Welcome to Ouirgane

Ouirgane

Nestled 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.

Discover the Muslim sanctuary of Moulay Brahim near Asni (15 km) or the Jewish sanctuary of Rabi Haim ben Diwan near Anraz (2.5 km).
