Atlas Mountains and Three Valleys: Private Guided Day Trip from Marrakech

The rugged Atlas Mountains and the golden sands of the Sahara Desert lie several hours south of Marrakech. This overnight tour lets you explore further than a day trip—stop along the way to visit Ait Ben Haddou, Ouarzazate, and the Atlas Film Studios, enjoy sunrise and sunset camel treks through the desert, and spend the night at a traditional Berber camp, with dinner included.

What to Expect

Day 1: Marrakech, Kasbah Ait-Benhaddou, Ouarzazate, Agdez-Valley, Zagora

The journey begins inside a modern air- 4×4, we will head towards the Atlas Mountains. Our first port of call is at the Kasbah in Ait Ben Haddou.

This walled city actually is home to around six Kasbahs and you’ll be amazed at the ancient feel of the place. After our stop off at the Kasbah, we will head to the city of Ouarzazate. Here you can witness the place where many Hollywood blockbuster films were shot. The Living Daylights, Gladiator, and Lawrence of Arabia, among others, have all seen the clapperboard in this city.

We also stop off at the Atlas Film Studios. There is a 3.00 euro entrance fee to the studios, which has not been included in the price. Entry to the studios is at your own discretion.

The afternoon is when we make our way through the Draa Valley. You will see a beautiful oasis and a stunning landscape that will have you taking photographs at regular points. At the end of this day, we will meet up with our camels and ride to the desert Berber camp.

The overnight stay in the Berber tents will include a sumptuous evening meal and breakfast in the morning.
