3-Day new year desert tour from Fes to Merzouga Desert and Marrakech
Day 1: Fez – The Merzouga Desert
We’ll pick you up from your desired location (at a time previously arranged with our tour guide) with a 4x4 and travel through The Mid-Atlas and Cedar Forest to the Merzouga desert. Along the route to the desert we’ll also pass through Ifrane, Midelt, The Ziz valley, Erfoud and Rissani (during which time we’ll make stops for mint tea and pictures). Our day comes to a close as we arrive in Merzouga, spending the night at a local hotel / riad (including a complimentary dinner and breakfast).
Day 2 : The Merzouga desert
On day 2 we’ll explore the desert region and The Erg Chebbi Dunes, making a circuit of the desert dunes where you’ll experience firsthand the captivating contrast of the Moroccan nomadic (Berber) way of life. From there we’ll pay a visit to the “black village” of Khamlia, where we’ll enjoy a show by the renowned Gnawan musicians, followed by a traditional Berber pizza for lunch in the ancient capital of Rissani. Our afternoon will be spent riding camels and enjoying the sunset behind the dunes before heading back to our camp. There, we’ll be treated to a traditional tagine dinner, drink delicious local mint tea, and delight in traditional Berber music underneath the star and moonlit sky of the wondrous Sahara Desert.
Day 3 : The Merzouga desert – Agdez – Ouarzazatte – Marrakesh
After enjoying a sunrise in the desert, we continue our 3-Day Desert Tour and return upon camelback to a local hotel where you’ll be given the chance to freshen up. After a complimentary breakfast we begin our drive back passing first through Rissani and Agdz, then through The Draa Valley to reach Ouarzazate, where we’ll stop for pictures. We’ll continue on through the Tizi-n-Tichka Mountain Pass to reach your hotel in Marrakesh, where our Private 3-Day New Year Desert Tour ends.
