On this 3-day trip from Marrakech to Fes, we'll see and learn about the beauty of some of Morocco's most famous and beautiful cities, like Marrakech, Ouarzazate, and Merouga. The trip will end in Fes.
Day 1: Marrakech-High Atlas Mountains-Ait Ben Haddou-Ouarzazate-Skoura-Dades
The start of our Marrakech to Fes desert tour is going to be around 08:00 from Marrakech, crossing the Atlas Mountains to Dades Gorges through Tizi n’Tichka pass through the Atlas Mountains. After 4 hours of driving in the mountains, we will get to the heart-warming landscapes and Berber villages. We will stop to visit the heritage site of Kasbah Ait Benhaddou. Those ancient kasbahs have been used as old caravan routes, and it’s been a very remarkable destination for filmmakers for over 20 films. It was also one of the most important fortresses on the old Salt Road, where caravans brought slaves, gold, ivory, salt, and silk from sub-Saharan countries to Marrakech and beyond. After Ait Ben Haddou, we will head to Ouarzazate (Hollywood of Africa) since it’s witnessed the making of some of the famous films such as Gladiator, The Mummy, and other films. After Ouarzazate, we’ll keep driving to Dades Gorges, passing through Mgouna, Skoura, and several Berber villages around the valley.
Day 2: Dades Gorges, Todra Gorges, Jorf-Erfoud-Merzouga (Sahara night and camel ride).
Following breakfast and taking a shower, we will begin our 2nd day on our venture, going from Dades to the Erg Chebbi Sahara desert. Various Berber villages are dispersed along the way. We will pass through Tenghir, Tinjdad, Jorf, and we will stop and walk in the Todra Gorges (one of the most astonishing canyons in the world). After the Todra gorges, we will head to Erfoud, where we will notice the beginning of the Saharan oasis and villages. Then we continued driving to Merzouga. Prior to resting, we will go to ride the camels that will take us on a Sahara venture into the sand dunes. We will be spending the night at the desert camp while listening to drum music in the middle of the desert. This is a nice opportunity to take pictures of the breathtaking sunset and sunrise over the sand dunes. After all that, you’ll be having dinner, and then heading to your room.
day 3: Merzouga Desert-Ziz Valley-Azrou-Ifrane-Fes
Our guide at the camp will wake you up early in the morning to watch the sunrise, then we will ride the camels back to Merzouga. After taking a shower and having breakfast, we’ll start our tour to Fes. We will have some stops on the road to enjoy having tea or taking some pictures in the Ziz Valley before passing through the Middle Atlas mountains. We will stop by a Midelt where we’ll have lunch. Medilt is a very impressive mountain city at 1488 m of altitude, situated on the Jbel Ayachi (3737 m). In the afternoon, we’ll continue to the legendary city of Fes by stopping in Ifrane and Azrou (Cedar Forest).
