This 1-week family trip to Morocco excitingly blends together the Atlas Mountains and the Atlantic Coast. We travel from Marrakech to spend 2 nights beneath Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa. Here, we spend time with the local people, learn how to bake bread Berber-style, have a traditional Moroccan 'hammam' bathing experience and take a walk in the hills with mule support and a tasty picnic. Then, after driving out to the pretty seaside town of Essaouira, we have time to enjoy the hotel pool, explore the enchanting souks of this old port, take a surfing lesson and walk along the Atlantic beach with camels. Returning to Marrakech, our holiday ends with a lesson in Islamic calligraphy and a chance to absorb the atmosphere of the Djema el-Fna, with its snake charmers, jugglers and story tellers. Altogether, an unforgettable experience.
Some of our departures are run in conjunction with our friends at Allibert Trekking in France. This gives the holiday an international flavour and enables the children to make new friends across the channel. All guides speak both English and French.
Is this holiday for you?
Suitable for children from 6 yrs old
With an easy day walk in the Atlas Mountains supported by mules, and another easy walk along the beach at Essaouira supported by camels this is not a difficult holiday physically for the children. We enjoy cooking and calligraphy lessons as well as having time to relax in both Marrakech and Essaouira. For the 2 hour surfing lesson in Essaouira children need to be 8 years or above and must be competent swimmers (they must be able to swim 25 metres with ease). Our hotels in both Marrakech and Essaouira have swimming pools.
