Marrakech to Fes 4 Days Desert Tour:
The Atlas and the doors of the desert are the habitats of the two most influential ethnic groups in the country. Morocco is a place of magnificent landscapes, of endless culture, of great historical legacy, of traditions, of gastronomy and also of ethnic differences. This is the objective of the trip to Morocco of Far Lands, to know these two groups.
In the area of the Atlas, we will live with the Berbers, and we will pass through their villages following the tracks not traveled by tourism or the usual means of communication. This fact keeps them in conditions of purity and abandonment at the same time. Sleeping some night in their homes will be the best way to know their reality.
We will continue our way to the south, in the area of the desert and the Kasbah, where we will get in touch with the Tuaregs, the people with the penetrating gaze, the mystery of their legendary caravans. We will be with them in the middle of a landscape of palm groves and oases, in addition to their seas of dunes.
