3 Fes

After breakfast your English-speaking local guide will take you on a tour of Fes, founded in the 8th century. This metropolis, situated in a valley, Morocco’s first capital, is today the kingdom’s intellectual, religious and cultural center. Your full day sightseeing this morning will include the monuments and historical sites such as the Karaouine Mosque, and Nejjarine Fountain. This ancient city will enchant you as you are taken back in time meandering through its narrow alleyways. This afternoon, visit the various markets of the souks and the tanneries (B)

4 Fes/ Midelt / Er Rachidia / Erfoud

After breakfast, we begin our long drive to Erfoud. Depart by way of the Middle Atlas Mountain, the Ski town of Ifrane that resembles a Bavaria ski resort, and the quaint town of Azrou.

Although a simple town, Erfoud is the gateway to one of the most beautiful natural sites in the world, the amazing dunes at Erg Chebbi. (B, D)

From Erfoud, toward Tinerghir, we shall take a detour, crossing a stream and through the palm grove oases leading us to the inspiring Todra Gorges, where we shall stop for tea or lunch. Depart along the Dades River Valley and the Route of 1000 Kasbahs, where you can opt for another detour, again a completely different experience, to the Dades Gorges. Continue through the village of El Kelaa de M’Gouna, famous for its rosewater, a flavor used in many Moroccan dishes. Continue to Ouarzazate for check-in and dinner at the hotel. (B, D)
