4 days tour from Marrakech to Fes through high atlas mountain and Sahara desert of Erg Chebbi.

Day 1:Marrakech - Ait Ben Haddou - Dades Gorge

Heading south through the mountainous Tizi NTichka pass, towering at an altitude of 2,260 meters, we’ll be treated to stunning vistas and breathtaking scenery. As we traverse about 40 kilometers from Ouarzazate, we’ll reach the illustrious Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This ancient fortified city, or ksar, offers a glimpse into traditional pre-Saharan architecture, still inhabited to this day. Ait Benhaddou has also served as a backdrop for numerous films and series, including Game of Thrones, Kingdom of Heaven, and Babel. Continuing our journey south, we’ll arrive in Ouarzazate, often referred to as the Hollywood of Morocco. Here, we’ll explore the Kasbah of Taourirt, once controlled by the Glaoui family as a vital stop on the Saharan Caravan Route to West Africa. Admire the intricate ceilings of this restored Kasbah, paying homage to the influential pashas of Marrakech. From Ouarzazate, we’ll head east towards the enchanting Dades Gorges, traversing breathtaking roads and passing through charming villages such as Skoura, K’laat M’Gouna, and Boulmane Dades. Skoura, renowned for its vast oasis, is aptly named the ‘Oasis of 1000 Palms.’ In K’laat M’Gouna, we’ll explore the heart of the rose industry, where fragrant petals are harvested for perfumes, lotions, and oils. Our journey then leads us to the dramatic Dades Gorge in Boumalne Dades, where winding roads meander along limestone cliffs, offering striking views of sculpted erosions and breathtaking scenery.

Day 2:Dades Gorge - Todra Gorge - Merzouga

Todra Gorge, with its awe-inspiring grandeur, earns its reputation as the Moroccan Grand Canyon. Its colossal pink-grey rock walls, which transform in hue with the shifting sunlight, create a breathtaking spectacle. In Erfoud, known as the City of Fossils, we’ll visit a local cooperative to witness the fascinating process of transforming fossils into exquisite furniture, home décor, and personal accessories like bracelets and necklaces. Continuing our journey into the Saharan desert, we’ll have the exhilarating opportunity to embark on a camel ride through the dunes for two hours. As the sun begins its descent, we’ll gather to witness the mesmerizing sunset over the vast desert landscape. Later, after a satisfying dinner, we’ll immerse ourselves in the rich local culture, enjoying traditional music and dance under the twinkling starlit sky. Finally, we’ll retire to our cozy tents for a night spent amidst the tranquility of the desert.

Day 3:Merzouga - Khamlia - - Merzouga

We’ll rise early to witness the breathtaking spectacle of the sunrise painting the Sahara dunes with golden hues. After soaking in this magical moment, we’ll return to the hotel for a hearty breakfast and a refreshing shower. Our adventure continues with a tour of the desert dunes, following the legendary Paris-Dakar rally path. Along the way, you’ll marvel at the ever-changing contrasts of the desert landscape, from rolling dunes to rugged terrain. Next, we’ll visit the “black village” of Khamlia, known for its vibrant Gnawa music scene. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the mesmerizing rhythms and melodies of this traditional music. For lunch, we’ll indulge in a delicious traditional Berber pizza in Khamlia, savoring the unique flavors of local cuisine. After lunch, you’ll have the option to explore the traditional markets, soaking in the vibrant atmosphere and discovering local treasures. Alternatively, you can relax at one of the charming cafes, sipping coffee and observing the bustling day-to-day life of the city.

Day 4:Merzouga – Erfoud - Midelt - Ifrane – Fes

After two unforgettable nights in the enchanting desert, we’ll begin our journey to Fes. Along the way, we’ll pass through several cities, starting with Erfoud, known as the City of Fossils, where we can explore local cooperatives and learn about the fascinating process of fossilization. Continuing on, we’ll traverse the scenic Ziz Valley with its breathtaking gorges and lush landscapes. Our journey will take us through cities like Midelt, renowned for its delicious apples, where we’ll stop for a delightful lunch break. After refueling with a delicious meal, we’ll resume our journey towards Ifrane, often referred to as the “Switzerland of Morocco” due to its picturesque landscapes and charming architecture. Ifrane is also a popular ski resort nestled in the Middle Atlas region, offering stunning vistas and opportunities for outdoor adventures. During our stop in Ifrane, we’ll take a leisurely coffee break, allowing us to soak in the tranquil atmosphere of this beautiful town. As we continue our drive, we’ll marvel at the diverse flora and fauna of the region, including the threatened Barbary Macaque and native Atlas cedar trees. Finally, we’ll arrive in Fes, where we’ll conclude our day’s journey, ready to explore the rich history and vibrant culture of this ancient city.

Great excursion, great guide! We went on a 5-day excursion with Marrakech Expedition, from Marrakech to the desert near Merzouga and back. Everything was very well planned, we were taken to the main sites and places, all the hotels they booked for us were excellent. Our guide, Mohammed was really great, an expert driver and a great guy to talk to, we really enjoyed the time we spent travelling with him. Highly recommended!

Great! We travelled with our two little kids, 3 and 6, on a 8 day trip through Morocco using the driver service of Marrakesh Expeditions. Omar, our driver, was excellent! Very kind and patient with the kids, suggesting interesting places to visit on the way to our planned destinations and helping us with whatever we needed. An unforgettable experience for us, the kids can’t wait to visit this beautiful country & people again. Thanks a lot!

Amazingly enjoyable trip through Morocco Wonderful trip organised for us which afforded us understanding & views of Moroccan landscapes, country, culture and people. Excellent accommodations chosen in amazing Rhiads for us. Excellent restaurants for all meals were organised for us. Excellent cultural stops and shopping opportunities. Excellent guides very knowledgable, local and with good English. Driver Moha was excellent driver & kept us on time and enjoying everything at the same time. Superb custom trip in an incredibly interesting country. The only thing at all negative was the first night’s accommodation in Casablanca (very late arrival through incredible traffic after our flight, no dinner available, apparently nowhere to purchase bottled water except from the waiter, and room was very noisy on main roads with hotel staff unhelpful. ) Would recommend this company and their tour planning. Had an amazing trip. Loved it.
