Day 1 of this Fes to Marrakech desert tour 2 days: Fes – Ifrane – Midelt – Merzouga

Welcome to Morocco!

For the first day of this Fes to Marrakech desert tour 2 days 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 the first night of this Marrakech desert tour alongside the beats of Berber drums.

Day 2 of this Fes to Marrakech desert tour 2 days: Merzouga – Rissani – Tinghir – Todra Gorges – Dades valley –skoura – Ouarzazate – Marrakech (Final day in Marrakech desert tour)

The next day of this Fes to Marrakech desert tour 2 days, we will be woken up 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 to the final destination of this tour: Marrakech city.

Our journey will take us to the Todra Gorges near Tinjdad, which are mesmerizing rock formations that attract climbers from all over the world. Following the same path, we will arrive at the Dades Valley, where we will make a stop to have lunch and appreciate the scenery. 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 can drop you off at your preferred location, after which our Fes to Marrakech desert tour 2 days will be over.

5 Reason Why You should Visit Fes:

Fez welcomes its visitors in the north of Morocco, between the Rif and the Middle Atlas. Radiant and colorful, and this, since its creation in the Middle Ages, it is one of the four imperial cities of the country. A destination that inspires both art lovers and simple tourists. Getting lost in its souks, venturing into the narrow streets of its medina, or contemplating its most beautiful buildings with impressive mosaics, there are many discovery activities. Do you still have some hesitations? Here are 5 good reasons to fly to this exotic city and before you start our Fes to Marrakech desert tour 2 days. 

 

The largest open air tannery in Morocco:

Visiting the open-air Chouara tannery, considered the most important in Morocco, is an unusual experience. Created more than 1,000 years ago and located near Place As-Seffarine, it is one of the highlights of local tourism. The ideal is to go there in the morning, when the tanners are in full activity. With a little luck, you will be able to move between the vats filled with dyes. Some vendors will even be happy to explain the tanning process to you, in exchange for a purchase or a small tip. You can also admire the spectacular panorama over all the vats from the terrace of the surrounding cafes and restaurants, for sure one of the reason why you should pick our Fes to marrakech desert tour 2 days.

 

A multitude of museums:

Visiting museums is an activity in its own right in Fez. At the Weapons Museum housed in an imposing 16th century fort, you will discover an impressive collection of ancient weapons, some of which date back to prehistoric times. The Nejjarine Museum of Wood Arts and Crafts presents, for its part, a multitude of traditional objects, such as prayer beads, various artisan tools, musical instruments or various elements of Berber ironwork. Moroccan art and craftsmanship can be seen at the Batha Museum. You will find there, among other things, colorful Berber carpets, a selection of zelliges and chiseled stucco recovered from the old medersas or magnificent Fassi embroideries.

In the experience of Fes to Marrakech desert tour 2 days you will visit all the must-see sites and live a wonderful time in the old city. To know more about what will be included please contact us

 

The largest mosque in North Africa:

Majestically laid out in the very heart of the medina, the Quaraouiyine Mosque was built in 859 by Tunisian refugees and has a capacity of 20,000 worshippers. This high place of the Muslim religion is also home to one of the oldest universities in the world still in operation. It even houses a library which presents an exceptional collection of illuminated Korans. The site is closed to non-Muslims, but you can still appreciate the splendor of its endless colonnades from the doors that open onto As-Seffarine and Talaa Kebira squares, for sure another reason why you should pick our Fes to Marrakech desert tour 2 days.

 

A city within the city:

In Fez, we discover a small city within the city. Known as El Jedid and built in the course of the 13th century in order to revive the city, it has become the privileged site of various traders. In its rather particular decor, resembling a former royal district, various shows take place, such as that of the snake charmers. Also take the time to discover its emblematic places, such as the Place des Alaouites, the Jewish quarter of Mellah, the sumptuous Royal Palace Dar El-Makhzen and its royal gardens.

 

Fez has the oldest medina in the world:

Impossible to evoke a stay in Fez without mentioning its immense medina. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981, it is now one of the 4 oldest and best-preserved imperial cities in Morocco, in addition to being the largest and oldest medina in the world. Apart from the must-see sites such as the Quaraouiyine mosque or that of the Andalusians, you will discover all the facets of history, customs and local traditions in all their authenticity. Let yourself be carried away by the noise, the cries, the smells, the colors and above all, the conviviality of the place. 

 

And these are some of the reasons why you should visit Fes city, the iconic city, but there nothing like the full experience that you will get with our Fes to Marrakech desert tour 2 days, so what are you waiting for.
