Morocco Itinerary: Marrakech to Fes desert tour 3 days


On the first day of our 3 days desert tour from Marrakesh to Fes, we are going to pick you up at your hotel/ Riad in Marrakesh and head over to Boumalne Dades.

As we drive through the High Atlas Mountains, we are going to make a few stops and take some pictures of those mountains and landscapes of genuine beauty and serenity. After that, we are going to continue all the way to the Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou on the outskirts of Ouarzazate city.

Get ready to be taken back to a bygone era as you stroll through the unique beauty of this kasbah and learn about its long and fascinating history – including its appearance in several box-office Hollywood hits.

You will then enjoy a traditional Berber lunch at one of Ouarzazate’s best restaurants, just a few miles away from the kasbah of Ait Benhaddou. Just after lunch, you will visit another Kasbah nearby, Kasbah Amridil.

Speaking of Hollywood, Ouarzazate is often referred to as the little Hollywood of Africa thanks to its Atlas Studios. Many famous local and foreign movies have been shot there, which makes it a top destination in Morocco receiving hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. 

A stop in the Rose Valley is also a must, where you will have the chance to pick up any of your favorite rose-themed products. Peruse the more than one hundred different ways in which roses are used, ranging anywhere from beauty products to cooking products to simply giving a lovely scent to your home.

From there you’ll depart to your hotel in Boumalne Dades.


On the second day of our Marrakech to Fes desert tour 3 days, you’ll leave for the Sahara Desert. On the way, there will be a number of stops in various beautiful places, such as the Valley of Todgha and the Gorges of Toudgha, situated a few miles from Tinghir, a small Berber town in the Southeastern region of Morocco.

After that, you’ll continue to Tinjdad for a delicious lunch before driving through Mellab, Eljorf, and Erfoud, several interesting desert towns that are known as the gateway to the Sahara Desert.

When you reach your destination in the Sahara Desert, you will be welcomed with a glass of mint tea before setting off on your camel ride. Immerse yourself in one of the most spectacular experiences the desert has to offer as you are taken across some of the highest dunes amongst the backdrop of a Saharan sunset.

The camels will take you to your luxury desert camp for the night, while your luggage will be taken to the camp by our driver.



On the third and last day of our Marrakech to Fes desert tour 3 days, we are going to hit the road to Fes where our journey comes to an end.

We’ll take you through a road filled with wonderful scenery, palm groves, mountains, and cedar forests all the way to the imperial city of Fes. The latter is where we’ll drop you off either at your Riad or at the airport depending on your plans.

Our first stop will be at the Ziz Valley. After that, we will stop for lunch at the Apple capital, Midalt. Next, you will get some time to feed wild monkeys in the Cedar forest. After that, you will explore Ifrane known as “Little Switzerland,” on your own.

Reviews about our Marrakech to Fes desert tour 3 days

My girlfriend and I had the best 3-day tour from Marrakech all the way to Fes. We’ve seen Marrakech and been to the Sahara Desert, had a lot of fun moments throughout our journey. Our driver Rachid is a great guy, as he’d stop whenever we wanted to; plus, He was super kind all the way from the start till the end. Also, We were able to learn and appreciate the culture throughout the journey.

The night in the luxury desert camp and the stops for panoramic views of the Atlas Mountains were the tour’s highlights. Again, many thanks to the Holidays in Morocco for a wonderful 3-day desert tour journey!

Best 3-day tour from Marrakech to Fes. We had a lot of fun and saw a lot of wonderful places. Rachid from Holidays in Morocco who was our guide, was really nice and patient with us. He taught us a lot about Morocco’s history and geography and so much about the Berber traditions as he is one of them.

Having a personalized tour with this company made it easy for us, bc we had the freedom to avoid the stuff we didn’t want to see, and Rachid made his way to make sure we got precisely what we needed, even if it meant making an extra stop here and there. The rooms at the accommodations and meals were excellent. Holidays in Morocco crew’s the best
