Set forth from your hotel, the morning sun illuminating your path as you venture to Merzouga. Traverse the Swiss-style town of Ifrane, adorned with cedar forests where playful monkeys frolic. A pit stop in Midelt, the apple capital, precedes your journey through the Tizi-n-Talremt pass and the captivating Ziz Valley, known for its palm trees and oasis. As you pass through Er Rachidia and Erfoud, famous for its date festival and fossils, the unique dunes of Merzouga emerge. The evening unveils the enchanting transformation of the dunes. Retire to a Desert Hotel for a night in the Moroccan oasis.

Lunch follows, leading to the Dades valley, the town of roses, Kelaa Mgouna, and the renowned Road of Thousand-Kasbah, ultimately reaching Ouarzazate—aptly named the Hollywood of Africa.
