After breakfast, we will visit Chefchaouen, the blue painted city by Jewish community that painted walls, floors, steps as a religious practise to represent the colour of the sky and connect the city to heaven and God. This city does not only look EXACTLY the way it does in the pictures, but the atmosphere here is calmer compared to bigger places like, say, Marrakech We will visit, its monuments, experience the sounds and smells of the medina, and enjoy sample the delicious local specialities at a café in the Plaza Uta el-Hammam optional Lunch (extra).

After breakfast it’s an absolute must to enjoy a guided tour of Fez. The tour will take us to the Bab Boujeloud (The Blue Gate), best characterized as a sea of rooftops embellished with minarets and domes. We continue by visiting the Kairaouiyne Mosque. This Mosque is the oldest in the world and functioned as the first University in Morocco. The medina in Fez is a particular place. An altogether more earthy and secular surprise awaits us when we suddenly duck off the street and enter a shop selling leather goods. As much as we may fear we are about to be subject to a hard sell. This isn’t the reason for entering: you pass through the shop and out onto a terrace at the back, overlooking the tannery. It is one of the best photo opportunities in Fez, with the multitude of vats and dyes contrasting with whitewashed walls all around, draped in drying hides. In the afternoon, we visit a pottery factory, explore the Royal Palace and many interesting quarters including the Mullay Abdallah Quarter, the Mellah (Jewish Quarter) and the Ville Nouvelle (The New Quarter). We will have the opportunity also to admire Scarf making with Agave skills. We will then return to our hotel in Fez for dinner.

After refreshing ourselves in the camp we mount the camels through the sand dunes and make a stop to admire the sunset in the desert. We later have a typical dinner followed by folk singing around a campfire under an array of stars.


We wake up early not to miss sunrise and then have a buffet breakfast. Time to take the 4x4s again to join the coach in Erfoud from where we start our drive to Ourzazate with a stop in Tinghir visiting the magnificent Todgha canyons with rocks that reach the altitude of 250 meters.

These falls are located approximately 90 miles (150 kilometers) northeast of the city, close to the Atlas Mountains village of Tanaghmeilt and take their name from the ‘grinding grain’. Upon arrival you will see the river plunge 300 feet (100 meters) into a complex network of waterfalls that cascade one into another through 3 major and several minor drops.
