Morocco Sahara Desert Tours

Let’s kick things off with one of the most popular tours in Morocco. This Morocco Sahara desert tour takes you to the beautiful golden camp of Merzouga Erg Chebbi.

The stunning desert landscape is located in Morocco’s eastern Sahara. Famed for its massive sand dunes (which can reach a whopping 150 metres in height), the area is also home to a variety of wildlife and plants, making it a great place for nature lovers and adventure seekers alike.

Whether you’re looking for an unforgettable journey into the desert or just want to take some incredible photos of the huge dunes, this isn’t just your run of the mill Sahara tour; it’s pretty special.

Desert and Mountain Tour with Camel Ride

Did you know that Morocco’s desert was once the source of the world’s gold? Or that camels were domesticated around 3,500 years ago?! You’ll learn all this and more on a thrilling Agafay Desert adventure.

One of the most incredible Morocco desert tours, this offering sees you enjoy a laid back camel ride through the sand-filled Moroccan landscape. Along the way, you’ll be treated to a ride through plenty of Berber villages, as well as the majestic Kik Plateau and Amizmiz Valley.

As well as this, you’ll also be taken to a nearby village where you can enjoy traditional Moroccan tea and admire the views of the Atlas Mountains.

We’re not being dramatic when we say that Ouzoud Waterfalls is one of the most beautiful natural wonders in Morocco.

Mount Toubkal Trek

Mount Toubkal is the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco and a popular destination for travellers looking to explore the beauty of nature. With its stunning views and breathtaking landscapes, Mount Toubkal offers a variety of activities for visitors to enjoy.

From trekking and camping to rock climbing and mountain biking, there are plenty of things to do in the area – but the Mount Toubkal trek is, without a doubt, one of the best tours in Morocco. Whether you’re an experienced climber or a first-time hiker, this majestic mountain is sure to provide an unforgettable experience.

You’ve got the option between two or three day treks – we say opt for three if you’re less experienced, want to enjoy the beautiful environment, and are a little bit more worried about adjusting to the altitude. If you’re short on time and keen to summit as quickly as possible, the two day trek is better.

Day Trip to Chefchaouen and Akchour Waterfalls from Tangier


Looking for the best Morocco tours? Look no further than this one that takes you to Chefchaouen and Akchour Waterfalls.

These two natural wonders offer stunning views and an unforgettable experience. You can admire the beauty of the cascading waterfalls as you hike up the mountain or take a boat ride down the river.

There are also plenty of activities to do in the area, such as fishing, swimming, and exploring nearby caves. If you’re looking for adventure or relaxation, you must visit Chefchaouen and Akchour Waterfalls when in Morocco.

Morocco Tours: Practical Information

Camel Ride Sahara

What’s the best Morocco tour?

If you want to see the Sahara desert, then we reckon the best Morocco tour is the 3-Day Sahara Tour to Merzouga Erg Chebbi. Otherwise, a Mount Toubkal trek is an epic experience.

How many days do you need to see Morocco?

We’ll be real with you guys, it totally depends on what you want to see and do during your trip. You could opt to do a 7-day whistle-stop tour of all the different sites, but that barely scratches the surface of Morocco. We recommend a two week trip if time and budget allows.

How much do tours cost in Morocco?

In general, Morocco is fairly inexpensive – and this applies to tours, too. While it depends on exactly which tours you would like to book, we recommend using Get Your Guide to find the best deals.
