3 days Desert tour from Ouarzazate | SuperTours-Maroc

Day 1: Ouarzazate – Skoura – Roses Valley – Dades Gorges – Todra Gorges

Kasbash

After breakfast, you will be headed to Skoura-fertile oasis lined with immense palm groves. The Kasbah Amerhidil is one of the most famous landmarks of Skoura and is definitely worth seeing. The next destination is Kelaa M’gouna, a spot where the roses festival takes place every year in May. From here you will have the chance to see the nomads, their way of life, learn their habits and get to know their culture. You will be able to do all of this in the Atlas Mountains. However, just right when the off-road finishes and the asphalt begins you’ll see Ait Youl Kasbah and the green valley of Dades. You’ll reach Todra Gorges and the rest of the day is to appreciate the quietness of the mountains. Both the Todra and Dades Rivers have carved out cliff-sided canyons on their final 40 kilometers through the mountains. You will spend the night in an accommodation in a hotel in the middle of the gorges.

Day 2: Todra Gorges – Erfoud – Merzouga

Waking up in the middle of the gorges, more exactly the Todra Gorges. Today’s destination is Merzouga. However, in order to get there, you will pass through Erfoud  an oasis town in the Sahara Desert. Erfoud is a destination for filmmakers due to the beauty of the surrounding Sahara Desert and the town’s oasis areas. Moreover, because of the Merzouga desert village in the Erg Chebbi Dunes, Erfoud has become a famous tourist destination for people around the world. Erg Chebbi is one of Morocco’s two Saharan ergs, more exactly a large sea of dunes formed by the sand under influence of the wind. This area is pretty difficult to access and because of it you will do that on a camel. The camel ride starts from Erg Chebbi and it finishes in the heart of the desert, where you will spend the night.

Day 3: Merzouga – Rissani – Alnif – Achich Tazarine – Vallee de Draa – Ouarzazate

Rissani

Considering you will not have much time to rest, you will be woken up early in order to see the magnificent sunrise over the dunes. Another camel ride, this time taking you back to the hotel, where you will have the possibility to have a breakfast, take a shower and have some time for yourself. Afterwards, we are starting the day by taking you to the Tafilalte valley and the wild desert with plenty of Acacia trees (well-known landmarks on the veld and savanna). The next destination is the Draa Valley, formed by the confluence of the Dades River (the longest in Morocco) and Imini River. Besides all of the natural landmarks including the oases, agriculture and palm groves, this valley is enriched with many kasbahs. The trip ends with the crossing of the Anti-Atlas Mountains and going back to Ouarzazate.
