Day 1 - Arrival to Marrakesh

You’ll have the day today to arrive to Marrakesh, where we’ll pick you up from the hotel and take you to the hotel. Depending on the time when you arrive, you could potentially spend some time in the marvellous Marrakesh today.

Day 2 - Marrakesh – Ait Ben Haddou – Dades Valley

Our Berber friends will pick us at the Airport to take us directly to the High Atlas mountains, crossing the mountain pass Tizi N’Tichka, stopping in the most picturesque points to take panoramic pictures of Berber villages that are surrounded by mountains. Ait Ben Haddou is a “must see” stop when descending. It is a fortified village where we will visit its famous Kasbah, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. After a lunch in the village, we will keep on going in the direction of Ouarzazate, which is considered the great gate of the desert and the place where many expeditions start. Afterwards we will depart towards Valley of Roses, passing huge date – growing palm trees. We will have dinner and a night in the Dades Gorge.

Did you know that…

-The word Marrakesh actually means “the land of God” in Bereber. This city is between the desert and the summit of High Atlas

-The legendary land of the 1000 moroccan kasbahs can be seen from the south of High  Atlas. The kasbahs, or fortresses, are built for defensive purposes

Ouarzazate and Ait Ben Haddou are also known as “the door of the desert” due to their picturesque character. Many well-known movies such as Gladiator, The Jewel of the Nile, and Sahara were shot here

Day 3 - Dades Gorge - Todra Gorges - Erfout -Merzouga Desert

After the breakfast we will visit a climber’s paradise: Gorges of Todra.  The channel of river Todra has formed a gorge with enormous vertical walls of great beauty: walking between this natural wonder will make you feel tiny! We will stop for an included lunch in a typical Moroccan restaurant and then we continue towards the impressive dunes of Merzouga. Once in Merzouga, after relaxing with a cup of tea, we will hop on our charming friends the camels  who will carry us for an hour and a half to the nomadic campsite called Haimas. Before a dinner celebrating the occasion, we’ll head up the dune and enjoy the peace and quiet that the night offers us. We’ll sleep in the Haima under a blanket of stars in the heart of the desert.

Did you know that…

– The Throat of Dades gets its name from the river that passes through it

– It’s an enormous throat or gap that extends many kilometers above sea level

– It is also known as the “Route of the 1000 Kashbahs”, showing the importance of this place

– Rissani is famous for its market. Locals initiated the market centuries ago and it still opens now on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays

– Rissani was the commercial center of the country in th 14th century and this tradition still stands

–  Even though Merzouga is in the middle of the desert, it is still full of tourism so you will be able to find every type of hotel and activity you could want!

Did you know that…

– Sand dunes only exist in soe places on earth, and only in tropical areas, and these areas are names Erg in Morocco

– The dunes are a result of the ‘weathering’ of the rocks which are broken by high temperatures to be turned into sand, which later the wind accumulates in specific areas to form dunes

– The Erg Chebbi is the biggest ERG of sand in Morocco, which is around 30 km in length and 8 in width. Inside the dune areas there is a number of collections of Haimas belonging to hostels which are open to tourist visits.
