Luxury desert tour from Marrakech to Fes itinerary:

Day 1: Marrakech - Zagora:

On the first day of our luxury desert tour from Marrakech to Fes, you will depart from Marrakech before 8 am on a 4x4 or minivan. Your final destination for this day will be Zagora. This tour will take you through the stunning High Atlas Mountains and through Tizi n’Tichka. We will visit the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou where you are admitted for free. From here the journey continues to Ouarzazate – the Hollywood of Morocco.

The next move will be the trip to Zagora through the scenic yet winding valley known as Draa Valley. Zagora is a mountainous city in the south-eastern section. Once there you will have the chance to unwind a bit before enjoying an exploratory camelback ride across the dunes until sunset. After your sunset camel ride, you can enjoy a bonfire at the Berber camp where you will be spending the night.

There will be nightly entertainment in the form of a bonfire and a music show. There will also be a traditional Berber dinner before you retire to your tent for the night. If you would like to sleep under the stars here you are welcome to do so.

Day 2: Zagora - Dades Valley:

We wake up in the desert with the nomads heating up a traditional breakfast, a beautiful sunrise coming up over the dunes, and the camels getting prepared for our trek back into Zagora. Our trip continues on the Gateway to the Desert City of Ouarzazate, where we shall enjoy lunch (at any café) and take our vehicle for the next leg of our adventure into the Dades Valley.

It is on the second night of our luxury desert tour from Marrakech to Fes, where we will stay in the comfort of a guesthouse with private rooms and bathrooms attached. There will be a splendid evening meal to round off this evening, so everyone will feel fresh and revived for day three. The guesthouse is in the heart of the Dades Valley, so you’ll be able to wake up surrounded by golden, sandstone, and picturesque valley vistas.

Day 3: Dades Valley - Merzouga:

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 and then 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.

Day 4: Merzouga - Fes:

The camels will transport us back to Merzouga after breakfast, along the same routes we took during sunset. On this final morning, however, you will be able to experience the rising sun over the dunes – which is every bit as exciting as the sunset.

The journey to Fes is our final leg of this adventure, and it will begin with breakfast at a hotel and an amazing drive to take you all the way to this great Saharan city. We will have lunch on the way and arrive in Fes sometime between 6.00 pm and 7.00 pm. End of your 4-day luxury desert tour from Marrakech to Fes.
