Day 3: Fez – Fez:

Free day in FEZ. When entering the streets of its medina (old city) we will feel that time goes back: the union structure is still present at work, the narrowness of its streets does not allow other means of transport than donkeys and a constant tingling of people moves through the labyrinthine streets in the middle of which we will be surprised by neighborhoods such as the Andalusian and magnificent mosques and Koranic schools. Fez has always been associated with study and religiosity, and remains the spiritual capital of Morocco. After visiting the medina, another option is to walk aimlessly through the streets of Fez-Jdid, where the royal palace, the mellah (Jewish quarter) and the oldest mosque in Fez are located. Dinner and accommodation according to selected hotel category. (Visit of Fez) http://riad-fez-yamanda.fes-hotels.net/fr/ or similar

We will then take a short walk through the dunes of the Erg Chebbi in 4×4, an expanse of sand desert where the Great Dune of Morocco is located, more than 250 meters high, connecting the track with part of the route followed by the old Paris -Dakar and with the mountains that border Algeria in the background. We will make a stop at a panoramic point where we can contemplate the Erg Chebbi together. We will then go to Rissani, the first imperial city, with its interesting market, where nomads from the surrounding area come to sell their livestock and buy the goods they need. There you can taste if you fancy the tasty Berber pizza (it is only cooked here) and we will continue our way to Ouarzazate through the Draa Valley, one of the longest rivers in Morocco. Stops to contemplate the charming adobe kasbahs and Berber villages that dot the route and the interesting geological formations of the Draa Valley.

Day 6: Ouarzazate – Ait Ben Haddou – Marrakech:

Breakfast and visit the famous Ait Ben Haddou (Cultural Heritage of Humanity). The trip is a succession of strong points. Today’s day is another one of them. The 200 km that separates Ouarzazate from Marrakech run through the High Atlas. The road must be traveled slowly, for its beauty and because it is a mountain pass that crosses the Atlas at almost 2,300 m. To round off the spectacularity of the day, we will make the path following the old caravan route that linked the two cities through the Ounila Valley, where there are kasbahs built in caves and that will also take us to Telouet. And we continue towards the red city of Marrakech. Dinner and accommodation according to selected hotel category. https://www.riadirhalne.com/ or similar
