ESSAOUIRA -MARRAKECH – KSAR AIT BEN HADDOU - OUARZAZATE
We will leave Essaouira early in the morning to go to Marrakech and then cross the High Atlas, Morocco's tallest peak. There will be opportunities to shoot millions of photos from panoramic viewpoints. The renowned ancient Kasbah of Telouet, which formerly functioned as both the grand house and the capital of the formidable Glaoui tribe, is the location of the first planned stop. When shall we enjoy our leisurely meal here? Afterwards, the path traverses the Ounila Valley and arrives at the Ksar of Ait Ben Haddou, which is the most well-known and ancient Ksar in Morocco and a UNESCO World Heritage site. There is another 30 km of road leading to Ouarzazate, where you spend the night in a traditional riad, after viewing the ksar.
OUARZAZATE – SKOURA OASIS – VALLEY OF ROSES – BOUTAGHRAR – DADES CANYON – TODGHA GORGE
Following breakfast, you travel via the Skoura Oasis on your way to the Dades Gorge. Here, surrounded by palm trees, are a number of old kasbahs, some of which are tragically in ruins. From this point on, our journey passes through the Valley of Roses, or Kela'a M'gouna, which is well-known for its May Rose Festival. Here, we pause to view the locally produced cosmetic items crafted from the valley's profusion of flowers. These goods are highly prized and well-known throughout Morocco. You take an off-road route from here to have a better view of the surroundings. You will make stops at caverns along the route, which are utilized by any Berber nomads who happen to pass by and establish a home there. We are going to have a drink of tea with them before moving on to lunch at Dades Gorge.
After traveling a short distance, you spend the night in a hotel or kasbah in Tinghir, which is home to the remarkably unique Toudgha gorges.
TODGHA GORGE – ERFOUD – RISSANI - MERZOUGA
There are options to walk after breakfast, either along the road on the opposite side of the gorges or along the river via the gardens. We'll have lunch here or in the bivouac in the Erg Chebbi dunes later on. The Oasis of Tafilalet, close to Erfoud, is well-known for its Date Festival.
On the way there, you pass through Rissani, home of the Alaouite family that holds the current Moroccan throne. After receiving a glass of tea upon arrival at the bivouac, you can ride a camel to the top of the dunes to witness the sunset. At the base of the dunes, there is a nomad tent where guests spend the night after dinner.
MERZOUGA – NOMADS - KHAMLIA – RISSANI – DRAA VALLEY - AGDEZ
We will be exploring the desert region today. If you get up early, you may witness the sunrise spectacular, when the color of the dunes and the dance of shadows is an amazing sight. We'll take you on a tour around the sand dunes where you can witness the nomadic people's way of life and the breathtakingly shifting dunes' contrasts. We are going to the Gnawa musicians' "black village" in Khamlia. Proceed via Rissani to the vast Tafilalet palm grove. Route towards the Anti-Atlas mountains (1660m high), the little Berber settlement of Agdez, Tazarine Oasis, N'kob, and the Draa Valley (lunch on the spot). Night and dinner in Riad.
AGDZ –TALIOUINE – TAROUDANT
Leave Agdz for Taroudant and head downhill to Tazenakht, a significant carpet weaving hub. You are currently in the land of saffron! If you happen to be in Taliouine in October, plan to visit the saffron harvest festival or just stop by the saffron museum. Proceed to Taroudant. In Taroudant for the night. Supper and the Evening in Riad.
TAROUDANT - AGADIR - TAGHAZOUT - ESSAOUIRA
Leave Taroudant for Essaouira, a pleasantly laid-back coastal fishing town with a preserved architecture, charming medina, and opportunities to discover Phoenician, Berber, Portuguese, Jewish, and French history. Wander the calm squares, peruse galleries and artisan stores, and take in the handicrafts made from the unique "tuya" wood that is only found in Morocco. You may also visit the port to see what the day's catch is. We will end our service by dropping you off at your hotel or residence.
