Sahara Highlight Trips - 3 Days from Marrakech to Fes
This is the ideal journey from Marrakech to Merzouga Desert, visiting the Sahara Desert and the Atlas Mountains on the way. It also visits the Dades Gorge and the Todra Gorge. The tour can be taken over 3days, with the option of extending to 4 or 5 days. If you would like some activities such as sand-boarding or quad-biking in the desert, or hiking in the Atlas Mountains, we can include these for you too.
To extend this tour to 4 or 5 days choose one or both of the following options:
After your first night in the Dades Gorge, why not take what is probably the most beautiful day trip in all of Morocco? Perfect for an exciting day off the beaten track. Today your Sahara Atlas Tours driver-guide will take you on an off-road adventure through spectacular mountain scenery and rock formations towards the range of Mount M’goun, the second-highest mountain in Morocco. You will have a chance to meet nomad families in remote locations, see the caves where they live and share a glass of tea with them. Depending on the weather, either you will have lunch in a charming local restaurant or a delightful picnic in a shady gorge. We travel on through the Valley of the Roses, one of the main regions in the world for growing damask roses, which hedge every small field. They only bloom briefly in May, when the buds are picked to make many rose products. The valley is lush and green most of the year, and we will pass many traditional Berber villages, with earth-built houses and stunning Kasbahs. If you like, you can take easy walks through parts of the valley and some of the villages. We return to the Dades Gorge in the late afternoon.
