Trip Info

Enjoy a fun discovery trip on this desert tour of the Merzouga sand dunes. Explore the Chebbi erg, one of the two largest ergs in the Moroccan Sahara. It is 22 km long and 5 km wide. Some of the dunes can reach 150 meters in height.

With the Walking on the Dunes tour, you will enjoy discovering the beauty of the desert nature. In addition to its benefits for our body, walking plays an important role in our mind health. You will be able to clear your mind from all stresses and worries. Walking frees our minds because, all the way, we have only one thing to do, think!

On this tour, you will try variations of walking to enhance the adventure of the trip. We will be walking briskly, mountain walking and running along the dunes. Known as the Afghan, this breathing and walking technique allows camel drivers to travel great distances. With synchronized breathing and the rhythm of steps at a rapid pace, it enables nomadic camel drivers to cover up to 60 km per day. The natural oxygenation is also beneficial to the body and mind.
