Our adventure starts 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. The afternoon will then be free to explore Marrakesh at your own pace.
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.
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.
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 filled with exploration through several quaint and beautiful towns in Morocco. We will take the same route we took the day before to go back to Marrakesh.
We plan to be back Marrakesh around 21:00 (9:00pm) on Sunday night. This will give everyone time for a nice dinner and some final shopping before we take our group shuttle to the airport around midnight.
