      Stop At: Agafay, Agafay, Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region

      About 20 km from Marrakech, the desert of Agafay is the big unknown tourist interest.
      A large arid region with white ripples over hundreds of hectares, which could be taken for sand dunes but which are in fact a succession of whitish hills reminding our distant and inaccessible Erg. An amazing sight at the gates of the red city. On the way, the massif of the High Atlas stands out as a backdrop while we may meet here or there a muleteer or a small oasis where some families continue to occupy this land austere but so beautiful.

      Duration: 30 minutes
