Ourika moment
Atlas Mountains, Morocco


The inside track

Charaf El Gattiou is the Four Seasons Marrakech‘s excursionist, who works with the hotel’s concierge team to create unique experiences around the city and the Atlas Mountains.


Have lunch and some freshly-brewed mint tea while dipping your feet in the Ourika river at Setti Fatma. It’s one of my favourite pastimes.


Take a trip offroad in the High Atlas, in the areas around Al Haouz and Ouazgita, or Moulay Brahim and Asni for a real slice of Berber life.


The sunset over the magnificent Lalla (lake) Takarhoust. It really is a magical sight on a clear day. Just watch out for the low-flying, amateur paragliders.
