  5. 5 Day 5: Fes-Ifran-Azrou-Merzouga (450KM) Our journey today leads us from Fes to Merzouga, showcasing the breathtaking scenery of the Middle Atlas Mountains.

A sumptuous lunch awaits at a local eatery in Midelt, before we continue our scenic drive towards Merzouga, where you will be accommodated in a comfortable hotel for the night.
  6. 6 Day 6: Merzouga-Dades Gorges (250KM) If you wake up early enough, you can watch the spectacle of the sunrise, when the colour of the dunes and the play of shadows are an awesome sight. After breakfast at the camp, we leave for Tinghir and the Toudgha gorges. On the way, you pass the water channels – “khettarat”. You can descend into them to appreciate the architecture and genius behind this form of irrigation which prevents evaporation in the summer heat. The channels start at a higher gradient at one end until they finally emerge at the surface of the soil. You can find out more about these channels by reading Andrew Wilson’s work. In the gorge and the valley, there are opportunities to walk beyond the gorge itself or by the village gardens and fields before you reach it. Later the itinerary continues to the Dades Valley. The area, which now forms the Dades Gorges, lay at the bottom of the sea millions of years ago. Great quantities of sediment were deposited around giant coral reefs. Over time this material became compacted into a variety of sedimentary rocks such as sandstone and limestone. Eventually, the movement of the earth’s crust caused the region to rise above the sea, forming the Atlas Mountains and surrounding landscape. The night is spent in a hotel or kasbah.
  7. 7 Day 7: Dades Gorges - Ouarzazat-Ait Benhadou-Marrakech (210KM) Start the day with a fulfilling breakfast at your riad before we embark on the road journey back to Marrakech. En route, we visit the famous Ait Benhadou Kasbah, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its cultural significance and cinematic history. Our journey culminates with a scenic drive through the High Atlas Mountains' Tizi’nt Tichka pass, followed by a refreshing lunch at a local restaurant. Conclude the trip with a drop-off at your Marrakech accommodation, marking the end of the journey from Marrakech.
