Day 1. Marrakech – Ait Ben Haddou – Ouarzazate – Valley of the Roses – Dades Gorge (324 km –6 h)

The trip will begin with an early pick-up from your accommodation in Marrakech, at around 7:30 a.m. 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, Dades Valley or “The Valley of One Thousand Kasbahs”, via the Valley of the Roses and the city of Skoura with its immense palm groves.


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

After having breakfast at the hotel, we will be heading to Tinghir and Todra Gorge, at a 45 km distance from Dades Gorge, 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)

After an early wake-up, so you can watch the sunrise while riding the camels, you will have breakfast at the hotel and leave for Fes, by passing through the Tafilalet palm grove, one of the biggest in the world. 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. The 3-day desert trip will end at your hotel or riad in Fes.

4 reviews for Morocco desert tour 3 days from Marrakech to Fes

  1. Anca Sarbu

    We did a 3-day desert tour from Marrakech to Fes and truthfully, it was probably one of the best travel experiences we’ve ever had. I went with my family (my dad, mom, and younger brother) and they felt incredibly comfortable during the desert trek and camping experience. We had Abdou as our guide – we LOVED having him.
    He was actually our best guide the entire time we were in Morocco and missed him dearly when we had to part ways. He’s super attentive and caring and is willing to shift the itinerary a bit to suit whatever kind of experience you’re looking for. For example, he quickly noticed that we loved taking photos and showed us all the best spots to take them. I have already recommended him to a few friends of mine and would highly encourage that if you do this trip that you request Abdou!

    Simply wonderful! This is an extraordinary experience. Our guide was amazing. We just really felt like we experienced authentic Morocco. Every person we met on the journey was just wonderful. Do not think about just going! You will fall in love with Morocco and leave a piece of your heart behind. It is a special place. I cannot recommend the tour enough. It’s unforgettable.

  3. Olivia Allinoneseo

    Our visit to Morocco was absolutely fabulous. All thanks to the Dounia Yoga team. I am a single mother with two children (11 and 7 years old) who have never flown before. The Aisha team helped us buy plane tickets, advised us about our luggage, and planned our entire vacation… in short, it is everything that someone who is venturing into the wide world needs for the first time. Grateful for this unforgettable experience. Morocco and Moroccans are so friendly and peaceful and the food is excellent. I really highly recommend it.

    We had the most incredible desert trip with Next Stop Morocco! Our driver, Radwan, was always sure to take us to local places. We had the opportunity to see historical sites that are not yet open to the public and to hike through the Sahara dunes on foot and camelback. All of the planning was perfectly handled by the team, and we got to experience Morocco authentically. You can trust Dounia and his team with your trip! I could not have asked for a better experience in Morocco. I highly recommend them.
