This is a complete Desert day.  “Date with the sunrise”  If you are In the middle of the desert, it`s absolutely worth getting up early to contemplate the most spectacular sunrise you´ve ever seen at the top of a dune close to the camp and enjoy this landscape that is a gift of nature.

Day 3

Merzouga Desert – Ziz Valley – Cedar forests and monkey troupes of Azrou – Fes

Once ready, we start our last day to the north through the Tafilalet palm grove, the biggest in the world. You´ll see thousands of palm trees along the 20km of road.  This way leads us to the Ziz valley, which river comes down from the high Atlas and feeds the palm grove. Here we make a stop and from this high viewpoint,  enjoy a magnificent  view of the valley and the town of Aoufous. We make another stop in Midelt, just in the heart of the Atlas where you´ll have free time for lunch and rest for a while. In the afternoon we continue our way through the Cedar Woods where, if we are lucky, we´ll see some monkeys. The next place we´ll visit is the city of Ifrane, situated in the northwestern slope of the Middle Atlas at 1630 meters above the water level. Its broad avenues, its urban development with perfect cleanness, the gardens, the green areas and its architecture make this city look like a swiss town.  Ifrane feels misplaced in Morocco.  Thats why it´s named the moroccan Switzerland, and if that´s not enough it has an important ski resort, Michlifen, About 6 pm we arrive at Fez,  transfer to the hotel, and end of our services.

Experiencia inolvidable!!!!
Fuimos 5 a Fez, sin haber mirado mucho el viaje, y nos gestionaron el transporte, alojamiento y excursiones. Una de las mejores experiencias sin duda fue la excursión al desierto de Merzouga, donde dormimos en una Jaima y disfrutamos de un cielo espectacular. Sin duda repetiremos.
Muchas grácias a nuestro guia, Hassan, por habernos enseñado la cultura y unos sitios preciosos.

Una experiencia inolvidable!!!
Fuimos con un grupo de 5 a Fez y con poco conecimiento sobre el territorio y el país y hemos vuelto muy contentos con la experiencia. Recomendamos a Hassan como guia por su experiencias y sus conocimientos asi como por su simpatia y amabilidad. Fuimos a Fez con un guia y volvemos a Barcelona con un buen amigo!
