We have designed for you, this special shared desert tour from fes to marrakech to realize your wildest dream… invite you to the South of Morocco; where the desert lies with its golden clothes on the sand dunes, the numerous valleys. The desert always restarts where sand, wind and sun are linked to hug only the infinite.
Combined with the visit of the ‘Red City’ Marrakech, one of the imperial cities of Morocco, a city built by the Berbers (also known as the Amazigh); who have a history that predates the arrival of Islam and the Arabs. A journey across the Atlas Mountains is a wonderful way for exploring the country. There are so many Kasbahs, villages, valleys and charming landscapes who will give you an idea of the Berber way of life; and will make your journey a splash of colours, contrast & joy!!!
