A Scenic Drive to Ben Barka

A professional driver/guide will share interesting facts about all you see throughout your comfortable drive in an air-conditioned vehicle with WiFi access. Visit Ben Barka, a small village near the hilly countryside of Toufliht, where you can stretch your legs and explore the area before crossing the Tizi n'Tichka pass.

Discover the Atlas Mountains & Ait Benhaddou

The Tizi n'Tichka pass is a gateway to the Sahara Desert, with skyscraping Atlas mountain peaks paradoxically capped with snow despite the country’s extreme temperatures. Head to Ouarzazate, where all the Game of Thrones fans will be thrilled to visit the Atlas Film Studios, the largest film studio in the world, famously featured in this TV series. Spend some time wandering around on your own and later savor delicious Moroccan food at one of the best restaurants in the area at your own expense. Your trip ends at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kasbah Ait Benhaddou, a great example of Moroccan earthen clay architecture dating back to the 11th century. Hop back in your comfortable air-conditioned vehicle as you take home memories of this incredible experience.
