After breakfast in Marrakech you will be picked up and drive towards the High Atlas Mountains via Tahnnaout, Oued Ghighaya & Asni, enjoying the stunning view of the villages along the valley. Upon arrival in Imlil you will meet the guide and multeer and then start the trek & climb to Tizi Mzik pass (2684m) where you will be rewarded with spectacular views over Imlil Valley & Toubkal Summit. You will then continue to Tamsoulte to visit the highest waterfalls in the Atlas Mountains and then down the Azzaden Valley through juniper forest to get to Tizi Oussem village. Overnight at the Guest house in the village.

After breakfast enjoy the sunshine on this colourful valley and its marvelous typical Berber villages. Leave Tizi Oussem & continue down to Id Issa village before heading up to Tizi Oudid mountain pass. Then cross Mattat village where you will get lunch under walnut groves and relax near the river. On the afternoon there is a short trek up the valley to Imlil where you will spend the night

DAY 03: IMLIL DADES VALLEY

You will be picked up from your accommodation in Imlil and head out over the Atlas Mountains, driving over the stunning Tizi-n-Tichka mountain pass. You’ll pass through lots of Berber villages, and once you’re in the desert you’ll see riverside oases and barren hillsides dotted with Kasbahs (fortified dwellings that house families and their livestock). Along the way, you will have the option either to take a break and visit the Ouarzazate Film Studios or stop for a hike. Once you reach Dades Gorge, you have the option of going for a hike, or relaxing at your hotel

DAY 04: DADES VALLEY TODRA GORGE MERZOUGA

After breakfast you will drive from Dades Valley to Todra Gorge – a massive fault dividing the High Atlas mountains, rising up 300 metres in a narrow valley with palmeries and Berber villages. Here, you can go for a hike to explore the palmery, a green oasis full of large date palms. After lunch you’ll head further into the desert to the gateway town of Merzouga to pick up supplies for your desert trip. You will then drive on to a Kasbah to pick up your camel. At sunset, you’ll trek for an hour-and-a-half by camel to a Berber camp where you will enjoy a traditional Moroccan dinner, and sleep under the stars or in tents at a desert camp

DAY 05: MERZOUGA MARRAKECH

You will wake up early , just prior to sunrise and take the hour-and-a-half camel ride at sunrise to explore the area further and then head back to Merzouga.

What languages do you speak?

We can provide service in English, Portuguese. Spanish, Italian. French, Arabic and, of course, Berber.

How many people will be on my tour?

Our tours are private. Your guide travels with just you, or with your family or friends if you book as a group. We do not add others to your trip. If you are spending a night at the camp in the dunes, it’s possible that others will also be staying there. You will, however, have a private tent.

What’s included?

Your tour includes hotels or, if in the dunes, camp accommodations. It also includes transport by 4×4 (or camel where applicable), as well as breakfasts and dinners. You are responsible for covering the cost of your lunches and drinks.

What is the price?

Prices depend on accommodations. We can arrange for luxury accommodations at 4-star hotels or for something simpler if you’re on a budget. Call or email us with your preferences and we’ll give you a price. If you wish to arrange a trip around Christmas or New Years, please contact us early because some hotels may fill up and we’ll have less flexibility.

What about tipping?

Tipping is completely optional. If you feel your guide has provided you with excellent service, tips are appreciated, but  never expected.

Two nights tour to the desert. I really enjoyed the night at the tends. Got a luxury one to avoid the extreme cultural shock and it was an excellent choice. Unexpectedly cool! Freezing at night and early morning obviously, cause you know.. It's the desert, **bring very warm clothes**. But awesome atmosphere with the team who work there. Excellent and totally recommendable!!read more

Great tour we really enjoyed the experience, 2 nights probably not long long enough to get the feel for a truly amazing country with such spectacular scenery. Our guide Mustapha, has endless knowledge of his wonderful country and made us feel very welcome while showing us as much as he could in the 3 days we were with him. Thank you we can't wait to go backread more

Absolutely incredible experience! A lot of driving, but beautiful scenery all around. However, once we reached the Sahara, every minute of driving was worth it. The desert is even more breathtaking in real life than in pictures. We highly recommend this trip!read more
