Tour Plan

Day 1: Fes – Ifrane - Azrou – Midelt – Merzouga – Erg Chebbi Dunes

Your Fes to Marrakech desert tour 3 days  will begin with a pick-up from your riad or hotel. We'll then travel over the Middle Atlas Mountains to Ifrane and Azrou. We'll make a stop in the cedar forest along the road to observe the barbarian apes in their native environment. We will drive over the Tizi N Talghamt pass to Midelt and along Ziz Gorges. You will notice views of Middle Atlas and the landscapes shifting to reveal hints of the desert as you get closer to the city of Errachidia.

After lunch, we'll continue traveling through the Ziz Valley to Erfoud, Rissani, and Merzouga. When we arrive in Merzouga, we'll enjoy a cup of mint tea and leave our belongings in a secure place, and then ride camels to a camp in the middle of the tallest sand dunes in North Africa, the Erg Chebbi Sand Dunes. The camel trek to the camp, where we will spend the night in the desert takes about an hour and a half.

The tents are fully furnished with pillows, blankets, and beds. We shall assemble around the fire, following dinner to listen to the sounds of traditional Berber drums while gazing at the sky. The first day of our 3 Day Fes to Marrakech Desert Tour has come to a conclusion.

Day 2: Merzouga desert - Erfoud - Tinghir - Todra Gorges - Dades Valley

The second day of our Fes to Marrakech desert tour 3 days. After a sumptuous breakfast and a fresh shower at the camp, we will see a magnificent sunrise over the sea of dunes. Then, we'll ride camels or, as an alternative, a 4WD car back to Merzouga.

Then, we will depart from the Sahara desert and travel to Tinghir, also known as "the city of the mountain," in Tamazight. Here, in this  lovely Berber village, we will be delighted by the contrast between their palm trees and the unusual color of their homes.

We reach the Todra gorges, which were carved out by 200-meter-high walls. We'll take a trip around those stunning, confined Gorges. After spending a wonderful moment in the Gorges,  We will travel to the Dades Valley, a Berber village renowned for its steep gorges and its views over the Atlas. Finally, we'll spend the second night in a charming riad during the 3-day desert trip from Fes to Marrakech.
