What you’re going to do

This experience is ideal to combine two imperial cities in Morocco, Marrakech and Fez and to discover Sahara Desert via Merzouga & Erg Chebbi dunes with camel trekking.

Day 1 : Marrakech - High Atlas - Ait Ben Haddou - Ouarzazate - Dades Valley

Picking you up from your accommodation in Marrakech at 8:00 AM, we will together depart to the High Atlas, Sof Moroccan Atlas mountains, going through Tizi N'Tichka port with stops for panoramic views to take pictures of the Berber small villages that camouflage in the landscape. Then we continue south to the ksar (fortified village) of Ait Ben Haddou where we will visit the famous Kasbah (declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986). Famous films have been shot in this spectacular stage, including Gladiator, Obelix, The Mummy, The Jewel of the Nile, Sahara with Penélope Cruz...etc. After our visit to the Kasbah, we will have free time for lunch in town. Then we continue to Ouarzazate also known as "The gate of the desert" which in Berber language means "noiseless or without confusion". Here, we'll see the Taourirt kasbah, one of the most spectacular ksars in Morocco. The next site to visit is the Rose Valley going through the big Skoura palm grove; a beautiful place to contemplate more than 700.000 palms and numerous kasbahs that are built in the surrounding area. In this Valley damascenes roses are raised for cosmetic uses such as the valued rosewater. The Rose Festival is held here annually in May, it is an important museum for Moroccan culture. Finally, we reach the Dades valley where we'll spend the night.

Day 2 : Dades Valley - Todra Gorges - Merzouga - Camel Trek and overnight in Berber Camp

After breakfast we'll enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the Dades Valley from the mountains, where we will also appreciate the great number of kasbahs and the scenic characteristics of each one. An asphalt road leads up the valley from the city of Tinerhir to the gorge and then to the desert. After some stops on the way we'll reach the Todra Gorges. The scenery is spectacular. Local people live in the area and can be seen in their adobe villages. Thanks to its rock sides with many uneven surfaces, these gorges are popular among rock climbers. After a short walk in the Todra gorges you will have free time for lunch in Tinejdad or Touroug and then we continue our way to the desert to reach the spectacular dunes of Merzouga. We'll take there a camel ride of one hour to our nomad camp located in the middle of a sea of dunes (Erg Chebbi). Before dinner we'll see the sunset at the top of a dune for then sleep in a tent under a beautiful starry sky.


Day 3 : Merzouga Dunes - Draa Valley - Anti Atlas Mountains - Ouarzazate - Marrakech

Very early in the morning we have a "Date with the sunrise". In the middle of the desert, waking up early is a "must do" to contemplate the most spectacular sunrise you've ever seen at the top of a dune close to the camp. After watching the sunrise, we return to Merzouga on the camels where a delicious breakfast is waiting for us. Having regained strength, we start our last trip  going through the arid pre-desertic area where we'll meet the "acacia", typical tree of these landscapes. On the way to the Draa valley, we'll make some stops to enjoy the beautiful views of the river that gives its name to the valley. Its the longest river in Morocco, going through the hole country reaching Mauritania. Our trip continues towards Ouarzazate going through the Anti Atlas. We'll have some free time for lunch in town and in the afternoon we leave to Marrakech reaching about 8:00 PM. We will drop you off at your hotels to mark the end of our adventures together.
