Our first stop will take place in the Kasbah of AIT BEN HADDOU, a fortified village and a UNESCO World Heritage. This Kasbah is well-known for being the setting of many movies such as, Lawrence of Arabia, Tea in The SAHARA, Babel, The Mummy, Prince of Persia and others. As we have lunch in a restaurant close to the Kasbah, we will head to the Hollywood of Morocco, Ouarzazate. In this touristic city, we will explore its main sites such as, the Atlas studios and the Kasbah of Taourirt. Then, we will continue our way to Dades Valley. In the valley, you will be given free time to enjoy its beauty and sightsee its rocks which take the shape of monkeys toes. Night will be spent in the valley.

The 2nd day: Boumalen Dades – Todra gorges-Tinjdad- Arfoud -Merzouga

            In the early morning, we will leave Dades Gorges towards Todra gorges, a series of high limestone river canyons near the city of Tinghir. As we arrive to Todra Gorges, you will have free time to explore the uniqueness of the place on your own. After that, we will continue our way to Merzouga via Tinjdad, where you will have lunch and Erfoud, which is known with its fossils and marbles shops. By the evening, we will have been in the heart of the southeastern desert of Morocco, Merzouga. In this village, we will ride camels to explore the dunes of Erg Chebbi and then climb a sand dune to sightsee a fabulous desert sunset. Following this, you will spend the night in a Bivouac where you will spend an unforgettable night full of Berber drums music, singing and dancing.
