Here are some amazing destinations that you can experience from Marrakech on a day tour.

Essaouira Tours

When you feel the hectic nature of Marrakech is getting to you, it’s smart to try a short day tour of the chilled coastal town of Essaouira. This town is just a different side of Morocco, showcasing a beautiful blue and white theme that confines its pretty medina. It’s the perfect place for men who love to fish, stroll on silent streets, or simply enjoy a sip from the steaming pots of mint tea while overlooking the ocean. The coastal town of Essaouira is stunningly beautiful as well as is culturally quite different than the places surrounding it. If visiting Marrakech, Essaouira is a must-visit, especially during the summer months when temperatures soar elsewhere.

Atlas Mountains Tours

If the beauty of nature and mountains fascinate you the most, then planning a day tour to the Atlas Mountains can be the right choice to escape the bustling city and embark on a journey of never-ending memories. With easy accessibility from the charming city of Marrakech, Atlas Mountains day trips from Marrakech allow tourists to be mesmerized by the stunning landscapes, picturesque valleys, and charming Berber villages. Whether you are a trekking lover or simply want to enjoy some time in nature while camping, Atlas Mountains offer a unique adventure to everyone where you can also enjoy a camel ride to enhance your experience while immersing yourself in the rich Berber culture.

Ouzoud Waterfalls Tours

When it comes to getting a break from the busy lifestyle, nothing works better than taking a sip of hot tea while enjoying the cool breeze of drops coming right from the natural waterfall. If that sounds like a dream, here’s a destination you can choose to add to your day trips from Marrakech; Ouzoud Waterfalls. Here, water cascades dramatically down a 110-meter drop. It’s an ideal place for couples to get lost in the world of nature and feel the silence of love. That’s not all, the lush green surroundings and naughty monkeys add to the allure of this enchanting location.

Marrakech Palmeraie Tours

This is probably one of the nearest destinations you can visit during your visit to Marrakech. Located just over 10 minutes away, Palmeraie is a great choice for those who don’t want to spend a whole day traveling but want to enjoy something amazing. Visiting Palmeraie is a great choice for those who are keen to see a little beyond the city limits. Though it’s located nearby, Palmeraie is a lush green filled with beautiful palm groves that date back to the 12th century, making it one of the most-opt day trips. It has large resorts and a golf course where you can enjoy being yourself.

Ourika Valley Tours

Have you been traveling for a long time and would like to take a break in the lap of nature? Well, here’s Ourika Valley which offers a great day tour of the picturesque nature. Located just a short drive from Marrakech, Ourika Valley is a hidden gem where you can admire the lush landscapes, fertile orchards, and traditional Berber villages. While on a trip to Valley Escape, don’t forget to also visit the breathtaking Ourika waterfalls for a short picnic with your loved ones.

Agafay Desert Tours

There are many people who visit Morocco aiming to enjoy spending a night in a Sahara Desert Camp. But most of the options require at least three days out of your itinerary. But don’t worry as there is a more realistic alternative: the Agafay Desert. Located just over 40 kilometers south of Marrakech, the Agafay Desert is a great option for day trips. Here, you can enjoy the standard Sahara Desert camp experience as well as ride the dunes with quad bike excursions. Don’t forget to add a horse ride to your package.

Lalla Takerkoust

When you’re not enjoying the amazing Agafay Desert, if you still have some time, do visit Lalla Takerkoust, which is technically at the edge of the Desert. Lalla Takerkoust is a very famous reservoir that was built by the French nearly a century ago. Originally it was designed to provide the required irrigation and electricity to Marrakech, but it has turned out to be a very popular tourist destination. It’s an ideal place to visit during the summer months when the heat in Marrakech can become stifling. Here, you can enjoy amazing water-based activities like swimming, paddle boarding, canoeing, etc.

Whether traveling out of Marrakech for a day or two, these amazing weekend escapes let you explore the diverse scenery and also experience the Berber culture while being with the locals. At Best DMC Morocco, we bring to you custom day trips to add much more fun and memories to your holidays.
