Discover authentic Berber culture on this stunning 9-day tour of Southern Morocco, and get under the skin of the country to experience the local side of the country, and see the sites that tourists miss. From magnificent fortified cities to dramatic gorges and mountains, endless deserts to bustling markets, this tour provides the perfect combination of incredible sights and hidden local gems, for those who wish to get to know the real Morocco.
This is your chance to experience a Moroccan tour that is different to your basic tourist trail. It’s a chance for you to join local people and discover a culture entirely unique and different from your own, as you experience life like a Berber: eating the local food, meeting the local people and doing the things that locals do day in, day out.
The tour will allow you to jump off at some of the most fascinating sites in southeast Morocco and will allow you to experience each place like a local. And the driving isn’t bad either.
From crossing over the spectacular piece of engineering, Tizi n’Tichka, and its white-knuckle series of switchbacks providing jaw-dropping views, to passing through the abandoned Glaoui Kasbah, you’ll find some of the most stunning roads in the world.
Discover incredible examples of old fortified towns and cities, and explore winding staircases and shady alleyways at Talouate, one of the most magnificent sights in the Atlas, and the UNESCO-protected red mud-brick Ksar of Ait Benhaddou.
Explore the route of a Thousand Kasbahs to the deep, dramatic gorges of Dades and Todgha, before setting your compass for Morocco’s wildest desert, Erg Chigaga. Here, you’ll stay in a beautiful desert camp, sleeping under the stars in one of the most alien, otherworldly landscapes on earth.
You’ll reach the desert by passing through Draa Valley, a myriad of colors within the rolling hills and rugged mountains. The landscape here seems barren, yet life finds a way to push its way through the rocky soil in the shape of emerald green palm trees.
Eventually, you will leave the desert for the African center of l’orrouge (red gold), or saffron, the most expensive spice, before heading north to Marrakech over another route through the High Atlas Mountains – a road trip you are sure to remember forever and, thanks to gorgeous weather year-round, the perfect winter sun experience.
