Departure at 9 am from Ouarzazate when driver picks you up at your hotel or riad.
On the way we pass the beautiful oasis of Skoura and see all the kasbahs situated among the palm trees.
Back on the main road we continue through the valley of the roses. At the village Kela’a Mgouna we stop for a berber tea and refreshments. This town is famous for its sea of pink Persian rose landscape and each year they celebrate their harvest with a joyous and fragrant Rose Festival, known locally as the Fête des Roses.
We continue the tour along the valley of thousands kasbahs. The landscape is scenic, through the red Atlas mountains, berber villages and green vallyes with palm groves and pink rose gardens. Each city and village has its red colored kasbah or ksar and a mosque. Colorful carpets are hanging from the windows.
We reach Dades Gorges for lunch, followed by a walk along the riverside. The Dades Gorge has amazing finger-formed stones and is separating the Atlas mountain from the Anti Atlas.
In the afternoon we drive through the Boumalne Dades valley and arrive back in Ouarzazate in the early evening.
