Day 1: Arrive in Marrakech. Transfer to the hotel in the centre of the city.You can spend the afternoon visiting Marrakech.

Day 2: Marrakech - Faija. We take a scenic drive across the High Atlas Mountains to Ouarzazate and then Zagora. It takes almost 8 hours driving, passing along date-palm oases, Berber villages, and incredible landscapes. In Zagora we leave the minibus and take a more appropriate vehicle that will take us to Faija. There we meet the camels and their cameleers.

Day 3: Faija - Camping . Today we start our trek. In the morning we load the camels and head to Hamada. We have good views of the Saghro Mountains, with little vegetation, and maybe some Bedouin nomads. After lunch in an oasis, we walk along dried riverbeds and arrive at the campsite at sunset. Walking time: 6h30

Day 4: Camping - Dunes of Chegaga. We climb to the Abbes pass, from where we can observe the vastness of the desert. Far away we can already spot the dunes of Chegaga. We get to them later in the afternoon. Walking time: 6h30

Day 5: Dunes of Chegaga - Dunes of Bougarne . After walking the multitude of small sand dunes of Chegaga, we continue towards M'hamid. We eat under the trees of Tamares, and in the evening we arrive at dunes of Bougarne, a site rarely frequented by the tourists. Walking time: 5h

Day 6: Dunes of Bougarne - Dunes of Oued Naam . We wake up early in order to contemplate the dawn on the dunes of Bougarne. The rest of the day we walk on a huge rocky plateau, and we reach the dunes of Oued Naam late in the afternoon. Walking time: 6h30

Day 7: Dunes of Oued Naam - Dunes of Mhamid - Marrakesh. This last stage of the trek takes place along beautiful desert landscapes, and an immense plateau of small dunes.
