What to Expect
Book your preferred tour option and start your 3-day adventure with pickup from your Marrakech accommodation. Then, settle inside your shared, air-conditioned minivan and travel into the Atlas Mountains, passing Berber villages, orchards, and rugged valleys. After crossing the Tizi-n-Tichka pass, visit the UNESCO-listed medieval fortified town of Ait Benhaddou kasbah before taking in the desert oasis of Skoura and staying overnight at Boumalne du Dades. On the second day, trace the Road of 1,000 Kasbahs to Tinghir, and walk through an oasis to the spectacular Todra Gorge. After lunch at a local café and an afternoon visit to the holy city of Rissani, travel on to Merzouga on the fringes of the Sahara desert. Then, take a late-afternoon camel trek toward Erg Chebbi, where you'll spend the night at a desert camp and enjoy dinner and local live music under the stars. Your final day begins with a stroll in the dunes and a desert breakfast before a return camel ride to Merzouga and journey back via Ouarzazate and the High Atlas to Marrakech, where your trip ends at the starting point.
