7 night Triangle – Marrakech, Desert Camp & Atlas mountains (with walks)
Relax at Les Deux Tours in the beautiful palm groves of Marrakech (10 minutes to the old city by free shuttle) before setting off into the Agafay Desert (30 minutes from Marrakech) to spend a night under canvas with the stars to light-up your evening. Breakfast at the camp followed by a camel ride or perhaps a demonstration of falconry! Head up into the Atlas Mountains, only a one-hour drive through spectacular scenery as you wind through the patchwork of Berber villages and farmers’ fields, often cut into the sides of jagged rock faces. Spend two or three nights at one of our recommended Atlas mountain hotels. Enjoy the stunning scenery by going for a guided walk with a local Berber guide – these can be whole or half day walks with a lunch at a suitable spot.
We recommend that if your flight arriving in Marrakech lands after dark (or doesn’t leave you time to drive an hour into the hills during daylight hours) that you stay in Marrakech first, rather than the other way around. If you do arrive earlier in the day then this itinerary can be reversed but keeping the night in the desert in the middle of your itinerary.
For this itinerary, we would recommend a reliable and safe chauffeur driven car or van.
If you have an extra couple of nights, why not add on a couple of days on the coast in Essaouira?
