1. From Marrakesh: Ouirgane Private Tour with Mountain Views
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. En route a stop sill be made 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 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. The most popular activity for visitors is walking. Market day is Thursday. Lunch is at local restaurant .
