Detailed Itinerary of 6-Days Fez Desert Tour



Day 1: Fez airport and Sightseeing

We'll pick you up from the airport and drop you off at your Fez hotel for a rest. Then we'll go to the new part of town, where we'll see a variety of crafts. We'll visit Fez, Morocco's religious capital and one of the imperial cities, with a focus on history and crafts.Fez has one of the largest Medinas in the Arab world, as well as Madrasas, Souks (famous for the quantity and variety of spices), Al-Karaouine, the world's oldest university, mosques, plazas, local Andalusians and potters, palaces, and museums. Morocco's artisan capital is Fez. We'll spend the night at the riad after dinner.


Day 2: Fez – Ifran – Azrou – Erfoud – Merzouga

on the second day of your 6-Days Fez Desert Tour, We will depart after breakfast for the Middle Atlas Mountains, stopping in the charming town of Ifrane, also known as the "Switzerland of Morocco." We'll pass through the High Atlas Mountains and arrive in Errachidia, where the first large palm trees appear. This creates a green oasis, a microclimate suitable for growing a large range of fruits and vegetables. We'll arrive in Erfoud, the Tafilalet region's economic capital. The fossils discovered in this field attest to the fact that the area was once covered by the sea. The asphalt vanishes after this point. And the Saharan tracks adobe the Merzouga village tracks. We'll spend the night at the riad after dinner.


Day 3: Merzouga sightseeing

On the third day, we'll visit Erg Chebbi and Khamlia. Small settlements and populated houses can be found in unlikely locations far from civilization. In the evening, we'll meet up with the nomads and depart on a 44-mile camel ride to spend the night in the desert under the stars. In the mountains, you'll spend the night in nomad tents.


Day 4: Merzouga – Todra Gorges – Dades Valley – Ouarzazate

After breakfast, we'll head to Rissani and old Sijilmasa, a Sahara sourcing hub for ancient caravans. We'll continue on our journey across a semi-desert landscape before we reach the oasis of Tinghir, one of Morocco's most beautiful locations. Then we'll climb over 300 meters through the Todra Gorges. We'll travel to Ouarzazate via the Thousand Kasbahs Route, one of the most important cities in southern Morocco, known for its intense and cinematic activity, having produced films such as Gladiator, Troy, The Mummy, and others. Then we'll go to the Taourirt Kasbah. We'll be staying in a hotel and eating at a restaurant.


Day 5: Ouarzazate – Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou – Marrakech

On the 5th Day of your 6-Days Fez Desert Tour Following breakfast, we will fly to At Benhaddou, the Queen of Kasbahs (UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987). Later, we'll visit the Kasbah of Telouet, one of Morocco's most beautiful tracks. To enter the imperial city of Marrakech, we will proceed via the port of Morocco's highest mountain pass, Tizi n'Tichka (2,260 m). The riad will be our home for the night.


Day 6: Marrakech sightseeing  / Fez Departure

On the 6th Day of your 6-Days Fez Desert Tour, We'll go to Marrakech after breakfast. According to legend, the city was once populated by a tribe from the other side of the Atlas Mountains who brought with them a huge supply of dates, palms, and bones. Because of the color of its walls, it is known as "The Red City," and it is surrounded by gardens that are watered by underground wells dug by the Almoravids and Saharan nomads in the eleventh century. Following that, we'll go to Menara, the Casbah, the Saadian Tombs, the Bahia Palace, the Koutoubia, Majorelle Gardens, and the Souks, which are all must-sees. Discovering the square "Djemaa El Fna," where the city's life and events are concentrated: musicians, storytellers, jugglers, artisans, traders, and snake charmers, will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
