- Product code: TRKFDOUCH
Great vistas, great people, great moments and a nice lunch in a house of the village of Tizi n’Oucheg to sample Ourika and Berber culture at its best. One of our most beautiful excursions: an intimate, customizable tour of Ourika region, its High Atlas vistas, dramatic cliff top villages and human warmth. Sit down to homemade tajine lunch and break bread with your village hosts.
Up Ourika valley to Tazzintout and onwards to Ait Oucheg valleys with bird’s eye views of the villages of Anammer and Aguerd, litterally carved out the mountains side. Make your way through the unusual Aguerd gorge and the juniper and cedar forests to end this great hike in the village of Imi n’Taddart. Our intimate knowledge of the valley and long established links with the locals allow you to fully appreciate this gentle exposure to the High Atlas foothills, landscapes, culture & people.
