   Day 4 : FEZ - ERFOUD :

An unforgettable scenic journey through ever-changing landscapes on your way to the mystical deep south. Morning break in the Quiet SWISS-style village of Ifrane. Verdant cedar forests give way to volcanic mountains and wind-swept plains as you drive across the Middle Atlas range to Midelt. Pass fortified mud-and-straw villages, and spot young shepherds driving their flocks to scant pastures. Descent into the spectacular Ziz Gorges, and arrive in
Er-Rachidia, an important crossroad once controlled by the French Foreign Legion.
Afterwards, the landscape becomes progressively more arid, and you enter a stony desert. On your last stretch to Erfoud, an unexpected and breathtaking surprise: the miraculous and peaceful Oasis of Ziz Valley, dotted with palm-fringed towns, fortified strongholds, and scenes of timeless rural life.
Erfoud is the gate to the 450 foot-high Erg Chebbi sand dunes, about one hour drive by Land Rover. Thus, you have the choice either to spend the night in Erfoud, and very early the next day, you will be offered an exciting four-wheel-drive safari tour for a close-up encounter with the Sahara Desert. Or, as soon as you arrive to Erfoud, you are offered a Land Rover drive to the sand dunes of Merzouga and overnight in a Berber tent.


Drive along the eastern slopes of the High Atlas mountains to the enchanting oasis of Tinerhir. Follow its lush valley, where crops grow in the shade of date palms, hemmed in by mud-brick villages and barren mountains, to one of Morocco's most impressive natural sights: the Todra Gorge, or the " Grand Canyon of the Sahara ". Explore its narrowest point, just 33 feet wide, but some 950 feet high, with a crystal-clear river running through it.
Drive further west through the Dadès Valley, called " Valley of the thousand and one kasbahs " for its superb and noble fortresses, and " Rose Valley " for the intense scent from the local cultivation of roses. Arrive at the resort town of Ouarzazate, famous for its film studios.


A short drive takes you to the walled Berber village of Ait-Ben-Haddou designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Pass through picturesque villages surrounded by craggy mountains while driving towards the 7,414-foot-high Tizi-n-Tichka Pass in the heart of the High Atlas mountains. Each new twist in the road leads to a different, more dramatic landscape. Leaving the pass behind, the landscape gradually changes to a green mantle. Arrival in the red-colored Imperial city of Marrakech, situated in an oasis of more than half a million palm trees and surrounded by deep walls. In the late afternoon, enjoy a leisurely carriage ride and a stroll through the exquisite YVES SAINT LAURENT GARDENS.
