Then we will take another walk through the gorge and get ready to head for Merzouga. We arrive in time for dinner and sleeping overnight in the hotel.
After breakfast, we will begin our journey by taking a 4×4 vehicle for almost 4 hours into the desert, where you witness the many faces of the dunes. We will pass through many small villages and will stop in one, el Khamlia, to experience the people play Saharan music and African songs. We will then continue to Rissani, the home of the Alaouite dynasty. After enjoying the local food for lunch, it’s time to head back out to the desert. Here you may have a chance to try out sandboarding for the first time or have a sweet mint tea while taking in the scenery. From there we will head out on camels to Erg Chebbi for an unforgettable night full of dinner, songs, and dancing. Be prepared to sleep in a traditional Berber tent under the million stars in the sky.
There are dunes just outside of Merzouga where you can get up early and watch the sunrise. After this, it is time to ride the camels back to the hotel for showering, breakfast, and rest. Today we will begin our journey towards Fez, which will lead us through Rissani, lunch at an apple village in Midelt, and across the Atlas Mountains to Ifrane, a non-Moroccan style ski resort built by the French. We will reach Fez by the afternoon, just in time for some resting and dinner.

As we continue exploring, we will make a short stop at Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail, which for the longest time was the only mosque in Morocco that allowed non-Muslims. Just as we check out “Dar Jamai,” the Museum of Moroccan Art, we then depart Meknes and arrive in Volubilis and experience the ancient Roman ruins that are there, which gives us a glimpse into what life was like in Roman empire. We will reach Chefchaouen around afternoon; there may be some time for free roaming before dinner and rest for the night.
