1st Day : Marrakech – High Atlas – Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah – Ouarzazate – Dadés Valley

Pick up at 8 am from your accommodation in Marrakech to the High Atlas, sub-mountain of Moroccan Atlas Mountains, during our journey we will go through the port of Tizi N’Tichka with stops for a panoramic view and take pictures of the small Berber villages camouflage in the landscape. Then we will continue south to the ksar (fortified village) of Ait Ben Haddou where we will visit the famous Kasbah (declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986 ) whose famous films have been shot in this spectacular stage, including Gladiator, Obelix, The Mummy, The Jewel of the Nile, Sahara with Penélope Cruz … etc. Free time for lunch in town. Then we continue to Ouarzazate, also called “The door of the desert”, which means in Berber “without noise or confusion”. We will see here the kasbah of Taourirt, one of the most spectacular ksars of Morocco. The next destination to visit is the valley of roses crossing the large palm grove of Skoura; a beautiful place to contemplate more than 700 000 palm trees and many kasbahs built in the vicinity. In this valley, damascene roses are cultivated for aesthetic purposes such as precious rose water. The feast of the rose is held here every year in May, it is an important moussem for the Moroccan culture. Finally we will go to the Dades Valley where we will spend the night

2nd Day : Dadés Valley – Todra Gorges – Merzouga – Camel Trek and overnight in berber camp

We start our second day with a breakfast , and enjoying one of the most beautiful views of the Dadées 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 , it s time for lunch in Tinejdad or Touroug.after lunch  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 the dinner we´ll see the sunset at the top of a dune for then sleep in a tent under a beautiful starry sky.

3rd Day : Merzouga Desert – Ziz Valley – Cedar forests and monkey troupes of Azrou – Fes

Get up very early in the morning to enjoy the sunrise. In the middle of the desert, it is a “must” to contemplate  the most spectacular sunrise ever seen at the top of a dune near the camp. Then we take the road to Merzouga on the camels and a delicious breakfast awaits us. Once ready, we start our last day north by the palm of Tafilalet, the largest in the world. You will see thousands of palm trees along the 20 km of road. This path leads us to the Ziz valley, a river that descends from the High Atlas and feeds the palm grove. We stop here and enjoy a magnificent view of the valley and the city of Aoufous from this elevated point of view. We make another stop at Midelt, in the heart of the Atlas, where you will have free time to have lunch and rest a little. in the afternoon, we continue our way through Cedar Woods where, if we are lucky, we will see monkeys. Our next destination will be the city of Ifrane, located on the northwest side of the Middle Atlas at 1630 meters above sea level. Its wide avenues, perfectly clean urban development, gardens, green spaces and architecture make this city a Swiss city. Ifrane feels badly placed in Morocco. That’s why it’s called Moroccan Switzerland, and if that’s not enough, it has a major ski resort, Michlifen, Around 18 hours, we arrive in Fez, transfer to the hotel and it is end of our services
