Day 1: Fes to Merzouga

Your journey begins with an early departure from Fes, Morocco’s cultural capital. As you leave the city behind, you’ll embark on a scenic drive through the Middle Atlas Mountains, passing through charming towns like Ifrane and Azrou along the way. Ifrane, often referred to as “Little Switzerland,” offers picturesque views of alpine-style architecture and lush greenery.

Continuing your journey, you’ll traverse the Ziz Valley, known for its verdant palm groves and dramatic landscapes. Finally, you’ll arrive in Merzouga, a gateway to the Sahara Desert. Spend the evening immersing yourself in the tranquility of the desert, marveling at the ever-changing colors of the dunes as the sun sets.

Day 2: Merzouga to Boumalne Dades

Rise early to experience the magic of a sunrise camel trek through the Sahara Desert. As the sun casts its golden rays across the dunes, you’ll embark on a journey that feels like a step back in time. After breakfast, bid farewell to Merzouga and begin your journey to Boumalne Dades.

The drive takes you through rugged desert landscapes and scenic oases, offering glimpses of traditional Berber villages along the way. Upon reaching Boumalne Dades, you’ll find yourself surrounded by towering cliffs and breathtaking views of the Dades Valley. Take some time to explore the area, perhaps hiking along the winding roads that snake through the valley.

As night falls, enjoy a peaceful evening in Boumalne Dades, soaking in the beauty of the starlit sky and the tranquil ambiance of the desert.

Day 3: Boumalne Dades to Marrakech

On the final day of your journey, depart from Boumalne Dades and begin your drive to Marrakech. The road winds through the majestic High Atlas Mountains, offering spectacular views of snow-capped peaks and lush valleys. Along the way, you’ll make stops at iconic landmarks such as the Todra Gorge, where towering cliffs rise dramatically from the desert floor.

Continuing your journey, you’ll pass through the ancient village of Ait Benhaddou, a UNESCO World Heritage site known for its well-preserved kasbahs and stunning desert scenery. Take some time to explore the winding streets and mud-brick buildings of this historic village before continuing on to Marrakech.

Arrive in Marrakech in the evening, where you’ll be greeted by the vibrant energy of the city. Spend your final night exploring the bustling souks, sampling delicious Moroccan cuisine, and soaking up the atmosphere of this captivating city.
