If you are a desert lover and plan to visit Marrakech for a short time, there are other desert tours available from Marrakech. For those who don’t have much time to travel, the Agafay Desert is an ideal destination for a day trip. It is only 30 minutes from Marrakech and is ideal for outdoor activities. There you will not find golden sand dunes, but a stone desert where you can experience a great desert experience with an incredibly beautiful view of the High Atlas Mountains. In addition, it is closed enough to be an easy start to quad biking.

The Agafay Desert is located about 30 kilometers southwest of Marrakech at the foot of the High Atlas Mountains. During the Agafay excursion from Marrakech, you will explore the untouched nature of the desert and landfill during the sunset. The landscape of the rocky Agafay Desert is covered with wildflowers in spring, but in summer it resembles a real dry desert with red and white hills and a beautiful view of the snowy High Atlas Mountains in the background.

The arid landscape of the Agafay desert is located thirty kilometers south of the red city of Marrakech and extends over several hundred hectares. This area of red hills can be compared to a dry desert but will not find the high sand dunes as you can see in Erg Chebbi. In fact, Agafay’s white-red hills and surrounding landscapes are the perfect locations for beautiful photo shoots for a luxury fashion brand.

Agafay is located about 30 kilometers from the city of Marrakech, between the eastern lake of Lalla Takerkoust and south of the high mountains. There you can explore the untouched nature of the desert and green fields on a full-day tour. The landscape of the Agafay Desert is covered in wheat, barley and flowers, but in the summer and autumn months it looks a bit like the real desert with its rolling high dunes at the foot of the beautiful nearby snow-capped High Atlas Mountains. In spring, Agafay offers wildflowers and other flora that make it a picturesque desert.
