Day Trips departing from Marrakech
Delightful spot to get away from hot and exotic attraction of Marrakech to this cold and rugged Berber country home. A cluster of villages around the river valley Aremd set in a dramatic setting of the High Atlas Mountains with great views of the highest mountain of Morocco and North Africa Djebel Toubkal.A short drive takes you to the gorgeous foothills of the atlas mountains ”Imlil” were we get a ride on a mule for a half hour to Aremd and there we will have our lunch before heading back to the beginning imlil.
The Ourika Valley is 30 km from Marrakech and rests between the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. An escape from city life, the Valley draws visitors with a welcoming atmosphere of tiny villages, steep hillsides, waterfalls, and lush green gardens. Don’t forget to stop and visit the Berber villages on the way.
Morocco’s Atlantic Coast is gorgeous and, once you visit, you will want to come back. Essaouira, a relaxed town set 3 hours from Marrakech, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site – a protected city. The ramparts of Essaouria and the 16th century walled city offer astonishing views of the Atlantic Ocean. A day trip to Essaouria – one of the most charming medinas in all of Morocco – will give you some time to visit the important monuments, the old fish markets, and the seaport. You’ll also have a chance to watch silver craftsmen and wood carvers at work.
Cascade d’ozoud Water falls
The waterfalls are 3 hour car ride away from Marrakech and are found in the middle of the Atlas Mountain range. Falling from a height in excess of 100 meters, the falls plunge into an endless series of pools. The gorge of the Ouzoud Waterfalls is home to families of Barbary apes and a variety of native avian species – a bird watcher’s delight! Many visitors to Morocco don’t expect this kind of “natural experience”, so a visit to beautiful Ouzoud comes as a refreshing surprise.
Hassan 2 Mosque in Casablanca
The largest mosque in the country and the 7th largest in the world. Its minaret is the world’s tallest at 210. The mosque rises above the Atlantic Ocean. The building is built partially on land and partially over the ocean. This sitting was accomplished by creating a platform linking a natural rock outcrop reclaimed from the sea. Two large breakwaters were also built, to protect the mosque from the erosive action of the ocean waves.
