Itinerary

Your 7-day journey will begin with a pickup from your hotel, Riad, or airport in Marrakech and will take you across the Atlas Mountains through the Tizi N Tichka pass. You'll stop to take shoots in the Berber villages and take a walk into some of them to get a sense of the Berber way of life. On the road, you'll see the Telouet kasbah, which dates from the 17th century.

We'll go to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Benhaddou Kasbah, where you'll dine at a local restaurant. In addition, we'll go to Ouarzazate, known as "the Gate to the Desert," where you'll see the Kasbah Taourirt and the Atlas Studios. This little city has welcomed numerous international filmmakers due to its location and the nearby castles. After being dubbed "Hollywood of Africa" by foreign filmmakers, the film industry started to thrive.

On our way to Dades Valley, we pass through Roses. Date with a traditional Moroccan lunch and spend the night in one of the Dades gorges' Riads or hotels.

After an appetizing breakfast at the riad, we'll go to the Todra gorges, where you'll have free time to meander under the 400-meter-high cliff and take in the vast views of Berber towns situated above the valley. Numerous mountain climbers come here to exercise and participate in their favorite activity.

Later, we will travel toward the breathtaking vistas of the Merzouga Sahara Oasis, where you will spend the night in a hotel by passing tinghir and Rissani cities.

This is an excellent day to see the desert sunrise early in the morning. The most spectacular sunrise you've ever seen will take place at the top of a dune near the camp, and it's well worth the trek. We ride camels back to Merzouga around daybreak, where a hearty meal awaits us.

We'll take a 4x4 off-road vehicle to the villages of Hassilabied and Khamlia after a short change of clothing. In this tranquil atmosphere, you will meet desert nomads and listen to live Gnawa music and singing. We can visit more oasis and off-the-beaten-path locations since we are off-road. After concluding with a visit to Rissani's souk, we will return to Merzouga by evening to catch the sunset in top of dunes and spend the night in tents under the sttary sky while the Gnawa music is display by musicians.

The following morning, you'll be woken early to witness one of the most beautiful sunrises on the globe. After that, you'll return to Merzouga while admiring the breathtaking beauty of the Erg Chebbi dunes.

After breakfast, you'll travel over the Ziz valley to Fes. You'll begin your journey at the fossil-rich town of Erfoud. Then, through the Oued Ziz and the Ziz Gorges, you'll make your way to the Tafilalt oasis. Along the journey, you'll stop in Errachidia for lunch and to enjoy true Berber hospitality.

We continue our trek through the Cedar Forest to Azrou, which means "rock" in the native Berber language. The endangered Barbary Apes live on this rocky slope, which is bordered by a thick cedar forest.

The next stop will be Ifrane, a tidy, modern city that has more in common with Switzerland than anyplace else in the Middle Atlas. In the mid-evening, you will be taken to a standard hotel or riad in Fes, where you will spend the night.

Fes is the oldest of Morocco's four imperial cities and is well worth a visit. Meet your local guide and begin your full-day tour of the city in the medina, which is the oldest in Morocco and dates back over a thousand years.

the city of Fes is divided into two sections: Fes el Bali and Fes el-Jadid. Talaa Kebira, or "the Great Slope/Climb," is one of Fes el-longest Bali's and most prominent streets.

Then, make a visit to the magnificent Al-Attarine Madrasa. This madrasa (school) lies near the Al-Qarawiyyin Mosque in Fes, Morocco. It was constructed by Marinid Sultan Uthman II Abu Said (1310-1331).

And don't forget to stop at El Mellah for a breathtaking vista before heading to Rabat the current capital city of Morocco in the evening of this day, there you will spend the night in a hotel.

Continue your seven-day desert adventure in Rabat, the historically important capital that houses the Kasbah of Oudaias, and then see Hassan Tower, an incomplete minaret. Discover the Roman and Islamic remains of Rabat's medieval fortress, the Chellah Necropolis.

Casablanca will be our next stop, where we will be able to see the second-largest mosque in Africa (the Hassan II mosque), which is well worth visiting with a panoramic perspective.  This wonderful mosque is located on the Atlantic coast. Casablanca offers a variety of things to see if you have time.

The sixth day’s night will be in a hotel in Casablanca, where you will stay and get rest to be fresh for the last day you still have in this wonderful journey.

A week in Morocco is almost completed, when you wake up in the seventh day of your tour, and after you eat your breakfast in the hotel, we will pick you to Marrakech as the last transfer, and according to your flight time, make a small tour around the red city of Marrakech if you still have time, visit the famous attraction like El Koutobia mosque, Jamaa Lafnna square, the old Median, and more to see there.
