Leaving the desert, we move on to Todra Gorge. This 1000ft gorge is hemmed in on all sides by vertical limestone cliffs and is called Morocco’s Grand Canyon.
There’s time to explore the gorge today, from its plunging depths to dizzying heights. The charm of Todra lies in its changing colors as the sun slowly moves from east to west. We move onto the stunning Dades for the night.
After breakfast, we will drive through the villages of this charming area, passing fields cultivated by the Berber women, with the peaks of the High Atlas as a fitting backdrop.
Our journey will then continue toward Ouarzazate, going off-road along the piste to visit Berber nomads in their caves and partake in a glass of tea with them. From here, we will continue through the Valley of the Roses, famous for its Rose Festival in May, and past the kasbahs of Skoura.

You will have the chance to explore some of the ruined buildings and climb to the top of the hill where the Agadir (grain store) offers spectacular views down over the village and the surrounding countryside.
You can also enter one of the houses and share a glass of mint tea with some of the residents to gain a better understanding of how they live their lives. In the afternoon you’ll drive north across the High Atlas mountains.
The road, completed by the Foreign Legion in 1936, winds up over the Tizi-n-Tichka pass (2260m) and offers stunning views of the mountains before descending past Berber villages to the plain surrounding Marrakech.
Even today, the name Marrakech conjures up images of scenes from the Arabian Nights: alleyways, souks, stalls, and markets. This remarkable city, dating from the 11th century, never fails to satisfy the curiosity of adventurous travelers.
The graceful architecture of the renowned Koutoubia Minaret dominates the skyline.
Today we will try to benefit our time as much as we can, wander around Marrakech souks to get some souvenirs for friends…, then transfer to Marrakech Menara airport for your departure flight. End of our 14 days Morocco trip from Marrakech.
