Morocco is a land of contrasts and an exotic destination that will captivate your senses. This 5 days tour from Marrakech to Fes is a voyage of discovery, taking in everything from the busy districts of the red city to the serene desert scenery.

In just five days, you will visit stunning locations used for science fiction and classic Hollywood movies, spend one-night camping in the desert, ride camels twice, witness the sunset and sunrise, eat Berber food, and learn about a culture you never knew existed.
Nothing compares to five-star glamping sites and endless stretches of sand on the horizon with nothing but the sound of your own breath for company. The chance to visit the desert is once in a lifetime. Actually, this tour takes you through time as well as across locations. Visit the desert for far more reasons than you might think besides just to view the sand.
From Marrakech, one can go to the arid Sahara Desert, which makes up around three-quarters of this country. Rolling dunes and parched landscapes mark the beginning of the great Sahara, along with distinctive nomad tribes and fleeting glimpses of the essential role that this area played in the Silk Road.

At the airport, our driver will be waiting for you. Your five-day adventure will begin with transportation from the airport to your Marrakech accommodation. Your itinerary's first day starts with a trip from the red city to Ait Ben Haddou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its traditional architecture and historical importance. The settlement, which consists of a collection of kasbahs, or conventional walled homes, is situated in the Atlas Mountains. Visitors can take a guided tour of this land to learn about the settlement's history and architecture. The village has served as a popular filming location for films including Gladiator and Game of Thrones. You will continue on your way to Ouarzazate. Movie enthusiasts love visiting this site because it is the location of Atlas Studios, where several well-known films, including Lawrence of Arabia, The Mummy, and Gladiator, were shot. The sets and costumes used in these films are shown during studio tours for visitors. Additionally, this land is well-known for its lovely parks and gardens, such as the Jardin de Ouarzazate, which is a wonderful spot to unwind and enjoy the stunning views of the mountains around. Traveling on this route is an excellent opportunity to discover the country's varied landscapes and cultures. The excursion gives guests the chance to explore traditional Moroccan architecture, discover the area's history, and take in the breathtaking Atlas Mountain environment. You'll also get a taste of Moroccan movies on this day.
Your second day of this 5 days tour from Marrakech to Fes begins with a delicious breakfast. First, you will visit the Taourirt Kasbah, a 19th-century palace that served as a local Pasha's residence. The palace, which is accessible to the public, is a superb illustration of conventional Moroccan architecture. After that, proceed to Skoura, a stunning palm grove situated in the Atlas Mountains. Visit the Amridil Kasbah, a typical Moroccan stronghold that has been restored. It provides a wonderful view of the Atlas Mountains, the palm grove, and the oasis. Visit a small eatery in Skoura for lunch to sample authentic Moroccan cuisine. Continue to Kelout M'gouna, a little settlement in the Valley of Roses, in the afternoon. The town's annual rose festival, which takes place in May, is well-known. Visit a nearby rose distillery to learn more about how rose oil and water are created. Take in the breathtaking vistas of the Dades Gorge as you proceed to the Dades Valley. This valley, which is traversed by the Dades River, has stunning red rock formations, palm palms, and Berber communities.
Your 3rd day of the 5 days tour from Marrakech to Fes begins with breakfast. As you go through tens of thousands of classic Kasbahs, you will be stunned by the spectacular sight of the bustling Berber settlements in the Dades valley. The province of Thingir is home to the magnificent Atlas Mountains, a portion of Dades Valley. From the oasis village of Boumalne Dadès in the north to the settlement of M'semrir, there is a gorge known as the "Gorges du Dadès," also called the Dades Gorge. It is followed by a green river channel that irrigates the valley to make it lush and provides food for the numerous small towns. It is also worthwhile to visit a favorite tourist site to see the numerous well-preserved clay fortresses, commonly known as Kasbahs, that the Berbers initially built to protect themselves from enemies. When you get to Tineghir with its gorgeous palm grove, you'll keep on and wander along the 300-meter-high canyons there. This is surely a unique place for mountaineers. The stone walls in this place are highly unusual since they can change color every day. Particularly towards dusk, the canyon's sides begin to turn from orange to light. The gorge is beneath a twisting river. Without a sure, Todra will stifle your desire to travel and make you agree to challenge hikes. Isn't it amazing and fascinating? Without a doubt, you won't want to pass up this chance. You'll visit the Erg Chebbi dunes in the Merzouga Desert later. You'll have time for lunch en route before reaching Merzouga in the evening. You will ride camels for more than an hour in the desert where you are located deep inside the Sahara. You'll be able to see the most beautiful sunset in the world as you go. Watching the sun slowly set between the sand dunes and how it warmly tints the lonely terrain is quite a sight. An hour later, you arrive at your camp. After that, you'll savor a classic Berber tagine lunch while listening to traditional Berber music, sipping delicious mint tea, and gazing up at the stars and the rising moon in the stunning Sahara Desert. Whether it's the great open spaces, the lack of light pollution, or the darkness, there's something amazing about stargazing there. Whatever the reason, stargazing under the desert sky at night is an unforgettable experience.
You will rise early on this day to see the dawn. It's a very magical experience because of how vast the surroundings are and how the light slowly flitters across the sand. Your drained muscles feel suddenly revitalized as you watch the sky begin to light up. You feel your energy levels rising as the sun ascends higher and higher in the sky. At your camp, you then have a typical Moroccan breakfast. Then we embark on a tour that includes camel trekking before arriving back at our accommodation in Merzouga. The lake of Merzouga (Dayet Sriji), which is home to unique species, will be our first stop on our journey to the Sahara desert. Then, in order to fully experience the breathtaking scenery of the dunes, we travel far into the desert. In addition, we'll travel to Khamlia, often known as the "Village of the Blacks," to learn more about the way of life of these traditionally nomadic people. There are 334 residents living in the "Village of the Blacks." They are a hybrid of Gnawa and Berber. During the time of slavery, Gnawa people from Sub-Saharan Africa were taken to Morocco. The locals are welcoming, kind, and gracious. They regard music as sacred and as having great importance. We shall be their guests, and as we enjoy a cup of tea and their music, we stay. Visits to the former site of the Rally Paris-Dakar are also part of the program. Then we reach the Mifis mines, which France once used for mining. We will partake in a traditional Tagine or Couscous for lunch in the hamlet. Before ending the day in the hotel, we next visit the spectacular oases on the edge of the sand dunes. In Merzouga, a day is a voyage through history, culture, and the outdoors. It's a day you'll never forget and an event you won't soon forget.
After breakfast, the fifth and last day of your 5 days tour from Marrakech to Fes will start as you pass through Tafilalet Palm Grove, the biggest palm grove on earth. There are numerous palm trees to be seen along the 20-kilometer journey. You can travel along this route to reach the Ziz Valley, where a river feeds a palm grove after coming from the high Atlas Mountains. From this elevated vantage point, you will pause to take in the breathtaking view of the valley and the settlement of Aoufous. At Midelt, smack in the center of the Atlas Mountains, you'll make another stop. Here, you'll have some free time to have lunch and relax. If you're lucky, as you move through the Cedar Woods in the afternoon, you might come across some monkeys. The next place you'll see is Ifrane, which is situated on the northern slope of the Middle Atlas at 1630 meters above sea level. Due to its broad avenues, spotless urban development, gardens, open areas, and architecture, this city is said to resemble a Swiss town. Ifrane feels out of place in Morocco. Because of this, Michlifen has earned the moniker "the Moroccan Switzerland," and if that weren't enough, it has a sizable ski resort. It also has a vibrant nightlife because of the abundance of bars and clubs located in its center. Later in the day, you will arrive in Fez, where our services will come to an end. Your transportation to the airport will be based on your flight schedule. Your 5 days tour from Marrakech to Fes ends at this point. We can begin and end your vacation anywhere in Morocco, securing your tour and helping you organize your schedule.
