Description

Begin with an early morning pickup from your accommodation in Fes. Cross the Saiss Plain and head toward the cedar forests of the Middle Atlas Mountains, passing Ifran and Azrou. Keep your eyes peeled for barbary apes on the side of the road and stop for some photos if you see them. Continue to Midelt, where you will stop for lunch. Then, carry on past the Ziz River and the thousands of tall palm trees to Erfoud, then on to Merzouga and Erg Chebbi, where your camel caravan will be waiting for you. Watch the colors of the sunset over the dunes as you ride on the back of a camel. Make your way back to the desert camp and freshen up before enjoying your dinner under the stars and listening to music performed by local musicians. Settle in for an overnight stay at the camp. Enjoy a sunrise camel ride before meeting your guide in Merzouga. Take in the views as you head to your next destination. Admire the oasis of Tinghir where you can take a walk along the banks of the Todgha River. Visit Berber Villages and learn about the local culture before you visit the Todgha Canyons and stop for some lunch. Drive along the Kasbah Road to Dades Valley where you can visit one of the fortified Kasbahs before arriving at your accommodation for the night where you will also have dinner. After breakfast, drive along the Valley of the Roses to Kalaa Mgouna. Visit one of the rose water cooperatives and learn how the locals prepare rose-scented perfumes based on distilled rose water. Continue to Ouarzazate past Skoura Oasis and on to Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou. Have lunch before visiting the Kasbah, a UNESCO World Heritage site that has been used as a set for various Hollywood movies, photoshoots, and commercials. In the afternoon, begin the descent through the Atlas Mountains passing by various Berber villages with houses built from stones and mud. Arrive in Marrakech in the late afternoon. Your driver will take you to your riad or hotel where the tour comes to an end.
