This special itinerary unfolds forward Draa Valley, situated in the southern part of Morocco, is a breathtaking oasis valley that stretches from the High Atlas Mountains to the Sahara Desert's edge. Renowned for its picturesque landscapes, palm groves, traditional mud-brick villages (ksars), and the meandering Draa River, the valley is often called the "Valley of a Thousand Kasbahs" due to its historic fortresses. Meanwhile, the Erg Chegaga, one of the Sahara Desert's two major sand seas in Morocco, stands out for its vast and undulating sand dunes, some reaching heights of up to 300 feet (90 meters). As a more remote and less frequented area compared to Erg Chebbi, Erg Chegaga offers a more authentic and secluded desert experience, making it an appealing destination for those seeking a unique and less-travelled adventure to the Anti-Atlas Mountains, a smaller yet equally captivating range that runs parallel to the Atlantic coast. Known for its arid landscapes, mineral wealth, and unique features like the Ameln Valley, the Anti-Atlas offers a stark contrast to the verdant valleys of its northern counterpart. The region's geological formations and ancient history contribute to its allure, attracting those with an appreciation for off-the-beaten-path exploration. Moving westward, the Atlantic Coast unfolds a different facet of Morocco's beauty, stretching from Aglou beach to Essaouira. This coastal stretch is characterized by its long sandy beaches and a modern marina that complements the natural scenery. Fishing, an economic cornerstone for many coastal towns, is vividly represented by the traditional blue boats lining the shores.
