Itinerary Details

Operated by: Hiking Nomads Morocco

After having breakfast, you are driving from Marrakech over the stunning Atlas Mountains. We will pass the highest point at Tichka Pass (2260m), where we will stop for some tea and to enjoy the view. After passing the mountains we will stop in the old Kasbahs of Ait Ben Haddou, which is an UNESCO world heritage. After that we drive further to Ouarzazate where you can visit the Cinema Museum. The road from Ouarzazate to Dades is also called “Road of 1000 Kasbahs” as you find old castles all the way through the different valleys. You will arrive in Dades in the afternoon to spend the night in a relaxed Hotel.
On the 2nd day you start your way to the Desert of Merzouga. Your first stop is the Todra Gorge, a beautiful Oasis. Between all these dry areas and mountains, the Todra Gorge is marked by a big river which makes the gorge completely green.
After this you will keep driving to the Desert. Once you arrived there, you will ride on
real camels into the desert through the highest dune, called Erg Chebbi. If you prefer to not ride on a camel we have other options of entering the desert as well.
On the last Day you make your way back to Marrakech. We will stop somewhere for lunch.
