What to Expect

Day 1: First day: Fez - Ifrane - Azrou - Arfoud - Merzouga

Stop At: Merzouga Desert, Merzouga Morocco
We will pick you up at your hotel and head to Merzouga, crossing the Middle Atlas and its cedar woods. This mountain chain stretches 350 kilometers from south-west to north-eastern Morocco.

On the way, you will pass by the village Iframe, also called the "Moroccan Switzerland" because of the architecture of its houses and because it is the most exclusive ski destination of the country. You will then stop in Azrou, one of the most famous Berber cities of Morocco.

The day will continue with the visit of the Ziz Valley and the Gorges du Ziz, where you will pass by villages such as Midelt or Arfoud. From Arfoud, you will take a desert road to reach Merzouga.

You will spend the night in a hotel near the dunes.
Duration: 2 hours

Meals included:
• Dinner
Accommodation included: night in a hotel near the dunes.

Day 2: Second day: the dunes of Erg Chebbi

Pass By: Erg Chebbi Dunes, Morocco
You will spend the second day enjoying the most spectacular part of the Eastern Sahara. You will enter the desert by 4x4, you will visit nomadic villages, you will see an oasis and you will cross the dunes of Erg Chebbi.

You will continue the day with the visit of the famous village of Khamlia, where you can meet gnaouas, a nomadic tribe descendant of African slaves and you will enjoy their surprising folk music.

At sunset, you will go to the hotel to ride camels that will take you to a Berber camp in the heart of the dunes, where you will dine and spend the night.

Day 3: Third day: Merzouga - Gorges de Todra - Ouarzazate

Stop At: Ouarzazate Le Riad & Tichka Salam, Boulevard Mohamed، BP 251، ورزازات 45000, Morocco
If there is something unforgettable in Morocco, it is the sunrise in the desert. After enjoying this moment, you will ride a camel to your hotel where you can shower and have breakfast (depending on the type of camp, breakfast and shower can be taken before the walk on camel back).

Back to Ouarzazate, you will pass by Rissani and Tafilalet, where was born the Alawite dynasty and former capital of the Alaoui sultans. You will then go to the Todra Gorges, where you can admire the valley from the hill, and the Dades Valley.

Leaving the Dades Valley behind us and taking the road of "kasbah miles", we will pass by the surprising Valley of Roses, known for its impressive rose culture and we will reach the Skoura Palm Grove. You will end the day in Ouarzazate, where you will spend the night.

After breakfast, we will leave behind Ouarzazate to visit the Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou, one of the most famous fortified cities in the world, made famous by films like Gladiator. You can enter the ruins of this kashbah to discover all its secrets.

You will continue the visit through a valley of almond trees and the Berber villages of Amerzgane, Agouim and Ighrem. We cross the Atlas through the incredible pass of Tizi n'Tichka, 2,260 meters high and we stop to eat in Tadart, another Berber village.
