Marrakech tour detailed Map:
We will depart the riad at 7:00 a.m. and embark on a journey south into the majestic High Atlas Mountains via Tizi-n-Tichka, the highest mountain pass standing at 2,260 meters/7,500 feet. Along the way, we will pause to immerse ourselves in the breathtaking vistas that unfold before us.
Soon, we will reach the charming Berber villages, where residents reside in adobe houses. Taking a detour onto a smaller route, we will traverse a stunning, multicolored landscape. Our next destination is the historic Ait Benhaddou hamlet, recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and renowned for its appearance in popular films like Gladiator, Obelix, Jewel of the Nile, and Sahara, featuring Penelope Cruz. Continuing our drive to Ouarzazate, known as the gateway to the desert and the starting point for various treks, we will arrive at our destination. Crossing the Anti Atlas Mountains, our journey proceeds through the arid and chilly Draa Valley, where we will make several stops along the route, savoring the beauty of the valley.
The Draa Valley is home to the longest river in Morocco, which shares its name with the valley. Upon arriving in the picturesque Nkoub hamlet, we will savor a delightful lunch before entering the enchanting Merzouga desert. After lunch, our path leads us to Rissani, one of the holiest cities in Morocco and the birthplace of the esteemed royal dynasty of Morocco, the Alaouites. Rissani also marks the starting point of the ancient trade routes that traversed the Sahara to Tomboctou.
From there, we embark on a thrilling journey across rugged terrain, eventually arriving at the mesmerizing desert of Merzouga, where our camel caravan awaits. As we ride our camels across the Erg Chebbi dunes, we will witness a breathtaking sunset before returning to our Sahara desert tent, secluded in the heart of this magical landscape. After a delectable supper, we will gather around the campfire, immersing ourselves in the enchanting rhythm of traditional Berber drumming beneath the starlit sky.
The sunrise above the mesmerizing Erg Chebbi dunes in Merzouga creates an unforgettable experience during the tour. After enjoying a delightful breakfast in the camp, you will depart from the dunes either on camels or by 4x4 vehicle before returning to the camp. Upon reaching Tinghir, an incredible opportunity awaits to explore the Toudra Valley and the renowned Path of 1000 Kasbahs, offering a captivating drive through the ksours. Continuing our journey, we venture to the Dades Valley and the renowned Rose Valley, where a visit to one of the rose growers' cooperatives awaits. Here, you will discover the fascinating process of blending rose water with rose distillate to create exquisite rose fragrances.
To reach Ouarzazate, widely recognized as the "gateway to the Sahara" and renowned for its filming locations, we will traverse the stunning Tizi-n-Tichka pass nestled in the majestic Atlas Mountains.
Our tour concludes as we arrive in Marrakech during the late afternoon, where our professional team will drop you off at your Riad or hotel.
