Itinerary of Fes desert Tour

Day 1Fes, Ifrane, Midelt, and Merzouga

We will leave Fes early in the morning en route to Merzouga. Most travel through forests, natural springs, rock walls, and small villages. Along the way, you will see many attractions like Ifrane, the Swiss-themed ski resort. From there, we will pass through the forests in Azrou, where you can see the native monkeys. Halfway down to the Sahara Desert, we will stop in Midelt for lunchtime and marvel at its history in fossils and rocks. The last leg of the journey to Merzouga will include a stop at the scenic spot that boasts panoramic views of the area below. In the afternoon, we will arrive in Merzouga, celebrate with food and music, and turn in for the night in a traditional Kasbah.

Day 2Merzouga

After resting and having breakfast, the adventure will continue by taking a 4×4 vehicle through the desert for nearly half the day. Along the way, we will encounter the different appearances of dunes, pass through tiny villages, and potentially stop and have a drink with a local Berber family. After that, we will make our way towards a cave, where you will learn how native people obtain fossils from the earth. We will refuel for lunch with a Berber family again, then prepare to head out via camel. The camel trek will give you an even better idea of what the desert landscape is like, and after about 2 hours of riding, we will rest at a camp and spend the night in a Berber tent. The evening will fill with traditional mint tea, food, and Moroccan music.

Day 3Rissani and Gorges

In the early morning, you will have a chance to make a short trip to the dunes and watch the sunrise, where the sun rises from just beyond the Algerian borderline. We will travel by camel once again, back to the hotel where you will have a chance to shower and eat some breakfast. After that, it’s time to head out towards Rissani and the Gorges (Todra and Dades). Along the way, in Rissani, we will encounter monuments and areas of interest that have to do with the Alaouite dynasty. The city of Rissani is also home to over 350 Kasbahs and many museums and market areas. After Rissani is the Gorges, which we will walk through and take in the beauty of the mountains and rivers. Once we arrive in Dades Gorge, we will enjoy a traditional meal and rest overnight in a Kasbah.

Day 4Ouarzazate, Ait Benhaddou, and Marrakech

After finishing breakfast and touring the gorges, we will stop in at the town of Ouarzazate, home of the Kasbah of Taourirt and the Atlas Studios. After that, it’s time to head to Ait Benhaddou, then travel the Tizi-n-Tichka road on the way to Marrakech. Along the way, we will pause at a village lunch. In the late afternoon, we will finally arrive in Marrakech. End of Fes desert tour.
