Ouirane for 5 nights. Too long?

Thinking of staying in Ouirane for 5 nights and Essaouira for 6 nights. Does anyone know if there is much to do in Ouirgane? Two children aged 14 and 12 years old as well, although they are not terrible demanding!

Any information would be appreciated, also is the temperature as hot as Marrakech during the day? Last year we frazzled in Marrakech.

Thank you.

Hi,

It will be cooler in Ouirgane than Marrakech. There's lots of good trecking there but is that all you want to do for 5 days? There is paragliding and quad biking if that helps?

Ouirgane isn't particularly high, it's at 900m. Marrakech is at 500m, so you'd generally expect temperatures in Ouirgane to be 2c to 4c lower.

Apart from chilling out the only activity I'm aware of is walking, and whilst it's a lovely place I think you'd quickly run out of routes after a couple of days unless you have a hire car or other transport at your disposal.

You could head south to the top of the Test pass and on the way visit the mosque at Tinmal.

Or heading north you could visit Moulay Brahim perched high above Asni (travel north through Asni then take a road on the left). Then there's the road on the right in Asni that goes to Imlil and more walking.
