Itinerary
  • Marrakechexpand_more

    Begin your day trip with leaving Marrakech at 07:00 with a pick-up from your accommodation, whether it be a riad or a hotel, and follow a well-maintained road to the High Atlas Mountains. After about an hour, the road starts to wind its way along with one of the most scenic roads in Morocco across a landscape of terraced wheat fields, cacti, waving palm trees, and endless views. 

  • Ouarzazat and Ait Ben Haddou Kasbahexpand_more

    Enjoy an adventure across the Tizi n'Tichka mountain pass 2,260 meters (7,410 feet) above sea level, as the road begins to descend, the scenery changes drastically as suddenly as you enter a desert-like area. Soon, it is quite impressive to see the imposing Kasbah Aït Benhaddou. Looking like a mirage, this Kasbah is a UNESCO-listed fortified city whose towers are decorated with geometric patterns. It is open to the public for tours, and if you are lucky, you will get the chance to see them filming a movie. Several well-known films have either been filmed here in their entirety or have had their desert, and villages scenes shot here. Films such as Lawrence of Arabia, Star Wars, and The Gladiator all have the panorama of the Kasbah in common. 

    Continue your journey driving through the edges of the Desert towards Ouarzazate best known for its film studios and the Kasbah of Taourirt, as well as the cinema museum. Choose to have lunch either in the Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou or in the city of Ouarzazate. 

    After the tour of Ouarzazate ride back to Marrakech, crossing the Atlas Mountains and Berber villages. Arrival in the evening and then be dropped off at a central location in Marrakech.
