Day 1 : Marrakech - High Atlas - Ait Ben Haddou - Ouarzazate - Dades Valley:
Our joyful 3-day desert tour Marrakech to Merzouga will start by picking you up from your Accommodation or a certain meeting point. First of all, you will be traveling through one of the famous mountain ranges in the world, The Atlas Mountains range.
The first attraction that you will be exploring is the pass of Tizi nTichka (2260m), where we would stop and go visit some cooperatives of the Argan oil. Then, we will continue our way heading to visit a UNESCO world heritage site, Ait Benhaddou, a place that is famous for being a good spot for shooting movies with its unique towers and clay architecture. We will stop by this place to relax and discover it.
The 3-day desert trip from Marrakech to Merzouga continues, this time we will take you to have lunch in one of the best restaurants in Ouarzazate. This latter is a bit similar to the last one. The Hollywood of Morocco has the Atlas Studios where they make movies and rent the materials for that.

Day 2: Dades Valley - Todra Gorges - Merzouga - Camel Trek and overnight in Berber Camp:
Today, the second day of our 3-day desert tour Marrakech. After breakfast we'll enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the Dades Valley from one strategic lookout in the mountains, from there we can appreciate the great number of kasbahs and the scenic characteristics of each one. A very good asphalt road leads up the valley from the city of Tinerhir to the gorge and then to the desert.
After some stops on the way, we'll reach the Todra Gorges. The scenery is spectacular. Local people live in the area and can be seen in their adobe villages. Thanks to its rock sides with many uneven surfaces, these gorges are popular among rock climbers. After a short walk in the Todra gorges, you'll have free time for lunch in Tinejdad or Touroug.
Finally, we continue our way to the desert to reach the spectacular dunes of Merzouga. We'll take there a camel ride of one hour to our nomad camp located in the middle of a sea of dunes (Erg Chebbi). Before dinner, we'll see the sunset at the top of a dune for then sleep in a tent under a beautiful starry sky. End of the second day of our 3-day desert tour Marrakech.
Day 3 : Merzouga - Back to Marrakech:
Very early in the morning, we have a “Date with the sunrise”. In the middle of the desert, waking up early is a “must-do” to contemplate the most spectacular sunrise you've ever seen at the top of a dune close to the camp. Then we return to Merzouga on the camels where a delicious breakfast is waiting for us.
Having regained strength we start our last trip day going through the arid pre-desertic area where we'll meet the “acacia”, a typical tree of this landscape. On the way to the Draa valley, we'll make some stops to enjoy the beautiful views of the river that gives name to the valley. It's the longest river in Morocco, going through the whole country reaching Mauritania. Our trip continues towards Ouarzazate going through the Anti Atlas.
