Marrakech for nature-lovers
Did you know? Marrakech is not only an enchanting city but also an ideal region for enjoying the perfect nature experience. Many excursions await children and adults, just a short journey from the hotels and pleasures of the city and offering a refreshing break.
You could take an excursion into the Ourika region for instance. This very well preserved, lush green plain provides a sublime landscape with its chequered panorama of crops. Its walks, interspersed with the occasional swim, are truly delightful.
Forty kilometers from Marrakech, Lake Lalla Takerkoust provides an initial refreshing pause. A little further, 150km from the ochre city, the Ouzoud waterfalls, the most famous falls in Morocco, tumble down from their impressive 110m height. Access from the city is via charming signposted shortcuts bordered by olive trees.
These trips are broken by pleasant and typical stop-offs such as the valley of Asni, a small village, with a beautiful red kasbah overlooking sumptuous gorges, awaits you.
Closer to the city, set off with your family to the Terre d’Amanar. This five-hectare preserved estate, bordering the Mont Toubkal nature reserve, is at an altitude of 1200m. You can stroll between the trees and children can even choose to ride a donkey. There is plenty to occupy the more adventurous: the high ropes course, with its fantastic zip-lines over canyons, is unforgettable.
