Itinerary Casablanca to Marrakech tour 7 days Morocco desert
Day 1 Arrival into Casablanca-Transfer to the hotel
Upon your arrival at Casablanca airport, our representative will welcome you and transfer you to your hotel in the city center. The rest of the day is free for you to settle in and relax after your flight and take a first look around. Additional nights prior to the start of the tour are available upon request.
Day 2 Casablanca- Rabat- Volubolis- Meknes- Fez
We start our tour early today with a visit (from the outside) to the impressive Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca. The mosque, the 7th largest in the world and with the highest minaret has an amazing location right on the edge of the sea. We then head to Morocco’s nearby capital, Rabat. Also strategically located on the Atlantic coastline, Rabat began as a settlement in the third century BC and we’ll enjoy a tour of the old city including visits to the Royal Palace, Ouedaya Garden & Kasbah and the Hassan Tower Mosque. Next is the ancient Roman city of Volubilis.
Recently listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and dating back as far as AD40, Volubilis is home to some of the most impressive Roman ruins in North Africa. Finally, we visit the Berber town of Meknes. Formerly the capital of Morocco during the reign of Moulay Ismail, he transformed the town, constructing intricate gateways, beautiful gardens and at 40m the largest ramparts in the country. Our day ends with the short drive to Fez where we spend the night in Riad.
Day 3 A full day exploring Fes
We will have a full day today to take in the artisan capital of Morocco with a local guide. After breakfast, we begin sightseeing in Fes el Jadid, known as ‘new Fes’ despite dating back to the 13th century. The area’s predominant feature is the Royal Palace, and although it’s not open to visitors, we’ll visit from the outside to see the intricately designed gates. We’ll later drive out to North Borj viewpoint for some great views back across the city before taking a well deserved lunch break.
After lunch, our exploration of the city takes us into Fes el Bali (Old Medina). Within the bustling souks of the Fes el Bali, the craftwork is considered to be the finest in Morocco. We’ll wander through its artisan districts, where small doorways and narrow pathways reveal weavers and brass workshops, coppersmiths, and tanners, all producing beautiful pieces as they have for many generations. We’ll also take in the opulent majesty of the 14th century Attarin Medersa, whose Moroccan decoration and elegant design makes it one of the city’s most captivating medieval colleges.
Day 4: Fes – Ifrane - Erfoud–Camel Trek in the Sahara & overnight camel ride - Berber Camp
We start to discover some of Morocco’s beautiful mountainous landscape today as we leave Fez and follow ancient caravan routes up into the hills. Along the way we’ll stop at Ifran, known as the ”Switzerland of Morocco” and a huge contrast to some of the other more Arabic feeling cities you’ll see in Morocco. The French built Ifran in the 1930s, with the intention of recreating an alpine style resort, and you’ll see beautiful parks with lakes, flower beds, and red-roofed houses throughout what was named the second cleanest city in the world in 2013.
Next, we head on through the hills and through the scenic Ziz Valley this morning as we descend to Erfoud on the edge of the Sahara Desert. We’ll then drive in 4*4 vehicles through the desert to Merzouga and the famous Erg Chebbi sand dunes. Here we transfer to camels and take a sunset camel ride through the sand dunes to a traditional Berber camp nestled right on the edge of the dunes. You can enjoy some spectacular views over the sand dunes as the sun sinks below the horizon before enjoying a hearty Bedouin meal and a campfire this evening, often with local musicians helping enhance the atmosphere. You spend the night sleeping in comfortable Berber Merzouga luxury camp.
Day 5 Merzouga-Erfoud-Berber Vilages-Todra Gorges-Dades Valley
This morning we’ll wake before dawn to make our way up to the tip of a sand dune for our chance to watch the sunrise over the Sahara. Returning to camp for a well-deserved breakfast, we will leave the southern desert by camel; a true Moroccan experience.
Our driver will be waiting for us in Merzouga or Park of the camels ready to head for the mountains once more. Following an ancient route along the southern slopes of the Atlas, we reach the town of Tinerhir, our base from which to explore the towering vistas of the Todra Gorge. Arriving in the afternoon there is usually time for an initial exploration of the area and perhaps a walk in the famous lush palmeries that line the banks of the nearby Todra River. Extending some way along the river’s course, the gardens are a lush oasis of produce, with date palms and olive groves, fruit orchards, and almonds, all littered amongst a fertile landscape of grain and vegetables.
After a lunch break at a charming restaurant at the foot of the canyons, we’ll trip to the DADES River Valley, where groves and villages surround arid hills and desert rock formations. Our tour continues along the legendary 1000 kasbah road. Tracing the ancient caravan route, this cruise punctuates stunning canyons and valleys, fortified old towns and hilltop castles, and even some 19th century apartment complexes built with distinctive medieval kasbah walls. Tonight we will enjoy an à la carte dinner and a restful overnight at Riad.
Day 6 Dades Valley–Rose Valley–Skoura–Ait-Ben Haddou–Marrakech
The route through Dades Valley is also known as the Road of One Thousand Kasbahs. You’ll catch a spectacular view of a vast valley dotted with small oases and hundreds of ancient fortifications. The sand-colored walls of the kasbahs may all start to look the same but each holds a special historical treasure within and offer innumerable opportunities for remarkable photos. We will meet Berber Nomads in their caves and the fertile Rose valley, perhaps stopping briefly at Kalaat M’gouna, ‘the rose city’, to purchase rosewater before arriving in Skoura.
A quiet little village speckled with palm tree groves, Skoura is surrounded by acres of palm groves (les palmaraie), which are a paradise of palm and olive trees dotted with kasbahs and small villages. This is where we find Kasbah Amridil: a kasbah that stands out from the rest. Originally built in the 17th century, it is one of Morocco’s most iconic living museums that has withstood the test of time, making it the ideal setting for an insight into the ancient traditions of kasbah life. If you wish, and time allows, you can also take a short hike to a spot overlooking the valley and the old salt mines. Finally we’ll explore the Skoura Oasis and stroll for an hour in the gardens of the north side of the town past almond and olive trees.
After drive to Ouarzazate where, for centuries, people from the Atlas, Draa, and Dades Valleys have converged to do business at Ouarzazate’s sprawling Taourirt Kasbah. A massive citadel, it sits against the backdrop of the Atlas Mountains and contains almost 300 rooms within its walls. We follow the maze of corridors to a prayer room on the top floor, which provides stunning views over Lake El Mansour Edhabbi, or we can explore the village within the kasbah for great deals on local crafts. We’ll also visit Taourir and Ti-foultout Kasbahs, which are among the most beautiful Kasbahs in Morocco.
After the French protectorate left in the 1950s, the movie business flourished in Ouarzazate. We will visit the Atlas film studios where many famous movies have been filmed, including Lawrence of Arabi, The Living Daylights, The Last Temptation of Christ, The Man who would be King, The Mummy, Gladiator, Asterix & Obelisk, Kingdom of Heaven, Kundun, Legionnaire, Hanna, and Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, as well as part of the TV series Game of Thrones.
Today’s main highlight though is a tour of Morocco’s most well known Kasbah at the UNESCO world heritage site of Ait Benhaddou. This is a huge fortified city (ksar – a group of earthen buildings surrounded by high walls), with houses and kasbahs crowding together inside the defensive walls, an excellent example of traditional Moroccan earthen clay architecture. You can spend several hours in its maze of winding streets until reaching a fortified granary at the top which provides an amazing view of the valley.
Finally, we head up into and across the Atlas Mountains for a beautifully scenic drive to Marrakech, en route crossing the Tizi N’tichka call which at 2260m is the highest pass in Northern Africa.
Day 7: Marrakech sightseeing guided by an official local guide
Today, we begin unearthing the secrets of Marrakech, starting in the medina, the old walled section of town and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We’ll marvel at the city’s architectural jewels, including the soaring Koutoubia minaret and Dar Si Said; housed in a palace, it is among the most beautiful of its kind in the world. We’ll then continue to the Bahia Palace, an exemplary specimen of privileged life in the 19th century. Then we visit Djemaa el-Fna, Marrakech’s main square, which is filled with orange juice stalls and vendors, and is well worth returning to in the evenings when it is packed with street food stalls, fire-eaters, mime artists, snake charmers and street musicians performing at every turn.
The afternoon is then free to explore the Medina’s fabled, labyrinthine souks and do some souvenir shopping. In the middle of the old market [Rahba Lakdima] you’ll find queues of stalls filled with jars upon jars of spices, petals, bark and leaves inside. You’ll see cumin, saffron, harissa and paprika, but what many people come for is what can only be found in Morocco—the spice blend called Ras el Hanut, which translates as “head of the shop.” This blend usually includes paprika. cardamom, clove, cinnamon, coriander, nutmeg, peppercorn and turmeric and more, with recipes often a guarded secret. You can return to the hotel for dinner or a rest, but it’s well worth returning to the main square in the evening.
Day 8 Marrakech- free time- Transfer to the airport for departure
Your day is free today to explore Marrakech further, and perhaps do some final souvenir shopping and sightseeing before we transfer you to Marrakech airport for your departure flight. Subject to your flight time, we can also offer a range of day trips and excursions, including a spectacular hot air balloon flight.
