On the first day of our 5-day tour from Fes to Marrakech, we will pick you up from your Riad and begin our journey through the Middle Atlas Mountains and tourist towns. Our first stop will be in Ifrane, known as the Switzerland of Morocco due to its alpine climate and European style. Ifrane is also home to ski stations and a large national park and is known as the second cleanest town in the world. From there, we will drive to the Cedar Forest near Azrou, a Berber village and the oldest and largest forest in the country. There, you can enjoy walking around the forest and seeing the tall Cedar trees and local monkeys.

After visiting the Cedar Forest, we will continue on to Midelt, one of the industrial centers in Morocco known for its apple production and fossils.

On the second day of our 5-day tour from Fes to Marrakech, we will spend the day in the small village of Merzouga, surrounded by golden dunes. There are many desert activities to enjoy in Merzouga, and today you will have the chance to experience most of them. Firstly, you will visit the Sahrij Lake in the west of Merzouga, which attracts flamingos, desert sparrows, and other birds during the spring. You will then visit the Khamlia village, also known as the Gnawa village, where you will meet the Grnawa musical group and watch them play music.
