We will reach the height up to almost 2000 meters. One of the interesting places to visit is Ifrane, also known as Moroccan Switzerland. In the winter season, there are possibilities for skiing here. Ifrane also has a private university.

In this area, we will see a lot of apple trees, olive trees. The cedar forest with eucalyptus trees is also a natural habitat fort he barbary monkeys

As we drive further into the Middle Atlas we pass some Berber villages like Immouzar.

We are going to pursue driving via Midelt, the capital of apples to Vallee Ziz, the valley of the Dades. We will stop at some panoramic views for making the most incredible photographs.

After passing Erfoud (and Rissani ) the most unbelievable red dunes arise at the horizon. Erg Chebbi dunes look mysterious and majestic. Some of the dunes reach a height of 150 meters.

After a long day, you will enjoy the hospitality of the Kasbah in Merzouga. Take a nice hot shower and enjoy a good meal. There also will be Nomad musicians to complete the day.

 

DAY 2: MERZOUGA – DESERT ADVENTURE AND CAMEL TREKKING

 

The second day will be an amazing experience in The Sahara Desert of Erg Chebbi. We will start early in the morning after breakfast and drive (with 4×4) through the most breathtaking golden sand dunes. We will visit the old Merzouga center in the middle of the desert, now occupied by the military. We also visit a Nomad family to have tea and share some of the fascinating native daily life. We enjoy their Gnawa music together. We also make a stop for lunch in a small village called Khamlia. This place is known for its special Berber pizzas.

After a refreshing break in the hotel, we go back into the desert by camels to stay overnight in a Nomad camp. There you will experience the most wonderful sunset and sunrise you have ever seen. Far from the business of everyday life in the cities, you will experience the silence of The Sahara.

 

DAY 3: MERZOUGA – TINGHIR – TODRA GORGES – DADES – OUARZAZATE

 

On the third day, we will wake up very early in the morning for enjoying the most incredible sunrise. Every minute the sky changes its color.

After breakfast and a shower in the hotel, we leave for Erfoud which is known for its fossils. If you like we can stop to buy some trilobites.

We pass Talifalt Oasis to get to Todra Gorges. The water of the mountains is used here for irrigation in the palm-filled  Dades Valley. We will visit several Berber villages situated in the Todra Gorges. Next, we will drive on to Quarzazate, through Dades Valley, The Valley of the Roses and Skoura. We will arrive at Quarzazate in the evening.

This is where we end the third day of the tour.

 

DAY 4: OUARZAZATE – KASBAH AIT BEN HADDOU – MARRAKECH

The third day, we start by visiting Ouarzazate, Tifoultout Kasbah, the Kasbah of Taourirt, and the world-famous cinema studio. ( Atlas cooperation studios/ CLA studios)  . The studios were important in the making of many famous movies such as Gladiator, Cleopatra, Kingdom of heaven and Game of Thrones. It is possible to make a tour inside the studios with a special guide.

Along the way, we can stop at the panoramic view of Ait Ben Haddou.

Aït-Ben-Haddou (آيت بن حدو) is a medieval, fortified city in the Moroccan region of Souss-Massa-Daraâ along a river. The city is known for the beautiful Kasbahs, which are built against a hill. These are made of clay and are called the Ksar together. The kasbahs are reinforced by walls with corner towers with narrow alleys in between, and thus a typical example of South Moroccan architecture. The city was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987 and annually attracts some 25,000 tourists.

The new city has about 750 inhabitants, most of whom now live in modern houses in a neighborhood on the other side of the river. However, a few families still live in the ksar. Completely on top is the grain storage, again within a wall. This was the best-defended part of the ksar.

The road towards Marrakech takes us through a high mountain range, the high Atlas. High Atlas, also called the Grand Atlas Mountains (Arabic: الاطلس الكبير‎; is a mountain range in central Morocco.

The High Atlas rises in the west at the Atlantic Ocean and stretches in an eastern direction to the Moroccan-Algerian border.

The range includes Jbel Toubkal, which at 4,167 m is the highest in the range and lies in Toubkal National Park. The range serves as a weather system barrier in Morocco running east-west and separating the Sahara from the Mediterranean and continental zones to the north and west. In the higher elevations of the massif, snow falls regularly, allowing winter sports. Snow lasts well into late spring in the High Atlas, mostly on the northern faces of the range. On the Western High Atlas, there is Oukaïmeden, one of three main ski stations in Morocco.

At the end of the afternoon, we arrive in Marrakech, the Red City.

 

Merzouga is the golden gate of the Moroccan Sahara, the fascinating village lies on the edge of Erg Chebbi, Morocco's highest and most beautiful dunes. Our Tour would end in Marrakech, The Red Moroccan city.
