Embark on a captivating journey from Fes, venturing through diverse landscapes and cultural encounters.

Our adventure begins with a scenic drive through the cedar forest, encountering the playful monkeys of Ifrane National Park. Crossing the Middle Atlas, we witness the changing scenery until we reach Erfoud, where a luxurious 4-star hotel awaits our evening in half-board accommodations.

Exploring the geology around Erfoud, we journey into the distant past on a special field trip, collecting fossils and experiencing a camel ride at sunset amidst the Erg Chebbi sand dunes. Nights are spent in a desert camp, where we delve into astronomy and desert lore.

Exploring the fascinating landscapes of south Erg Chebbi, we visit old mines and meet communities with rich histories. Evenings are filled with Gnaoua music and discussions on astronomy in North African cultures.

We delve into the history of Tafilalet Sijilmassa, explore bustling souks, and gaze at the stars through telescopes. Nights spent under the desert sky lead us back to Fes, where we reflect on our enriching journey.
