Overview

4 days tour from Marrakech to Merzouga provides breathtaking natural beauty and contact with the fascinating cultures of the Moroccan people.

From its epic Atlas Mountains, the vast Sahara Desert, oases, and native Berber tribe cultures, this tour has everything you need to know about Morocco. The journey includes scenic road trips, camel rides in the Sahara, hiking valleys, roaming the passageways in classic Kasbahs, eating fresh nuts and dates.

You will enjoy the sight of giant sand dunes, desert sunrise and sunsets, and small and large oases among other thrilling attractions.

If you’re into a dopamine rush that is induced by a constant state of experiencing novelty, then this 4-day trip is definitely your thing. Adventurers and free souls live for this kind of experience.

What most people love about Morocco is how friendly is everyone is. Morocco is the safest country in North Africa; it’s certainly the safest country in the whole of Africa, which makes it rank among the safest places in the world. Morocco actually ranked the 24th safest country in the world in 2021, according to Global Finance. All of that makes our 4-day Desert Trip one of the safest tourist experiences in the world.

Of course, you can get a little bit adventurous if you want. Not the whole of Morocco is a safe place. In fact, the heights of Toudra Gorges are totally not safe, but you can climb them if you want. Surely there will be ropes and stuff that will protect you from falling, but still, your adrenaline will be pumping like fuel and your heart will start racing.

All in all, this is one of the best Desert Trips you can take. You’ll enjoy the various aspects of what makes the Desert an interesting spot for everyone. You’ll discover the long-sought for Desert Mysticism that has enchanted people for millennia.

The desert certainly has a sort of mysticism that cannot be fully captured with words. It’s like parachuting, no matter how many videos you see, or people telling you about it, the actual experience is something else. It’s the famous philosophical idea of the map not being the territory.

    This morning, after breakfast, we will pick you up from the hotel in Marrakesh and set off in a comfortable private air-conditioned vehicle for your 4 Days tour from Marrakech to Merzouga Desert.

    The journey will take you through major tourist destinations Ait Benhaddou and Ouarzazate. The scenic road trip takes you to the breathtaking view of picturesque High Atlas Mountains as you head to Ait Benhaddou.

    There are various stops along the way to take pictures of the High Atlas Mountains and the spectacular landscape along the Tizi n’Tichka pass 7414 ft (2260m). At Ait-Benhaddou, we will visit the beautiful ancient Kasbahs. Estimated to be over 1200 years old, these fortified, red-earthen villages provide a glimpse of what ancient Morocco looked like. The ancient vibe of this city got it featured in the popular Game of Thrones series.

    You will have lunch at this place and enjoy the local cuisine and centuries-old recipes. In the afternoon we will take a scenic desert road trip to Ouarzazate city, where we will stop near the Atlas Studios for a photo session before proceeding downtown for a panoramic view of the Kasbah of Taourirt.

    The exotic backdrop of the Ouarzazate is what makes it a favorite for many movies and TV shows. The road trip will also take you past small, lush oasis towns. From here we will be on our way to Dades Valley where we will be spending the night.

    At Todra Gorges, you will be wowed by massive canyons, which are a 400-meter-deep fault splitting the orange limestone into a deep ravine. In addition to driving through the gorge for a fantastic sight, you will also enjoy hiking the Todra River Gorge on foot. Take as many pictures as you like against the backdrop of the Todra Gorge. It will definitely be a lifetime experience.

    After enjoying the Todra Gorge, we will take another road drive and arrive in the oasis town of Erfoud by lunchtime. There is a variety of local food for you to choose from. You will also enjoy some of the traditional cuisines of the local people. Erfoud is referred to as the fossil city of Morocco because of its rich fossil deposits.

    We will visit a local craft workshop to see how the fossil is extracted from bedrock. After that we will continue to the Sahara Desert and enjoy the beautiful desert view as we approach Merzouga, where you will take one of the best desert camel rides in Morocco. You can climb the sand dunes, enjoy a beautiful sunset over the dunes, and experience the unique silence of the vast Sahara Desert. Some of these giant dunes are over 600 feet (200 meters) high. You will then spend the night at a traditional Berber nomad camp and enjoy a traditional Berber meal.

    You will also get a taste of their traditional music with dancing around the campfire before going to sleep. It will definitely be fun! Here the second of your 4 days tour from Marrakech to Merzouga Desert ends.

A camel ride will take us back to Merzouga where our driver will be waiting to take us on a more immersing trip into the desert. We will freshen up and take off towards Hassilabied and Khamlia villages.

    On the way we will come across nomads living in the desert and listen to live Gnawa music by the local tribes. We will drive deeper into the desert to Lake Dayte Sarje, an oasis at the dunes, and a visit to see black volcanic rocks. This will be an unforgettable experience in the desert.

    The rest of the afternoon we will be spending at Rissani which is an important commercial town. We will have traditional lunch with a Moroccan family here and after lunch we will visit the town-s famous souks. In the evening, we will drive back to Merzouga to spend the night at a riad.

    Morocco, a fascinating and friendly country

    It was our first visit to Morocco. Mimoun organized a tailor-made round trip for us from Marrakech to the High Atlas, the desert, the coast and back to Marrakech. He introduced us into the beauties and characteristics of his fascinating country. We appreciated his reliability, the pleasant and easygoing way of guiding and were impressed by the professionalism of his service. We can highly recommend this agency.

    Excellent time in the desert

    Had an amazing time with Atlas Excursion. Specially with the staff at the camp itself. We arrived just after sunset and the camp was beautifully decorated. We were welcomed with Moroccan tea and pastries. Dinner was very good and after dinner they prepared a big fire and played songs around it. So much fun. Tents are cold in winter. However enough blankets were provided. There’s one bathroom in each tent. Feels like a hotel. Very cosy. Sunrise was beautiful and right after an abundant breakfast is served. I was sad to leave that morning!!! Special thanks go to Hassan. We had a great time with him!

    Great adventure in the Desert

    Our driver Yassine is an excellent driver and an English guide, who arranged everything so well for us. We had a great time during this unforgettable 4 days 3 nights trip. We had an upgraded tent experience, visited local people village, ate Berber's pizza, learned their life, listened to Berber's music, and get much more information from him. We also stayed one night at his friend's Riad at the rose valley that we couldn't have had this experience without him. We will cherish these happy memories for a long time. Thank you so much, Yassine! Highly recommend booking trips with this company!
