Itinerary: 3 Days from Marrakech to Merzouga Desert ending in Fes

Day 1: Marrakech - High Atlas Mountains - Ait Ben Haddou - Ouarzazate

We will cross the Tizi N'Tichka pass (the highest mountain pass in North Africa at 2260m). There will be stops along the way with panoramic views for spectacular photos. On the way, we will visit a local argan oil cooperative, where we will learn about the production process and the countless benefits it has for the human body.
We will continue south to the village of Ait Ben Haddou, where we will visit its Kasbah (declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site). In this spectacular natural setting, famous films such as Gladiator or Jewel of the Nile were filmed. Lunch on the way and continue to the city of Ouarzazate, considered the gateway to the great desert.
We will visit the film studios of Ouarzazate, which are very popular with filmmakers. A number of films have been shot here, including Lawrence of Arabia, Jesus of Nazareth, The Mummy, The Gladiator, Sahara, Alexander the Great and Heaven Protecting, among many others. One of the most famous series of all time has also passed through here: Game of Thrones. Finally we head to our accommodation in Ouarzazate, an authentic and charming Moroccan Riad. In this magical Riad we will have time to relax by the pool and enjoy a delicious mint tea in the gardens. In the evening, we will have dinner and spend the night.

Day 2: Ouarzazate - Valley of Roses and Dades - Todra Gorge - Jorf - Erfoud - Merzouga - Dromedary ride and overnight stay in the desert

After breakfast, early in the morning, we will pass through the palm grove of Skoura and the Valley of Roses, where we will continue our route through a road surrounded by small Berber villages and authentic and historical Kasbahs, all unique and different from each other.
After several photo stops, we will arrive at one of the highlights of the South: the Todra Gorge. The Todra River has formed a gorge with vertical walls of enormous proportions and great beauty; it is a climber's paradise and a place of unique natural beauty. We will make a relaxing stop for lunch and continue our journey towards the most magical and desired point of our 3 Days from Marrakech to Merzouga Desert ending in Fes of Merzouga Erg Chebbi: the impressive dunes of Merzouga.
Once we arrive at the lodge, we will have a hospitality tea while we get some rest. We will leave our luggage and things we will not be using in the desert at the lodge and set off in a camel caravan that will take us to the Haima camp in the middle of the dunes for about an hour. We will make stops along the way to watch the majestic sunset over the Sahara sand. It is here that the dunes take on a reddish colour due to the play of light and shadow of the sun's rays on top of them, a magical spectacle that you won't be able to stop photographing. Once at the camp, we will be welcomed with a hospitality tea and before dinner, we will have free time to stretch our legs and enjoy the relaxation and silence of the dunes.
Afterwards, we will have dinner as a group, under a blanket of stars, in the immense silence of the Sahara dunes. A dinner prepared with authentic Moroccan products. After dinner, under the stars, the Berber party, live music with Berber drums and songs, and if you dare, you can participate by playing the drums yourself. We will have the opportunity to climb the dunes near the camp to discover shooting stars, make wishes and, together with the Berbers, listen to traditional Berber tales. We will spend the night in the middle of the Sahara desert, in the camp (tents in the dunes).
