The first day of the Morocco desert tour from Casablanca to Marrakech 4 days will have an early start with a small tour in Casablanca, where you shall visit the impressive Hassan II Mosque, one of the largest mosques in the world.

The Sahara trip to Marrakech will take us down south, passing by the ski resort of Ifrane (the Moroccan Switzerland) built by the French in the 1930's to resemble a Swiss village and by Azrou, a famous Berber village located in the middle of the largest cedar forest in Morocco and the home of Barbary apes. During this journey, you will experience beautiful sceneries of the Middle and High Atlas Mountains and you will also catch a first glimpse of the South’s incredible architecture. After lunch in Midelt, famous for its fossils and rocks, you shall continue the Morocco desert tour towards the city of Errachidia. What is more, you will travel along the luxuriant Ziz Valley, stopping for panoramic views along the way to Erfoud and Rissani, a huge oasis containing over six million palm trees, edged by many Kasbahs (fortified villages). After passing a route that will mark the transition to the desert, we reach Merzouga, where you will be welcomed with the traditional Moroccan mint tea before beginning your camel trekking adventures towards the location where you will spend the night, a camp with Nomadic tents. After crossing the sand dunes at sunset, you shall arrive at the desert camp.

Merzouga Desert - Tinejdad - Tinghir - Todra Gorge – Dades Gorge

While passing through the Tinghir oasis, you will enjoy a walk along the Todra river bank and have lunch in one of the restaurants located in the Todra (Todgha) Canyons. The Todra Gorge is considered to be one of the most enchanting and unique places in the High Atlas.
