The best way to travel south and then west in Morocco is to enjoy a 3 day desert tour from Fes to Marrakech.
Fes is the undisputed cultural capital of Morocco. Ancient and yet modern, home to dynasties, sultans and kings, Fes is the heart of artisanal goods and Moroccan handicrafts. Housing the world’s older university and one of the most intricate and fascinating medina’s in the world (walled city), Fes is on every tour of Morocco.
Stop for a visit at Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah and Ouarzazate before settling for the night in a full service hotel in the Dades Valley.
First you will pass through Ifrane, the Switzerland of Morocco, stopping for a quick look around. Then its on through the cedar forests of the Middle Atlas Mountains and through the pastures tended by nomads. Stop in to Midelt around mid day for a delicious lunch of lake trout and then you will drive through the amazing Ziz Valley as you travel closer and closer to the desert.
The best way to get from Marrakech to Fes, or from Fes to Marrakech, has to be by camel! Through the Sahara Desert. Well, maybe not the entire trip as they did in centuries past. We will take you by road much of the way.
