Family Adventure Holiday in Morocco

This two-week adventure uncovers the very best that Morocco offers. You'll travel through the High Atlas Mountains passing fortified Kasbahs, and into the heart of the Sahara where fertile oases contrast with vast sand dunes before reaching the chilled-out coastal city of Essouira. On our way we ride a camel to a desert camp, spend a night sleeping under the stars, cycle to a UNESCO World Heritage Site, visit film sets from block-buster movies, learn how to cook a traditional Berber meal and have the opportunity to try surfing in the Atlantic.

TRIPLE ROOMS
This trip allows the option for triple rooms to be included within the booking on a selected number of night stops within the holiday. If you would like this option, a discount may be applicable on the cost of the trip - please ask our Sales team for further information.
