The Fes to Marrakech Sahara Tour promises an odyssey through the Sahara, weaving through valleys, gorges, and Berber villages, delivering an authentic taste of Morocco’s rich history and culture.

 

Day 1: Fes - Ifrane - Midelt - Ziz Gorges - Errachidia - Merzouga Desert

Your adventure begins as we pick you up from your hotel in Fes. Traverse the captivating landscapes, starting with Ifrane, fondly known as the Switzerland of Morocco. The journey unfolds through the Middle Atlas and Higher Atlas mountains, featuring glimpses of the majestic cedar forest in Azrou, home to Barbary apes.

As you travel through Midelt and the Tizi Ntalghamt pass, the Ziz Gorges beckon with panoramic views. Descend towards Errachidia, savoring a Berber lunch. The lush Ziz Valley guides you to Erfoud before arriving in Merzouga. Welcomed with mint tea, a camel ride by an experienced guide immerses you in the golden sands of Merzouga. Dinner under the stars sets the stage for a night in a tent, surrounded by the tranquility of the desert.

Day 2: Merzouga – Rissani – Erfoud – Todra Gorges – Dades Valley

The day begins with an early rise for an unforgettable sunrise atop a dune, followed by a return to Merzouga for a heartwarming breakfast. Depart for Rissani, exploring its vibrant marketplace on market days. A visit to the fossilized marble workshops in Erfoud precedes a journey through Touroug and Tinjdad palm groves.

Arriving at the majestic Todra Gorges, carve out time for lunch amid this natural wonder. Stroll through the gorge to soak in its breathtaking scenery. The path leads to the Dades Valley, known as the figs valley. An evening at the Dadès gorges provides a serene backdrop for dinner and relaxation.

Day 3: Dades Valley – Ouarzazate – Ait Ben Haddou – High Atlas – Marrakech

As the day unfolds, enjoy panoramic views of the Dades valley from a strategic lookout. Journey through the Road of Thousand Kasbahs, embracing the Roses Valley and the Skoura palm grove. Ouarzazate awaits, offering a visit to the Kasbah of Taourirt and an option to explore cinema studios.

A short drive brings you to the iconic Ait Ben Haddou, a UNESCO-listed Kasbah with a storied cinematic history.
