Route Map

Day 1

From the mountains of Marrakech to the magical Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou

The adventure begins at 8 in the morning when we'll pick you up directly from your accommodation in Marrakech. Feel the excitement in the air as we head towards the High Atlas Mountains, crossing the famous Tizi-N-Tichka pass. Prepare to be breathless before the panoramic views of the Berber villages and such unique landscapes that you'll want to stop to capture every moment.

And that's just the beginning. Later, we will immerse ourselves in the Ounila Valley, and history will come to life at the Kasbah of Telout. Imagine walking through the halls that were once dominated by the powerful Glaoui family. After exploring and understanding how King Moulay Hassan changed the region, you'll enjoy an authentic lunch in the charming village of Telouet.

But we're not done yet. We will travel through the beautiful Ounila Valley, tracing the ancient caravan route, feeling the echo of centuries past. And as a crowning touch, we'll arrive at the famous Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou, a place so impressive that it has been the setting for movies like Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator.

And the night? You'll spend it in a carefully selected hotel where you can relax and dream of the next day's adventures.

Are you ready to live this and much more? This is only the first day of a journey that will leave you with unforgettable memories and a unique connection with the essence of Morocco.

Day 2

From Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah to the stunning dunes of Erg Chigaga Sahara

In the morning, we'll start our journey from Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah towards the stunning sand dunes of Erg Chigaga Sahara Desert.

Along the way, we'll make a stop at the village of Taznakht, a place full of charm and tradition. Here you'll have the unique opportunity to visit the cooperative of women carpet weavers, a symbol of local identity.

We will continue to Foum-Zguid, the last refuge of civilization before plunging into the heart of the desert. After enjoying a lunch filled with local flavors, we'll enter the vast desert landscape, where rocks and sand dunes intertwine with hidden oases. The adventure will take us to the mysterious lake Iriqui, a mirror in the middle of nowhere.

Finally, we'll arrive at Erg Chigaga Sahara, the region's largest sand dunes, just in time to witness an unforgettable sunset that will color the horizon. Nature, in its purest state, invites you to live an experience you won't forget.

Day 3

Discover Zagora

The magic starts early today, with a waking up that will allow you to enjoy the astonishing sunrise from the high dunes of Erg Chigaga. Nature will greet you with its warmest colors as you prepare for another day of adventure.

After a nourishing breakfast, we'll set out towards Zagora, driving off the beaten path for 2 hours. We'll join the paved road in M'hamid El Ghezlane, but not before stopping at the charming oases and crossing mountainous passes full of mystery, such as Tizi Anagame and Mount Ben Selman.

The heart of our journey will be in the visit to the 16th-century historic village called Tamegroute. Here you will delve into the rich Moroccan tradition, visiting the Quranic school and its invaluable library, the astonishing underground Kasbah, and the famous green potters.

We'll end the day with a serene walk among palm groves and oases, arriving at the ancient Jewish quarter to explore the Kasbah of Amzerou. Your accommodation at a guesthouse in Zagora, on a half-board basis, will be waiting for you to provide comfort after a day filled with discoveries. An experience that combines nature, history, and culture, specially designed to satisfy your adventurous spirit!

Day 4

From Zagora to Todra: A journey between oases and canyons

Imagine waking up in mysterious Zagora and knowing that the day ahead is a blend of landscapes that will take your breath away. After breakfast, we'll begin our journey towards the imposing Todra Gorges, passing through the Draa Valley, an oasis filled with palm groves and ancient Kasbahs that tell stories of a time past.

We'll cross paths with Jbel Saghrou, a majestic volcanic mountain formation that contrasts perfectly with the green oases of the Draa Valley. Your gaze will be drawn to the small Berber villages that will accompany us until we reach the palm groves of Tinghir.

But here is where the adventure takes an exciting turn. From Tinghir, we'll head north, following the Todra River until we enter the famous Todra mountain gorge. Imagine rocky canyons rising 400 meters towards the sky, enormous palms, and a valley that seems taken from a fairy tale. Here you'll have the opportunity to stroll, feel the grandeur of nature, and capture photos that will stay in your memory forever.

When night falls, the Todra Gorges will offer you rest in a cozy guesthouse (on a half-board basis). A well-deserved pause after a day in which Moroccan nature has shown you its most beautiful secrets.

Day 5

From the Todra Gorges to Fez: A spectacular finale to your trip

Prepare yourself for the grand finale of this unforgettable adventure. After breakfast in the Todra Gorges, we'll begin our journey to Fez, crossing the majestic High Atlas Mountains, descending to Midelt, a place where the mountains seem to embrace the horizon.

We'll arrive at Midelt, known as "the apple capital," where we'll enjoy a lunch filled with local flavor. But the route still holds surprises: we'll continue through the Middle Atlas mountains until reaching the cedar forest. Here you'll have the opportunity to interact with the local monkeys, feeding them and sharing a unique moment.

The last stop is Ifrane, often called "the Swiss Morocco." Here you'll find a surprising postcard: houses with triangular roofs, wide streets, and an atmosphere that evokes Europe, especially when it snows during the season.

And finally, we'll arrive at Fez, where the tour ends around 6:00 pm at your accommodation. You will have completed a journey from Marrakech to Fez full of contrasts, culture, nature, and moments that will endure in your memory. Morocco has opened its doors and shown you its soul; now you carry a piece of this magical country in your heart.
