4-Day Marrakech to Fes Desert Tour Highlights

Day 1: Marrakech — Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou — Boumaine Dades

Embark on your 4-day Marrakech to Fes desert expedition with an early kick-off at 07:30 AM, heading towards the High Atlas Mountains via the enchanting Tizi Ntichka pass. Traverse the picturesque route, meandering through Berber villages that add to the scenic allure.
The adventure unfolds as you reach the UNESCO world heritage site, the Kasbah of Ait Ben Hadou, renowned for its cinematic presence in Gladiator and Game of Thrones sets. Engage in a guided exploration of the Kasbah led by a local Berber guide. Move forward to Ouarzazate, dubbed the Hollywood of Africa, where a potential pitstop at Atlas Film Studios beckons—home to one of the world's largest open-air film studios.
As the day progresses, trace the Kasbah route to the oasis of Skoura, famed for its impeccably preserved Kasbah, Amrdi, cocooned within a lush green palm tree oasis.
Cap off the day with a scenic drive along the road of 1001 Kasbahs and the rose-filled valley, culminating at your hotel nestled adjacent to Dadles Canyons.

Day 2 : Boumalne Dades — Tinghir — Merzouga

Embark on today's journey with a scenic drive to the historical oasis of Tnghir, once a strategic military post during the French occupation of Morocco. Not only does Tnghir carry the weight of history, but it also housed a significant Jewish community until the 1960s. Immerse yourself in the local atmosphere as you meet your guide for a leisurely walk through the oasis, tracing the stream and observing Berber locals tending to their fields. The walk concludes with breathtaking views of the Todgha Canyons.
As the day unfolds, our expedition advances to Rissani, a sacred city and the birthplace of the Alaouite Dynasty, which continues to shape Morocco's destiny. Explore the vibrant dates market, a testament to Rissani's rich heritage, before we proceed to Merzouga. Come evening, indulge in a delightful dinner and settle in for the night at one of the lodges, strategically located just a short distance from the majestic dunes of Erg Chebbi.

Day 3: Merzouga — Erg Chebbi

Indulge in a leisurely breakfast, and as the day unfolds, brace yourself for your inaugural encounter with the mystical Sahara desert. Climb aboard your vehicle and venture to the village of Khamlia, where the welcoming Berber nomads invite you to partake in a traditional cup of mint tea and savor the enchanting sounds of Gnawa music. Cast your gaze upon the vast Hamada, extending towards the rugged cliffs that delineate the Algerian borders on the distant horizon.
In the afternoon, the real desert adventure begins. Meet your camel caravan, select your trusty camel, and follow your experienced guide into the heart of the desert. Revel in the ever-changing hues of the Erg Chebbi dunes as the sun gracefully sets, providing a spectacular 360-degree panorama. Reach your Sahara desert camp just before darkness descends and settle into your comfortable tent. Dinner awaits under the twinkling stars, beside a warm campfire.
As night falls, take a stroll to the nearest dune to marvel at the crystal-clear sky or join the local nomads playing their rhythmic Tam Tam drums—an authentic experience beneath the vast expanse of the desert night.

Day 4: Merzouga — Midelt — Fes

Consider an early rise to witness the captivating sunrise from atop one of the sand dunes adjacent to your desert camp. Following a delightful breakfast, rendezvous with your driver for the journey to Fes.
Embark on an exploration along the picturesque Ziz Valley, renowned for its Ksours (fortified villages) and vibrant oases adorned with date palm trees. Your route unfolds to Midelt, nestled in the heart of the Middle Atlas Mountains, known for its thriving apple orchards and significant mining industry.
The expedition continues through the enchanting cedar forests of the Middle Atlas Mountains, with pit stops in Azrou to observe the playful Barbary apes and Ifran for a rejuvenating cup of coffee.
Late afternoon sees your arrival in Fes, as your 4-day Marrakech to Fes desert odyssey concludes. Bid farewell with a drop-off at your hotel or the nearest accessible point to your riad, marking the end of an unforgettable desert adventure.
