Day 3

Marrakech - Ait Bougamez. An early morning departure takes you off into the High Atlas along the route for Fes. After a short drive we turn off south and arrive at the glorious waterfall of the Cascades D‘Ouzoud for lunch.

After taking some time to rest and enjoy our magnificent surroundings its time to hit the twisty mountain road past Azilal and reach the heart of the High Atlas – the valley of Ait Bougamez.

Ait Bougemez is a hidden gem, a valley close to Ighil Mgoun, the highest summit in Morocco apart from the Toubkal range. The area is popular for trekking, as there is a long, easy trek from the Tessaout Sources/ Tarkeddid plateau, which is reached from the Ait Bougmez valley. Exploring the valley is easily done on foot and it can be preferable to driving, as so many places still have poor roads. The centre of the region is the village of Tabant, and from here, in less than an hours walk, several small villages can be explored - Imelghas, Iskatafene, Ikhf-n-Ighir, Agouti, Ait Imi Iqballioun, Ifrane, and Arous. Three hours walk away is the village of Taghoulit. With incredibly striking scenery and off the beaten track location, Ait Bougmez is still unspoilt. Here you’ll spend the next three nights in a Kasbah, exploring the beautiful surrounding area.
Overnight: Ait Bougamez  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4

Today you can take a mule ride to the Dinosaur tracks at the head of the valley, the route winding through the fields of grain and the apple and almond orchards. After a picnic in the hills, return to the Kasbah via different route, stopping for a cup of tea in a berber house.
Overnight: Ait Bougamez  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5

If you're feeling energetic, a walk up to the pass of Tizi ait Imi is well rewarded with views of Jbel Mgoun and the southern peaks of the High Atlas, otherwise its possible to take a walk around the village, maybe see the feltmakers and carpet makers at work and have a picnic at the side of a stream watching the farmers in the fields. In the afternoon take a walk up to the World heritage site of Sidi Moussa - an ancient granary and fortification.
Overnight: Ait Bougamez  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6
Lake Bin Ouidane

Ait Bougamez - Marrakech. Descending from the mountains today, take the route past the lake of Bin Ouidane, where many richer Moroccans go for water sports, and then descend a sheer road down to the Orange farms of Beni mellal. Taking the road back to Marrakech. Spend the evening at leisure, perhaps wander around the souks, or enjoy a meal in one of the roof top restaurants overlooking Djemaa el Fna.
Overnight: Marrakech  |  Breakfast

Day 7

Marrakech - Essaouira. This morning journey Essaouira, about 2.5 hrs away from Marrakech. Essaouira is a quiet seaside town with a long beach, an interesting little medina with souks and a grand harbour and fortifications. It's the perfect place to relax either on the beach or in a cafe on the square, or just watching the fishing boats coming in and out of the harbour.

Essaouira has avoided becoming a tourist trap and maintains the original charm which made it a firm favourite with many legendary stars, including Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley and Orson Welles who filmed Othello in Essaouira.
Overnight: Essaouira  |  Breakfast

Day 8

Enjoy a lazy day at leisure in Essaouira. Perhaps take a camel ride along the beach, try a spot of wind surfing or simply laze about and soak up the sun.

Tonight why not try one of the many tasty restaurants in the medina, where seafood is the speciality
