Fes To Marrakech 4 Days Desert Tours

The best way to travel south and then west in Morocco is to relish a 4-Day Desert Tour From Fes To Marrakesh. Fes is the undisputed cultural capital of Morocco. Ancient and yet modern, home to dynasties, sultans, and kings, Fes is the heart of artisanal goods and Moroccan handicrafts. Housing the world’s older university and one of the most intricate and fascinating medina’s within the world (walled city), Fes is on every tour of Morocco. Best to spend a minimum of 2 nights here to be sure you’ll see all that it has the offer.

Once you leave Fes on your 4 days tour from Fes to Marrakesh, however, you will start to visualize a changing landscape that will hold your rapt attention all the way south of the desert. Of course, the distance from Fes to the Sahara is great, and the driving takes about 7 hrs. However, it is one of the most amazing driving you can take. You can spend the day seeing every terrain and climate in an amazing country. First, you will pass through Ifrane, the Switzerland of Morocco, stopping for a quick look around. Then it’s on through the cedar forests of the middle atlas mountains, and the pastures tended by nomads. Stop into Midelt around midday for a delicious lunch of lake trout, and then you will drive through the amazing Ziz valley as you travel closer and closer to the desert.
