The trip will begin with an early pick-up from your accommodation in Marrakech, at around 7:30 AM. The journey will take you over the High Atlas Mountains, where we will cross the Tizi N’Tichka pass (2260 m in altitude). After several stops along the way, you will arrive at an important point of your trip where you will visit the UNESCO World Heritage site Ksar Ait Ben Haddou, which is the location of numerous Hollywood successful movies (Gladiator, Prince of Persia, Game of Thrones, etc.) After lunch, we will be heading to Ouarzazate, known as “The Gate of the Sahara”. We continue our trip to the most prominent of the oasis valleys that dominate southern Morocco, “The Valley of One Thousand Kasbahs”, via the Valley of the Roses and the city of Skoura with its immense palm groves, We reach our hotel located in Dades Valley or Tinghir. Dinner and overnight.


Day 2: Dades Gorges – Todra Gorge – Erfoud – Merzouga Desert (270 km -4 h)

After having breakfast at the hotel, we will be heading to Todra Gorge, at a 68 km distance from Dades Gorges, where we will stop so you can enjoy the breathtaking landscapes of the oasis, with beautiful palm groves and amazing images with the Ksar Tinghir, also called the “Jewish Quarter”. We will continue our road by admiring one of the most spectacular canyons in the world, Todra, where you will enjoy a short walk around the area. We continue our road towards the captivating dunes of Erg Chebbi, which are a part of the Merzouga desert. After we arrive at the hotel in Merzouga, you will prepare for a 90-minute camel trek across the sand dunes, just in time to see how the color of the dunes changes under the fading light of the sunset. After arriving at the camp, where you will spend the night in nomadic tents, you will enjoy delicious traditional Moroccan food, next to a fire camp, while being entertained by local Berbers playing their drums.


Day 3: Erg Chebbi (Merzouga Desert) – Erfoud – Midelt – Azrou – Ifrane – Fes (470 km- 7 h)

You will see thousands of palm trees at a distance of 20 km long. From here we will reach the Ziz Valley, where we will stop in order to admire the magnificent view of the region and the town of Aoufous. Before we arrive at our destination, we will be passing through Azrou, a famous Berber village located in the middle of the largest cedar forest in Morocco and the home of Barbary apes, and by the ski resort of Ifrane (the Moroccan Switzerland) built by the French in the 1930s to resemble a Swiss village.

  1. Roxana Andries

    I would highly recommend using this company, it has to be the very best in Morocco, 5 stars Abdou provides an excellent VIP customer-focused service.

  2. Lina Paul

    We had an amazing time, the whole experience was wonderful. The stops during the trip were a really nice extra!! Our tour group was a cozy bunch of people from all over the globe. The drive to the desert was great as well! I tend to get a bit of driving sickness but thanks to our amazing and super-friendly driver Abdou I had no problems at all. All the other guides we met during the trip were friendly and knowledgeable. Would recommend this to anyone.

  3. Namita Joshi

    Very good experience. The guides were very friendly and the driver, Abdou, was excellent. I recommend this experience.

  4. Andra

    This is a one-in-a-lifetime experience we had on our bucket list. The 3 days allowed for us to know different cities, fabulous landscapes, and delicious food. We were picked up at our hotel and our guide Samir, even though his English was very basic, was very respectful, responsible, and friendly. Sleeping in the tent was special, I highly recommend paying extra for the luxury of having a bathroom inside and if you are going in the month of May, please pack a portable fan, it will help you sleep better.

  5. Ashley Biden

    Great trip & Great guides! The drive out to the desert includes multiple short breaks for refreshments & loos, as well as at several points of interest where local guides show you around other sites & scenic spots. All adding to a great experience in the Sahara!
