and transfer to a traditional hotel in the medina.
Day 2: Marrakech – Ouarzazate – Skoura – Dades Valley
From your hotel in Marrakech we will take you up into the mountains of the High Atlas, along high peaks and vast panoramas, while driving through traditional Berber villages. After crossing the Tizi-n-Tichka Pass (2260m), you descend to the provincial city of Ouarzazate, famous for its film studios. After a stop, you continue across open plains, passing date palm oases and the Kasbah of Skoura, with the impressive M’Goun Mountain Range in the background. Arrival in Dades Valley in the late afternoon, the best time of the day, as the sun shines brilliantly on the spectacular red rock formations of the ‘Monkey’s Fingers’ and the mountains beyond. You will spend the night in the Dades Gorge at a comfortable auberge.
Day 3: Dades Valley – Todra Gorges – Erfoud – Merzouga – Camel Trek – Desert Camp
We leave the Dades Valley behind us and continue to the centre of Tinerhir. Here we take a detour to visit the huge palm oasis and stroll through the famous Todhra Gorge – a must-see in this area! We then head out towards the Sahara Desert, past stunning Kasbahs, stopping at Erfoud to visit its renowned Fossil Museum, featured in David Attenborough’s recent BBC TV series about the origins of life on earth. After a short ride, we take a break to enjoy a cup of local tea at the foot of the golden dunes of Erg Chebbi in the Sahara. Time then for your next and unforgettable adventure: a 2-hours-trek with a camel to the heart of the desert, guided by a nomadic camel driver! Enjoy the splendour of colour on the dunes and the spectacle of light and shadow on the sand through the light of the setting sun. Breathtakingly beautiful! The journey brings you to a desert camp with traditional nomad tents, where you can relax, have dinner, listen to traditional music around the camp fire, or wander into the dunes and marvel at the shining stars…
Day 4: Sahara Desert – Rissani – Kalaa Mgouna – Marrakech
Wake up early to see the sunrise over the dunes – it is really fun to climb the nearest dune to admire all this! Enjoy breakfast in your camp before a 45-minute camel ride back to your car, which awaits you at a hotel, offering a second breakfast and the opportunity to take a shower. We drive back to Marrakech and stop over kalaa for lunch. During the trip, we can stop at any time to take pictures of some beautiful spots. In the late afternoon, arrival at your hotel in Marrakech.
