Dades and Todra Gorges Excursion : This is a one day trip to Dades and Todra Gorges via the Skoura Oasis and the valley of the roses (also known as the valley of a thousand kasbahs) along the river.
Departure from Ouarzazate towards Skoura Oasis via an off road route to visit several kasbahs, some of which are sadly in a state of disrepair but idyllically placed amongst palm trees. Once back on the main road, we drive through the Valley of Roses with a stop in Kela’a M’gouna to see and sample the locally-produced rose cosmetics. The best month to see the roses is early May before the three-day Rose Festival.
An off-road route will lead us away from the valley of roses. Winding through villages and a river, this road allows fora scenic view of the astounding rock formations and colors of the area. We will stop on the way here to have a cup of tea with Berber nomads in their caves while lunch will be served in the Dades Gorges.
