You will rise early on the first day of your 3-day tour from Fes to Marrakech. You will leave Fez at 8:00 am to travel to Midelt. The two picturesque cities of Ifrane and Azrou will be passed through.

You will then proceed to drive to Midelt. This is a stunning Alpine region. This is a fantastic place to cool off and unwind after the bustle of Fes, surrounded by enormous pine trees and a calm mountain backdrop. You'll make a lunch stop.
You will go to Erfoud, the location of the Sahara desert's beginning, in the late afternoon. A short offroad will lead you to the edge of the golden dunes, where camels are waiting for you. From there, your luggage will be loaded into a 4x4 and driven to your luxurious campers.

The Erg Chebbi sand dunes, however, will be traversed by camels for roughly an hour. However, you don't travel all the way into the desert, so don't anticipate a long journey. You will have the opportunity to witness the magnificent sunset on the route. When you arrive at your luxury camp, you'll be greeted with tea and kind smiles.

Day 2: Merzouga – Rissani – Todra Gorges – Dades Gorges

Day 2: Merzouga – Rissani – Todra Gorges – Dades Gorges

You must get up as early as possible in the morning to catch the breathtaking dawn. After finishing breakfast at the camp, you will ride your camels back to the hamlet and leave the tranquility of the desert behind. You will make a pit stop at the Rissani market in the Tafilalet oasis on the way to the Todra Gorges.

Rissani; its humble outward look now conceals a spectacular past that includes Sijilmasa's entrepôt and the cradle of the Alawite dynasty. The main reason for constructing the tradepost of Sijilmasa here, on the outskirts of modern-day Rissani, in the middle of the eighth century was this location at the gates of the desert, at the intersection of two of the most significant trans-Saharan routes, and a few kilometers from a river and an oasis. It quickly became one of the main trading hubs in the area. Due to its desirable location, it was a sought-after target, which caused it to have an intensive and turbulent history (wars, captures, destruction, and rebuilding) until the 14th century when it served as the headquarters for the dynasty that is still in power today.
Moving on, you get to Todra Gorge, you'll have time to explore its 300-meter canyon walls on foot. Water springs from a rocky mountain in the picturesque Todra Gorge and cascades down a lush valley. It's one of the main tourist destinations in Morocco and a haven for hikers, bike riders, climbers, and photographers. The gorge has also been depicted in a 2012 Cadillac CTS commercial in the American TV program "Expedition Impossible".

You will also pass by the stunning Dades and Rose valleys on the way. The picturesque valleys of the Dades River are surrounded by hundreds of Islamic sites, citadels, palm trees, and desert sands, making it one of the most historic highways in the nation, whether you consider them to be one gorge or multiple. Travelers claim that the Dades Gorges sweeping crimson hills are what make the trip worthwhile. Visitors can explore this picturesque location on foot after driving up switchbacks and sipping a steaming cup of Moroccan mint tea at the gorge's top. A spectacular resting spot offers breathtaking vistas and unobstructed views of rolling red cliffs.

After that, you will wander the crowded market in Skoura's town center, where you will also get tajine, olives, salad, dates, pomegranates, and grapes.

You will also visit, Kasbah Amridil which was located on the outskirts of Skoura at the boundary between the desert and the palmeraie.

Following the old caravan route, you proceed down the Draa Valley's palm trees. You pass a number of historic Kasbahs, Tamnougalte being one of the most well-known.
