An authentic adventure where the vastness of the desert is a sight to behold. This is a challenge you won't soon forget.

Give in to this extraordinary, enchanting challenge. An exhilarating adventure through 100 km of the largest hot desert in the world begins upon your arrival at Ouarzazate. During the eight-day trek, you'll discover a mysterious and unusual region with scattered palm groves and golden dunes as far as the eye can see. Your voyage will take you to Marrakesh, also known as the "Pearl of the South" in French, a thousand-year-old city that majestically sits at the foot of the Atlas Mountains. Visiting its colourful medina is simply unforgettable.
