How to get to the Sahara Desert from Fes?

Duration: Between 3 and 12 hours

The 463-kilometer journey from Fes to the Sahara Desert is a breathtaking expedition, showcasing ever-evolving landscapes and distinctive pit stops. Setting off from Fes, take the N13 highway towards Ifrane, famously dubbed the “Switzerland of Morocco” for its stunning resemblance. Continuing along this route, you’ll venture through the Azrou forest before reaching the enchanting Ziz Valley. The total duration of the trip is approximately 7 hours, excluding any optional stops you may wish to make along the way.

For those seeking nocturnal adventures, there’s a night bus service departing from Fes in the evening and arriving in Merzouga by morning, spanning a total journey time of 12 hours.

Fes also offers multiple weekly non-stop flights to Errachidia, with a flight duration of just one hour. From Errachidia, it’s a mere 2-hour drive along the R702 to reach Merzouga. While flights from Fes to Zagora are available, they involve layovers and ultimately result in a longer overall travel time compared to driving, hence not recommended.
