    PACKAGE DETAILS

    DAY 1 - Fes - Azrou - Midelt - Merzouga

    After pick-up from your hotel/riad in Fes we will travel into the mountains to a region known as Imouzzer, blanketed by forests of cedar, juniper and cork oak.

    The area is well known for its abundant wildlife, and we may see many types of birds, wild boards and Barbary apes on our scenic drive. Then, the road will start climbing into the Middle Atlas Mountains where we may see slopes dotted by the tents and goat herds of nomadic Berbers who call this rugged region home.

    After lunch in Midelt, we continue to the wide flowing OuedZiz Valley. Passing many Kasbahs and palm groves we slowly start approaching the first dunes of Merzouga. We will spend the night in a hotel right on the outskirts of the desert.

    DAY 2 - Merzouga - Rissani - Erg Chebbi

    Today we will explore a region of desert landscapes, but will start with a visit to the seasonal lake of DayetSrji, where we might encounter pink flamingos.

    The desert against the lake provides a beautiful contrast. We will also visit the Khamila village, where we listen to the Gnaoua music, a style typical in the region.

    Then, explore the ancient city of Rissani, which thrived from the 8th to 14th century due to the caravan routes. Here you will have the chance to visit the famous market that takes place 3 times a week.

    In the afternoon before the sunset we will get set to cross the desert landscape with a camel trek for about 2 hours to reach our oasis in the desert for the night. We will spend the night in the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi in the desert.

    DAY 3 - Erg Chebbi - Merzouga - Todra Gorge - Dades Gorge

    After breakfast and a stunning sunrise we return to Merzouga on our camels for breakfast and to shower. Today we will be exploring the region of many dotted Kasbahs, palmeries and gorges creating photographers paradise.

    We will visit the Todra Gorge, the highest oasis in Morocco, with walls of 1000 feet (300 m), and a mere 20 meters apart at their most narrow point. We will end our day in another spectacular gorge of Dades, lined by red and mauve rock that towers high above the road.

    DAY 4 - Dades Gorge - Rose Valley - Ouarzazate - AitBenHaddou

    This morning we will descend into the Rose Valley , home to beautiful scents especially during April and May when the roses are in bloom. After our visit, we will follow the road of Thousand Kasbahs to the Skoura Oasis, lined by palm groves.

    Here we visit one of the Kasbah, Amerhidil, once an important Kasbah in Moroccan history. Then we arrive to the developing city of Ouarzazate.

    We will have the chance to visit the movie studios and a center Kasbah of this town, Taourirt. We will spend the night at AitBenhaddou .

    DAY 4 - Ait Ben haddou - Marrakech

    In the morning we will visit the unique and well-preserved Kasbah of AitBenHaddou. We recommend a walk through the winding streets of the Kasbah for awe-inspiring views.

    The Kasbah is quite extraordinary and it is no surprise that it has inspired many films and directors. After our visit it will be time to cross the High Atlas Mountains on a dramatic drive over the TiziTichka Pass.

    We will then drop you off at your accommodation back in Fes, where our tour will end.
