Tour Plan

DAY 1 : Fez – IFRAN – MEROUZOGA

Departure from Fez at 8 a.m. passing through Ifrane, where the houses have sloping roofs, remarkable and unusual in Morocco. With the Berber geomorphological name, which means “stone” or “rock”, we can see Barbary apes in the oak and cedar forests of the Middle Atlas. From there, we drive along the N13 south over the Middle Atlas, passing by Timahdite (another Berber name, and since the word begins and ends with the letter “t”, it means it is feminine.) We reach Midelt, 1508M, which is called “the apple capital” of Morocco and is located at the foot of Ayachi mountain. The city serves as a commercial agricultural center for the surrounding areas and, is one of the main cities in Morocco for the extraction of several minerals, such as fluorite, vanadinite, quartz, and cerussite. Here where we will have lunch. We continue south through the Tizi-n-Talghemt pass known as the “camelle” pass. We are going down through the Ziz valley, particularly known for its palm trees and the length of the oasis. Along the road, there are numerous “ksars”, small villages of individual houses. From here we reach the mining town of Er Rachidia (copper and malachite for example) then Erfoud, famous for its date festival and fossils. It is fascinating to see how these millions of fossils have been transformed into artifacts and thus the shops are worth a visit. There is no obligation to buy anything! You continue towards Rissani and finally the famous Erg Chebbi red dunes in Merzouga. You will take a camel ride for an hour either, a departure from or towards the camp. There is also the possibility of taking the 4×4 to the camp. You dine and spend the night in a luxury camp with a private bathroom, king-size beds, beautiful Moroccan furniture, and lamps tastefully arranged to enhance your enjoyment of the silence and beauty of the dunes

DAY 2 : MERZOUGA – DADES GORGEST

If you wake up early enough, you can witness the spectacle of the sunrise, when the color of the dunes and the play of shadows is an impressive spectacle. After breakfast at the camp, we leave for Tinghir and the Toudgha Gorge. Along the way, you pass the water channels – “Khettarat” – in which you can descend to appreciate the architecture and genius of this form of irrigation which avoids evaporation in The heat of summer. The channels start at a higher gradient at one end until they finally emerge at the surface of the soil, where they are brought into the fields. You can learn more about these chains by reading Andrew Wilson’s work. In the gorge and valley, there are opportunities to walk beyond the gorge itself, or through the village gardens and fields before reaching it. Later, the route continues to the Dades Valley. The area, which now forms the Dades Gorge, lay at the bottom of the sea millions of years ago. Large amounts of sediments were deposited around the giant coral reefs and over time this material compacted into a variety of sedimentary rocks like sandstone and limestone. Finally, the movement of the earth the crust caused the region to rise above the sea, forming the Atlas Mountains and the surrounding landscape. The night is spent in a hotel or a kasbah.

DAY 3 : DADES GORGEST – ATLAS MOUNTAINS – MARRAKECH

After breakfast, the journey continues through the Valley of Roses, famous for its Rose Festival in May, and in front of the kasbahs of Skoura, where you can visit the interesting and intact small kasbah Amredhil, which once appeared on the 50 dirham note. From there, we continued to Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou is a World Heritage Site and the backdrop for many Hollywood blockbusters. He is the most famous Kasbah in Morocco. From there, we continue to Telouet, along the newly asphalted road. Telouet is located right in the middle of the mountains and was once the seat of the last Pasha of Marrakech, El Glaoui, from where the highest pass in Africa, Tizi-n-Tichka was controlled. In the late afternoon, we arrive in Marrakech. Your Moroccan desert tour from Fes to Marrakech comes to an end as the driver accompanies you to your riad
