families and communities live in these isolated mountain villages. This is a unique chance to get under the skin of native culture and really understand the local way of life.

Eventually, we’ll pull up and take a small, scenic hike to Ouzoud Falls, a truly spectacular location. Hemmed in by the dusty, orange-brown rock, the falls cascade down steep valley walls and creates a dripping trail of lush green.

Enjoy the therapeutic sound of the falls splashing into the cool, deep pool below, the rainbow mist providing beautiful relief from the heat of the day. Hop on a boat for an up-close and personal view of the waterfalls, and enjoy this escape from the heat and bustle of the city as you soak in the cool, refreshing spray.

There are a number of exploring opportunities around the Ouzoud Falls, including old working mills set in the idyllic backdrop. You are free to enjoy a leisurely lunch in the laid-back atmosphere, and chill out as you dine in the midst of all this natural beauty.

If you’re lucky, you may even spot the endangered Barbary Macaque in the surrounding forest, wandering freely in their natural habitat. After lunch, we’ll take the small hike back up to your vehicle, where we’ll begin the journey back to Marrakech, arriving for the cool early evening.
