What to expect

This day trip takes you from Marrakech to Ait Ben Haddou right across the chain of the High Atlas Mountains and over the famous 'Tizi N'Tichka' that is 2,260 meters high above sea level. All along the road, you can see the Berber villages perched on the side of the mountains, sometimes hardly distinguishable from the mountains themselves. As you reach the far side of the mountains the landscape changes dramatically, becoming semi-arid and desert-like. Here is the Kasbah architecture with turrets on all the buildings, adorned with grilled windows and soft peach colored walls. These traditional houses are made of adobe, highly suitable for the climatic conditions of the south.

Following your journey through the beautiful valleys, you will arrive at the ancient Ksar of Ait Ben Haddou, which is a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site. World-renowned as the Moroccan Hollywood because of the famous films which have been shot there, including the Lawrence of Arabia, The Jewel Of The Nile, Kingdom of Heaven, The Mommy, Alexander the Great, Babel, Gladiator, and Game of Thrones. Discovering this amazing fortified village built from adobe, stones, you will enjoy a scenic walk with your professional guide as you enjoy the view of the landscapes as far as the eye can see and admire an incredible contrast between colors.
