A Morocco city to desert adventure, with stays in Marrakech, Dades Gorges and the Sahara, with breakfast, all travel and optional excursions, including a camel trek and more

Explore intoxicating Morocco with this whistlestop adventure which whisks you between three memorable destinations. Begin in mesmerising Marrakech with an overnight stay at Riad Haraka, set in the heart of the medina, close to famous Jemaa El Fna square. With a final one or three nights here, you’ll have plenty of time for souk shopping, sightseeing, museum and mosque visits and more.

Move on from the city bustle through the beautiful High Atlas mountains to the Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou for lunch, before reaching the jaw-dropping Dades Gorges – a supremely dramatic and breathtaking river canyon. You’ll stay overnight at Kasbah de Dades, which is perfectly positioned for contemplating this amazing natural wonder.

Venture further out into the wilds as you travel deep into the vast Sahara Desert to the charming Berber village of Merzouga. From here, you’ll camp out for the night under the stars in an authentic but supremely comfortable nomad tent. The next day, you can opt for a 4x4 trip into the dunes, where you can embrace your inner Berber with a leisurely camel trek. Return to Merzouga for a night’s stay at the grand Nasser Palace, complete with an enticing swimming pool. Return to Marrakech for a further one or three nights before flying back home.
