ITINERARY: 8 DAYS TANGIER TO MARRAKECH TRIP

 

 

Day 1

Tangier – Tetouan – Chaouen  

 

We leave Tangier heading to Tetouan, city located next to the Rif Mountains  declared World Heritage Site. Its medina is composed of winding streets. We continue the road to Chaouen, the blue town. It is one of the iconic places in Morocco. A show of blues. Here we will spend the first night.    

 

 Day 2

Chaouen, free day  

 

The second day you are free to explore the city and take beautiful pictures. In each of the streets of the medina there is a magical corner  to take a photo. The blue and white color relieves the suffocating summer heat and frightens mosquitoes. The Kasbah was built by Muley Ismail at the end of the 17th century and is an essential visit. This impressive medieval fortress is fully walled by solid reddish walls and in one of its side corners is the Tower of Homage For nature lovers, leaving the medina through the easternmost door (Bab el Onsar) you can see the spring of Ras el Maa that springs in the form of a waterfall on the side of the mountain. Water so cold and crystal clear that the locals say that “when they drink it, they break their teeth”.

 

 

Day 3

Chaouen – Volubilis – Moulay Idriss – Fez  

We leave Chaouen and heading to Volubilis, the largest and best preserved Roman settlement in North Africa declared a World Heritage Site. The ruins of Volubilis, are surrounded by walls and you can clearly see inside the areas of the hot springs so important in the Arab culture. Next we go to the holy city of Moulay Idriss where there is a minaret in a rounded shape with engravings of verses from the Koran. The road takes us to Fez, one of the Imperial Cities of Morocco, where we will sleep for today

 

 

Day 4

Fes, free day  

Fes is the intellectual and historical capital of Morocco, declared a World Heritage Site. The city is divided into 3 parts: Fez el-Bali the is  the oldest area within the walls, Fez el-Jdid where Mellah is located with the Jewish quarter and Nouvelle Ville (Villa Nueva), the French zone in the northwest of the city. From the viewpoint you can really check the magnitude of its medina, with more than 9,000 labyrinths, which somehow contains those 3 neighborhoods or medinas inside. During the day off you can walk the streets of the medina, visit the tanneries (Chouara), the Medersa Attarine, one of the main schools of the Koranic religion of Fez and is one of the most interesting madrassas of the city. You can also enjoy some shopping in the souks.

 

 

Day 5

Fes – Ifrane – Azrou – Midelt – Ziz Valley – Merzouga Desert  

 

On the fifth day we leave Fez in the direction of the Middle Atlas by Ifrane, known as the Switzerland of Africa or the small Switzerland, the roofs of the houses simulate this European city, as it is an area of ​​great snowfall. We continue to Azrou, where there is an extensive forest with the longest trees in Morocco, some of them are over 100 years old, they are cedar, holm oak and cork oak forests and therefore the area is home to a large wooden handicraft industry. Arriving at the Ziz Valley, we can not miss to observe a large green tongue in the form of zig-zag, several kilometers. We continue until we reach the impressive sand dunes of the Merzouga desert.

 

 

Day 6

Merzouga – Khamlia – Visit to the Nomads – Mifis mines – dune camp    

 

Today we are going to visit the surroundings of Merzouga. We travel by the SUV villages and towns of Berber nomads, who live in dromedary skin khaimas or small mud and straw constructions, the houses of the villages in the area are all built in adobe. We visit the now almost abandoned Minas de Mifis and enjoy the lively Gnawa music in Khamlia, known as the “village of blacks.” After lunch we return to the riad to change transport. The dromedaries take us to the haimas camp where we spend a night that you will remember with emotion all your life. The experience includes typical moroccan dinner, berber drums around the fire and a blanket of stars at night.

 

 

 

Day 7

Merzouga – Rissani – Todra Gorges – Dades Gorges – Skoura – Ouarzazate  

 

We wake up watching a show in the dunes and return with the dromedaries to the riad. We start the day in Rissani, its souk runs 3 days a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. We continue to Todra Gorges and Dades Gorges with its canyons and beautiful landscapes with unique color contrasts. Next we find the Valley of the roses in Kalaat M´Gouna. We continue until we reach the palm grove of Skoura on the route of the 1000 kashbahs, visiting the Kasbah Ameridil. We continue to the mecca of cinema in Morocco, the city of Ouarzazate, where we will sleep today.  Many movies have been shot here and you find though the city what one day were stages in the city.       

 

Day 8

Ouarzazate – Ait Ben Haddou – Marrakech  

 

We leave Ouarzazte, for a few kilometers we leave the road that will take us to Marrakech to visit the kashbah of Ait Ben Haddou, a World Heritage Site and scenary of different films. It is a group of adobe houses surrounded by high walls crowned by towers. The houses were piled up within the defensive walls, and were designed to defend the harvest and the palm groves that grew along the rivers. After the visit we will continue the journey back through the sharp curves of the High Atlas and the Tizi n´Tichka mountain pass, to finish in Marrakech.
