5-Day Morocco desert tour from Fes to Marrakech Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival and pick up service to the accommodation

On your first day of the 5-day Morocco tour from Fes to Marrakech, once you arrive at the airport, your driver/guide will be there to take you to your hotel. You will be given a cup of tea to help you relax after your flight.

Day 2: Visiting Fes attractions

During our 5-day Morocco tour from Fes to Marrakech, we will start the day by picking you up from your accommodation. You’ll be guided to Madrasa Bou Inania, which was built in the 14th century, and non-Muslims are welcome to explore. Then, we’ll visit Fes El Bali, the old city, famous for its Riads and places accessible through the main Bab Boujloud gate. Among the attractions are the Al-Andalus Mosque and Medersa Sehrij. 

We will head to the Chouara tanneries, the largest in the city, where craftsmen utilize unique spices and techniques to make handmade leather goods. The best view of this process is from nearby rooftops. We will visit the Mellah, the Jewish Quarter, to explore the 20th-century homes and heritage of Fes’ Jewish community. Finally, we will take you to Fes’ ceramic workshops, where skilled artisans make mosaic tiles and intricate designs on ceramic plates. It’s an opportunity to learn about their artistry.

Day 3: From Fes to Merzouga, camel trekking and night at the camp

On day 3 of our 5-day Morocco desert tour from Fes to Marrakech, our team will pick you up from your hotel or Riad in the morning. You will go to Ifrane, a village with a cool climate and famous for its white lion statue. During World War II, Ifrane was used as a camp for soldiers.

Afterward, you will travel to Ziz Valley, which has beautiful views of the desert and palm groves. The day ends in the Merzouga Desert, where you will ride camels to travel through the dunes of Erg Chebbi. You will arrive at a camp with activities like Berber music and campfires.

Day 4: Merzouga desert to Boumalne Dades via Tinghir

We’re on day 4 of our 5-day Morocco tour through the desert from Fes to Marrakech. Today, we’re going to a lovely place called Boumalne Dades, but on the way, we’re stopping at a cool market called Rissani Souk. They have a special festival there for donkeys on market days! Rissani used to be an important place for people traveling on caravans from Mauritania and Southern Mali to rest during their long journeys. 

Then, we’re checking out a pretty irrigation system called the Fezna system, which uses wells and canals to water the fields. After that, we’re going to see the amazing Todgha Gorges. They’re tall canyons with water flowing inside, and people come here for outdoor activities and family fun. Finally, we’ll spend the night in Boumalne Dades at a hotel with a great view of the valley.

Day 5: Boumalne Dades to Marrakech via Ouarzazate

On the final day of the 5-day Morocco tour from Fes to Marrakech through the Merzouga desert, we start in the morning at Boumalne Dades. Our first stop is Kalaat Megouna, also known as the “Capital of Roses,” which has an annual festival celebrating roses and a lot of taxis painted pink. There’s a possibility to go shopping at one of the cooperatives in the area.

We then travel on towards the Atlas Studios in Ouarzazate, which is a popular place for making movies like “Gladiator,” “Alexander,” “The Message,” and “Cleopatra.” We will also visit the impressive Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, a mud and straw structure that has been used as a filming location for “Game of Thrones,” “Lawrence of Arabia,” and others. We will climb stairs to explore the Kasbah and find some local artisans who paint beautiful souvenirs.

We will then traverse the High Atlas mountains, stopping by one of the Argan cooperatives, before finally reaching Marrakech and concluding our five-day trip.

5-Day Morocco desert tour from Fes to Marrakech Reviews

Best 5 Day Trip Ever!

Me and my boyfriend wanted to go to Morocco, and I asked my friends who had been there before for help. They gave me Youssef's contact info, and I told him what we wanted to do. He organized everything quickly. When we got to Fes, Hassan greeted us warmly, and we got along great. We had fun telling jokes, laughing and learned a lot about Morocco's culture. Our trip to the desert was amazing. The camels, camp, and food were all excellent. Ahmed, the guide, took great photos of us on the camels. The Riad in Boumalne Dades was luxurious and had great views. We highly recommend the 5-day trip from Fes to Marrakech through the desert.

Best Morocco Attractions in Only 5 days!

We had an amazing 5-day trip with Touring in Morocco. Ahmed was our fantastic guide who showed us around and taught us about Morocco's fascinating history and culture. We explored places like Marrakech, the Atlas Mountains, the Sahara Desert, Fes, Chefchaouen, and Tangier. We had lots of fun riding camels, listening to Berber music, and enjoying campfire dinners under the stars. The trip was well-organized, and we had great accommodations and food. We highly recommend taking this trip if you want an authentic Moroccan adventure. It left us with beautiful memories and an appreciation for Morocco's diversity and beauty.

Merzouga is Lovely!

I'm so thankful to Hamid and Youssef for organizing an amazing 5-day trip. It helped us relax and we got to explore a beautiful country. It was the most special experience of my life and it will stay with me forever. The places we visited were great and we had fun together. Spending a night in the desert was a unique experience. We met kind people who treated us like family. It offered more than I thought it would. Morocco will always be important to me. I really recommend the Fes to Marrakech trip.
