Day 1: Tangier–Chefchaouen–Fès (315 km) 6 Hours

You will be picked up from your hotel, airport, or harbor by your driver from Morocco Sahara Trips and begin our 6-day tour from Tangier, passing through the stunning Rif mountains and continuing to the charming blue city of “Chefchaouen,” where we will have free time to explore this enchanting little town.

Going through its small lanes painted in blue and white that will allow you to snap some stunning images, seeing its historic medina, Ras el Ma, “head of the water,” here is the spot at which the fresh mountain cascade seeps its way into town… A superb lunch will be served at a neighborhood restaurant.

In the morning, we will visit the famous Plaza Uta el-Hammam, and in the afternoon, after your visit, we will travel directly to Fes while enjoying wonderful views of the Rif mountains and green landscapes of northern Morocco, arriving in Fes in the late afternoon and staying overnight at a decorated hotel or riad.

Day 2: Fes Sightseeing tour

Following breakfast in your riad, the local guide will begin the tour of Fes so you can discover this beautiful city, the oldest, wealthiest, cultural, religious, spiritual, and mystical of Morocco’s four imperial towns, which has remained untouched by time.

You will tour the historic Jewish district of Mellah as well as the Royal Palace graveyard, where you will learn about Moroccan Jewish history. The tour includes the tile factory and a breathtaking panoramic view of the town.

Following that, you will begin with a walking tour through the small alleys, seeing the famed ancient tanneries, and then the Quaraouine Mosque and the University, the world’s oldest university, the Attarin Medersa, and the Najjarin Fountain, before being driven back to your riad.

Day 3: Fes, Middle Atlas Mountains, Tiz’n Talghamt, Ziz Valley, Merzouga Desert (480 km). 8 Hours

Your 6-day tour from Tangier to Merzouga continues into the Merzouga desert through the middle Atlas highlands, with a pleasant drive via Berber settlements.

Pause at the picturesque city of Ifrane (dubbed “Moroccan Switzerland”), then proceed to Azrou, the renowned cedar forest where you may observe monkeys, and finally to Midelt, where you can stop for lunch.

After that, we’ll head south to Erfoud, known for its fossils and its yearly festival date market, via the beautiful Ziz Valley, where we’ll stop to admire a nice panoramic view of the oasis scenery. In the afternoon, we’ll arrive at the impressive Erg Chebbi dunes for dinner and an overnight stay at the hotel in Merzouga.

Day 4: Explore the Merzouga area: Erg Chebbi, Camel Trek, and Night at a Desert Camp (60 km). 5 Hours

Following breakfast at your accommodation, we’ll begin our Merzouga 4×4 tour to discover varied and intriguing locations near the Erg Chebbi dunes. We’ll visit Hassi Labied oasis to view its irrigation canal and land cultivation, and then we’ll travel south to the seasonal Sriji lake (if it has water).

If you want to listen to the Gnawa music of the dark-skinned people who were taken to Morocco as slaves over a hundred years ago, we’ll proceed to Khamlia hamlet… After that, we’ll go to the M’ifis mines. Apart from tourists, the Merzouga desert is well-known for its minerals and fossils.

We’ll enjoy a drink of mint tea with a nomad Berber family that is still living in their tent amid the Sahara on our Merzouga 44 desert trip.

You’ll proceed to the camp, where you’ll be greeted with a drink of tea and may rest until dinner time. After dinner, there will be some traditional Berber drumming music, and you’ll sleep beneath a nomadic tent.

Day 5: Merzouga- Todgha Gorge- Dades Valley (280 km) 5 Hours

Today, because you’re already in the desert, it’s worth getting up early to witness the sunrise near the camp.

Continuing your 6-day Morocco itinerary, you will visit Rissani’s weekly market if it is one of the market days (Sunday, Tuesday, or Thursday), and we will pass through small Berber villages such as Touroug, Tinjdad, and Tinghir, where we will stop to admire its beautiful Todra valley full of palm trees and vegetation.
