Following breakfast, our 3-day Fes Marrakesh desert tour will take us through the heart of the Middle Atlas Mountains, passing through the small charming town of Ifran, also known as “the Swiss town” due to its resemblance to a Swiss alpine resort.

After that, we drive through the lovely countryside, admiring the Berber villages and seeing the nomadic shepherds with their flocks spread out over the terrains. Stop for lunch in Midelt in the middle of the journey. Continuing south and passing through the Atlas Mountains and Ziz Gorges, we will arrive at the Ziz Valley’s spectacular secret oases, where we will pause for a panoramic view. We’ll pass through Erfoud on our way to the Sahara Desert, where your camels will be waiting to take you on a trip through the golden sand dunes. Along the way, your camel guide will stop for you to see one of the most beautiful sunsets you’ll ever see. The workers will serenade you with drums around a pit and under a starry sky after dinner.
