Escape the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh on this two-day trek to the south of Morocco. Pass through the Atlas Mountains, visit a UNESCO-listed Kasbah, and ride on camels through the desert. Spend the night out in the desert at a campsite in the dunes.

Highlights

  • Pass through the snow-capped Atlas Mountains
  • See the sunset and sunrise in the desert from atop a camel
  • Spend the night in the desert and enjoy a feast at a Berber camp
  • Visit the UNESCO-listed ancient kasbah Aït Benhaddou

Description

Spend two days exploring mountainous and desert scenery, as well as traditional Moroccan cities and towns with an experienced guide.   Day 1: Depart from Marrakesh at 9:00 AM in a modern, air-conditioned minibus and head to the Atlas Mountains. Drive through the range, taking in magnificent views of the surrounding countryside and snow-capped mountains. You’ll soon arrive at the Kasbah Aït Benhaddou, an ancient fortified village that exemplifies Morocco’s traditional earthen clay architecture.   Afterwards, continue to Ouarzazate for lunch at a local café or restaurant. Continue on along the Drâa Valley to reach the town of Zagora. Here, you’ll meet your camels, who will take you on a 1.5-hour trek into the dunes. From atop these tall, sometimes graceful animals, you’ll get amazing views of the desert on your way to your camp in the dunes.   Day 2:  After a traditional Berber breakfast, head out just before sunrise on another 1.5-hour camel ride to get the best views of the changing colors of the sky. Head back to Zagora by camel and say goodbye to your traveling companion.   From Zagora, head back to the Atlas Mountains by minivan, with plenty of stops for photos and lunch. You’ll arrive at Marrakesh between 5:00 PM and 6:00 PM and be taken to your hotel.
