4-Day Fes Desert Tour
From Fes to Marrakech, crossing the Atlas Mountains to Merzouga, showing you life between the Atlas Mountains and the Moroccan desert.
Day 1: Fes - Midelt - Sahara Desert
After we pick you up at your riad, we pass through Ifrane to arrive at the cedar forests of Azrou, where there are wild monkeys. This will be a good opportunity to take pictures of the wilderness in Morocco. Then we go to Midelt through the Middle Atlas Mountains and stop there for lunch. We continue to Erfoud along the Ziz Valley along a series of beautiful fortified villages whose architecture announces the pre-Saharan oases. We arrive at the dunes of Merzouga (Erg Chebbi).
Dinner and accommodation in a Kasbah.
Day 2: Dunes Erg Chebbi
After breakfast, you will have time to enjoy the Sahara of Erg Chebbi, the desert with highest dunes in the world. We depart to Rissani, also called old Sijilmassa, the sourcing center of ancient caravans from the Sahara. We will visit the old and traditional market, where you will have a lunch of the typical food Mdfouna (pizza tradition). You will take your camel caravan in time to watch the sunset in the dunes (about an hour and a half by camel). You will spend the night in a nomadic tent in the Sahara to enjoy the silence of the desert sky filled with stars.
Dinner and overnight in a private nomad tent.
Day 3: Merzouga - Rissani - Todra Gorges - Roses Valley - Dades Boumalne - Ouarzazate
After sunrise, we go back to the oasis by camel. At your hotel, breakfast is already waiting for you. We depart to Tineghir via Rissani, Erfoud, and Tinejdad and visit the Todra Gorges. We have lunch and continue to Ouarzazate through the Dades Valley and the Valley of Roses. We make a stop to visit the Kasbah Ameridil.
Dinner and overnight at the hotel in Ouarzazate.
Day 4: Ouarzazate - Ait Ben Haddou - Marrakech
We visit the town of Ouarzazate, founded in 1928, which has a famous film studio where movies and series such as Secret of Sahara, The Mummy, Prince of Persia, and Game of Thrones were filmed. Afterward, we visit the Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou and continue to Marrakech. We arrive in Marrakech in the afternoon and drop you off at your accomodation. This is the end of our service.
