Private Agafay Desert and Azzaden Valley Day Trip

Duration
7.5 hours
Languages
English, French, Spanish
On this exciting day trip, you’ll travel by 4×4 on an off-the-beaten-track Atlas circuit of scenic contrasts and experiences. From Marrakesh, your first adventure will be at Agafay, the closest desert to Marrakesh. A hilly barren landscape in the foothills of the Atlas, the Agafay Desert is a playground for quad bikers and buggy enthusiasts with a backdrop of often snow-capped peaks. Next you’ll pause for tea at Lake Takerkoust, a popular weekend recreational lake. Boating, swimming and sailing are popular activities here. From lake to mountains, we head higher into the Atlas to the regional Berber town of Amizmiz. If you visit on a Tuesday, you’ll witness one of the most traditional and exotic weekly markets in the Atlas mountains. Next we follow a little-used mountain road to the village of Marigha from where we head off-road for 6 km following the Azzaden Valley to Tassa Ouirgane village and Toubkal National Park. Lunch is a leisurely local affair, taken on the terrace of a Berber house, enjoying a home-cooked three-course meal of Moroccan salad, couscous with lamb or perhaps a tasty vegetable tagine, fresh seasonal fruits and tea. After lunch, you have time to discover Tassa Ouirgane village and gaze at the beautiful view of the Azzaden Valley and Takerkhort Wildlife Reserve, which dominate the horizon. There’s lots of opportunity for taking photos on this trip, so don’t forget your camera!
