ITINERARY

DAY 1: TANGIER – CHEFCHAUEN – FES

Welcome to Morocco!

For the first day of this tour from Tangier, we will pick you up in Tangier, either from the airport or the ferry port, then start exploring this vibrant metropolis. We will begin by stroll alongside the coast, then visit the city’s old medina quarter. Following that, we will head to our destination of the day, which is the Blue Town Chefchaouen.

Located on the foothill of two Rif Mountains, Chefchaouen attracts visitors from all over the world for the vibrant blue color that washes over its buildings and streets.  We will spend the rest of our day exploring the town and enjoying its vibrant and colorful culture, alongside its mouthwatering cuisine. Finally, we will continue traveling to Fes city where we will have dinner and spend your first night in this tour from Tangier.

DAY 2: EXPLORE FES

The next day, you will enjoy a traditional breakfast at the Riad, before heading out to explore the spiritual capital of Morocco, Fes city. The city is divided into two parts: Fes El Bali and Fes Jdid, which translate to the old Fes and the new Fes. Our tour will focus primarily on Fes El Bali, since that’s where the Old Medina is.

The old Medina of Fes resembles a maze in how all of its narrow streets connect and lead into each other, making you feel like you’ve been completely immersed into traditional Moroccan culture. Our tour of Fes will also include iconic monuments such as the Quaraouine University (the oldest still operating university in the world), the Nejjarine museum, and The Bou Inania traditional school.

After we are done with this, we can visit some parts of Fes Jdid next, where we can find a café with a lovely panoramic view to relax at. Finally, we will head back to our Riad to have dinner and spend the night ending the second day of this tour from tangier. 

DAY 3: FES- MIDELT – MERZOUGA DESERT

The next day of this tour from Tangier, we will be picking you up from the Riad to begin our journey to the Moroccan Sahara desert. The journey will take us through the majestic Middle Atlas Mountains with their fertile green and rocky landscape. Our First stop today will be at perhaps the prettiest village in all of Morocco, Ifrane, nicknamed “The Switzerland of Morocco”. In Ifrane, green parks fill the city alongside chalets and other typical European architecture.

After a stroll through the town center, we will be moving forward towards our next destination, the Cedar forests of Azrou. What’s so special about these forests is that they are the natural habitat of the native Barbary monkey species. We can have a refreshing walk through the cedar trees and hopefully get a glimpse of the monkeys (they’re accustomed to visitors!).

Following this, our journey continues crossing the Atlas Mountains, until we start reaching Morocco’s desert with the first desert town: Erfoud. Erfoud is known locally for its high quality marble, fossils, and dates. We will take this opportunity to have a mouthwatering traditional lunch before continuing on to the village of Merzouga: the gateway to the Moroccan desert. And to end another day of this tour from tangier, we will have dinner and spend the night at a local Kasbah hotel.

DAY 4: MERZOUGA DESERT

Today in this tour from Tangier will be spend exploring the desert and trying out different desert activities at Erg Chebbi.

Similarly, if you’re a fan of SPA activities and self-care, you can try the famous sand baths that are rumored to have great healing properties.

For lunch, you can try a famous local meal called Medfouna, which is a meat filled pie slow cooked in fire ashes made in the sand. After that, you can camel trek during the sunset to experience the majesty of the desert one last time and get some amazing photographs of the landscape. Finally, we will camel trek to a desert camp in the evening to enjoy a big feast/party around a camp fire. Share desert stories and enjoy gazing at the desert night sky before heading to bed in traditional tents.

When we are done with that, we will continue travelling alongside a road nicknamed “the road of the Thousand Kasbahs”, containing places such as the valley of Roses and Skoura.

Our next stop will be the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, which is an iconic historical monument near Ouarzazate where many big Hollywood movies were shot (Gladiator, Lawrence of Arabia, Kingdom of heaven, etc.). Following this amazing exploration, we will take on a famous mountain pass called Tizin-Tichka, before finally arriving at Marrakech. We will check in at a traditional Riad to have dinner and spend the night.
