4 Days Trip from Marrakech to the Sahara Desert incl. Hiking in Dades

This tour is going to show you two unique sides of Morocco. The rich culture of the Berbers in the mountains and the stunning Sahara Desert of Merzouga. Especially the hiking trip is something less touristic and still "small". It's one of our secret favorite places, which we would love to show to the people. The Sahara Desert, sand as far as you can watch, is something extremely visited that Morocco should see. Sleeping under the stars and the Mikly Way is something you probably never saw in your life before.

So, we do not want to only transport you to touristic places, but we do care about every guest separately. In every accomodation you are going to feel like home. You are going to taste the real moroccan cuisine and meet the very friendly berber population.
