Day 1 : Marrakech – High Atlas – Ait Ben Haddou – Ouarzazate – Dades Valley:
Get picked up from your accommodation in Marrakech at 8 o’clock in the morning, and depart towards the High Atlas Mountains, the Moroccan Sof Atlas, passing through the Tizi N’Tichka pass with stops for panoramic views and taking photos of the small Berber villages that blend into the landscape Then we continue south to the ksar (fortified village) of Ait Ben Haddou, where we will visit the famous Kasbah (declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986). Famous movies have been filmed on this spectacular stage, including Gladiator, Obelix, The Mummy, The Jewel of the Nile, Sahara with Penelope Cruz…etc. Free time for lunch in the city. Then we continue to Ouarzazate also known as “The door of the desert” which in the Berber language means “silent or without confusion”. Here we will see the kasbah Taourirt, one of the most spectacular ksars in Morocco. The next site to visit is the Valley of the Roses that crosses the great palm grove of Skoura; A beautiful place to contemplate more than 700,000 palm trees and numerous kasbahs that are built in the surroundings. In this valley, damascene roses are bred for cosmetic use, such as valuable rose water. The Rose Festival is held here annually in May, it is an important museum for Moroccan culture. Finally we arrive at the Dades valley where we will spend the night.
Day 2 : Dades Valley – Todra Gorges – Merzouga – Camel Trek and accommodation in the Berber camp:
After breakfast, we will enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the Dades Valley from a strategic viewpoint in the mountains, from there we can appreciate the large number of kasbahs and the scenic characteristics of each one. A very good asphalt road leads into the valley from the city of Tinerhir to the gorge and then into the desert. After a few stops on the way we will reach the Todra Gorges. The landscape is spectacular. Local people live in the area and can be seen in their adobe villages. Thanks to their rocky sides with many uneven surfaces, these gorges are popular with climbers. After a short hike through the Todra Gorges, you will have free time for lunch in Tinejdad or Touroug and then we will continue our way into the desert to reach the spectacular dunes of Merzouga. We will take a one hour camel ride to our nomad camp located in the middle of a sea of dunes (Erg Chebbi). Before dinner we will watch the sunset on top of a dune and then sleep in a tent under a beautiful starry sky.
Day 3 : Merzouga Dunes – Draa Valley – Anti Atlas Mountains – Ouarzazate – Marrakech:
Very early in the morning we have a “date with the sunrise”. In the middle of the desert, waking up early is a “must do” to watch the most spectacular sunrise you’ve ever seen on top of a dune near camp. Then we return to Merzouga on the camels where a delicious breakfast awaits us. Once we recover our strength, we begin our last day of the trip crossing the arid pre-desert area where we will meet the “acacia”, a typical tree of these landscapes. On the way to the Draa Valley we will make a few stops to enjoy the beautiful views of the river that gives the valley its name. It is the longest river in Morocco, it crosses the hole that reaches Mauritania. Our trip continues towards Ouarzazate passing through the Anti Atlas. We will have some free time to have lunch in the city and in the afternoon we will start our way back to Marrakech arriving at 8 p.m. Transfer to the hotel and end of our services.
