From Fez to Erg Chigaga

This trip takes you off the beaten path along the Draa Valley and into the Sahara Desert near M’hamid into the dunes of Erg Chigaga and Erg Lihoudi, south of Zagora.

This region of the Sahara is much more stark and rocky when compared to our other Sahara Desert itinerary, which has optional upgrades for luxury available and is one day longer.

Today, you will be picked up in the morning in Fez.

From there, you will drive over the High Atlas Mountains and into the Draa Valley.

If it’s hot, you can relax in the shade of the gardens or take a dip in the pool.
