3 Day Trip from Marrakech to Fez – Desert Morocco Adventure
Taking this 3-day trip from Marrakech to Fes via the Sahara desert is the best way to explore the south of Morocco. During this trip through the Sahara desert to Fez, you will pass valleys, Berber villages, and many tourist attractions. If you are looking for a travel agency to arrange this tour according to your wishes and needs, our team will be happy to help and arrange everything for you.
Day 1 : Marrakech – Skoura Oases – Boumalene Dades
From your hotel in Marrakech, the journey will be begun from Dades Valley which. All the visitors can enjoy amazing mountain views when we pass through Tizi and Tishka at the Atlas Mountain. The Ait Ben Haddou village that is considered as a world patrimony by UNESCO will also be visited. This tourist destination has been popular for its appearances in many films. After having lunch in the Ait Ben Haddou village, the journey will be continued by enjoying the beautiful scenery and historical buildings like Roses Valley and Taourirt Kasbah in Ouarzazate. Other places such as the ‘El Kelaa des M’Gouna’, little Berber villages of Skoura, and ‘Boumalene Dades’ will also be included in our list. Finally, all the tourists will spend the night in a hotel in the last destination which provides dinner and breakfast.
Day 2 : Dades Gorge – Tinjdad – Merzouga
The day 2 trip will be started from Boumalene Dades to Merzouga. There, the visitors can feel an amazing experience in Erg Chebbi, a large dune with fast wind. After passing through the Berber village Tinghir, we will reach Todra Gorge. This place has high cliffs which offer spectacular views that cannot be found anywhere else. We continue the trip by going through some Berber villages until we arrive at Tinjdad and enjoy lunch there. The next destination is Mergouza. The visitors will take their luggage to some rooms there and continue the trip by riding camels. The camel trek lasts for approximately 1 hour 30 minutes. The camels will take you to Berber camp. Located in the center of the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi, it is considered the tallest sand dunes in North Africa. The well-equipped tents provide all basic necessities for the visitors including restaurants. The last activity during the night is enjoying the desert night with traditional Berber drums around the fire.
Day 3 : Merzouga – Midelt – Fez
On the last day, we will continue our trip to Fez by passing through some places such as Errachidia, Erfoud, Meditlt, Ziz Valley, Ifrane, and Cedar Forests of Azrou. The journey will have a different starting time which depends on the season. Besides, visitors will still use camels as transportation. After having lunch in a restaurant nearby, all visitors will directly go to their hotel/Riad. They can take a rest there and then continue the trip in order to reach the destination. It’s better to go there with your family. So, enjoy Fez with your family.
Each of these places seem like lovely destinations, so a short trip over the span of a few days would be excellent. Thanks for the idea! If and when I ever go to Morocco, I am definitely going to do this.
