Marrakech – High Atlas – Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah – Ouarzazate – Dadés Valley
Dadés Valley – Todra Gorges – Merzouga – Camel Trek and overnight in Berber Camp
After breakfast we´ll enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the Dades Valley from one strategic lookout in the mountains, from there we can appreciate the great number of kasbahs and the scenic characteristics of each one. A very good asphalt road leads up the valley from the city of Tinerhir to the gorge and then to the desert. After some stops on the way we´ll reach the Todra Gorges. The scenery is spectacular. Local people live in the area and can be seen in their adobe villages. Thanks to its rock sides with many uneven surfaces, these gorges are popular among rock climbers. After a short walk in the Todra gorges you´l have free time for lunch in Tinejdad or Touroug and then we continue our way to the desert to reach the spectacular dunes of Merzouga. We´ll take there a camel ride of one hour to our nomad camp located in the middle of a sea of dunes (Erg Chebbi). Before dinner we´ll see the sunset at the top of a dune for then sleep in a tent under a beautiful starry sky.
Merzouga Dunes – Draa Valley – Anti Atlas Mountains – Ouarzazate – Marrakech
Very early in the morning we have a “Date with the sunrise”. In the middle of the desert, waking up early is a “must do” to contemplate the most spectacular sunrise you´ve ever seen at the top of a dune close to the camp. Then we return to Merzouga on the camels where a delicious breakfast is waiting for us. Having regained strength we start our last trip day going through the arid pre-desertic area where we´ll meet the “acacia”, typical tree of this landscapes. On the way to the Draa valley we´ll make some stops to enjoy the beautiful views of the river that gives name to the valley. Its the longest river in Morocco, going through the hole country reaching Mauritania. Our trip continues towards Ouarzazate going through the Anti Atlas. We´ll have some free time for lunch in town and in the afternoon we start off our road again to Marrakech reaching about 8pm. Transfer to the hotel and end of our services.
