Marrakech Desert Trips

Behind the high Atlas Mountains lies a mysterious landscape, surreal and beautiful, we are in the heart of Morocco, where the Sahara desert is born. It is a sensation of going back in time and forgetting the existence of the world. You will be exposed to a world of fortifications, small houses, Berber castles called Kasbahs, and forts abandoned by foreign legions. These were once part of the camel routes between Marrakech and the major trading capitals of Sahara.

The trip here is a beautiful experience. The Marrakech road goes to the very top of the Atlas forests at an altitude of 2200 meters, through the Tizi n'Tichka mountain pass. Then arrive to the beautiful surroundings of Ouarzazate. On your tours you can visit Kasbah AIt Ben Haddou – or fortified Palace. This ancient Kasbah is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987.

The Moroccan Sahara Desert

There are many excursions that offer you the possibility of visiting the desert and even sleeping one night in a tent.

If you want to see the desert, it is best to visit Morocco in winter or fall or spring, as they are the only seasons of the year most recommend for a desert visit. Follow up with us for the best routes, tours or tours that fit your needs.

In the desert the temperatures are deceiving. During the day the heat is unbearable, with temperatures reaching even 30 degrees in winter and at night is usually cold so it is recommended to wear some warm clothing and if you spend the night in a tent, it is advisable to bring a sleeping bag.

The Moroccan desert does not respond to the classic desert image of large dunes (although there are some), but despite this, it is a place of an evocative beauty that will transform the way of seeing the world of any traveler who travels by car , bus or, on foot or by bicycle. The Draa valley, the Todra Gorge or the dunes of Merzouga will not leave anyone indifferent and the possibility of spending the night in magnificent traditional houses overlooking a palm grove in Knob or Agdz will complete an unforgettable experience.

On both sides of the road, the traveler will be amazed by the succession of colors ranging from jet black to bright orange, through the golden dunes, the greenery of sudden palm groves and the white peaks of the atlas that frame the landscape. Flocks of sheep and camels are common even though one wonders what pasture they can get in the infinite rocky areas.
