Desert Break

Uncover the untainted beauty of the Moroccan Desert

The south of Morocco is the gate that leads to Sahara desert. In the middle of these stretches of sand, discover a world of dunes, sunshine and tranquility. Venture out there and experience the lifestyle of the nomadic tribes of the Sahara on your own.

Marrakech and Agadir both lead to Sahara, and so is Fez. From the imperial city, cross the Talghemt pass. On the way to the desert, the land is covered with oases: it is the Tafilalet, a transitional region where the greens of the vegetation almost melt with the ochre of the sands. Following the trail of the old caravans, you reach Rissani, the cradle of the ancient Alaouite dynasty. You've juste arrived to the desert : dunes with their soft curves shaped by the Saharan wind "The Chergui".

Go on an excursion riding a camel. Forget for a while the bustle of the cities and set up a bivouac in the middle of the sands in comfortable tents ! Join the majestic dunes of Merzouga: soak up in the magical atmosphere and indulge yourself with a sand bath in the middle of an eye-popping setting. Spend the night on the site: in the morning, the sun rises over the dunes forming a magical scene.

When you think it's over, there are still many great spots to sit back and gaze : the dune of Tinfou, exceptional since it is far from the desert! The oasis of Erfoud also, and the mysterious Errachidia.

On foot or on camelback, get ready to hike through the desert and disconnect yourself from everyday life !

Go on the best cruise experience.
