1st day: Fes - Merzouga
Departure from Fes at 8 o’clock, travelling via Azrou, where you can see Barbary apes in the forest of the Middle Atlas. Lunch is in Midelt, “the apple capital”, at the foot of the Ayachi Mountain. We continue over the Tizi-n-Talremt pass and through the Ziz Valley. From here we reach Errachidia and then Erfoud, famous for its date festival and fossils. Our trip continues to the dunes of Merzouga to spend the night in a campsite.
2nd day: Merzouga
In the morning, a three-hour camel ride across the great sand dunes and through the stony Sahara, is scheduled, stopping to prepare lunch among the dunes. In the afternoon, a camel ride for another three hours is programmed to reach the dunes of Erg Chebbi so as to watch the sunset from the summit (250m). After sunset, the night will be spent in a nomad tent, which is also the venue for dinner.
3rd day: Merzouga - Ouarzazate
If you wake up early enough, you can watch the spectacle of the sunrise, when the colour of the dunes and the play of shadows are an awesome sight. The return to the hotel in Merzouga for having a shower is on camel back and, after having breakfast, we drive from Merzouga to the Todra gorges for lunch. The road passes through Rissani, Erfoud, Tinjdad, Tinghir and the Todra valley. Here there are plenty of opportunities to walk. In the afternoon, the itinerary continues to Ouarzazate via the road of a thousand kasbahs, the valley of the roses and the oasis of Skoura. In Ouarzazate, you stay in a hotel.
