Ouarzazate, getaway to the Sahara desert

Considered the movie capital of the country, Ouarzazate is the best city for an adventure trip in Morocco. Located a 3-hour drive from Marrakech, the city offers a great scenery between the Atlas mountain range and the Sahara desert nearby.

Ouarzazate is also a great starting point to explore the many wonders of the region starting with the Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou, a UNESCO heritage fortified village which is an absolute must-see in Morocco.

Heading north towards the High Atlas mountains, you will enter an area filled with oases and gorges offering breathtaking scenery and a wide range of tracks to discover some of the most beautiful natural places in Morocco: the Dades Valley, the Roses Valley and the Todra Gorges.

To experience the magical atmosphere of the Sahara desert, rent a car in Ouarzazate and take the road south to spend a night (or several) under a bivouac on the dune of Tinfou. An unforgettable adventure awaits you!
