Ouirgane sits over 1000 metres above sea level in a very beautiful valley in the high Atlas mountains. Only 75 minutes drive from Marrakech, it is a great place to relax totally amongst kind Berber people, spectacular natural views and the pleasures of a 'simple life'.
The souk or market is on Thursday and people come from the surrounding villages and valleys to buy and sell goods. Walking and mule trekking are the most common daytime activities in the area and the hotels we work with can arrange mountain guides to accompany you for a half or full day. Ouirgane is a perfect combination with a few days in Taroudant, which is reached by crossing the spectacular Tiz n Test pass.
