Itinerary:

At an altitude of 3200m, Oukaimden is the highest ski resort in Africa and probably one of the most original places to go skiing or snowboarding in the world. It is highly popular with both foreign tourists and Moroccan ski enthusiasts.

You can rent ski and snowboard equipment on arrival if you do not want to carry it all the way from home or the fancy suddenly strikes you to ski in Morocco. Snowfall is between December right up until April and it is possible to ski on a plateau of some 750 acres. The pistes are suitable for all kinds of skiing.

Of course, there is no obligation to ski but is a lovely place simply to walk or take the ski-lifts for the sake of the wonderful views of the High Atlas. Later in the day, you return to Marrakesh via the Ourika Valley, full of Berber gardens, fields and orchards of apples, pears, pomegranates and walnuts. This is an excellent destination for lunch on the banks of the river or even at a table set in the river itself.

The rest of the year the valleys are connected by mules – another kind of adventure! Apart from this, there are an observatory and 4000-year-old rock carvings to visit. Oukaimden is also a hikers’ set- off point for the Ourika Valley, Asni and the ascent of Toubkal.
