On this incredible adventure we will take you through the heart of Morocco’s Southern region! Marrakesh is an absolute must-see location, and this is exactly where our South Morocco trip is based! We’ll soak up the exciting sights in the city’s Medina, experience the lively happenings in the Jemma el-Fnaa Square, tour some incredible local shops and so much more!

Apart from Marrakesh we will be discovering some impressive sites like the Atlas Mountains, the ancient mud city of Aït Ben Haddou and the Todra Canyon! But the main event of this entire road trip is our once in a lifetime visit to the Sahara Desert, where we will ride camels through the dunes and stay at a Berber style campsite to soak in the beautiful desert culture.

You can either book now at the bottom of this page or in our office on Calle Gran Vía 33, 8D. If you have any questions please get in touch with us at [email protected].

Please be advised that in accordance with our terms and conditions the City Card membership cannot be used to obtain discounts for anyone but the card holder.



Transportation from Spain to Morocco is not included in this package. You will need to book your own flight to Marrakesh and send us the flight details. With these details, we will happily arrange your airport pick-up and drop off in Morocco at no extra charge.

Day 1: Marrakesh (Wednesday)

We’ll meet in the evening at Marrakesh’s airport. Once the group is together we will head to our hotel for check-in and you’ll get some free time for dinner. Our adventure will really starts the next day when we will start our route to the Sahara Desert.

Day 2: Marrakesh – Atlas Mountains – Ait Ben Haddou – Dades Gorges (Thursday)

Our day begins with a hotel breakfast (included) so we can head towards Ouarzazate, known as the “Door of the Desert” through the Atlas Mountains, filled with stunning natural views, and then we will stop in Tizi n’Tichka for some amazing panoramic picture opportunities. We will continue South and follow the 6km track that leads to the village of Ait Ben Haddou, famous for its Kasbah (which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site). Several famous movies and series, such as Gladiator and Game of Thrones were filmed in this beautiful town. Then we continue to the Rose Valley were our accommodation will be waiting for us. Dinner for this evening will be included at our hotel.

Day 3: Dades Gorges – Todra Canyons – Sahara Desert (Friday)

After breakfast, we’ll continue through a path filled with beautiful scenery and unforgettable Kasbahs (Islamic Fortresses), each one unique from the next. We will then arrive at one of the most iconic places in the South of Morocco: the Todra Canyon. Cliff walls of epic proportions and immense beauty surround the channel of the River Todra; it’s a climber’s paradise!


Time to head to the Sahara desert. After selecting some traditional Berber gear from our favourite local shop, we will take our essentials and head to our Berber camp just at the entrance of the desert. We will take our camels out to the dunes where we will have the chance to sandboard and catch the sunset over the Sahara before heading to dinner at the camp. You can climb the dunes near the camp with a warm cup of tea and enjoy the peace and quiet of the desert and relax after the adventure-filled day. Finally, we’ll be spending the night in typical Berber tents, under a spectacular canopy of stars.

Day 4: Sahara Desert – Marrakesh (Saturday)

After an unforgettable night in the desert we start with an early climb to the closest dune, to catch a glimpse of the sun rising over the dunes. Then a filling breakfast before we kick off a day on the road as we head back to Marrakesh.

Important: Our drive back to Marrakesh will take the entire day. This means  we won’t get back to Marrakesh before 21:00. Please keep this in mind before making any plans for this evening.

Day 5: Marrakesh – Return to Madrid (Sunday)

After another complimentary breakfast at our hotel our adventure continues early in the morning with an amazing walking tour of bustling Marrakesh. This is where we will explore the market place (known as the Medina), learn Moroccan health secrets at a local pharmacy and discover the amazing Jemaa el Fnaa square. If you pick the recommended flight you will be brought to the airport after the tour. If you opt for a later flight, the afternoon will then be free to explore Marrakesh until our flight back to Madrid. Pick the flight that suits you best that day and we will bring you to the airport.
