Excursion from Ouarzazate

From Ouarzazate

1 day
Dades gorges and the rose valley

Morning departure from Ouarzazate by the 4×4 car to Skoura oasis along a track to see all the Kasbahs, some sadly in a state of disrepair but idyllically placed amongst the palm trees. Once back on the main road, the route passes through the valley of roses with a stop in Kela’a M’gouna to have a berber tea. A track leads us through the rose valley, also known as the valley of a thousand kasbahs, to reach the Dades gorges for lunch, followed by a walk alongside the river. In the afternoon, we drive through the Boumalne Dades valley and arrive back in Ouarzazate at the end of the day.

Draa Valley, Zagora and Tinfou dunes

Morning departure by the 4×4 car from Ouarzazate to the Draa valley and Tinfou dunes crossing the Anti-Atlas mountains and the pass of Tizi-n-Tinfifite (1660m). We stop for a tea break at the village of Agdez. From here, we drive off-road along the Draa valley and the ancient road of caravans as far as Zagora and the dunes of Tinfou where you can enjoy a walk in the sand dunes and experience a short camel trek. Lunch will be served in Zagora. In the afternoon, the return to Ouarzazate is via the Draa valley and the ancient road of caravans. We reach Ouarzazate at the end of the day.

Ait Ben Haddou and Telouet Kasbahs

Morning departure is from Ouarzazate by the 4×4 car to Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah, the most famous Kasbah in Morocco and the subject of many post-cards. This Kasbah sets the scene for many films, such as ‘Alexander’ and ‘The Gladiator’. The itinerary continues along the Ounila valley to the kasbah of Telouet (which served as a palatial residence and the headquarters of the powerful Glaoui tribe). This is where lunch is scheduled, before returning to Ouarzazate over the High-Atlas and the mountain pass of Tizi-n-Tichka (2260m). We reach Ouarzazate by the end of the afternoon.
