A Glimpse of Nature's Beauty: As we journey onwards, prepare to be captivated by the Middle Atlas Mountains, their slopes carpeted with verdant forests and Berber villages clinging to the hillsides. A stop at the cedar forests of Azrou awaits, where you'll have the opportunity to see playful Barbary macaques roaming free. Capture unforgettable pictures amidst this enchanting natural landscape, a perfect introduction to Morocco's diverse ecosystems. A Journey Through the Mountains: After a delicious lunch break, we'll tackle the majestic Middle Atlas Mountains. Wind your way through breathtaking landscapes, enjoying panoramic vistas that will leave you speechless. As we near the town of Rich, take a right turn and traverse the fabled village of Imilchil, known for its annual "F žen" (marriage) festival. Reaching the Todra Gorges: By late afternoon, we'll arrive at the awe-inspiring Todra Gorges, a natural wonder carved by the Todra River over millennia. Towering cliffs, reaching up to 300 meters, will leave you in awe of nature's power. Settle into your hotel for the evening, and savor a delicious dinner, reflecting on the day's captivating experiences.
Fueled by a delicious breakfast at your hotel, we'll depart the Todra Gorges and embark on a journey towards Merzouga, the gateway to the Sahara Desert. As we travel, keep your eyes peeled for the charming Berber villages dotting the landscape – Tinjdad, Jorf, and Erfoud. In Erfoud, you may even catch a glimpse of the fascinating date fossils the region is known for, a testament to the area's ancient past. A Warm Welcome Awaits: As we arrive in Merzouga, a refreshing cup of Moroccan mint tea awaits – a delightful way to begin your desert adventure. Prepare to saddle up for an unforgettable experience – a camel trek through the golden Erg Chebbi dunes. Gently swaying atop your camel, soak in the vastness of the desert stretching towards the horizon. Sunset Spectacle & Desert Delights: Our camel trek culminates at the desert camp, your haven for the night. Dismount from your camels and climb the highest dunes to witness a spectacle that will leave you breathless – the sun dipping below the horizon, painting the sky in a vibrant palette of colors. Feel the desert sand beneath your feet as you try your hand at sandboarding, adding a touch of excitement to the experience. As twilight descends, a delicious dinner awaits you in a traditional Berber tent, accompanied by the rhythmic sounds of Berber drums. Savor the authentic flavors of Moroccan cuisine under a blanket of stars, sharing stories and laughter with your fellow travelers. Get ready for a night unlike any other, a night embraced by the magic of the Sahara Desert.
Rise before dawn to witness a mesmerizing spectacle – the sunrise over the Erg Chebbi dunes. As the first rays of light paint the sky in vibrant hues, capture the breathtaking panorama one last time. Savor a delicious breakfast at the camp, fueled for the journey back to Fes. A Glimpse into Nomadic Life: Before departing the desert, we'll have the opportunity to connect with a nomadic family. Enjoy a cup of tea with them, a gesture of hospitality deeply rooted in Berber culture. Gain insights into their way of life, their resilience, and their deep connection to the desert landscape. Crossing the High Atlas Mountains: We'll bid farewell to the desert and embark on the return journey to Fes.

This impressive mountain town, located at an altitude of 1488 meters, offers a welcome respite and a chance to savor delicious Moroccan cuisine. Returning to the Bustle of Fes: With our hearts full of memories, we'll depart Midelt in the afternoon and make our way back to Fes.
