Description

Situated on the northernmost end of the mighty Sahara Desert, the Erg Chebbi Dunes make for an incredible destination to explore Morocco's diverse and stunning landscapes!

The fun begins after we meet in Marrakech and escape the city. From here, we will drive over Tizi-n-Tichka pass (2,260 meters/7,414 feet) and through the Atlas Mountains, visiting the the kasbah Teloue and hiking along the caravan tracks to kasbah at Ait Benhaddou.

By the end of the day, we will arrive at the edge of the majestic Sahara Desert and spend the evening relaxing.

The following day, we will head out to ‘The Valley Of The Roses’ and walk along the Dades River. Then in the afternoon, we head to the 300-meter deep (984 feet) Todgha Gorge, passing through the stunning Todgha valley en route.

The gorge is frequented by both rock climbers and filmmakers, meaning we're in for a rugged and scenic treat.

To finish off the day, we will ride camels into the desert to a nearby nomad camp, where we will enjoy the sunset of the Sahara and spend the night.

The following day, after getting up early to enjoy the sunrise, we will return to Marrakech and leave you at your hotel.

We had an incredible 2 day trip up Toubkal, both the views and the trek were amazing. Our guide Mohammad and Sonny were amazing and so helpful and welcoming. We felt well looked after the whole time and enjoyed every minute. The food was plentiful and delicious, and all equipment hired was of high quality. Our stay at the refuge was even better than we imagined it would be, warm and comfy. We had the best time and would highly recommend this trip to anyone else!
