Marrakech: 3-Day Desert Tour to Fes

1. Marrakech: 3-Day Desert Tour to Fes

Day 1: Marrakech, Ait Ben Haddou, Ouarzazate, and Dades You will meet your guide in Marrakech after breakfast and set off towards the High Atlas Mountains through the Tizi-n-Tichka Pass along a road that climbs the plains to 2,260 meters above sea level. You will pass by small villages and scenic waterfalls, and will also notice the continuously changing landscape and colors of these beautiful mountains. You will then stop in a pass for a cup of refreshing mint tea and to admire the scenery before taking the road to the Ait Benhaddou Kasbah, arriving just in time for lunch. You will then visit the famous Kasbah, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the setting for films such as the Gladiator, Babel, Lawrence of Arabia, the Legionary, the Sheltering Sky, and many others. You will later head through the town of Ouarzazate to check out Atlas Studios, the largest and most famous film studio in all of Africa. Next, you will journey through the picturesque Valley of Roses to reach the Dades Gorges in time for sunset. Once there you can admire the splendid colors of the rock walls illuminated by the last rays of golden sunlight. Your final stop for the day will be to a romantic, traditional hotel for dinner and an overnight stay. Day 2: Dades, Erfoud, Merzouga, and Erg-Chebbi Following breakfast, you will take a scenic walk through the Todra Gorges before hopping into your car to drive along the famous Road of the 1000 Kasbahs. You will travel through Tineghier Village and the Jewish Kasbah before arriving in Rissani, the first capital of the Alaouite Dynasty, for lunch. You will next go on a walking tour through Rissani and check out its large traditional market, and will then head to Merzouga, arriving before sunset. At this stage you will leave the car behind and ride a camel into the Erg Chebbi Dunes for an unforgettable night under the million stars of the desert. Finally, you will have dinner at the campsite and stay in a traditional Berber tent. Day 3: Merzouga, Rissani, Ziz Oasis, Medilt, and Fes You will wake up in time to watch the sun rise over the 300-meter-tall dunes and travel into the dawn towards the border with Algeria. Next, you will return by camel to a hotel for breakfast and a shower. You will then depart for Fes, traveling through the Ziz valley and stopping for lunch in village with plentiful apple orchards. You will later enjoy the journey through mountain cedar forests before arriving to Fes in the afternoon, stopping to take pictures at a panoramic viewpoint.

Fes: Middle Atlas Mountains Walking and Trekking Tour

2. Fes: Middle Atlas Mountains Walking and Trekking Tour

Your tour will begin as you cross the small town of Immouzer Kandar, which is popular in the summer for its more temperate climate than that of Fes. Afterwards, you will make a detour to the amazing Lake Daiet Aoua, where you can admire the surrounding hills which are reflected in its waters, as well as the riders who use it as a playground. You will then arrive in Ifrane, where you are bound to be surprised by the unusual appearance of the city. With its sloping roofs, chimneys with huge stork nests, abundant flower beds, and chestnut trees, the city looks like a small corner of Europe. The road then continues to the ski resorts and Jebel Michlifen Habre, before veering down to Azrou. You will make a stop at the foot of Cedar Goureau, where you may be able to see some of the monkeys that live in this forest. Finally, after admiring the green roofs, the rock (Azrou in Berber), and the work of the local craftsmen, it will be time to head back to Fes.

Fes: Private Hiking Experience Along the Zalagh Hillside

3. Fes: Private Hiking Experience Along the Zalagh Hillside

Not far from the Palais Amani Boutique Hotel, the Zalagh hillside range sits majestically above Fez's sprawling medina. In Berber, Zalagh means male kid goat, and a hike along the backbone of this massive beast of a hillside gives you a taste of the Berber way of life less than 30 minutes from the urban labyrinth below. After meeting your guide at the meeting point, take the road that winds steeply up from the medina and plunge into the Berber countryside full of ancient olive groves, hidden from the city on the other side of the mountain. Your driver will then turn off onto a dirt track and for 15-20 minutes you can take in the landscape dotted with vernacular farmsteads, livestock, and crops. As you go, marvel at the scenery of the Rif mountains stretching out as far as the eye can see. Next, take a 1.5-hour hike at a pace easy enough for even inexperienced hikers to Zalagh's summit and onwards to the peak of the range. Despite its proximity to the city, it is never crowded, much to the delight of mountain bikers and hikers alike. Enjoy escaping from the heat at this elevation, and admire the stunning views of the entire ancient city of Fes, the surrounding landscape, the Sebou Valley, Rif mountains, and Sais Plains. After your hike, your guide will bring you back to the perfect spot for a picnic. Dine in the shade of the pine trees before walking back down to the car and being transferred back to the meeting point.

What people are saying about Fès-Meknès

Salem was the best guide! We saw so much more of Morocco than we expected to see, thanks to him. The car rides in between Marrakech and Merzouga, Merzouga and Fes are quite long, but the landscape and sites in between are gorgeous which helps make the time pass. The actual desert portion of the trip was INCREDIBLE, a definite must-do if you are coming to Morocco. I only wish we stayed one more day in the desert to offset the time in the car.

Unforgettable experience that I can't wait to repeat! We did the tour together with Hachim, very good and very nice, with deep knowledge of the territory and the different cultures in which he manages to immerse you completely. In the journey, in addition to discovering magical places, you meet wonderful people who enrich you and will always remain in your heart. Absolutely recommended

We had a great 3-day desert tour (Marrakech-Fez) with Hachim, who not only brought us closer to Morocco and its culture, but also got the best rooms and food for us. The day in the desert in particular was something very special.

Simply marvellous! Abdorahman is highly professional, knowledgeable and very reliable

Pleasant trip, Imane very friendly, attentive, well-spaced stops.
