Our 3 day Morocco desert tour from Marrakech to Fes is one of the most popular desert tours that connects these two amazing Imperial cities.
The 3 day Morocco desert tour from Marrakech to Fes shows you a huge part of southern Morocco.
Departing early morning from the red city of Marrakech you will drive over the High Atlas Mountains, crossing beautiful scenery on the windy roads dotted with Berber villages blending into the hillsides. Arrive at infamous kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, a fortified village and to Ouarzazate with its cinematic attractions.
Spend the first night in the heart of the Dades Valley in a traditional but comfortable hotel.
The second day you can enjoy a short walk in Todra Gorge with its sheer rock face viewed from the river bed that winds through, before heading towards Merzouga in a more arid plain at the beginning of the deserts.
Once in Merzouga, ride on camels and go deep into the desert to spend a night in a nomad camp. Enjoy a starry night under a clear and peaceful sky.
On the third day head through a different terrain again and head towards Fes. Cross many villages and valleys along with the beautiful cedar forest. Stop and see playful monkeys before reaching the cultural capital of the country, Fes. This is where your driver will drop you off at your hotel. Let us know if you want to spend some time exploring either Marrakech or Fes and we will be happy to offer you private guided tours of both cities.
There are TWO options for the desert tour:
1 – Comfort Option.

Please let us know when you are booking which option you would like so we can quote your trip accordingly.
The best way to get from Marrakech to Fes, has to be by camel, through the Sahara Desert. Well, maybe not the entire trip as they did in centuries past. We will take you by road much of the way.
Depart from your accommodation in Marrakech, we will take you on a 2 night adventure through the Sahara for a night of desert camping.
Leave the driving to us and the big bus trips to the others. You will have your own vehicle and driver, your own schedule, and your own adventure. Join us for a trip through time and sand and southern Morocco.
