Sahara Desert tours from Fes to Fes 2 Days 1 Night
DAY 1: FEZ-IFRANE-AZROU-MIDELT-MERZOUGA
We meet at your Riad or Hotel by your private driver and embark on a journey to one of the most magical places in all of Morocco, the Erg Chebbi Dunes!
This is a seven hour excursion, transversing the Middle Atlas Mountains and some of the most engaging scenery in Morocco.
We travel through the vast cedar forest near Ifrane, The Switzerland of Morocco. We continue on through Azrou, Midelt and the Ziz Gorges. And then, the Erg Chebbi appears in the distance…
We reach Merzouga, where the camels are waiting for us! our journey into the dunes and establish our well-equipped camp.
We trek to the high dunes for what many claim to be one of the most incredible natural occurrences on the planet, the Erg Chebbi sunset…
Berber drumming and a star-filled sky make for a perfect ending to an extraordinary day.
We spend the night comfortably in our nomad tents, reviewing the events of the day before sleeping soundly surrounded by whispering sands.
DAY 2: MERZOUGA-MIDELT-IFRANE-FEZ
We will get up early for the beckoning Erg Chebbi sunrise! After taking in all that this magnificent sea of sand has to offer, we camel-trek back to Merzouga.
We enjoy breakfast and freshen up before beginning our journey back to Fez. We again travel the Ziz Valley and the Middle Atlas.
We stop near Ifrane on the return, to take in the cedar forest and observe/feed the Barbary Monkey.
We descend the Middle Atlas, taking in a spectacular view of Fez from the market town of Immouzier-Kandar.
We arrive in Fez, the imperial city, in the early evening.
