Morocco tour in 7 days From Marrakech: desert and beach
Can you imagine 7 days Morocco tour that combines, at the same time, Marrakech, the beach, and the desert? That is precisely what we offer in this great route, which condenses the great successes of other trips starting and ending in Marrakech. If you have a free week and want to discover the best of Morocco in that time, nothing better than choosing this complete travel proposal.
Beach and desert in perfect contrast
The three main attractions of this 7-day Morocco tour are Marrakech, the beach, and the desert. In the case of the city, popularly known as the Red City, it will not only serve as a starting and ending point for the route but will also be the protagonist of a full-day visit. Its architectural jewels (Koutoubia Mosque, Bahia Palace, Saadian Tombs, etc.), its popular atmosphere in the souks and Jemaa el-Fna Square, and its rich calendar of events make this great city, the epicenter of Moroccan tourism, very attractive.
Marrakech and the beach are not far from each other: the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean is less than 200 km away. And luckily for travelers, the coastal city that is a stone’s throw away is Essaouira, one of the most beautiful in the country. Its medina and its maritime fortress coexist with beaches of great charm to configure a tourist offer of great interest.
However, on this 7-day Morocco tour, you will experience not only the Atlantic Ocean’s embrace but also the Sahara desert. The desert of Merzouga and the dunes of Erg Chebbi, in particular, form a totally different,’ with ridges of fine golden sand that disappear into the horizon. In a nutshell, Marrakech, the beach, and the desert are three extremely diverse destinations that are wonderfully complementary in a journey with these features.

Itinerary: 7 Days Morocco Tour From Marrakech
Seven days Morocco tour from Marrakech are enough for a lot. Therefore, here we detail this trip through Marrakech, the beach and the desert.
Day 1: Marrakech - High Atlas - Ait Ben Haddou - Ouarzazate - Dades Valley
Our journey begins with vigor on the first day: our driver/guide will collect you up from the Marrakech airport or another agreed-upon location (such as your hotel) and bring you to the Moroccan desert. To do so, we’ll have to go via the High Atlas Mountains, a massive mountain range that serves as a dramatic backdrop to any panoramic view of the city. From autumn to spring, we’ll cross it over the picturesque Tizi n’Tichka pass, which runs through Berber towns and snow-capped hills at roughly 2,200 meters above sea level.
A huge desert landscape with beautiful’spots’ of color opens up on the opposite side of this mountain range: these are the lush valleys through which the famous Route of the Thousand Kasbahs (Valley of the Roses and Dades Valley) flows. As we’ll see, there are a lot of Berber adobe strongholds here. We’ll stop at one of them to take a closer look: Ait Ben Haddou, a Unesco World Heritage Site and filming location for blockbusters like Game of Thrones.
Our road trip will continue during the afternoon until we reach a village in the heart of the Dades Valley. There, a picturesque riad awaits us, where we will also enjoy dinner.
Summary of the first day
Day 2: Dades Valley - Todra Gorges - Erfoud - Merzouga Desert
On the second day of our journey, we’ll kickstart the day with a delightful breakfast at our riad, ensuring we’re fueled for the adventures ahead. Our destination is the awe-inspiring Todra Gorges, a natural wonder characterized by soaring rocky walls that reach over 200 meters in height in some places. We’ll explore these dramatic gorges both by road and on foot, capturing unforgettable images to treasure forever.
Continuing our road trip, we’ll pass through Erfoud en route to Merzouga, the gateway to the Sahara Desert’s enchanting Erg Chebbi dunes. Here, we’ll experience the timeless tradition of camel riding, following in the footsteps of Berber nomads. Our camel trek will lead us to a tented camp where we’ll savor a delicious dinner against the backdrop of a breathtaking desert sunset. As night falls, the desert sky will treat us to a dazzling display of stars, providing the most enchanting “good night” one can imagine.
Summary of the second day
Day 3: Merzouga desert - Rissani - Nkob - Ouarzazate
We had to get up early on the third day of this tour. But it will be worthwhile: the charm that is common in this section of the desert will dawn before our eyes. Following that, we will return to Merzouga village on camelback. There will be time for a relaxing shower as well (at the camp or in a hotel, depending on the package contracted).
Marrakech and the seaside are both roughly 560 km and 700 km away from here. However, there are so many interesting spots along the road that we’ll be spending the next four days exploring them. To accomplish so, we’ll go west to explore a new portion of the Thousand Kasbahs Route. The first stop on this day will be Rissani, which has an ancient and beautiful medina, which is undoubtedly the most intriguing in southern Morocco.
Back on the road, we’ll see vast palm groves between steep hills, small towns with farms, and adobe fortifications that teach us about past caravan routes: Alnif, Tazarine, Nkob… and many more. We will eat dinner and spend the night in Ouarzazate, the biggest city in the area, once we arrive in the Draa Valley.
Summary of the third day
Day 4: Ouarzazate - High Atlas - Essaouira
On the fourth day of our journey, we’ll start the day on a delightful note with breakfast served at our riad. Our first stop will be the remarkable Taourirt Kasbah, located within the same city. This kasbah is renowned for its impressive state of preservation, standing as a testament to Morocco’s rich historical and architectural heritage.
After exploring the Kasbah, we’ll embark on our journey back across the High Atlas Mountains, a route familiar to us from our previous days of exploration in the region. However, on this occasion, we won’t pause in Marrakech as we usually do. Instead, we have a new adventure in store—the beach beckons! We’ll continue our drive directly to Essaouira, with our anticipated arrival scheduled for late afternoon.
In Essaouira, a charming riad will welcome us, providing a cozy and authentic Moroccan dwelling for our stay in this enchanting coastal city, where we can look forward to experiencing the unique blend of history, culture, and coastal beauty that defines Essaouira.
Summary of the fourth day
Day 5: Essaouira - Marrakech
After a rejuvenating rest in the riad and a hearty breakfast to fuel our day, we’ll step out to explore the captivating city of Essaouira. This historic gem seamlessly combines the vibrant Moroccan atmosphere with remnants of Portuguese architecture. The traditional medina, bustling with life and local culture, and the bustling fishing harbor, dotted with colorful boats, exemplify Essaouira’s Moroccan charm. Meanwhile, the waterfront fortress stands as a testament to the city’s earlier days as Mogador, a Portuguese colony. You can choose to explore this charming city at your own pace or opt for a guided tour (inquire for more information) to gain deeper insights into its history and significance. Notably, Essaouira was chosen as a filming location for scenes in the third season of Game of Thrones, a testament to its picturesque allure, much like Ait Ben Haddou.
Until our scheduled meeting time around 16:00, you’ll have ample opportunity to soak in the city’s sights, savor local gastronomy, take a refreshing dip in the sea, or even partake in exciting water activities. Following our Essaouira exploration, we’ll hit the road once more, this time bound for Marrakech to conclude our memorable journey. The rest and relaxation that await you at the riad in Marrakech upon arrival will provide a well-deserved chance to recharge your batteries, ensuring you’re ready for the adventures that await on the next leg of our journey.
Summary of the fifth day
Day 6: Marrakech
Your day in Marrakech will begin with a satisfying breakfast served at the riad, setting the tone for a day filled with exploration and cultural immersion. Unlike the previous day, today’s schedule includes a guided tour of the city during the morning. An official guide will lead you through the most captivating and historically significant sites, offering insights into Marrakech’s rich heritage. Expect to visit prominent places such as the Bahia Palace, where opulence and Moroccan craftsmanship merge seamlessly, the Saadian Tombs, a hidden treasure from Morocco’s past, the environs of the iconic Koutoubia Mosque, and, of course, the vibrant and bustling Jemaa el-Fna square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you’ll witness the lively pulse of the city.
In the afternoon, you’ll have the freedom to tailor your experience to your preferences. This is the perfect time to indulge in some retail therapy, exploring the colorful and bustling souks for unique souvenirs or artisanal goods. Alternatively, you can opt for additional cultural visits, such as a tranquil stroll through the captivating Majorelle Gardens or a visit to the Marrakech Museum, which offers further insights into the city’s history and artistic heritage. Marrakech offers a myriad of options to suit every traveler’s interests. Once again, your accommodation for the night will be in the charming riad nestled in the heart of the city center, ensuring a comfortable and picturesque end to your day in Marrakech.
Summary of the sixth day
Day 7: Marrakech - Airport
On your final day, your journey will commence with a satisfying breakfast at the riad, allowing you to savor your last moments in this enchanting city. After breakfast, you’ll complete the check-out process, but you’ll still have the morning to make the most of your time in Marrakech, provided your flight schedule permits. This is an excellent opportunity for any last-minute shopping or any final sightseeing you wish to squeeze in.
As the agreed-upon departure time approaches, our dedicated driver will be at your service, ready to transfer you to the airport. It’s at this moment that our services in this comprehensive tour will come to an end. After a heartfelt farewell, you’ll carry with you the cherished memories of Marrakech, the beautiful coastal town, the mesmerizing Moroccan desert, and the cultural experiences that have, we hope, found a special place in your hearts.
