Itinerary of the 1-day excursion from Marrakech to Ait ben haddou

Our one-day tour from Marrakech to Ait Ben Haddou takes you through the High Atlas Mountains and across the famed ‘Tizi N Tichka pass,’ which is 2,260 meters high and the highest in Africa. You’ll witness Berber communities on the slopes along the journey, which are sometimes indistinguishable from the mountains itself.

The terrain changes dramatically as you approach the opposite side of the mountains, turning semi-arid and desert. The Kasbah structure has towers in each dwelling and is ornamented with grilled windows and basic colored walls.

These ancient dwellings are composed of adobe, which is ideal for the southern environment.
After seeing the beautiful valleys, you’ll arrive to the traditional Ksar of Ait Ben Haddou, which is potentially a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Because of the great films that were filmed there, such as “Game of Thrones (2013)”, “The Jewel of the Nile (1985)”, “Lawrence of Arabia (1962)”, “The Kingdom of Heaven”, “The Mom”, “Alexander the Great (2004)”, “Babel (2006)”, “Gladiator (200)”…

You will have a panoramic tour with your expert guide while exploring this wonderful walled town made with adobe and stones.

Observe diverse perspectives, take in breathtaking scenery as far as the eye can see, and marvel at the remarkable color contrast. Eating in this beautiful setting will also be enjoyable.
