Discover southern Morocco’s most iconic sites on a 9-night grand tour from Marrakech into rugged mountains, rippling dunes and an extraordinary desert culture. Explore ancient tombs and vibrant souks, hike into isolated alpine villages and slip through the ruined streets of fortified kasbahs. Pass rustling palm groves and set out across the stark Saharan landscape: sleep in a nomadic encampment, climb towering dunes and watch the sun set into the sand.
