Check our Overnight Desert Tour from Fes and back to Fes for those who don't have time and don't want to miss the sahara desert.
Your tour begins at 7 am when your experienced, English speaking driver and guide from Fes Authentic Tours will pick you up from your hotel or riad to begin your unforgettable journey to Merzouga in the Sahara Desert where the Erg Chebbi Dunes await. Famed for their great height; up to 50 metres tall, and stretching away eastwards all the way into Algeria, this is one of Morocco's 'must do' experiences.
But first, you will have the thrill of the drive up into the mighty Atlas mountains where the first stop will be in Ifrane, known as Morocco's Switzerland because of it's alpine style of architecture. The next stop is in the aromatic cedar forests around the tranquil town of Azrou, where you can see the renowned Barbary Apes, actually Macaque monkeys, happily living in their natural habitat and always willing to steal your lunch! Then the beautiful drive continues through the mountains until you reach the main edge of Sahara town of Rissani and onwards into the desert until , as if by magic, the Erg Chebbi Dunes suddenly appear out of nowhere. Then, the highlight of the day : a ninety minute camel trek under the setting sun to reach our Berber encampment which is surrounded by the towering sand dunes. Here you can relax listening to traditional Berber music and watch the bright moon and myriad of stars, seemingly so close you could touch them. Enjoy your specially prepared dinner and drift off to sleep under the stars in the amazing Sahara Desert camp.
Wake up to a breathtaking sunrise over the dunes and ride your camel back through the ever shifting shadows to our hotel. After breakfast, the journey back to Fes through the Mighty Middle Atlas Mountains.
