Morocco desert tour in 3 days from Fes ending in Marrakech

This 3-day tour from Fes to Marrakech is a perfect option to move from one Imperial City to another and, at the same time, travel to the Sahara desert to discover one of its most fascinating areas: the Erg Chebbi dunes. Therefore, if you do not have much time during your stay in Morocco but you do not want to miss the opportunity to know the far south of Morocco, this proposal is one of the most convenient.

The greatest of the Sahara Desert

In this 3-day tour from Fes to Marrakech, you will not visit just any corner of the Sahara desert: you will reach the desert of Merzouga, one of its most beautiful areas. Specifically, the dunes of Erg Chebbi, represent an infinite sea of fine golden sand where you can breathe a unique peace. In addition, we will cross these dunes in the traditional way, if you wish: on the back of camels to enjoy the environment even more. And no less attractive is the contemplation of the sunrise, sunset, and night in this place, because the clean sky allows contemplating lights of pure tones and thousands of stars of intense brightness.

Even the drive to the desert is fascinating

But the dunes of Erg Chebbi are not the only attraction of this trip, far from it. The road that will take us from Fes to Merzouga and from Merzouga to Marrakech has in turn many other attractions, both natural and monumental. Some of them are the High Atlas and Middle Atlas Mountains, the cedar forests, the palm groves in the Dades Valley, the rocky canyons in the Todra Gorges, or the Berber fortresses on the Route of the Thousand Kasbahs. And all this is in the hands of the best professionals to enjoy the experience in a pleasant and safe environment.

Highlights

Travel program

Join our 3-day from Fes to Marrakech desert vacation to visit both cities while traveling through Merzouga (Erg Chebbi). You have the chance to see the Atlas Mountains, views of Berber communities, valleys, and riding camels for an overnight stay in a Sahara desert camp during this 3-day excursion.

Day 1: From Fes to Merzouga desert Via Ifrane and Middle Atlas

This 3-day from Fes to Marrakech tour starts at your chosen location, whether it’s your Fes hotel or the airport for those arriving in Morocco. You’ll be picked up by our English-speaking driver in a comfortable private vehicle. Day one takes you south into the Middle Atlas Mountains, where you’ll explore Ifrane, known as ‘the Moroccan Switzerland’ due to its high-altitude location and unique gabled architecture. Next, you’ll visit the Ifrane National Park, home to the Barbary macaque, a rare primate species adapted to cold climates.

Crossing the Middle Atlas Mountains, you’ll descend into the Ziz Valley, where the desert’s arid landscape emerges. Passing through Erfoud, famous for its fossils, you’ll reach Merzouga, the gateway to the Sahara Desert. From Merzouga, you’ll go on a remarkable journey into the Erg Chebbi dunes, either on dromedaries or in 4×4 vehicles. After a few hours, you’ll arrive at a desert camp, welcomed with traditional Berber tea. At night, you’ll see an awe-inspiring starry sky, unobstructed by clouds or light pollution. Dinner will be served at the camp, and you’ll sleep in classic nomadic-style tents, providing a truly immersive desert experience.

Day 2: From Merzouga Desert to Dades Valley via Todra Gorges

This day brings another opportunity to see the Sahara’s stunning beauty: the sunrise. Waking up early to see it is a worthwhile experience. Following this magical moment, you’ll enjoy breakfast at the desert camp. Afterward, you’ll either ride camels or a jeep back to Merzouga to continue your journey. Returning to the asphalt road, the second day of this 3-day tour from Fes to Marrakech offers numerous attractions. First up is the unique town of Rissani. Not only does it boast a beautiful medina, but it’s also known for its lively local market and donkey parking areas that surround it.

Leaving Rissani behind, you drive toward the Dades Valley. Here, you’ll traverse small villages, hamadas, arid plateaus, and occasional palm groves that provide refreshing patches of greenery. The modest watercourses in this region lead to the next natural wonder: the Todra Gorges. These awe-inspiring rocky canyons, famous for their towering vertical walls, some reaching heights of up to 200 meters, are a favorite among climbers.

After marveling at this extraordinary landscape, you’ll journey through the Dades Valley and into the Valley of the Roses. Here, the cultivation and harvesting of roses are central to the way of life for many locals. Along this route, you’ll also encounter Berber fortresses, as you are on the famed Road of the Thousand Kasbahs. In one of the charming villages in the area, you’ll pause to have dinner and spend the night in a delightful riad, marking the end of another eventful day on your journey.

Day 3: From Dades Valley to Marrakech Via Ouarzazate and Ait Ben Haddou

The last day of this 3-day journey from Fes to Marrakech begins with breakfast at the riad. We’ll then set off and visit two remarkable Berber landmarks. First, the Taourirt Kasbah in Ouarzazate, once the Sultan of the Atlas’s residence, revealing richly decorated rooms. Second, the Ksar of Ait Ben Haddou, a large fortified village famous for its adobe architecture. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage site and a Game of Thrones filming location.

After exploring Ait Ben Haddou, we’ll ascend to the Tizi n’Tichka pass at 2,200 meters, providing great views. Finally, we’ll descend through mountain villages, and your journey ends at your chosen location in Marrakech or the international airport for your afternoon return flight, concluding our services with hopes of seeing you on another Moroccan tour soon.

Reviews

In Morocco, my mother and I stayed for three days. We received a friend's recommendation to take the 3-day desert excursion from Fes to Marrakech. We saw that this agency had a lot of positive evaluations when we looked at their testimonials. So we made the decision to arrange a trip with them. I can only say that the service was a huge surprise! They were a great help to us throughout the journey. Additionally, Hassan, our guide, was highly knowledgeable and took great care to explain the customs and culture of Morocco. The tents in the desert of Merzouga were unbelievable, to say the least. Highly advised, and be sure to pick Hassan as your guide!
