Culture and adventure intertwine kaleidoscopically on our Morocco holidays, brought vividly to life by our partners who are dedicated to getting you beyond the beaten tourist trail. Local guides add deeper shades of understanding, whether you’re on luxury trekking tours in the Atlas Mountains, wandering the souks of Marrakech in search of honeyed chebakia, or sleeping beneath the stars in the Sahara Desert.

About our Morocco holidays
Culture in Morocco
Winter sun aside, you go to Morocco for its culture. Things are done differently here, but it’s great how quickly you’ll get used to your new cultural norms – waking up with the call to prayer in the morning, sharing a tagine, chatting over mint tea, haggling in the souk, or picking up words of Tamazight and Arabic. Family-run riads – houses centred around leafy courtyards – are in high demand if you want to stay in Marrakech. If you’d like to experience Berber life – the majority of Moroccans are of Berber descent – head to the Atlas Mountains.
Walking holidays in Morocco
Morocco’s Atlas Mountains are a great place for walking holidays. The High Atlas is high enough that you can even trek in the summer months – though prepare for heat. The Anti-Atlas, further south, reaches lower altitudes and gets fewer visitors. It’s a great place for winter walking. Those wanting a bigger challenge can look to Jebel Toubkal, the highest mountain in the Atlas range – and in North Africa. You don’t need technical skills to climb over a five-day trek, though if you opt for the same trek over winter you’ll need crampons and an ice axe. Your guide will show you how.
Cycling holidays in Morocco
The promise of a hammam at the end of the road is a powerful motivator – but there are many other reasons to spring into the saddle. Cycling in Morocco is a great way to see the countryside in all its rugged glory. Forget the road bike: off-road is best here. Try mountain biking in the Rif Mountains and stopping in the colourful city of Chefchaouen to refuel. In the High Atlas you can explore the Dades and Todra gorges, dive into the Draa Valley, and cycle in the foothills of Mount Toubkal. Cycling holidays are challenging, but rewarding. Read our Morocco cycling guide for more.
Family holidays in Morocco
Show your children a sky full of stars above the Sahara Desert, and it might be the first time they’ve ever seen the night sky in all its glory. See them build confidence as they chat to Berber families and get them to buy themselves an orange juice in Marrakech’s Jemaa el-Fna. Morocco family holidays – and the Moroccan seasons – fit in well with school timings. At Easter, try the desert; in summer, you could go into the Atlas Mountains. Family hiking holidays in Morocco come with a muleteer – your kids will dote on the donkey.
Morocco is mostly mountainous. The Rif Mountains sit in the north of the country, their fertile valleys forested with cedar, oak and pine. The Atlas Mountains run like a diagonal speedbump across the middle. Morocco’s green quiff brushes the bottom of Spain, but the burnished blush of desert creeps into the picture from the south-east corner. The Moroccan Sahara is famous for Erg Chebbi and Erg Chigaga – giant dunes best summited by 4x4 or camel. The country also has a long coastline on the Mediterranean and Atlantic. Seek out the beach near Essaouira.
Types of tours & holidays in Morocco
Going on a small group holiday in Morocco means that you can tackle some unforgettable journeys without having to worry about finding your way back – great if you want to try hiking in the Atlas foothills, biking down Todra Gorge, or summiting Mount Toubkal. A small group trip also means that when you get to the desert on a cultural tour, you already have your own ready-made guided camel train. Adventure holidays in Morocco can involve sleeping under the stars among the sand dunes in Bedouin camps, taking a sleeper train from Tangier to Marrakech, or even travelling over to Spain and Portugal.
