Ancient Fortresses and Awe-Inspiring Mountains
We’ll pick you up from your hotel or riad after breakfast, then head through the stunning High Atlas, immediately plunging you into outstanding natural beauty, soaring peaks, deep valleys and jagged ridges.
We’ll wind through the magnificent Tizi N’tichka, the mountain pass that creeps through the imposing range, stopping at various points to fully absorb the panoramic views.
Eventually, we arrive at the Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah, which is recognised by UNESCO as a world heritage site. This jaw-dropping fortified village, looking in itself like a mountain of red-orange houses and walls, is a famous backdrop of many films like “Gladiator” and “Game of Thrones”.
Take the chance here to explore the winding, climbing stairways and alleys, transporting yourself back in time as you discover hidden, shaded corners and ornately carved alcoves.
After lunch, our drive continues and it’s time to enjoy the beauty of the ever-changing Moroccan landscape.
You’ll visit the stunning Valley of Roses in Skoura. The river here is smothered by a vibrantly, riotously pink carpet of roses, the perfumed fragrance rising up the ochre walls of the valley past 500-year-old olive trees.
Our day will finish when we arrive at the hotel where you will have a delicious, traditionally cooked dinner, an overnight stay in beautiful, luxurious settings.
