As the evening progresses, Jemaa el-Fna, the main square and market place of Marrakech comes alive with musicians and storytellers, acrobats and dancers, and even snake charmers.

Relax at a local hammam (spa) which is an ancient tradition in Marrakech, where you can try out ancient beauty rituals.

This four-hour drive will also take you along Tizi n’ Tichka pass and treat you with stunning panoramic views, a curated travel experience to make your Morocco custom tour package memorable. Continue your journey to the medieval Aït Benhaddou, a UNESCO protected site and the most famous Kasbah (fort or fortification) in the country. It held an important position along the trans-Saharan trade route. There are many Hollywood scenes shot here for movies and shows such as Gladiator, The Mummy, Prince of Persia, Game of Thrones, etc.

Drive to Erg Chebbi (Sahara Desert) via Ouarzazate and Todra Gorge

After breakfast, continue east to the desert hub along the Valley of a Thousand Kasbahs towards Boumalne Dades, passing many small towns where you will see traditional farming methods still in use. Along the way, you will have the opportunity to explore the Todra Gorge, a series of limestone river canyons. As you approach Merzouga—the town closest to the Sahara—stop in the market town of Rissani and be sure to visit the livestock auction as well as the “donkey parking lot”. Leaving Rissani behind, you will start noticing the massive dunes of Erg Chebbi, looming on the horizon. You will leave the car and hop on your personal camel to begin your trek over the dunes until you arrive in the Bedouin style camp. Enjoy a warm dinner by the fire, listening to traditional music.

Today, you will have the full day to yourself to explore the stunning surroundings of the Sahara. You can rent a sandboard or a quad ATV and join a local group. In the evening, hike to the top of a nearby dune to watch the setting sun, before enjoying a warm meal prepared by local Berber tribesmen and cozy up by the fire as you are serenaded by live music.

Along the road, you will see many fortified houses known as “ksars,” built by merchants to produce precious goods like gold, salt, and spices. You will continue into the Ziz Valley, known for its hidden oases and palm tree clusters and continue over the Tizi-n-Talremt pass. The scenic journey will take you through the cedar forests of the Middle Atlas mountains and over the Col du Zad Pass. By evening, you will reach Fes, the cultural capital of the country.

Day 07

Fes

Today, you will explore Fes, the oldest of the Imperial Cities in Morocco. Since the city never experienced much colonial development, much of Fes feels like stepping back in time hundreds of years ago. Fes is also considered as the world’s largest car-free urban zone. Keep an eye out for the mule-drawn carriages that speed through the alleyways. A must-see in Fes is the world’s oldest and the longest-operating institution of higher learning, the University of Al Quaraouiyine, which was founded in 859AD. Visit a honey souk to taste a variety of wild honey and visit a communal hammam bathhouse. Conclude the evening by enjoying the sunset from the Merenid Tombs in the north or Borj Sud in the south; both viewpoints offer fantastic views of this dynamic city with timeless roots.

Drive to the “Blue City” of Chefchaouen

Today, you will say goodbye to Fes and travel north to Chefchaouen. On the way, visit Volubilis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is home to Morocco’s best-preserved Roman ruins. You can take a nice break from the road and walk around the massive complex, exploring large merchant homes with visible heating systems, temples, and many well-preserved mosaics. There are usually guides available here to hire on your own if you would like. You will then make your way to Chefchaouen. This little city is a visual delight in blue; walls, doors, windows, stairways, alleyways, and archways–everything is a combination of pastel, sky-blue and deeper, more powerful hues. Chefchaouen is located in the heart of the Rif Mountains and is popular for travelers who want to get the feeling of old Morocco.

On the other side of the river, you can take the steep path to God’s Bridge, a natural rock formation. Once back in Chefchaouen, visit the medina and surround yourself in the beauty of the town.
