Itinerary

Fly to Marrakech
Day 1-3

Marrakech

The first stop on your family adventure is the pulsating city of Marrakech. After a three-and-a-half hour flight, you’ll be whisked to the stunning Fairmont Royal Palm Marrakech, a spacious hotel situated on the outskirts of the city and your family’s home for the next three nights. We’ve handpicked some of our favourite experiences to inject your stay with limitless fun on every corner you turn.

Fuel up the whole gang with a delicious breakfast in the hotel before setting off on a stimulating tour of Marrakech with your expert guide. Unlock hidden secrets of some of the city’s most legendary sites. From the ornate Koutoubia Mosque and ancient Saadian Tombs to the striking El Bahia Palace and famous bustling Souks, your guide will be on hand to bring the town’s enthralling history to life. We’ve also included an exclusive ‘souks and spices treasure hunt’ for the whole family to get involved in. Scramble through the winding maze of bazaars in search of specific spices. Learn about traditional Moroccan cooking techniques and sample a range of delicious heritage dishes featuring the distinctive spices your family have sourced. After a busy day of exploring the medina, splash around in the hotel’s large outdoor pool, freshen up for the evening and head down to one of the three restaurants on offer for a scrumptious dinner.

Accommodation: Fairmont Royal Palm Marrakech ( 2 nights )
Day 3-4

Agafay Desert, Moroccan Desert

Leaving the bustling city of Marrakech behind you, it’s time to hop in the car and drive an hour into the spellbinding Agafay Desert. Venturing into the wilderness is integral to any trip to Morocco. Vast and unearthly, it’s an exhilarating experience and an exciting place for any family to escape to.

Tucked between the buzzing streets of Marrakech and the snow-capped peaks of the Atlas Mountains, the Agafay Desert offers a taste of the Moroccan desert experience without the long days of driving that the Sahara requires. Staying one night the exclusive Inara Camp, your family will be blown away by the level of service and luxury this secluded camp presents. With its welcoming atmosphere, spacious tents and an inviting swimming pool, Inara Camp is a fun and unique place for the whole family to relish new experiences together. Bring out your family’s adventurous side with a range of thrilling activities on offer. We’ll arrange a 4x4 Desert Safari that you won’t want to miss. Feel your hearts racing and adrenaline pumping as you all zoom across the rugged landscape in a sturdy 4x4. With your expert guide, traverse the rocky landscape, learn about the surrounding environment and pitstop for a scenic picnic lunch along the way. In the evening, indulge in delicious homecooked cuisine, obsess over the spine-tingling sunset and marvel at the radiant blanket of stars that sweep over the vast night sky.

Accommodation: Inara Camp ( 1 night )
Day 4-7

Essaouira, Morocco

The final leg of your adventure starts with a scenic two-hour drive to the coastal town of Essaouira. You’ll have the fantastic Sofitel Essaouira Mogador as your home for the next three nights. A luxurious hidden treasure nestled within the scenic natural landscapes and overlooking the glistening Atlantic Ocean, it is the perfect family haven to round off your trip. Each of the hotel rooms and suites offers plenty of space and are all fitted with a large TV and wi-fi. If you would prefer some more quality family time, allow us to upgrade you to one of the hotel’s 28 villas each with their own butler and private pool.

The hotel offers ample facilities to keep your active teens entertained with its 18-hole golf course, scenic garden walks, surfing at the beach, lavish Hammam spa, well-equipped fitness room, local excursions and endless fun in the two outdoor pools. The choice is yours as to how much or little your family would like to do. In between making use of the boundless facilities, hop into town on the hotel’s free shuttle bus and explore the charming streets of Essaouira. After a busy day of outdoor fun, freshen up for dinner and head down to one of the four dining options on offer. From fresh local seafood served by the pool to mouth-watering barbeque food served in Le Club House, there are plentiful options to suit everyone.

Accommodation: Sofitel Essaouira Mogador ( 3 nights )
