Day 1: Fes – Midelt – Erfoud – Merzouga – Erg Chebbi (532km)

Our adventure begins at 8:00 a.m. as we depart from Fes, heading towards Midelt through the Atlas Mountains and the cedar forests of the Middle Atlas. We pass through Ifrane, a charming ski resort, and Azrou, a notable handicraft center specializing in cedar woodwork. After arriving in Midelt for lunch, we continue our journey to Erfoud and into the desert. Upon reaching the dunes of Erg Chebbi, a short off-road trip takes us to the edge of the golden sands where camels await.

 Your luggage will be transported by 4×4 to the camp, allowing you to enjoy a beautiful camel ride over the dunes and witness a majestic Sahara sunset. On arrival at the camp, you’ll be greeted with tea and smiles before settling into your private tents, equipped with ensuite bathrooms and showers. After a delicious dinner, the evening will be filled with music and a festive atmosphere under the starry desert sky.

Day 2: Merzouga – Rissani – Todra Gorges – Dades Gorges (304km)

Wake up early to capture the stunning sunrise and enjoy breakfast in the open air. You can return to the main road either by camel or 4×4, leaving the dunes behind. Our next stop is Erfoud, known for its fossils. We then drive through palm groves and savannah-like desert landscapes, pausing for lunch before taking a short walk in the Todra Gorges. We continue to Dades Gorge, where dinner and overnight accommodation await at a comfortable hotel.

Day 3: Dades Gorges – Skoura – Ouarzazate – Ait Benhaddou – Marrakech (356km)

After breakfast, we take a short walk in the Dades Gorges before resuming our journey. We travel through the Dades Valley, known as the Valley of the Roses and the road of a thousand Kasbahs, to reach Ouarzazate. Here, we visit the famous Ait Benhaddou village, a UNESCO World Heritage site featured in films such as Gladiator and Lawrence of Arabia. After lunch, we drive through the Tichka Pass to arrive in Marrakech, completing our tour.
