This day trip to the Agafay desert gives you the opportunity to get acquainted with the stunning rock desert landscape. The Agafay Desert is only 30 km southwest of Marrakech between the eastern lakes of Lala Tuckercust, south of the High Atlas Mountains. During our Agafay desert day trip, you will explore untouched wilderness and trashy areas. The landscape of the Agafay Desert Morocco is covered in wheat, barley, and flowers, but in the summer and autumn months, it looks like a real desert with flowing sand dunes and the bonus of a majestic snow-capped view of the Atlas Mountains in the background. In spring, Agafay offers wildflowers and plants, among other things, which makes it a beautiful and awe-inspiring experience in the desert.
