Day 2: Rabat – Meknes

Following breakfast at the riad, we will cross the river and make our way back to Rabat, where we will pay a visit to the Hassan Tower and the Mausoleum of Mohammed V. These structures were constructed as a memorial to the King of Morocco, who died away in 1961. Hassan II, his son and successor, who passed away in 1999, is also entombed at this location.

Continue on to the Andalusian-style gardens of the Kasbah Oudaya, and from there enter the Kasbah itself, which has blue and white stripes painted on the outside walls in the customary pattern. This kind of interior decoration is common in many of the coastal communities that dot the Atlantic coast from Maine to Florida.

The next stop on the excursion is in Meknes, where you will travel to one of the most well-known landmarks in all of Morocco, Bab Mansour, as well as the Moulay Ismail tomb and the granaries. A riad is where one stays for the night at this location.

Day 3: Meknes – Volubilis – Fes

Following breakfast at the riad, guests will travel to Volubilis to see the ancient Roman remains there, which are dispersed over a large region and provide stunning vistas of the surrounding valley and hills. You may get a glimpse of the holy city of Moulay Idriss from here, and then proceed to get there. It is forbidden for non-Moslems to enter the tomb, however the main area offers some beautiful vistas and charming tiny businesses to explore. Keep going to Fes where you will have supper and spend the night in a riad.

Day 4: The Fes

Spend the day taking in the attractions of Fes, the “Imperial City” of Morocco that is the oldest of the country’s four “Imperial Cities.” The medieval city of Fes El Bali, often known as “Old Fes,” has been preserved in its entirety and has not been damaged.

During your tour of this section of the city, you will have the opportunity to visit the fascinating Bou Inania Medersa, as well as the Medina and the Kairaouine Mosque. At the Kairaouine Mosque, you will have the opportunity to take photographs of the beautiful courtyard from the main gate, in addition to the well-known soukhs. You may spend the day exploring “New Fes,” also known as Fes El Jdid, as well as the Museum of Moroccan Arts. The riad is where one stays for the night.

Day 5: Fes – Midelt – Er Rachidia – Erfoud

Departure from Fes at 8:00 in the morning, traveling to Azrou, where you will have the opportunity to view Barbary apes in the Middle Atlas area. Lunch will be provided in Midelt, often known as “the apple capital,” which is located at the base of the Ayachi Mountain. We continue our journey by crossing the Tizi-n-Talremt mountain and traveling through the Ziz Valley, which is well-known for the abundance of palm trees as well as the expansiveness of the oasis. Numerous “ksars,” or little towns composed of individual homes, can be seen all along the route used by the vehicle.

From here, we may visit Er Rachidia, which is known for its date festival, and then Erfoud, which is renowned for its fossils. The hotel is of the classic kind, and it is where one spends the night.

Day 6: Erfoud – Merzouga Erg Chebbi dunes

You will leave for Rissani immediately after breakfast in order to explore the soukhs that are located there. After arriving to the lake by four-wheel drive, you will pay a visit to some Berber nomads to listen to some music. An auberge in the vicinity of the Erg Chebbi dunes in Merzouga that has a swimming pool serves as the location for lunch. When you arrive at the bivouac, you ride a camel to the top of the dunes so that you may view the sunset from there. When everyone has returned to the bivouac, food will be given, and then there will be an evening of music followed by a night spent in a nomad tent.

Day 7: Travel from Merzouga to Tinghir/Toudgha and then on to the Dades Gorges

If you are able to get up early enough, you will be able to see the incredible show that is the dawn, during which the hues of the dunes and the interplay of shadows create a breathtaking scene. You may go for a stroll in the dunes after breakfast, and then go to Tinghir and the Toudgha gorges for lunch before returning home. Tinjdad and the Toudgha Valley are both included in the route taken by the road.

Walking routes abound in this area, including those that go along to the river and through the gardens, as well as others that head up the road on the opposite side of the gorges. Following lunch, the journey will go to the Dades Valley and the Dades Gorges, where they will spend the night in a hotel.

Day 8: Dades Gorges – Ouarzazate

It is planned that after breakfast there will be a hike through the Dades Gorges. After returning to the vehicle, the journey to Ouarzazate continues with an off-road excursion through the Boutarar piste, during which travelers stop to meet Berber nomads in their caves and have a cup of tea with them. From here, we continue our journey via the kasbahs of Skoura and into the Valley of the Roses, which is well-known for hosting a Rose Festival every May. You will be staying in a riad while in Ouarzazate.

Day 9: Ouarzazate – Ait Ben Haddou – Telouet – Marrakesh

After breakfast, travelers will continue on to Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou, a UNESCO World Heritage site that has served as the setting for a number of successful Hollywood films. It is often considered to be the most renowned Kasbah in all of Morocco. The newly asphalted road leads forward from there to Telouet, which is the next stop in the route. This kasbah is located right in the middle of the mountains and was formerly the residence of the last Pasha of Marrakesh, El Glaoui. From here, control over Tizi-n-Tichka, the highest pass in Africa, was exercised. We get into Marrakesh around the latter hours of the day.
