3 days tour From Marrakech to Fez desert tour
Day 1: Marrakech – Aït Benhaddou – Ouarzazate – Rose Valley – Dadés Gorges
We will start from Marrakech before 8:00 in the morning, in order to drive to Ouarzazate- a former caravan town on the silk and salt route in the eastern foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Ouarzazate is also known as the Gateway to the Sahara..
Passing through the Berber town of Taddert and over the 2260 meters high Tizi n’Tichka mountain pass, we will move 30 kilometres from Ouarzazate, to the famous Aït Benhaddou Kasbah. Aït Benhaddou Kasbah has one of the most exciting red earth castles lining the ancient road of the Kasbahs (UNESCO world heritage site since 1987).
We will have our lunch at the Kasbah and continue on our way to Dadés Gorge via Ouarzazate, “The Hollywood of Africa”. We will pass through the “Road of the thousand Kasbahs” among the fascinating “Sand Castles”. Then we will continue our journey and stop at Kalaat M’Gouna, “The Rose’s City” known for roses and is most known for the “Roses Festival” which takes place in the city every year in May. We will then continue to the hotel in the heart of the Dadés Gorges, and enjoy a traditional Moroccan evening meal and breakfast for the next morning.
Day 2: Boumalne Dadès – Tinghir – Todra Gorge – Arfoud – Merzouga Dunes
After morning breakfast, our trip will lead us through the Dadés Valley and Todra Gorges, to explore the sites of this region. Lunch will be taken at any of the café on our way. Once we reach our final destination Merzouga, the camels will take us to the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi and then to our Berber desert camp. We will have our night stay, evening meal and following morning breakfast in the traditional Berber tents.
Day 3: : Merzouga – Rissani – Ziz Valley – Midelt – Azrou – Ifrane – Fez
We’ll wake up early in the morning to experience the beautiful sunrise in the desert. And then we will ride on our camels back from Erg Chebbi dunes to Merzouga.
After taking shower and breakfast at the hotel, we’ll start our Sahara tour. Returning to Fez, we’ll stop on the road to enjoy the beautiful landscape and take pictures, before we pass through the Middle Atlas Mountains again.
We will stop at Midelt; a town in central Morocco, in the high plains between the Middle Atlas and High Atlas mountain ranges, where we’ll have our lunch. Midelt is a very impressive mountain city at 1,508 metres of altitude, making it one of the highest large towns in Morocco. However, the principal water source of Midelt is a spring at the foot of Jbel Ayachi (3,757 m), one of the highest mountains in North Africa, and anchors the Eastern High Atlas in central Morocco.
In the afternoon, we’ll continue to the legendary city of Fez. Once we reach Fez, it is the end of the 3 days Marrakech to Fez desert tour.
