 A fun outdoor activities journey to enjoy in Morocco. After breakfast, leave the city of Marrakech and reach the High Atlas Mountains as you continue east into the desert. Attempt to identify Tizi n Tishka, the highest pass at 2260 meters. Along the route, you will see many Berber communities comprised of typical mud-brick architecture. If you are going during the winter, you may see snow on the mountain peaks. 



Day 2 : Dades Valley – Todra Gorges – Merzouga desert

After the breakfast, our knowledgeable guide will lead you on a hike through Dades Valley. The canyon trek is the best start our exciting and enjoyable Morocco outdoor activities. This place is simply mesmerizing. The hike typically takes between 1 hour and 30 minutes and up to 2 hours.  The canyon, is rather big and features a gravel path as well as stunning views along the way. The route will ultimately wind its way through a series of narrower passages, similar to a slot canyon.


The Valley provides visitors with breathtaking vistas of the otherworldly scenery. After the hike, you will continue your journey down the valley filled with trees like as almond, fig, walnut, and birch. These plants provide a stunning contrast to the earthy tones of the surrounding cliffs and rock formations. Those who come to the Morocco, particularly for outdoor activities, should not miss the hike in the canyon because of the stunning vistas and unique rock formations.


Day 3 : Explore Merzouga the desert outdoor activities:

After breakfast, you will begin your outdoor activities in the Moroccan desert! Our knowledgeable desert guide will take you on an off-road excursion to a local family’s tent. Share a cup of tea with them and inquire about their way of life. Also see the abandoned mines in the region.


Today, there are two optional activities that you may schedule if you so want. The first activity is trekking on a neighbouring mountain. This option is, however, only accessible for travel between October and April. The alternative is to plan a trip to the local traditional market in Rissani. The market, is famous for its donkey parking, livestock trading, and traditional souks. Perhaps you’d like to have lunch at a local restaurant that serves the unique Berber pizza and coffee.

Today, female guests will have the opportunity to get the henna tattoo. Meet your camel guide in the evening, for a wonderfull camel ride experiene, and enjoy the colours across Erg Chebbi’s dunes. On your trip to a Berber camp, see the sun set over a vast sand sea. Do not pass up the opportunity to halt over a dune, leap down, and snap photographs. You will then engage in sandboarding before calling it a day.

Once entering the camp, our crew will serve you the mint tea before escorting you to your tent for the night. The tent has a private bathroom and shower.  After dinner, gather around a fire and listen to the local music as you unwind. Before retiring to bed, take a walk about and gaze at the desert sky, which is illuminated by numerous stars.


Day 4 : Merzouga desert – Ouarzazate 

Begin your day by witnessing a breathtaking sunrise over the dunes – it may be the most beautiful desert sunset you’ve ever seen. After breakfast in our luxurious desert glamping tent, return your camels to the village of Merzouga (the camel ride takes about an hour).

Next, enjoy an exhilarating quad bike ride across the Erg Chebbi dunes for about an hour. This is a popular activity for many guests and no expertise is required – your tour guide will provide safety instructions and help you operate the bike. Children can ride as passengers with their parents or the guide.

As you travel to Ouarzazate, cross the Anti-Atlas, also known as the low Atlas. Along the way, stop at the oasis village of Nkob, renowned for its 45 kasbahs. Take a break for lunch at one of the kasbah restaurants before continuing through the lush Draa Valley, dotted with date palms and ruined ksours and kasbahs.

Before arriving at your hotel in Ouarzazate, take in the stunning views of the majestic Atlas Mountains. Check in and savor a delicious dinner at the hotel.

Day 05: Ouarzazate – Horse Ride in Ait Benhaddou Ksar – Marrakech:

Start your day by exploring the film studios of Ouarzazate, where iconic movies like The Gladiator and Lawrence of Arabia were shot. After taking a tour of the studios, embark on a journey to Ait Benhaddou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the High Atlas Mountains. This kasbah, situated on an ancient camel caravan trade route, is a stunning example of Moroccan earthen clay architecture, with tree trunks and bamboo used for the roofs. During your visit, take a one-hour horse ride through the rocky desert and meet skilled artists and craftspeople who create and sell their work in the narrow lanes and passageways of the kasbah.

In the afternoon, return to Marrakech via the breathtaking Berber villages and green terraces of the High Atlas Mountains. Spend your final evening in Marrakech exploring the main square and souk, Jemaa el-Fnaa, where you can find everything from silk scarves to delicious tagine to snake charmers. Don’t miss the opportunity to sample the local cuisine and shop for souvenirs in this vibrant and bustling market.

I booked a private tour from Marrakech to Merzouga desert with other 5 girls. Mohamed was our driver, and Mohamed was our drive. Both of them were very nice and friendly, we learned so much information about Morocco and places we visited from Hassan. Our highlight was the overnight in the Sahara Desert and the day we spent in Merzouga. The food in the camp was great. We will recommend this tour to our friends in UK. Thank you again Mohamed and Hassan.

5 Day Desert Tour from Marrakech

We booked the 5-day desert tour from Marrakech and there is not enough I can say about how fun the tour is, and how great our guide Youssef was. The tour included visiting breathtaking landscapes, great local foods and markets. We had great out activities such as hiking, quad biking, sand boarding, and rock climbing. It was a busy itinerary that helped us make the most of our trip to the Moroccan dessert.


The best part of booking this trip was our tour guide Youssef. He spoke clear English, had incredible insight into the history and culture of Morocco, had great ideas for taking pictures for us, and above all he was willing and committed to making sure we were enjoying the experience. We spent a lot of time with him over the course of the five-day tour and I cannot recommend him enough. Youssef made our Moroccan experience special and unforgettable.

The true value of booking through this company is that they provide a tour that could not be replicated elsewhere. The tour is flexible (we had to change ours last minute due to weather) and they do a fantastic job of adjusting the tour to what you want it to be. They were also great with communication and feedback for any questions we had prior to booking. If you are looking to book a trip to Morocco, this is an absolute must.
THANK YOU SO MUCH Youssef and the team. You made our trip fantastic and something that I will never forget.
