Itinerary of the Morocco Desert Tour

The 10-day Morocco desert tour begins with a pick-up from Marrakech’s airport. Next we’ll take a quick tour of the city before transferring you to your hotel. A Riad welcomes you for an overnight stay.

Day 2: Marrakech – Essaouira

Following breakfast, we head west to Essaouira. We’ll stop along the trip to admire Argan trees and goats, as well as for panoramic vistas. We arrive at Essaouira, previously Mogador, one of Morocco’s most significant coastal cities, where we explore the fishing harbor, medieval defenses with cannons, and old medina. Essaouira will be our overnight stop.

Day 3: Essaouira – A Guided tour of Marrakech

Following breakfast, we will return to Marrakech to explore the highlights of Marrakech with a native guide.

The city is regarded as one of Morocco’s imperial cities. The tour includes the Bahia Palace, Saadian Tombs, the Ben Youssef Quranic Mosque, and a stroll through Morocco’s biggest traditional souk. After a lunch break at the Jemaa El-Fna square, we explore the Koutoubia mosque, Marrakech’s biggest, and the Majorelle garden. Finally, we will transport you to your hotel. Jemaa El-Fna Square is open for independent exploration.

Day 4: Marrakech – High Atlas Mountains – Telouat Kasbah – Ait Benhaddou – Ouarzazate

Pickup at the airport or your hotel in Marrakech signals the beginning of the tour early in the morning. Following that, we ride via the Tizi-N-Tichka pass and into the beautiful High Atlas mountains.

Following that, we’ll visit the well-known Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou, a walled hamlet that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Kasbah has appeared in films and television programs such as Gladiator, Alexander, The Mummy, and Game of Thrones. Our next stop is Ouarzazate, also known as “The Gate of the Desert,” which we arrive at via automobile. You’ll be staying at a hotel and eating at a restaurant.

Day 5: Ouarzazate – Skoura – Amridil Kasbah – Roses Valley – Dades Valley – Todgha Gorges – Merzouga

After touring the Atlas studios and Taourirt Kasbah, we proceed to Skoura’s Amridil Kasbah, which is surrounded by palm trees, and then to Rose Valley, where the Rose Festival is celebrated every May and inhabitants offer rose items. Following that, we traverse the Dades valley, pausing to admire the grandeur of the Dades gorges. We proceed to Todra Gorges for lunch.

We change to camels and ride through the arid desert after arriving at Merzouga in the late afternoon. A pause will be made on the highest point of a dune to enjoy the stunning sunset. We’ll take you to a desert luxurious tent where you’ll dance to Berber music over a campfire under the stars, have dinner, and spend the night.

Day 6: Merzouga region – Khamlia – Erg Chebbi

If you want to view the dawn in the middle of the desert, you must get up early. After breakfast, you ride camels back to Merzouga to meet your driver. We spend the day exploring the Merzouga region. Other fascinating attractions in the area include dunes, natural lakes, mines, fossils, and oases.

Driving off-road to an old eyeliner mine in Merzouga is where our journey officially kicks off. We then visit the nomads in their handcrafted tent. Our next trip is the Khamlia village, where you will see Gnaoua music and dance performances. Its inhabitants come from Sub-Saharan African countries.

After lunch, we take a walk through a canopy of palm trees before traveling to the Flamingo Lake, a wild lake in Merzouga, to explore.

Day 7: Merzouga – Erfoud – Midelt – Azrou – Ifrane – Fes

We travel to Rissani, Tafilalet’s ancient capital. Rissani, with its busy souk, is still an important economic centre in the region today. After touring the Rissani souk, we head to Erfoud to see one of the fossilized marble manufacturers.

We cruise along the Ziz river, stopping sometimes to admire the panoramic view of the Ziz valley. After lunch in Midelt, we head to the cedar forest to see the Barbary Macaques. You’re welcome to feed them while you go around the woodland.

Following that, we travel to Ifrane, which is noted for its chilly weather, snow, and alpine-style homes. Last but not least, we will transport you to your Riad in Fes.

Day 8: A guided tour of Fes

After breakfast, we will pick you up from your Fes lodging to tour the city. In addition to being the cultural and religious heart of Morocco, the city is regarded as one of the imperial cities.

We begin the day by seeing the Royal Palace entrance and the well-preserved medieval Medina, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Blue Gate, also known as Bab Boujloud, is the gateway to the ancient Medina. With the help of a local guide, you will enter Medina where you can see the Medrasa Bouanania, the Najjarine fountain, the Tanneries, and Al-Qarawiyyin University, the world’s first university. Following that, we depart Medina to see the Jewish district “the Mellah”. Afterwards, we go to a historic fortification for panoramic views of the surrounding area.

Day 9: Fes – Meknes – Volubilis – Chefchaouen

Following breakfast, we set off to see Meknes, the imperial city and capital of the Ismailis. Bab Al-Mansour, the Sahri Souani basin, the Royal stables, the granary, and the Moulay Ismail Mausoleum are all on the itinerary. Following lunch, we drive 30 kilometers south of Meknes to the ancient Roman remains of Volubilis. It has been properly kept because it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It features several exquisite mosaics spread throughout, as well as old pillars and archways.

After exploring the remains, we continue north through Ouazzane to Chefchaouen, the Blue City in the Rif Mountains. The city is well-known for its blue-painted houses and lanes. A hotel will be used for an overnight stay.
