1 Day Excursions to Errachidia

1 day trip to Errachidia


1. Early Morning Departure:

Start your day early by taking a private car or hiring a driver to Errachidia. The journey from Casablanca to Errachidia takes around 6-7 hours, so plan accordingly to make the most of your day.

2. Midelt:

As you drive towards Errachidia, you’ll pass through the town of Midelt, nestled in the Middle Atlas Mountains. Take a break and explore the town, known for its apple orchards and beautiful landscapes. You can also stop at a local cafe or restaurant for a quick bite.

3. Ziz Valley:

Continue your journey towards Errachidia and make sure to drive through the picturesque Ziz Valley. This stunning valley is characterized by lush palm groves, deep gorges, and the flowing Ziz River. Take some time to appreciate the natural beauty and capture some memorable photos.

4. Errachidia:

Arrive in Errachidia in the afternoon and start exploring the town. Although Errachidia is a relatively small city, it serves as a gateway to the Sahara Desert, making it an interesting stopover. Visit the local market, stroll through the streets, and soak in the local atmosphere.

5. Erfoud:

If time allows, consider extending your trip to the nearby town of Erfoud, famous for its fossil industry. You can visit a fossil museum or shop for unique fossilized artifacts. Erfoud is also known for its beautiful desert landscapes, so take a moment to enjoy the surroundings.

6. Sunset in the Desert:

As the day nears its end, head towards the Sahara Desert, located a short distance from Errachidia. If you have enough time, you can book a sunset camel ride or a 4×4 desert tour to experience the magic of the desert dunes as the sun sets over the horizon.

7. Return to Casablanca:

After sunset, begin your return journey to Casablanca. It’s advisable to have a driver or arrange transportation for a comfortable and safe trip back.

Please note that this itinerary involves a significant amount of driving, and you won’t have much time for extensive exploration in Errachidia or the Sahara Desert. However, it provides an opportunity to get a glimpse of the desert landscapes and experience the unique atmosphere of this region. If possible, it’s recommended to allocate more time for a trip to Errachidia and the Sahara Desert to fully immerse yourself in the experience.
