Full description
Embark on a three-day tour from Marrakech through the beautiful scenery of southern Morocco. This journey passes through many interesting towns and villages, where you will get a look into authentic Moroccan life. Sleep in authentic nomad tents or under the stars.

Day one: Marrakech - Tisi n'Tichka - Ait Ben Hadou - Ouarzazat - Skoura - Rose Valley

Distance: 180 miles 

Depart Marrakech and drive through the High Atlas Mountains, via the twisting Tizi n’ Tichka mountain pass to Ouarzazate. Visit the exotic Casbah of Aït Benhaddou, then continue to Ouarzazate center, where you can tour the Atlas Studios, the largest movie studio in Africa. 

Enjoy lunch at the Casbah of Tourirt, the former residence of the Glaoui Dynasty. Continue to Rose Valley and the Casbah of Amerhidil in Skoura, situated by the Amerhidil River and one of the largest in Morocco. Settle in for the night in Rose Valley.

Day two: Rose valley - Boumalen Dadès – Tinghir – Todra Gorge – Arfoud – Merzouga Dunes

Distance: 167 miles

After breakfast, depart for the Dadès Gorges and stop to enjoy the spectacular scenery while sipping on mint tea, also known as “Berber Whiskey.” Continue to Tinghir via Boulman Dadès, and see beautiful palm trees and lush landscapes. The journey then moves on the Todra Gorges for a leisurely lunch.

After lunch, drive to Merzouga to trek by camel across the wind-blown Erg Chebbi Dunes, and to experience a classic Saharan desert straight from the picture books. Spend the evening in a bivouac (camp) with a typical Moroccan dinner. Sleep in a traditional nomadic tent in the dunes of Erg Chebbi under the stars.

Day three: Erg Chebbi - Marrakech

Distance: 347 miles

Wake up early for the sunrise and a mint tea before a camel ride to a casbah hotel for breakfast and a shower. Then, return through the Atlas Mountains to Marrakech, where your adventure ends.
