Mesmerising Morocco Travels

Morocco Private Travel Adventures

Day 1: Marrakech Pick up from Marrakech airport.

Day- off to visit the city. Marrakech is a four-colour city: ochre-coloured from the ground, white from the Atlas Mountains, blue from the sky and green from the vegetation. Marrakech is the great level of Haouz, surrounded by the High Atlas Mountains. It was chosen by Abou Bakr, chief of Almoravide, for being an area with great water richness. The city was built with the region own materials: wood from the Atlas forests, blue stones and sand. Thus, Marrakech was given rise – the snow and gold oases- .

Day 2: Marrakech – Ouarzazate

Departure to the South. From the Ait Ourir village, the road becomes narrower to cross Tiz-in-Tichka neck with 2,260 meter-altitude. The slope is made through the ued Tamesnar valley. We could also visit the Irhem N’Ougdal tighremt (granary), an adobe and stone building whose towers allow the surveillance of the village surroundings. Other treasure of the region declared world heritage by UNESCO is Ait Benhaddou, which is fortified by gorgeous crenellated and decorative towers. This is one of the most beautiful villages of the Glaua region.

Day 3: Ouarzazate – Tineghir

Discovery of Skoura (42 km), located at the heart of the palm valley. We will walk through the oases whose exuberant vegetation gives value to the secret Kasbahs. From here, we will go to Dades Gorge . After that, we will go to Boulmane that appears between Dades sides- a road marked by kasbahs and ksours which offers an ochre-coloured, red and mauve landscape – a stony plateau where the camels graze. After a journey full of Ksours, oases and palm groves, we will reach Tineghir, 1,350 meter-altitude and partially surrounded by a palm grove.

Day 4: Tineghir – Erfoud – Merzouga

We will visit Todgha Gorge, whose walls become increasingly narrower to reach 300 meter-height. After visiting this spectacular landscape we will go to Tinejdad (55 km) and Touroug (35 km), surrounded by gorgeous oases. We will introduce into Jorf palm grove which is extended to Erfoud, where the best dried dates of the country are collected. Then, we will find the desert and its voluptuous, thin and gold dunes. Merzouga dunes are accessible by car thanks to the asphalt that

substituted the old track.

Day 5: Merzouga – Zagora

This itinerary crosses the south Saharan regions of Djebel Sagho through a tarmac road. At 3 km before reaching Rissani, we will find Alnif through a road which rises through the desert. After that, we will reach Mcessi, lost in the middle of the desert. After Alnif, we will reach the palm grove of Tazzarine. Beautiful villages surround Djebel Tizouguirine. We will go through Kob, Tansikht villages and we will incorporate into the Draa valley, huge greenness snake which crosses 250Km of desert and drives us to Zagora.

Day 6: Zagora – Ouarzazate

From Zagora we will go to Ouarzazate crossing the Draa valley (164Km of tarmac road) discovering a vast number of villages and oases. After Agdz, we will cross the heartshaped Djebel Sagho. This will assure an incredible tour.

Day 7: Ouarzazate – Marrakech

We will come back to Marrakech through Tiz-in-Tichka, in the heart of the Atlas Mountains. The slope offers an exceptional coloured landscape over Haouz level.
