ITINERARY

Day 1: Fes – Ifrane – Midelt – Merzouga

Welcome to Morocco!

For the first day of this 2 days Fes desert tour, we will be picking you up from your accommodation (hotel or Riad) and 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. Situated at the edge of the Erg Chebbi dunes, Merzouga is the perfect location for us to begin our camel trekking expedition into the desert.

The end destination of the camel trek is a lovely desert camp neatly hidden away between the dunes, where we will spend this night of this Fes desert tour alongside the beats of Berber drums.

Day 2: Merzouga – Rissani – Midelt – Ifrane – Fes ( End of Fes desert tour)

The next day of this Fes desert tour, we will be woken by the mesmerizing desert sunrise, after which we will camel trek back to Merzouga. Back at the town, you will be able to enjoy breakfast and a warm shower at our hotel.

Following this, we will start heading back to Fes city where our tour has started. This time, we will stop by Rissani town, where we can visit the mausoleum of Moulay Ali Cherif, the founder the current ruling Alaouite dynasty. We will then continue travelling through the gorgeous Ziz valley, making sure to take many stops for photographs.

Finally, we will arrive at Fes where we will drop you off wherever you wish. This marks the end of our Fes desert tour.
