There are plenty of mosques and palaces to visit, but be aware that only Muslims can enter mosques in Morocco.

Today you will leave the city of Fes and the north of Morocco and travel south to the Sahara Desert.

First you will pass Ifrane, the 3rd cleanest city in the world, home of the best university in Morocco, Al Akhawayn, and city known as “the Switzerland of Morocco”. Through the cedar forest and a national park keep your eyes open for a chance to see Barbary apes (Macaque) and Berber horses. You will pass by beautiful pastures and nomad houses that give way to increasingly high mountain peaks and deep valleys. You will come upon Midelt and its vast collection of fossils at lunch time and then continue on through the Atlas Mountains. Travelling along the Ziz Valley you will see the Tafilalt Oasis which is the largest palm grove in Morocco before heading into the flatter and stonier plaines leading up to the desert.

We will have a stop at the Berber co-operative where you can see and buy authentic Berber handmade rugs, kilims and carpets. The afternoon can be spent exploring the Gorge, walking through the Palmerie or trying our optional activity of rock climbing. The charm of Todra lies in its changing colours as the sun slowly moves from east to west.

We bid a fond farewell to Todra this morning and make our way to Ait Benhaddou, via Ouazazate.

On a hill along the Ouarzazate River we find Aït Benhaddou, a UNESCO World Heritage site, that boasts great examples of Kasbahs, some of which remain inhabited.
