This region, located near the Algerian border, contains the highest sand dunes in the Sahara. A unique place with majestic landscapes that will appeal to lovers of nature and the great outdoors.

Some of these dunes are up to 150 meters high, and the colors seen from above are striking, especially at sunrise and sunset.

Trekking and expeditions to explore this natural wonder start from the village of Merzouga. Led by an experienced guide, the first option (and the least degrading for this fragile environment) is to get there by camel.

More sporty, you can also rent a quad, a buggy or even a 4X4, but be careful to pass between the dunes so as not to damage them!

For the wonder of day and night, it is strongly advised to spend a night in a bivouac or under the stars, to contemplate the Milky Way.

Today Volubilis remains a major and well-preserved Roman site. It’s very interesting to visit because it’s particularly well preserved for a city dating back 2000 years!
