Around 8:30 am, your driver will pick you up from your Fes riad/hotel and begin your 5 Days Tour From Fes To Marrakech via Merzouga. From there, you’ll travel to the Sahara Desert, where the Erg Chebbi sand dunes are located.
Tafilalet, the largest oasis in southern Morocco, is reached after an 8-hour trek across the Atlas Mountains. Tafilalet is made up of numerous villages, palmers, and two significant Saharan cities, Erfoud and Rissani.
We will stop frequently along the way in the mountain village of Ifrane, the Azrou cedar forest, where monkeys live, Midelt for lunch, and Ziz valley for its breathtaking views of the palm trees and for its lovely valley in the middle of the Sahara. The Erg Chebbi sand dunes will then be our destination.
The dunes finally appear in the middle of nowhere as we travel further into the desert landscape. On the first night of your 5 Days Tour From Fes To Marrakech, have dinner and spend the night in a hotel with a pool along the Erg Chebbi dune line.
Today, we’ll explore the desert area and the magnificent Erg Chebbi sand dunes. We’ll do a tour of the dunes in the desert so you can witness how nomads live and the incredible shifting contrasts of the landscape.
Then, go witness the Gnawa musicians in the “black village” of Khamlia. In the historic capital of Rissani, lunch should also include a classic Berber pizza. After viewing the afternoon sunset over the sand dunes, we will ride camels back to the desert camp where we will spend the night.
We will have a traditional tagine dinner, drink delicious mint tea, and listen to traditional Berber music while watching the stars and the rising moon in the amazing Sahara desert.
Before heading back to our desert hotel, we’ll wake up early to see the most spectacular sunrise of your life, which will cast various shadows and hues across the highest sand dune sea in all of Morocco.
Following breakfast, we’ll head on to Tinghir and the breathtaking Todra Gorge, one of Morocco’s tallest and tiniest gorges. A gorge is an excellent place for trekking, sitting by the river, and enjoying some regional Berber food culture.
After having a meal in the middle of the gorge, we’ll travel through the Dades Valley before completing the day by spending the night in a luxury hotel located atop a mountain.
Following breakfast at the hotel, we set off down the “Road of 1000 Thousand Kasbahs,” which is surrounded by magnificent kasbahs. Sadly, many of the old fortified homes are in ruins, though some have been repaired.
We proceed through the Dades Valley and climb up to the mountainous region via an off-road trail where there are numerous Berber villages and a small number of cave-dwelling nomads. Here, we will have the opportunity to visit one of these families and get a glimpse of their daily routines and primary occupation, which is tending to herds of goats, sheep, and other livestock.
Before we arrive at the Skoura palm grove, the colorful rose valley will leave an impression on us. We travel another 45 kilometers to reach Ouarzazate, where we will have dinner and spend the night at a hotel.
We will visit Taourirt Kasbah after breakfast before traveling to Ait Benhaddou to see the World Heritage Site. The Kasbah el Glaoui and Telouet, a classic High Atlas Berber settlement, will be our next stops.
Before climbing the Tizi-n-Tichka to Marrakech, where our 5 Days Tour From Fes To Marrakech through Merzouga Sahara concludes, we will eat lunch at a local eatery in Telouet.

Morocco’s economy is heavily reliant on tourism to meet its financial needs. To put it another way, the Moroccan government wants tourists to feel comfortable and secure while spending their holiday and money in the country.
As a result, it devotes a significant amount of resources, particularly human resources, to ensure that all tourists are secure while in Morocco; this includes tourist police and highly qualified guides who have been accredited by the government after undergoing training.
In terms of extremism and crime rates, we can state that the occurrence of such crimes is similar to that of many European countries, as evidenced by several statistics: low and uncommon.
You could enjoy traveling on your own once you’ve learned your way around and been acquainted with the local culture. You’ll be OK as long as you’re comfortable with it and stay away from the shady areas.
It will also allow you to save some money. However, some destinations require the assistance of a professional guide; you will most likely realize this once you are in such a location, particularly that outside of towns, such as the desert, where you will need a guide to assist you with camels and other items.
We’ll ask you for a deposit to secure your tour with Let’s Visit Morocco once we’ve confirmed an itinerary that works for you/your group (tours shown on our website can be changed based on your needs). We ask that you pay the remaining balance of your trip reservation at the beginning of your tour in Morocco.
