WELCOME TO MARRAKECH

WELCOME TO MARRAKECH

Upon arrival at the Marrakech airport, you will be greeted by an English-speaking assistant to provide you with all the necessary information for your stay in the city and accompany you in the transfer to the hotel in one of our private vehicles and help you with registration. The rest of the day will be to relax and enjoy the city at your own pace.

Marrakech is one of the most important cities in Morocco and one of the four imperial cities along with Meknes, Fez and Rabat. Founded in 1062, it was one of the country's capitals and has the largest traditional market in the region and one of the busiest squares on the continent and in the world.

MARRAKECH - KASBAH TELOUET - VALLEE D’OUNILA - KSAR AIT BENHADDOU - OUARZAZATE

After an exquisite breakfast you will leave early for Ouarzazate (the door of the desert) along the main road that passes through the highest mountain pass in North Africa, the Tizi-n-Tichka (2260 meters), you will pass through incredible landscapes dotted with small towns and vegetation. You will visit the Kasbah of Telouet, which is located on the old caravan route to the Sahara, and which belonged to one of the most powerful families in the country before the independence of the protectorate and was forgotten and abandoned since the independence of Morocco.

Then you will go to the Kasbah Ait Benhaddou, an old obligatory stop for camel caravans, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Considered the most impressive ksar (fortified city) in southern Morocco and the best preserved in the country, which as the sun shines takes on different shades of red depending on the time of day. It has also served as the setting for numerous films.

Finally you will arrive to Ouarzazate, which was a small commercial point in the journey of African merchants to reach the north of Morocco and Europe. During the French colonial period it served as a supply city, administrative center, customs office and base for the French aviation. The most important film studios in Morocco (Atlas Studios), the largest in the world, are also located here. You will visit the city of Ouarzazate panoramically and rest with a photo session in front of the Kasbah of Taourirt, also a World Heritage Site.

Dinner and overnight at the hotel.

Tip Greca: Visit the Al Mouahidine square in Ouarzazate, a quite busy place full of cafes, restaurants and small shops.

OUARZAZATE - TINGHIR - ERFOUD - MERZOUGA

After a typical and tasty Moroccan breakfast you will leave for Tinghir passing through "the route of the kasbahs", a series of adobe fortresses with battlemented towers made of raw brick located in a spectacular landscape where the desert and the mountains meet, passing through the palm grove of "Skoura", an oasis with more than 700,000 palm trees that stands out in the arid plateau of the Dades Valley that you will visit briefly. Next you will arrive at Tinghir, which stands out for being one of the most beautiful landscapes of the trip with "the Todra Gorges", one of the most spectacular rocky canyons in the world, a place of great reputation among climbers.

Then you will go to Erfoud to enter the desert, where the road will get harder and the towns you will pass through will be more authentic as you enter the domain of the people of the desert. Erfoud is considered the gateway to the desert and is an old trading center where countless fossils can be found. From here everything will be a dirt track until you reach the desert of Merzouga, where you will stay in our Berber camp under a sky full of stars like you have never seen in your live.

Dinner and accommodation in Berber tents.

Tip Greca: You can take the opportunity to bring a fossil as a gift.

You will go on a trip through the dunes of Erg Chebbi, which reach an astonishing height of 150 meters. You will cross small towns and oases until you reach Khamlia, a small town inhabited by the ethnic minority of the "Gnawa", very hospitable, whose ancestors go back to the black slaves brought to sub-Saharan Africa. A mystical sect of healer musicians who practice ritual possession ceremonies of spirits and who stand out for their spiritual music (Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO), the old mines of Mifiss, exploited during the French protectorate from which it was mainly extracted lead and today a little abandoned and small fossil deposits.

After our adventure through the deep desert you will leave for Zagora enjoying fantastic desert landscapes dotted with Berber villages until you reach Rissani, cradle of the current dynasty (Alawite dynasty) and an old commercial center in which its market and its famous donkey parking stand out. They´ll show you an authentic Morocco that has several monuments of interest. It is located in the great palm grove of Ziz, formed by kilometers of palm trees that make up this valley that runs along the river of the same name. Here you will visit the Mausoleum of Moulay Ali Cherfi (with a monumental door, covered in green ceramics and crowned by a dome), founder of the Alahuite dynasty and which is located in a large square next to the Ksar Aber, a 19th century fortress.

Dinner and accommodation in Zagora.

Tip Greca: Moroccans come to Erg Chebbi to take baths in the sand, they are buried up to their necks in the hot sand for a few minutes at a time. This is considered to be a treatment for rheumatism.

In the afternoon you will continue with a visit to the Majorelle Garden, designed in 1924 on behalf of the French painter Jacques Majorelle, who fell in love with the city and built a chalet and a botanical garden in which he planted a wide variety of trees and plants from multiple sources. In 1980 the designer Yves Saint Laurent and his friend Pierre Bergé bought the estate and restored the chalet and garden.
