FEZ – DESERT OF MERZOUGA – MARRAKECH
3 days / 2 nights
Amanecer en Merzouga
Day 1: Fez- Merzouga
Reception in your riad / hotel at 8am. We will go south towards the desert of Merzouga, via Ifrane (known as the Moroccan Switzerland, this is due to the similarity to this country for its architecture). We will pass through Azrou and cross the Cedros Forest where we will stop to feed the monkeys that live in freedom. We will have lunch in Midélt and in the afternoon we will continue through the Ziz Valley, more than 20 km of palm grove that makes it one of the largest in the world. As soon as we get to Merzouga, the camels will be waiting for us to start the tour with them, going into the heart of the dunes and watch an unforgettable sunset, until we leave the camels in our camp where we will spend our first night of the tour in a Jaima, as the nomads of the area live.
Day 2: Merzouga – Dades Valley
We will get up early to marvel at the sunrise offered by the great dunes that surround us. We will return with the dromedaries, to the hotel that is on the edge of the dunes and we will have a good breakfast to start again the route to the Dades Valley. With our 4x4 transport, we will stop at Rissani where we will visit its great market, famous for being the only one at those altitudes and where all the nomads go to stock up (market days: Tuesday, Thursday or Sunday). We will continue in the direction of the city of Erfoud, where if you want you could stop to visit the fossil factory. On the way we will cross the palm plantations of Tourog and Tinjdad. We will continue our route to the fantastic Gorges of Todra, where we will take a walk and take lunch. The channel of the Todra River has formed a defile of vertical walls of enormous proportions and great beauty, where lovers of climbing enjoy this great paradise. Once we finish the lunch we will leave in the direction of Dades, also known as the Valley of the figs, passing through Boumalne Dades and stopping at the ‘Patas del mono’. We will stay in the Dades Valley in a hotel / riad.
Day 3: Dades Valley – Valley of the Roses – Ourzazate – Marrakech
Once you have enjoyed the breakfast, we will drive to Ouarzazate, but not before making a stop where you will have the best views of Dades Valley and some Kasbah. We will make different stops along the way to take pictures of the famous route of the Thousand Kasbahs, crossing the Valley of Roses. We will visit the Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou (known for the different films that have been recorded in the area, such as: Gladiator, Obelix, etc). After the visit we will continue to Ouarzazate, where we will have lunch. Before arriving in Marrakech we will experience the view of the Tizi N’Tichka port at 2,260m.
In the afternoon arrival in Marrakech and end of our services.
