Day Trip to Ouarzazate and Ait Ben Haddou from Marrakech

An exciting day trip to Ouarzazate in the south of Morocco begins with a drive over the Atlas Mountains. Cross Tizi n’ Tichka Pass – the highest in Morocco. Up, up, up and down again you will go as you marvel at these spectacular vistas, passing Berber settlements and donkey carts as you travel to Ouarzazate, widely known as the Hollywood of Morocco. Your first stop of the day will be at the Taourirt Kasbah. This is an important piece of Moroccan history and the last stronghold of the Glaoui family until the early 19th century, just before the French Occupation. Enjoy a lunch break and then head to the Atlas Film Studios and explore locations for movies such as Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, The Mummy franchise and so many more.

After your time in Ouarzazate you will make your way to Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah. This is the best example of kasbah architecture that exists today and in fact is still the home to a few Berber families. Wander the maze of streets up to the panoramic view point and look back across the landscape. Visit the worlds’ first bank while you are there.

We will pick you up and drop you off at your accommodations in Marrakech. Please wear good walking shoes and bring your camera!
