With its rich people culture, magnificent scenery, and important architecture, Morocco provides visitors with a singular and interesting experience. A 3 days from Marrakech Desert Tour is a great opportunity to experience Morocco’s romanticist side. In this article, we’ll examine the tour’s specifics and search what makes it so memorable.

1st day : Marrakech – High Atlas – Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah – Ouarzazate – Dadés Valley

Free time for lunch in town.

Then we continue to Ouarzazate also known as “The gate of the desert” that in Berber language means “noiseless or without confusion”. Here we´ll see the Taourirt kasbah, one of the most spectacular ksars in Morocco.

The next site to visit is the Rose Valley going through the big Skoura palm grove; a beautiful place to contemplate more than 700.000 palms and numerous kasbahs that are built in the surrounding area. In this Valley damascenes roses are raised for cosmetic use such as the valued rosewater. The Rose Festival is held here annually in May, it is an important museum for Moroccan culture.

2nd Day : Dadés Valley – Todra Gorges – Merzouga – Camel Trek and overnight in Berber Camp

Then, we’ll travel to the stunning Merzouga dunes and embark on a one-hour camel ride to reach our nomad camp nestled in the heart of the Erg Chebbi dunes.
