DAY 1 : OUARZAZATE - DADES VALLEY:

We spend this night in the heart of the Dades Gorge in local riad with dinner and breakfast.
DAY 2 : DADES VALLEY - TODGHA GORGES - MERZOUGA AND CAMEL TREK:
After breakfast in the riad, we’ll drive through the valley to see rock formation “the monkey toes”. Leaving the Dades Valley towards Tinghir and the Todgha valley we’ll see panoramic views of the old mud Berber villages overlooking the valley. Arriving at the Gorge you’ll walk under the 300 m high red cliff, where many Rock-climbers come to enjoy their preferred sport. Continuing on to Erfoud and Rissani where we’ll have lunch and afterwards, we’ll leave for the village of Merzouga, where your camel will be waiting you. You’ll be welcomed with a glass of mint tea and a desert scarf before your camel-ride starts heading into the mysterious sand-sea of the Erg-Chebbi, guided by an experienced camel guide of course. Here you will spend your first night under the stars, or if you prefer, in a traditional Berber nomad tent.
DAY 3 : MERZOUGA - DRAA VALLEY - MARRAKECH:
Your camel guide will wake you up to see the sunrise, then you’ll peacefully camel-trek back to the village of Merzouga appreciating the unique beauty of the spectacular Erg Chebbi dunes – changing with the light as the day progresses. Arriving back in Merzouga and after breakfast and hot shower in the guesthouse, we’ll leave for Ouarzazate passing by the famous Draa Valley-full of palm-trees-stop for lunch in the way and continue to Marrakech over the Tizi n'Tichka pass again and end of the tour.
