Fodor's Expert Review Fint Oasis
About 20 km (12 miles) outside of town, heading south via Tarmigte, the picturesque Fint Oasis is a popular destination for day-trippers. The track leading to it is rough but can be handled in a standard vehicle if you drive with extreme care. Head off-road toward the dark, rocky escarpment and the track eventually meets the river, where palm trees spring into view. You can walk through Berber villages along the riverbed and stop for a simple lunch at one of the few local auberges. Many agencies in Ouarzazate can arrange half- or full-day guided visits to the oasis.
