5 / 5 total 4 reviews
Duration: 2 days
Product code: 3280
Overview

 From Fez at you will begin your ascent into the Atlas mountains where you will pass through Ifrane, a winter ski resort in a totally un-Moroccan style built by the French in the 1930's to resemble a Swiss village.

Visit the cedar forest in Azrou and see the monkeys in the trees. Most of the first day will be spent winding your way through the beautiful forests, springs, jagged rock faces, and Berber villages as you cross the Atlas Mountains and begin to descend towards the Sahara Desert. On route to Merzouga stop at a place with a panoramic view of a huge oasis of palm trees!

In Rissani you change to a 4x4 vehicle to drive into the desert. Spend a night in a Berber tent after watching the stars from the clear skies of the desert.

The next day, take a walk over the sand dunes and watch the sunrise from just behind the Algerian border, which is about 31 miles (50 km) from Merzouga.

Take a camelback to the hotel in Merzouga, where you will take shower and have breakfast. Then take the 4x4 back to Rissani where you will change into your minivan. From there you will take the road to Fez.

This trip gave a very good glimpse into the other non-urban areas of the country. The Sahara Desert should be a bucket list on everyone's "to do" and the trip allowed a good feel for this natural wonder. The camel ride and luxury desert camp were a bit "contrived" and staged but worth the extra spent to have better attention. All in all, it was a great way of seeing more of Morocco and it's culture.

Very well organised and truly memorable experience. I would suggest though that ideal itinerary would be Fes - Desert tour - Marrakech. to get the best of the long trip.
