Day 1 Marrakech - Telouet - Ait Ben Haddou
Collect from your accommodation in Marrakech and set for a journey across the TIzi Tichka Pass the road that crosses the High Atlas Mountains. Once road called the salt road where slaves and other commodities including salt where carried along the Atlas. It is a dramatic drive with very breathtaking views of the snow coated peak mountains. Visit 2 extraordinary Kasbahs (old dwellings) Telouet and UNESCO protected Ait Ben Haddou. Get yourself immerse in the history of sultans and their wives.

Day 2 Ait Ben haddou - Ouarzazate - Agdz - Zagora
Today journey set us across windy barren rock area where we trust our driver skills into the picturesque Draa Valley. This longest valley of Morocco offers some stunning views of the palm date trees and many small fields lined along the river valley so important as food chain for the local people living in the mud homes. We will be passing many of these small villages where we see women dress in the traditional clothes and life seems to stay still.

Day 3 Zagora - M'hamid - Erg Chigaga
Today set for the desert adventure. We follow the valley to the village of M'hamid. The valley will be appearing and dissapearing as we travel to desert. Some first sand dunes can be seen from the road. We stop in small Berber town Tamengroute famous for beautiful clay potter and underground Kasbah. Upon reaching M'hamid we set into the road to nowhere. Drive off road about 60km via desert plains to the fine apricot colored sand dunes of Erg Chigaga. Here set for camel trek across this stunning region spreading over 40km .
Special dinner with local music entertainment to welcome the New Year

Day 4 Erg Chigaga - Foum Zquid - Marrakech
After breakfast and welcoming the sun of the New Year we set on our journey back. We'll travel another off road to Foum Zquid passing the dried salt lake bed. Then following the Anti Atlas of weirdly shaped mountains to the High Atlas we reach Marrakech late afternoon, drop off at your hotel.
