Travel through amazing Moroccan countryside and visit the famous Sahara Desert on this 4 day trek. Join the View Morocco team and take advantage of their knowledge as you explore valleys, kasbahs and the legendary Sahara itself.
We will pick you up from your hotel or riad and head out to the High Atlas Tizi-n-Tichka pass at 2260m altitude. We’ll break up your journey with a visit to the kasbah Telouet and then take the caravan tracks to the kasbah at Ait Benhaddou.
Tonight, we’ll stay at the Gateway To The Sahara, Ouarzazarte in a riad or a comfortable hotel.
After breakfast we’ll take you out to see ‘The Valley Of The Roses’ with the winding River Dades running through the centre. When we leave, we’ll get some stunning views of the surrounding countryside as we travel on toward Tinghir and the Todgha valley. Make sure you keep an eye out for traditional Berber huts and villages!
Our next destination is the dramatic 300m Todgha Gorge, a popular, destination with rock climbers and occasionally even film-makers.
Afterward, we’ll set off for the village of Merzouga where we’ll be welcomed with a glass of mint tea and a short rest.
From there, we’re off into the desert! When we’re ready, we’ll ride our camels out into the dunes and catch the sunset before spending the night in a traditional nomad’s tent. Your dinner is included.
Today, we’ll get up early to watch the desert sunrise among the dunes and to get ready for the day ahead.
We’ll trek back to the hotel with our camels and grab a shower before we continue on with our adventure.
We’ll make a stop at Boumalne-Dades (via Rissani and Erfoud) where we’ll see the workshops that make objects and decorations from fossilized marble.
Finally, we’ll return to Marrakech where you can spend the night in your hotel or riad.
Today is your last day. If your flight is in the evening, then you can spend the day to explore more of Marrakech before you travel to the airport.
