Deep red sand, panoramic views, fiery sunsets, huge campfires and starry skies are just a few of the things that make this trek truly exceptional.
Within a single week you can achieve an incredible expedition immersing you in the beauty and solitude of the desert with golden dunes, mirages and mesmerising landscapes. Following in the footsteps of Berber tribes you'll witness breathtaking vistas throughout.
On a journey through bare fields and palm trees you'll cross some of the highest dunes in the region. A golden sunrise wakes you each day and the quiet of the desert instils a sense of calm in the serene desert which may be difficult to experience in our everyday surroundings.
If you are looking to step out of your comfort zone, enjoy delicious traditional Moroccan food and make lifelong friends around the campfire whilst on a challenging trek, then this is the trip for you!
