4 DAYS DESERT TOUR FROM MARRAKECH ITINERARY

Day 1: MARRAKECH \ HIGH ATLAS MOUNTAINS \ SKOURA \ DADES GORGES

A simple pick-up from your lodging kicks off your 4-day desert tour from Marrakech. We will travel across the magnificent High Atlas mountains via the Tizi-N-Tichka Pass as we depart from Marrakech. You can request stops at any time during the journey, and your knowledgeable guide and driver will make stops at the most picturesque locations.

After enjoying a delicious lunch in Ait Ben Haddou or Ouarzazate, we travel through the picturesque Rose Valley and Skoura on our way to Dades Gorges. You might choose to see the amazing Amridil Kasbah, one of Morocco's most striking fortified settlements, located in the verdant oasis of Skoura. If you happen to be traveling in the spring, we can also arrange a special visit to see the valley in full bloom, when it's decorated with an amazing display of roses.

Day 2: FES \ IFRAN \ MIDDLE ATLAS MOUNTAINS \ ZIZ VALLEY \ MERZOUGA DESERT

After a filling breakfast, begin your day with a beautiful drive along the Dades and Todra Rivers, which are flanked by Berber towns and palm trees. One of the most breathtaking valleys in the world, the Todra Gorge in Tinghir, is your destination! Proceed to the Merzouga desert after that.

Our driver/guide will recommend stopping at a traditional Berber shop before heading to the Erg Chebbi dunes in Merzouga. You can snap free photos there while dressed in Berber attire! You can purchase items like souvenirs or scarves that are perfect for the desert if you so choose. Recall that sharing the Berber culture is the shop's primary goal; purchasing anything is not required. If you are not interested, simply inform your driver or guide so you can bypass the business.

Prepare for a camel journey into the desert once you reach to Merzouga so you can try sandboarding and watch the sunset over the dunes. After that, spend the night in an opulent desert tent where you'll have a delectable dinner and take in the nighttime splendor of the Sahara.

Khamliya village, famous for its captivating Gnawa music, is located not far from the town. Here, we'll pause to let the alluring melodies of this Moroccan musical genre engulf us. Our next visit is Rissani, an ancient city that was a major stop on ancient caravan routes and is historically significant as the cradle of Morocco's present ruling family. Should Tuesday, Thursday, or Sunday fall on that day, we will have the chance to explore the city's authentic Moroccan souk.
