From a Berber tent camp amidst the rolling dunes of the Western Sahara to the spectacular kasbah ruins of Morocco’s ancient kingdoms, our 8-day tour captures the beauty and magic of a route that calls from an age of kings and caravans.

Starting at the edge of the vast and desolate Saharah desert, our 350 km route follows the centuries old trade route along the sinuous Draa River, carving it’s way through ochre gorges and lush oases before turning north at the iconic kasbah of Ait Benhaddou, and winding through the tranquil Ounila Valley, finishing at the ancient ruins of the Kasbah Telouet.
