Day 1: Arrival in Marrakech (Dinner Included)
Upon arrival, enjoy a private transfer to the hotel, check-in and relax. Enjoy dinner and an overnight stay at the Riad Andalouse.

Day 2: Marrakech - Asni - Kik Plateau - Takerkoust Lake (Breakfast and Lunch Included)
After breakfast, enjoy an exceptional tour to the High Atlas Plateau and Lake Takerkoust – 70km from Marrakech. First, take the tarmac road to leave the Marrakech plains. Tiny villages, olive plantations and green vegetation will lead to the Ghighaya Valley. As you move through remarkable green lands, discover the picturesque Berber village of Sidi Fares, surrounded by olive, fig, walnut trees, quince, prune, apple & almond plantations. At an altitude of 1800m, the view is absolutely splendid, and in the winter months the snow-capped backdrop of the Atlas summits can be seen. Descend towards the Asni Valley and the town of Moulay Brahim, continuing along the Kik Plateau, dominated by the High Atlas chain.

With a magnificent panorama of the Mount Toubkal massif, the Kik Plateau is situated overlooking Asni. This area will help you understand the precarious conditions in which the Moroccan farming community live in this region. Enjoy a refreshment stop at ‘Chez Omar’ and meet a family who, with great care, will share their traditional mint tea preparation ceremony with you. Then, move on to the great Lake Takerkoust. This is a haven of natural surroundings, where visitors can try out water sports. A traditional lunch is included here. Enjoy a day by the Takerkoust Lake, which promises an escape from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and its stifling summer heat. Return to Marrakech in the late afternoon and enjoy an overnight stay at the Riad Andalouse.
Day 3: Marrakech - Imi N'lfri - Lake Bin El Ouidane - Ouzoud (Breakfast and Dinner Included)
Enjoy breakfast at the riad and leave Marrakech at 8.30 am to head to the famous Ouzoud Waterfalls, the Bin El Ouidane Lake and Beni-Mellal. Your driver will help you to discover the magic of the Atlas, passing by the Al Haouz plains & Tanante hills. The first stop will be at a natural bridge in Imi N’lfri, where a panoramic view over the Tisslit Valley can be seen. A natural arch serves as a bridge over Assif Tisslit. Thanks to its landscape, this site is a geomorphological curiosity, unique to Morocco, where many birds find refuge.

Continue to the famous Ouzoud Waterfalls, where you can mingle with the Magot monkeys, amidst the olive plantations. Just before commencing the stairs, you’ll have your first glimpse of the waterfalls -  a perfect place to take pictures. Take your time to savour a tasty lunch here. Then, head on to Bin El Ouidane. Enjoy a relaxing moment by a lake, in the central Atlas, between the river El Abid and the Assif Ahanesal, where the crystal waters reflect Nature’s beauty. Enjoy dinner and an overnight stay at the Hotel Jnane Ain Asserdoune.

Day 4: Beni-Mellal - Ayoun Oum Rabia - Azrou - Ifrane (Breakfast and Dinner Included)
After breakfast at the hotel, leave Beni-Mellal for a journey towards Azrou and Ifrane, and drive through a pleasant landscape at the foot of the mountain of of the Midle Atlas, crossed by the small rivers. Nature lovers will enjoy the views of the surrounding mountains and discover numerous caves and chasms which are the delight of speleologists and archaeologists. Take a refreshment stop at a terrace overlooking the Lake lhansali, before arriving to Oum Rabia, one of Morocco’s most dramatic waterfalls, and probably one of the nation’s lesser-visited cascades. The river gushes through the local settlement, passing wooden riverside homes and restaurants. Smaller falls along the river add to the beauty. Small springs and cascades flow over the reddish-brown rocks, with small green plants presenting a contrast to the colors of the rocks and water. Enjoy a fresh tajine with vegetables here (not included).

Next, continue through Khenifra National Park, sometimes known as Aguelmame Azigza National Park. Home to diverse flora and fauna, it is especially known for its two large and beautiful lakes: Lake Aguelmame Sidi Ali and Lake Aguelmame Azgza. The park attracts relatively few local visitors. The last stop today in Azrou, a charming city that's tucked into the hills of the Middle Atlas Mountains. At nearly 3,940 feet (1,200 meters) elevation, it’s a great place to escape the heat. Enjoy a short break and walk here to explore the nearby Atlas Cedar Forest, home to the Barbary macaque. Though their population numbers may be low, you’ll easily spot a few apes along the side of the road. Arrive in the Bensmin Valley and check-in to your hotel. Dinner and overnight stay at the Rise in Valley Hotel.
Day 5: Ifrane - Imouzzer Kander - Fes - Sefrou (Breakfast and Lunch Included)
Today we will head away from the peace of the landscape in Ifrane to the hustle and bustle of Fes. Fes is the perfect place for a Moroccon break. A UNESCO World Heritage site and one of Morocco’s most traveled Imperial cities, Fes is sure to amaze. Moroccan travelers visit Fes to discover Fassis heritage historical treasures and haute cuisine. You will begin your guided tour of the souks and handicraft traditions in the medina, Fès El Bali. Every souk is reflected in the value of the items sold. The makers and sellers are grouped together according to the products that they offer and every type of craft has its own street or part of the street which is centred on the kissaria. Explore the royal palace and many interesting quarters including the Mellah (Jewish Quarter).

For lunch you will eat within the medina at one of the fine Moroccan palace-restaurants that serves an extravaganza of mezze dishes, which is common among Fassis traditions. After lunch, we leave Fes for Sefrou. Stop in Bhalil, a curious village that should be visited to witness the houses built into the picturesque mountainside and picked out in pastel hues of pink, yellow and blue. The cave dwellings date back to the 4th century and for hundreds of years have been inhabited by shepherds and used as storage spaces for sheep and cattle. Enjoy a cap of tea with Kassem and his family.

Next, enjoy panorama stops on the ramparts and bridges of Sefrou. End your journey with a trip to Ifrane. Take a break in Lake Dayet Aoua, a big lake that offers a variety of activities and scenic views of the towering mountains. The crisp, clear waters enchantingly reflect scenes from around the water. Whether you hop in a paddle boat, ride around the lake on horseback, or stroll alongside the body of water, you’re sure to have nice refreshment. Take some bread to feed the friendly ducks too! Overnight stay at the Rise in Valley Hotel.

Day 6: Ifrane - Midelt - Rich - Imilchil - Tinghir (Breakfast and Dinner Included)
After breakfast in the hotel, leave Ifrane for Midelt, Imilchil and Tinghir During this particular journey, you’ll experience glimpses of both the Middle Atlas and Higher Atlas ranges. Carry the right camera to get great photos today! After spending a couple days between the fruitful Eden of Ifrane and the frantic city of Fes, we will make our way to the arid back-land over winding roads though Midelt, the landscape offers some breathtaking views, especially of the “Jbel Ayachi”, which seems to rise out of nowhere. Up the road you will come across an active Berber community, where you will be welcomed into a bedouin tent by the local nomads.

It’s not every day they get a chance to interact with foreigners, and their shyness will tell you that not many people come to visit them on a regular basis. Later on, continue your drive by crossing the Tizi N’Talghomt Pass (1907m) while enjoying the panoramic views. You will also cross Ziz Gorge and the tunnel. Near Errachidia, you will see the Lake Hassan Al-Dakhil which has turquoise blue water. Continue your drive to Tinghir and stop for a panoramic view of the Elkhorbat palmgroves along the Tinjdad River. Arrive in Tinghir and check-in to your hotel. Dinner and overnight stay at the Kasbah Tombouctou.
Day 7: Tinghir - Boumalne Dades - Ouarazazate - Ait benhaddou - Marrakech (Breakfast and Lunch Included)
After breakfast at the hotel, leave Tinghir for Ouarzazate and Marrakech. Today we will discover the road of a thousand Kasbahs and enjoy a stunning desert landscape through the Dades Valley between the high Atlas and Anti-Atlas mountain range, in Morocco. The drive is spectacular, with hundreds of Kasbahs lining the route alongside berber villages, palm groves, and the expansive Jebel Sarhro lunar-scape to the south. The Dades Valley has a wild landscape, with snow on one side and semi-desert on the other - its savage grandeur and unearthly silence can be equalled only by the Grand Canyon.

The first stop is the Kalaat M'gouna. Kalaat M’gouna means Valley of the Roses and the city itself is named after the nearby Mount M'gouna. The surrounding city is literally covered in roses. A pink carpet as far as the eye can see dots the otherwise brown landscape. Next stop is Ouarzazate. Once upon a time, Ouarzazate, was the ideal location for trading between the High Atlas region and the Sahara Desert. People from the Atlas, Draa and Dades Valley would meet in the Taourirt Kasbah to trade goods and news. Today, filmmakers and crews alike have flocked here in recent years to film blockbusters such as Game of Thrones, Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Body of Lies, The Mummy, Babel, Spy Game and many other movies in and around this desert city.

Continue to Ait Benhaddou and take a lunch break here (included). Then, head for a short walk in the Ounila Valley, where you can visit the Kasbah Ait Benhaddou. This Kasbah is mainly a collective grouping of dwellings. Inside the defensive walls, which are reinforced by angle towers and pierced with a baffle gate, houses crowd together - some modest, others resembling small urban castles with their high angle towers and upper sections decorated with motifs in clay brick. The last step during this tour continues through the route of Morocco’s old Salt caravan road to the salt mines and the former palace of the Glaoui family that owned them. Return to Marrakech at the end of the tour. Check-in to your hotel and enjoy an overnight stay at the Riad Andalouse.

Day 8: Departure from Marrakech (Breakfast Included)
Following breakfast, check-out and enjoy a transfer to the airport for your return flight home.
