It is a berber village located in the tranquil foothills of the High Atlas Mountains in the heart of the Toubkal . National Park lays the pretty Berber village of Ouirgane (pronounced Weer-gan).
About 90 minutes drive from Marrakech, it has a gentle winter climate and moderate in summer. This village provides an alternative and lesser-visited village base for walking, horse riding and mountain biking trips in the Atlas.
Wonderful views of the Toubkal range, a wide variety of bird life and a fresh and invigorating altitude of 1,000 metres await the traveller who makes it here. Ouirgane is located on the valley floor of the Oued Nfis (river Nfis), and spring is a fantastic time to visit when the almond blossoms are absolutely breathtaking.
