20161025_182728

Day 1: Marrakech  –  Essaouira

After breakfast we head our way to Essaouira, one of the interesting Moroccon cities just by the Atlantic Ocean. This evening we’ll stay overnight in Essaouira.


Day 2: Essaouira

Free day in this unique town. Today you can practice wind surfing, relax on the beaches, lose your way in the medina with its narrow lanes, white washed houses, tranquil squares, pleasant cafes and artisans in tiny workshops. Tasting grilled sardines and fish at the Essaouira port can be also a nice experience.


Day 3 : Essaouira –  Agadir – Taroudant

After a scenic drive along the Atlantic coast through “Argane Trees Forests” and “Bananas Plantations”, we’ll arrive in Taroudant, a Berber market town located on the fertile Souss Valley, an important spot in the Trans Sahara caravan routes. We’ll visit the ramparts of this interesting town, the main “souk” which is a spot for Berber jewellery before checking into our hotel.

Day 4: Taroudant  – Taliouine – Tazenakht  – Ouarzazate  – roses valley

A long day is awaiting us. Today we’ll drive along the Oasis, palmeraies, Berber villages and kasbahs through the High Atlas mountains until we reach Rose valley. We’ll pass by Taliouine, the city enclosed by medieval walls which look best at dusk, when the gold, pink and orange colors are brought out by the setting sun and then by Tazenakht and Ouarzazate. The village of Klaat Mgouna is very modest by all standards and reflects the original  & traditional life of Morocco. This evening we’ll stay in RIAD TAZAWA .

Day 5 : Rose  Valley – Ait benhadou- Marrakech

Today we’ll first discover Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou, one of the most authentic and well maintained villages in the region of Atlas. Then we’ll proceed to Marrakech via the High Atlas mountain and 2260 meters high Tizi n Tichka pass offering magnificent views and a unique landscape. In the afternoon we’ll arrive in Marrakech and start to explore this fascinating city. Marrakech is the point where the Arab culture of the cities meets the Berber culture of the mountain villages; where the weary sub-Saharan traders (carrying gold, salt and slaves) would ply their wares to the merchants who would then bring them to Europe. Today we will visit Djemaa el Fna Square full with story tellers, snake charmers, acrobats, musicians, folklore dancers..
