Perfect for those who cannot spare more than one day but anxiously wish to get a glimpse of the majestic desert of Morocco. All entrance fees and attractions tour guides are included.

Options available to test your camel riding skills in a festival of laughter or lunch in a panoramic local restaurant.

Embark on this exciting adventure from Marrakech across the magnificent High Atlas Mountains whose snowy peaks blend into the clouds offering an impressive landscape and absolutely stunning scenery at every turn with its Ancient Kasbahs, caravan routes, UNESCO World Heritage sites, traditional Berber villages, and rich culture of southern Morocco. Discover what makes Ait Ben Haddou a backdrop to hundreds of Hollywood films.

A scenic drive from Marrakech over the highest mountain pass of North Africa (2,269 meters) Tizi-N-Tichka, where you will have fascinating views of the High Atlas walls. Continue until you reach the famous Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou, the fortified clay city listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Studded with crenellated towers and decorated with geometrical patterns, it is truly one of the world’s cultural treasures. 

Test your camel riding skills with plenty of laughter (optional), have a lunch break (optional) and relax in a typical Ait Ben Haddou restaurant with great panoramic views of the kasbah that will take you to a world where time seems to stand still. 

Drive back to Marrakech later in the afternoon while crossing the High Atlas Mountains.

Drop-off at your hotel in Marrakech in the evening, not just with photos you've captured, but with stories and memories of personal encounters with the indigenous people and a good sense of the beauty and hospitality of the Moroccan desert.
