Day 1 : Marrakech - Ouarzazate - Kalaa'tMgouna

Weekend Desert Tour from Marrakech to Fes , Better to start early. The road that leads to the desert follows the trail of the ancient caravan. Leave Marrakech behind and scavalla the Atlas by the pitch of Tiz'nTichka than 2,260 meters above sea level with a surprising lyverdant plateau, full of flocks. It is the step of pastures, such as itsArabic name. After the pink city, the mountain fills the sight of colors: up to eight, counting the whole range of reds and greens of the land between conifers, palms and oleanders paints the landscape.

You get to Ouarzazate and everything becomes barren. The red gives way to yellow which anticipates the desert. The city, today is the tourist hub of great importance as it is place dat the confluence of three valleys: Dades, Dràa and Rose Valley. It is also the Hollywood of Africa, because it is here that the American majors that seem to run the film set in the East.

Proceed to the Valley of Roses and stop in the capital of this oasis planted with rose bushes. Kalaa't Mgouna has a dual personality; The first follows the scent of freshly picked buds and intoxicates with water and oil essence. The second, forging daggers ceremony. The sweet side and the aggressive center where we will stop for dinner on the first night of the tour at the hotel.

Day 2 : Kalaa'tMgouna - Boumalne Dades - Merzouga

The capital city of roses in the background is from the early hours of the morning. The landscape is dotted with the remains of the castles of the earth, only those twin buildings in Yemen. These are the houses, some in excellent condition, other scrumbling of the feudal lords of the area. Signs of a rigidly hierarchical power that organized until recently, the life of the oasis. Continue over Boumalne Dades, we enter in the Gorges of Dades, to discover unique landscapes, at the foot of the Atlas. According to many legends, along the gorges of Dades would still be living lions of Atlantis; the mostreliable historical sources, however, agree that the last specimen was shot down at the beginning of the twentieth century.

They visit, continuing, even the Todra Gorge, nestled in the valley of Oued Rheriss th is small tributary; are the most spectacular of the entire country.

When you arrive in Erfoud, the desert is upon us. But it is with immense dunes of Erg Chebbi, near the oasis of Merzouga, the highest you'llever meet in Morocco that you feel arrived. It is the true desert, the one where the annual rain fall below 100 millimeters. This is the place where, oasis apart, nothing grows, nothing moves. Aside from the wind model of continuous horizon. Leave the car at the end of the paved road, it will lead us to the camel to the bivouac for the night. A field equipped and guarded, where you can dine in the light of the fire, you will not miss a second of the spectacle of the starry sky. Sleeping in tent sis almost a sin, to turn off the light on the most beautiful.

Day 3 : Merzouga - Midelt - Fez

As nomads, the only human beings are able to adapt to the difficulties of the desert, you wake up at dawn. You see the sun arise between the waves of a sea of sand. It is the scenery that has inspired writers and photographers, made famous by Paul Bowles, the American writer of Te in the desert: "A purely mineral landscape lighted by stele as rockets, where even memory disappears." Morocco ends here, surprisingly, the only place that you lose infinity beyond the horizon.

A camel returns to the noise of civilization, towards the hotel that hosts us to freshen up and have breakfast.

We are back on the road to the north. You will cross the mountains of the Middle Atlas Western from which there is some of the most beautiful stretches of cedar and hazel born in Morocco and most important rivers. Landscapes chase in particular in the area of Azrou, Ifrane, popular center for winter sports, known as "the Switzerland of Morocco." It makes a stop in Midelt and then proceed to Fez, the oldest of the imperial cities, the most important historical and artistic center of the country
