Step by Step

Don't miss this day trip to an authentic place of fantasy and history: Ouarzazate. From Marrakech, less than 200 kilometres from this southern city, stunning views of the Atlas Mountains, the majestic Kasbahs and the city of Ait Ben Haddou, among other interesting places, await you.

You will drive through Tizi n'Tichka, the highest road pass in North Africa, while enjoying the desert landscape. You will also witness some of the filming areas of movies such as Gladiator, Star Wars or Alexander the Great. The experience includes an expert guide and return transport.

Ouarzazate is also known as the gateway to the desert and its history includes Berbers, African traders and French settlers who passed through this region. It is one of Morocco's most visited tourist destinations, not least because of its film studios and fortifications such as the Kasbah Taourirt.

Situated in a strategic location overlooking the Sahara desert, Ouarzazate was a transit point for a multitude of caravans of traders coming from the south to Europe. On the other hand, there is Ait Ben Haddou, one of Morocco's best-known and best-preserved ksar, or castles, of Berber origin and full of narrow streets and labyrinthine passages.

During your adventure in Ouarzazate, at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, you will see high mountain landscapes, snow-capped peaks in the distance, plains, palm oases, dunes, lakes and much more.
