Day 1: Night and Half board (D)
Leave Marrakech, and follow a well-maintained road to the High Atlas Mountains. After about an hour, the road starts to wind its way along one of the most scenic roads in Morocco across a landscape of terraced wheat fields, cacti, waving palm trees and endless views. As the road begins to descend, the scenery changes drastically as suddenly as you enter a desert-like area. Soon, the imposing Kasbah Aït Benhaddou will loom up like a mirage. A kasbah is a kind of citadel, composed of high-walled buildings of clay mixed with straw; historically used to shelter to entire village communities. At the gate to the Kasbah a small entrance fee (about €1) will be required. At the top of the Kasbah, there is a fantastic view across the surrounding countryside and of the citadel itself giving you the sense of entering a medieval world with a warren of narrow lanes. After lunch, set-off on again and drive through the fertile valley to Dades Gorges. Encounter bright green palm valleys and rugged mountain peaks in all shapes and colours alternated by small traditional villages and breath-taking views. From here, there is another 40 minutes drive passing wonderful colorful rock formations. When the cliffs begin to get narrower enter a kind of gorge reaching your destination – a small, scenic mountain hotel. Moments later you will be greeted by the friendly owner.
