Then, learn about the Berber culture, and follow their steps along the trade routes from North Africa to the Sahel at the Tiskiwin Museum, its displays range from authentic Berber tents and carpets to fine basketwork and ancient jewelry. Continue to Dar El Bacha considered one of the most beautiful palaces in the red city. Visitors can discover the ceiling with multicolored mosaics and Berber-style architecture.

We leave early in the morning from your hotel or riad .On the way to the Skoura Valley, we cross the high atlas mountains with 2260 meters of height with an incredible natural landscape until reaching the Kasbah of Aït-Ben-Haddou one of the oldest Kasbahs in Morocco and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We will visit this site with a local guide and we will lunch nearby.
The Kasbah is a group of several small fortresses, or (Kasbahs), arriving to have ten meters of height each one. Most of the city’s inhabitants now live in a more modern village on the other side of the river; however, eight families still live in the old Kasbah and making this visit is like stepping into a movie as been filmed there such as Lawrence of Arabia, The Mummy, Gladiator, Alexander and Prince of Persia. After the visit we will drive to your place for overnight in ouarzazate.
After breakfast we will drive to Merzouga, crossing many beautiful landscapes.
We drive through the Anti-atlas region by the Valley of Draa, more than 45 km and millions of lush palm trees, before we stop in a small town named Alnif for lunch. After lunch we continue the drive to Merzouga. We arrive before nightfall and your camels will be waiting to take you on a trip to the camp. Dining in a tent under the stars, after you can joint around the big bonfire.
Wake up early and enjoy abeautiful sunrise on top of a dune.fter breakfast get ready for another hour of camel ride back to the meeting point in Merzouga.
Our driver will be waiting for you to travel through the Draa Valley crossing beautiful mountain landscapes from the anti-atlas to the Fint oasis.
The Fint Oasis, located 10 kilometers south of Ouarzazate it’s called desert’s garden.
It is nearly impossible to imagine traversing the dry, desolate terrain of the Anti-Atlas Mountains that any place so green, lush and full of life can be on the horizon. But suddenly you spot it, a massive, verdant palm grove, teeming with plant, animal and village life.
Composed of four traditional villages which blend Sub-Saharan, Moroccan and Berber culture, the Fint Oasis is a laid-back place where donkeys and other beasts of burden still roam the streets and women still wash clothes in the river. Though largely unknown outside of Morocco, the Fint Oasis has served as the setting for a number of Hollywood films.
It’s in this piece of verdant paradise that we will dine and sleep.
After breakfast, we return on the road towards the city of Ouarzazate, this city known as “the gate of the desert”, Ouarzazate and the surrounding region is frequently as a setting by filmmakers from around the world. In addition to the landscapes, another of the area’s great attractions is the quality of light, with a bright sun for at least 300 days a year.
Films like Lawrence of Arabia (1962), The Man Who Would Be King (1975), The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), The Mummy (1999), Gladiator (2000), Kingdom of Heaven (2005), Asterix and Obelix – (2004), Kundun (1997), Legionnaire (1998), Hanna (2011), The Hills Have Eyes (2006), and war of Thrones.
After visiting the film studios (optional) we continued our journey through the high Atlas mountains to Marrakech by taking a break for lunch in a pleasant restaurant in the mountains then back to Marrakech through the tizin tichka valley, this stretch of road is considered one of the most picturesque of Morocco, for the breathtaking views of the highest mountains of the High Atlas.
Along the road or near it there are several traditional villages with houses of stone or of beaten earth, surrounded by terraces and walnut trees, in which the inhabitants dedicate themselves to the agriculture.
We will arrive at Marrakech at the end of the day.
Today, we will assist you to Casablanca airport for your return flight.
