Itinerary

Once you're picked up from your hotel, riad, or airport in Marrakech, your 7-day tour will begin. We'll take you through the Atlas mountains via the Tizi N Tichka pass, where you can snap pictures of the beautiful Berber villages and even take a stroll through some of them to experience their way of life. You'll also explore the 17th-century kasbah in Telouet.

Next, we'll head to the Ait Benhaddou Kasbah, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Here, you can enjoy a local meal in a restaurant and take in the stunning views. We'll then travel to Ouarzazate, known as "The gate to the Desert." You'll visit the Kasbah Taourirt and the Atlas Studios, where many international film producers have shot films due to the city's unique position and surrounding castles. Ouarzazate is even known as the "Hollywood of Africa."

On our way to the Dades valley, we'll pass through Roses and stop for a typical Moroccan meal. You'll spend the night in a riad or hotel within the Dades gorges, surrounded by the stunning natural beauty of the area.

Your adventure continues the next day with a delicious breakfast at the riad before we head to the Todra gorges. Here, you'll have some free time to stroll beneath the 300-meter-high cliff and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Berber communities perched above the valley. Many mountain climbers come here to practice their favorite sport.

As we continue on our journey, we'll pass through the stunning landscapes of the Sahara Oasis of Merzouga, where you'll spend a night in a local hotel. This will give you the opportunity to experience the unique culture and practices of the area, including a camel ride and the chance to sleep under the stars.

After enjoying a delicious breakfast at the hotel, we'll take you to a village populated by dark-skinned people originally from Sub-Saharan countries who celebrate the folklore of Gnawa music and traditional dance. Then, we'll visit a nomad family and stop in a small, deserted town called Menes, known for its lead 'Mifes' and minerals, as well as its kind and welcoming people.

Next, we'll meet a professional camel rider who will guide us on a camel ride to explore the mesmerizing Erg-Chebbi wavy dunes. You'll have the opportunity to stop and relax, enjoy the sunset, and even try your hand at sandboarding.

After a long day of desert exploration, we'll have a sumptuous meal and a music party around the fire at a classic Berber-style nomad tent. Then, you'll spend the night under the stars in the desert.

The next day, you'll be awakened early in the morning to witness one of the most spectacular sunrises on the entire planet. After that, you'll return to Merzouga while taking in the extraordinary splendor of the magnificent Erg Chebbi dunes.
You'll depart for Fes across the Ziz valley after breakfast. You'll first make a stop in the fossil-rich town of Erfoud. Then, you'll journey to the Tafilalt oases via the Oued Ziz and the Ziz Gorges. You'll stop in Errachidia along the way for lunch and to experience authentic Berber hospitality.
We carry on our journey through the Cedar Forest to Azrou, which in the local Berber language means “rock.” This rocky hill is home to the endangered Barbary Apes and is surrounded by a lush cedar forest.
The next destination will be Ifrane, a clean, contemporary city that recalls Switzerland more than anywhere else in the Middle Atlas. In the late afternoon, you will be driven via Fes to a conventional hotel or riad where you will spend the night.

Fes, the oldest of the four Moroccan imperial cities, is a must-see destination. Begin your half-day tour of the city with a local guide in the medina, established over a thousand years ago and the oldest in Morocco. Fes consists of two parts, Fes el Bali and Fes el-Jadid, with Talaa Kebira being one of the most important streets in Fes el-Bali.
Make sure to visit the stunning Al-Attarine Madrasa, a school located near the Al-Qarawiyyin Mosque, built by the Marinid sultan Uthman II Abu Said (1310-1331).
Don't miss the chance to see the breathtaking view from el Mellah before continuing your journey to Rabat, the new capital city.

Continue your seven-day desert adventure in Rabat, Morocco's historically significant capital city, which is home to the Kasbah of Oudaias. Next, visit the unfinished Hassan Tower minaret. At the medieval fortification of the Chellah Necropolis in the heart of Rabat, explore the Roman and Islamic ruins.

Casablanca will be the next destination in which we will be able to visit the second-largest mosque in Africa, (the Hassan II mosque), which is well worth visiting with a panoramic view, this magnificent mosque is situated on the Atlantic coast.
