DAY TO DAY ITINERARY

Day 1: Arrival at Tangier Port

Arrival at Boukhalef Airport in Tangier or one of its ports, Your guide will be waiting for you to greet you, then transfer to the hotel in Chefchaouen. Today we will take you to the picturesque city of Asilah. Larach to explore the marvels of white towns of Morocco, traditional fishing ports, Rif Mountains, evergreen red cedar forests, and Berber villages unique to this undiscovered region. Endly, you will find yourself in the Marvelous Chefchaouen Mountain town and its vibrant aura of beauty and charm.

Day 2: Chefchaouen - Volubilis - Fez

Your driver will take you on a day trip to visit historic sites and fascinating towns on the road to Fez. Visit the highlights of Meknes via Volubilis and Moulay Idris. This excursion embodies much of Morocco's early history: Volubilis as its Roman provincial capital and Moulay Idris creating its first Arab dynasty. Continue to Fez, dinner, and accommodation.

Day 3: Fez Historic Visit

The most ancient imperial capital and the complete medieval city of the Islamic world, Fez is undeniably unique. Culturally and spiritually stimulating with its haunting and beautiful sounds, infinite visual details, and unfiltered odors, Fez seems to exist suspended in time somewhere between the Middle Ages and modern times. Besides its electricity, it owes absolutely nothing to the West. As a spectacle, this is an entirely satisfying experience and a learning process about the sophistication of the Moroccan artisan. We visited some important sites, such as the Bouinania Medersa, the Moulay Idris Mausoleum, the Karaouiyine Mosque, the Attarine Medersa, and the Nejjarine Museum in the morning. Lunch in a typical Moroccan restaurant, and continue exploring the Medina in the afternoon. Dinner and accommodations are at Hotel Des Merinides.

Day 4: Day Excursion to Sefrou and B'Halil

We will start the day with an excursion to the ancient city of Sefrou. The city that thrived in the Phoenician and Roman times was an outpost that linked Africa to Europe for trade Caravans used to meet there to exchange goods and Vehicles from camel to mule. An old trade outpost of sub-Saharan, it is also a three thousand years old spiritual center with many Judaic roots. Shrines and notable places around the city are pilgrimage sites to Moroccan Jews today. After hiking a little Middle Atlas to explore these landscapes, we will go to Bhallil to visit the troglodyte dwellings that have existed since Neolithic times and still serve the purpose. Return to Fez for dinner and accommodation.

Day 5: Overland trip to Merzouga Dunes

The first hills of the Middle Atlas seem oddly un-Moroccan. Evergreen pines, tall cedar trees on the peaks, and poplars stand copiously on the foothills, laced with flowing streams. The road across is almost ceremonial. Azrou, the first real town of the Middle Atlas, stands at a major junction of routes; it's an important market center and has long held a strategic role in controlling the Berbers of the mountains. The Middle Atlas ceases at Midelt, where suddenly, through the haze, appear the much greater peaks of the High Atlas formidably rising behind the town to reach a massive range, the Djebel Ayashi at over 12,000 ft. The drama of this sight, tremendous in the clear, cool noon, is the most compelling reason to stop over for lunch. Erfoud is one of the most pleasing southern routes: a dry, red belt of the desert, and then suddenly, a drop into the valley filled with date palm groves. Dinner accommodations are at camp with the Tuaregs over the dunes of Merzouga. You can ride your camel to camp or hop in our Land Rover to cruise these gigantesque dunes.

Day 6: Merzouga Dunes Excursion to Khamliya and Rissani

An experience not to be missed is to watch the sun rises from the spectacular Merzouga dunes of the Sahara, so beautiful that no word can describe it.

Day 7: Travel from Erfoud to Todra Gorges

The highest the narrowest gorges in the region are in Todra Valley, only 15 km from Tineghir. Traveling through the Dades valley in spring, you will find the bloom of thousands of Persian roses filling up the air with an ethereal aroma certainly from heaven - cultivated as hedgerows dividing the different plots. Thousands of Kasbahs scattered surreally as sandcastles standing erect in the shadow of time along the Dades River. Dinner and accommodation at Hotel Bougafer in Tineghir.

Day 8: Travel from Todra to the Draa Valley and Zagora

Travel in the morning to Zagora, exploring the marvels of the Anti Atlas mountains and the beauty of the Draa valley oases and Kasbahs; stop in Agdez and other sun-baked mud hamlets of small villages among this giant belt of continuous oases in the world. Dinner and lodging at Tinsouline Hotel.

Day 9: Explore the Sahara Oases of Tamegroute and M'Hamid Dunes

Enjoy an exciting full day's excursion to the natural gateway of the Moroccan Saharan Desert. We will drive through the lowlands and then along the mountain passes to Tamegroute.

Day 10: Travel to Tata Palm Grove vis Foum Zguid Oasis

Day 11: Overland trip from Tata to Guelmime

Day 12: Travel from Guelmime to Tiznite

Travel in the morning from the best oasis of Goulimine to the Jewel of southwestern Morocco, the magnificent Tiznit. Named after a woman who has marked the Moroccan myths, the Seductive, Tiznit still lives up to the reputation of its founder. Lunch on the road in some of the best eateries this well-cultured region of Souss has to offer in its varied staples of Berber tagines cooked in earthen pots in the same way ancient ancestors did.

Day 16: Hiking the Best Pass in the High Atlas Mountains

Depart to Imlil via Asni and Tizi n'Test pass at an elevation of 11,000 ft. in an impressive site dividing these mountains into two distinct aspects. One side acts as a shield to protect the hinterland from the Sahara's harsh and dry expansion; the other side collects the moisture of the Gherbi winds from the Atlantic Ocean, soft and evergreen. Such is the life of the Berber dwellers, a day of mountain hikes through the high peaks and deep valleys. This is an experience to treasure for a lifetime. Overnight and dinner will be at a guesthouse.

Morning will be devoted to trekking in the Toubkal plateau. After lunch, we will proceed to Marrakech to visit cliff-hanging villages and wards like Asni and Tahanout. Arrival in Marrakech, the "Morocco City" as the early travelers called it, has always been a pleasant city, a marketplace where the southern tribesmen and Berber villagers bring in their goods, spend their money, and find entertainment. For tourists, it's an enduring fantasy - a city of immense beauty, low, pink, and tent-like before a great shaft of mountains, and immediately exciting. Visit the famous Jemaa El Fna square.

Travel to Essaouira (Mogador), apart from the immediate impact of sea air and the friendly animation of the town, the predominant images of Essaouira are of the Atlantic - of the rugged coast and offshore islands, the vast expanse of empty sands trailing back along the peninsula to the south, and the almost Gothic scenery of the eighteen-century fortifications. Lunch will be at Chalet de la Mer restaurant overlooking the ocean. Dinner and accommodations are at Hotel Des Iles.
