4-Day Agadir Desert Tour Itinerary
Day 1: Agadir to Ouarzazate
We will travel to Ouarzazate on the first day of our 4-day desert tour itinerary from Agadir. In the Sous Valley, we will travel through numerous fascinating Berber communities. We’ll have the chance to tour Taroudant, also known as “Little Marrakech” by locals. The Saadian dynasty built the town as a military outpost to counter the Portuguese invasion. You will also explore its old Medina before continuing on to Taliouine and Taznakht.
The Kasbah, or castle of Ait Benhaddou, will be our next visit. The latter is Morocco’s largest Kasbah and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After that, we’ll drive to Ouarzazate’s movie city. It is well-known for its Atlas Studios, which makes it an excellent site for filming. Many films and television productions, including Prison Break and Gladiator, were filmed there. You will be able to tour their studios, and we will transport you to your lodging at the conclusion of the day.
Day 2: Ouarzazate to Merzouga desert
After breakfast, we’ll begin our 4-day desert excursion from Agadir to Merzouga in the Sahara desert. Before then, we’ll go via the Skoura and Rose Valley oasis areas before arriving at Todgha Gorges. We’ll stop there for lunch and to take in the canyon’s breathtaking walls. Following that, we’ll visit Touroug, Erfoud, and Merzouga. Your camels will be waiting for you when you get at Merzouga. You’ll ride them across the Erg Chebbi sand dunes to a native Berber tent for the night. As you relax and enjoy your time under a beautiful starry sky, locals will entertain you with music around the fire.
Day 3: Merzouga to Agdz
You will have an excellent chance to watch a beautiful sunrise from the top of the dunes on this day of your 4-day desert tour from Agadir. Following that, you will have breakfast before we go to Rissani. We will go through a typical market in this city that becomes packed on Souk days. There are traditional items for sale. Then we’ll journey across the Draa Valley, passing via Alnif, Tazarrine, and Nkob. On your trip to Agdez, you’ll have the option of driving off-road over the historic caravan route and ancient kasbahs.
Day 4: Agdez to Agadir
After breakfast, we drive from Agdz to Taznakht, a town famous for its Berber gelims and carpets. On the way, we travel through beautiful landscapes and the Bouazzer mines. This is a more isolated and off-the-beaten-path region of the country. Later, we will go west to Agadir over the Tizi-n-Ikhsane and Tizi-n-Tighatine passes. We stop for lunch at Taliouine, Morocco’s saffron-growing region, where there is an excellent, modest museum dedicated to the art of saffron farming. The path returns us to Taroudant in the afternoon, where we follow the often-dry Souss River and innumerable argan trees on all the mountain slopes back to Agadir, where we arrive at the end of the afternoon.
