specializes in organizing exceptional tours from Marrakech to the captivating desert. Our journey begins at 8 a.m. as we depart Marrakech for the enchanting Dades Valley. Ascending into the majestic High Atlas Mountains, we reach the awe-inspiring Tizi n'Tichka pass, standing at an impressive altitude of 2,260 meters. The pass offers panoramic views that will take your breath away. During our expedition, we will take the time to immerse ourselves in the stunning natural scenery and engage with the vibrant Berber communities. Additionally, we will pause at a picturesque location for a delightful break, indulging in the flavors of coffee or refreshing mint tea.
In the afternoon, we will seize the opportunity to explore the renowned Ait Benhaddou Kasbah, an esteemed UNESCO World Heritage site and an iconic setting for numerous film productions. This Berber Kasbah holds great significance for international filmmakers, having served as a captivating backdrop for over 50 cinematic masterpieces. Furthermore, it played a vital role as one of the prominent defensive strongholds along the historic Salt Road, facilitating the transportation of slaves, money, ivory, and salt. You can still witness the remnants of salt pans in the valley, a testament to its intriguing past.
Continuing our expedition, we will journey through the prominent city of Ouarzazate, famously recognized as the "Hollywood of Africa." Following our exploration of Ouarzazate, we will venture towards the mesmerizing Dades Valley, passing through the enchanting locations of Skoura, Kelaat M'gouna, and the charming Berber settlements that grace the valley. As the day comes to an end, we will find rest and comfort in the captivating ambiance of Dades Valley, where we will spend the night.
After a delightful breakfast, we embark on an adventurous drive across the valley, unveiling the breathtaking rock formation famously known as 'the monkey fingers' due to its distinctive eroded terrain. Additionally, we will have the opportunity to marvel at the remarkable 19th-century Kasbah of Ait Youl that still stands as a testament to the region's rich history. Departing from the captivating Dades Valley, our journey continues towards Tinghir, leading us to the mesmerizing Todra Valley. Here, panoramic vistas await, offering glimpses of historic adobe Berber settlements gracefully perched atop the valley, creating a captivating sight to behold. As we venture further, we invite you to explore the magnificent Gorges nestled amidst the imposing 300-meter-high red cliff walls, a favored destination for avid rock climbers seeking thrills and natural wonders.
Our expedition continues to the charming towns of Erfoud and Rissani, where a delectable lunch awaits, providing a delightful culinary interlude. Energized and refreshed, we set off once again, this time bound for the remarkable hamlet of Merzouga, located in the heart of the Sahara Desert. Upon arrival, you will be warmly welcomed with a refreshing drink of mint tea before settling into your comfortable accommodation.
After a delightful breakfast, we embark on an exhilarating 4x4 excursion to explore the region, connect with its people, and gain insights into different ways of life. Our first destination is the captivating town of Khamlia, where we encounter the descendants of Sudanese slaves who passionately share their stories through the enchanting melodies of Gnaoua music. Not far from this settlement lies the Merzouga lake, a temporary abode for a seasonal flock of graceful flamingos. Take this opportunity to immerse yourself in the vibrant local culture by browsing through the diverse selection of authentic Berber handcrafts available for purchase, supporting local artisans and bringing home a cherished memento.
Following a delectable lunch and a brief respite, get ready for a mesmerizing camel ride as we venture into the vast expanse of the Erg Chebbi dunes, the largest in this part of Morocco. The sheer solitude and tranquility that envelops you as you traverse the red-golden dunes are truly awe-inspiring. Accompanied by an expert camel guide, you will navigate the captivating sand sea, immersing yourself in the captivating desert landscape. As the day draws to a close, we invite you to create lasting memories as you spend the night beneath the sparkling canopy of stars in a traditional Berber nomad tent. Indulge in a flavorsome dinner accompanied by captivating music and soulful singing, embracing the essence of the desert's enchantment.
Just moments before the sunrise, nature reveals its most enchanting spectacle. Awakened by your dedicated camel guide, you will rise early to witness a sunrise that may well be the most spectacular of your life. The captivating transformation of light as the sun ascends the horizon is simply breathtaking. After this awe-inspiring experience, we will embark on a camel ride back to the hotel, where a well-deserved breakfast awaits. If desired, you can also freshen up with a rejuvenating shower.
Our captivating journey continues towards Fes, taking us through the remarkable towns of Erfoud, Aoufous, and Errachidia. Along the way, we will traverse the mesmerizing Ziz Gorges, formed by ancient volcanic rock, and ascend the picturesque Tizi n'Talghemt pass, leading us to the town of Midelt. Here, we will pause for a delightful lunch accompanied by a refreshing cup of invigorating mint tea. As we enter the Middle Atlas region, known for its majestic cedar trees and the delightful Barbary monkeys that inhabit Azrou, we invite you to marvel at their playful antics as they occasionally snatch food from passing vehicles. Continuing our expedition, we will arrive at Ifrane, fondly referred to as 'Little Switzerland' due to its charming alpine-style architecture. Here, we will take a moment to capture a memorable photo and enjoy a cup of coffee. Finally, we will conclude our tour upon reaching the captivating city of Fes.
