Our 2-day Sahara desert tour from Fes will start at any meeting point in Fes, and embark on a journey towards the largest Moroccan desert.
First, we will make our way to Ifrane by crossing the Middle Atlas Mountains. This range is famous for its lush green mountains and far-reaching views of Berber villages.

Subsequently, you will cross the High Atlas Mountains, where your driver will stop for some photo opportunities.
Third, you will see the Ziz Valley and then cross the city of Erfoud on your way to the Merzouga Desert.
