Embark on an unforgettable journey from Marrakech to Fes with our tour. Experience the unique beauty of Morocco as you traverse the High Atlas Mountains, visit historic sites like Ait Benhaddou, explore stunning gorges, and immerse yourself in the breathtaking Sahara Desert. Throughout the tour, you'll be accompanied by an experienced local guide who will provide insights into the region's history, culture, and traditions. Day 1: Marrakech — Ait Ben Haddou — Dades (1st night at Kasbah Amazigh) Start your tour with an early pickup. Meet your driver at your hotel or riad in the morning before crossing the High Atlas Mountains towards Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou. After a guided walk in the village, enjoy a leisurely lunch in Ait-Ben-Haddou. In the early afternoon, travel northeast to Boumalne Dades via Ouarzazate. Take a drive along the Dades River with the marvelous sunset as your backdrop. Reach the way to Dades Valley and make a pit stop to enjoy the amazing scenery. Then, continue to a hotel where you will dine and rest for the night at Kasbah Amazigh. Day 2: Dades — Todgha Gorge — Merzouga Desert Start the day with breakfast at your hotel. Set out on a journey along the road of 1001 Kasbahs to Tinghir, an oasis where you will have the opportunity to enjoy an hour-long walk by the river bank all the way to Todgha Gorges. Here, get some free time to enjoy the scenery before lunch. Early in the afternoon, walk to Merzouga, where your camel caravan awaits. From here, ride your camel through the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi while enjoying a mesmerizing sunset. Before dark, reach your Sahara desert camp nestled between the dunes, where you will eat a Moroccan dinner under the stars while being entertained by local nomads playing their drums around the campfire. After the campfire, relax in your standard or luxury tent, depending on which one you choose. The standard tents are basic accommodation, while a private tent is subject to availability. The toilets are right outside, with facilities to freshen up in a shared room. If you choose the luxury tent, it is located in a more isolated and scenic area, providing extra comfort, and a guaranteed private tent with flushable western toilets, hot showers, and a rich dinner and breakfast. Day 3: Merzouga - Ziz Valley- Ifran - Fes Get woken up by your desert hosts if you wish to watch the sunrise. After breakfast, drive along the Ziz River with its amazing oasis lined with palm trees and fortified ksours (castles) all the way to Midelt, a small town in the middle of the Atlas Mountains, your lunch stop for the day. In the afternoon, continue crossing the Middle Atlas Mountains towards Fes. Notice a dramatic change in the landscape: snow-capped mountains, cedar forests, and rich vegetation, a complete 180 from the arid and rocky landscapes of the rest of the tour. End your Marrakech to Fes desert tour in the early evening as your driver takes you to your riad or hotel in Fes.
