Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Marrakech

Welcome to Morocco! Be sure to arrive in time for your pre-departure meeting at 6:00pm. Your first night will be spent at our pre-expedition hotel in the center of town. (Dinner and overnight - Marrakech)

Day 2: Gorge du dades

Leaving Marrakech, we drive through the Gorges du Dades, a stunning valley which extends from the High Atlas to the Jebel Saghrou range in the south. Berbers built many kasbahs in the vicinity of gorges for defence purposes. These many kasbahs combined with the stunning natural beauty make this a beautiful region through which to travel. (Breakfast, lunch, dinner and overnight - Gorge du Dades)

Day 3: Todra Gorge

Today is spent exploring Todra Gorge, from its plunging depths to its 1000 foot high cliffs. Discover the charm of Todra on your trek. Witness it's changing colors as the sun slowly moves from east to west. Or alternatively, you could choose just to chill out for the day. (Breakfast, lunch, dinner and overnight - Todra Gorge)

Day 4: Sahara Desert - Berber Camp

Crossing the Jebel Saghrou, we head down to Erg Chebbi sand dunes, which signify the commencement of the mighty Sahara Desert. Transferring to camels, we trek into the desert to a berber camp, enjoying local food and a night under the Saharan stars.
(Breakfast, lunch, dinner and overnight - berber camp)

Day 5: Ouarzazate

Leaving the desert, we travel through the verdant Draa valley, along the route of 1000 Kasbahs, a beautiful landscape. We continue on to Ouarzazate, which African traders once used on their journeys up to Europe. It has also been used as a film set, for Alexander the Great, The Last Temptation of Christ and The Living Daylights. (Breakfast, lunch, dinner and overnight - Ouarzazate)

Day 6: Aït Benhaddou

We head to Aït Benhaddou, a ‘fortified city', situated along the former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech. It is situated on a hill along the Ouarzazate River and boasts some beautiful examples of kasbahs, some of which remain inhabited. Granted UNESCO World Heritage listing, the site had been the setting for many films including Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator.We then travel over the high atlas mountains on our way to Marrakech. (Breakfast, lunch, dinner and overnight - Marrakech)

Days 7: Marrakech

Glowing red, like a welcoming campfire, against the snowcapped High Atlas Mountains, the very name Marrakech conjures up images of an exotic, distant city, of magic carpets and snake charmers and of frankincense and myrrh brought in by camel trains. Set within the rose-colored walls of the Medina lies a reality that is not that far removed from an exotic film set – a tangle of winding streets that open onto verdant gardens and dark alleyways that lead to bustling souks.

The focal point is the central square, the Djemâa-el-Fna, an extraordinary gathering and market place. Full of color, spicy aromas and traders. It is best seen in the evening when overflowing with food stalls, dancers, acrobats, fortune tellers, musicians and henna artists. A good place to practice your bargaining skills. And towering over all this is the Koutoubia mosque, the tallest building in the city, and a reminder of the importance of Islam to the lives of the city's residents. Try a traditional hamman, a steam bath followed by an exfoliating massage - its the ideal end to the day. (Breakfast, lunch, dinner and overnight - Marrakech)
