3 Days Marrakech To Fes Desert Tour
This fantastic 3 Days Marrakech To Fes Desert Tour offers the chance to camel trek, camp overnight in the deep desert (in a standard or luxury camp), and explore the Rose Valley, Todra and Dades Gorges, Ait Benhaddou and Azrou World Heritage Sites.
On the first day, we will go across Morocco’s highest pass, Tizi-n-Tichka Pass, to view and cross the High Atlas Mountains. Our Marrakech to Fes desert tour’s second day will take us through the Todra and Dades Gorges. In the late afternoon, we will reach the Merzouga Sahara desert. From there, a camel guide will lead us across sand dunes to a Bedouin camp. You’ll spend the night in the Merzouga desert, listening to the Sahara’s isolation. We will continue traveling to Fes (Fez) on the third day by means of the Midelt and Azrou cedar forests.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE 3 Days Marrakech To Fes Desert Tour:
- Do Sand Boarding activity
Day 1: Marrakech - Ait Ben Haddou & Ouarzazate - Dades Valley
In a modernized, air-conditioned 4WD/minibus, you will travel in style on your 3 Days Marrakech To Fes Desert Tour across the eastern half of Morocco. At 8:00 AM, a member of our tour group will pick you up from your accommodation in Marrakech and take you to the departure location. After crossing the Atlas Mountain range, we will enter the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou.
A walled city contains six kasbahs, which are all fascinating structures. Here, it will almost seem as though you have traveled back in time to the era of gladiators, nomadic peoples, and antique markets. After the sightseeing tour on the first day is over, lunch will be served in the Kasbah at Ait Ben Haddou.
On the first day, Ouarzazate will be our next stop. We’ll take in the beauty of a city where popular films like “The Mummy (1999 & 2001), “Lawrence of Arabia (1962),” “Gladiator (2000),” and “Game of Thrones” (2013) were made, to name just a few. This city is sometimes referred to as “The Gateway to the Desert.”
Before reaching the Dades Valley, we can stop at a café in the city that serves as the entryway to the desert. When you arrive, you can unwind in a private room at a traditional riad in Dades with a private bathroom and enjoy a delicious Moroccan evening meal.
Day 2: Dades - Todra Gorges - Erfoud - Merzouga (Night in Desert Camp)
After breakfast, we travel from Merzouga’s Dades gorges to the Erg Chebbi Sahara desert. We’ll pass through Tinjdad, Jorf, and Erfoud, where we’ll sense the start of the Saharan oasis of Tafilalet, and then we’ll continue to Merzouga, where your guide and camels will be waiting to transport you across majestic sand dunes of the Moroccan Sahara Desert. Berber villages are scatted along the route.
To go to our nomad desert tent in Erg Chebbi, we took a camel ride across sand dunes as the sun was setting. Dinner and an overnight stay in a nomad tent in the middle of the Sahara desert to the sound of drums.
Day 3: Merzouga Desert Ziz Valley »- Midelt - Ifrane - Fes
For the second day of our 3 Days Marrakech To Fes Desert Tour, breakfast will be served at the camp after you awake to see the stunning sunrise from the top of Erg Chebbi’s dunes. Then, you can choose to take a 4WD transfer instead of riding camels back to the starting point.
Following your time spent sightseeing in Merzouga, you’ll be transferred to the next location to travel to Fes via the Ziz Valley, Midelt, Ifrane City, also known as the “Little Switzerland of Morocco,” and the renowned Middle Atlas cedar forest, home to the Barbary apes, in Azrou, where you can take a short walk to take pictures… Arriving in Fes in the late afternoon, you will be dropped off at your riad or hotel with incredible stories and indelible memories fresh in your memory.
