If you’ve explored the Marrakech medina and haggled for bargains in the sprawling souk, heard storytellers weave their magic in the Djemaa el Fna square, and dined al fresco on Moroccan cuisine, it’s time to travel further afield to discover more of the magic of Morocco.
Marrakech sits in the foothills of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, North Africa’s chain of mountains linking Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. Here, the High Atlas range is cut by the Draa River to the south and Imlil valley, Ourika valley, Zat valley .. to the north. There are lots of excursions to do from Marrakech to the The Berber Valleys of the High Atlas Mountains which are only about a one hour drive from the city. Here are some days tours you can do from Marrakech
Close to Europe and a great winter destination, Morocco is a great option for families with small kids with plenty of short excursions and day trips.
Family travel to Morocco has never been easier. Travel to Morocco is easy, and there are a lot of fun activities for kids, teens and adults alike. Holidays can be arranged to include a comfortable stay, but with plenty of exciting excursions to visit medinas, camel rides into the desert, and hiking – depending on where one stays. A family holiday in Morocco combines adventure, culture and lots of fun.
Moroccan Package Deals for Families
Visiting a city like Marrakesh or Fez gives kids and adults plenty to see or do, besides enjoying the hotel facilities. Medinas are a wonderful place to while away a few hours, with intriguing spices, smells, foods, wares and trinkets to bargain for. Pastries, fresh fruit, nuts and kebabs are readily available on the streets.
Moroccan Excursions for Families
Most hotels will arrange for excursions, Car hire is simple and Morocco independent travel is easy enough for visitors. Independent operators for tours and excursions are readily available. Some optional tours include:
Travelling to Morocco with kids will attract a lot of attention, since Moroccans love children. Following a few useful tips will keep travellers safe:
From the moment you arrive in Marrakesh, you’ll get the distinct feeling
you’ve left something behind – a toothbrush or socks, maybe? But no, what you’ll
be missing in Marrakesh is predictability and all sense of direction. Never
mind: you’re better off without them here. Marrakesh is too packed with
mind-boggling distractions and labyrinthine alleyways to adhere to boring linear
logic. If you did have a destination, you’d only be waylaid by snake charmers,
out-of-control donkey carts, trendy silver leather poufs and ancient Berber
cures for everything from relationships to rent.
Start at the action-packed Djemaa el-Fna, and if you can tear yourself away
from the castanet-clanging water-sellers and turbaned potion-sellers, head into
Marrakesh’s maze of covered market streets. Marrakesh’s souqs are like a cold
riad plunge pool on a scorching July day: nothing quite prepares you for the
shock. Dive in headfirst at any street headed north off the Djemaa el-Fna, and
with any luck you’ll emerge exhilarated and triumphant some hours later, carpet
While you’re in the heart of the Medina, you may come upon a palace museum,
stay in a riad guest-house, and venture a dish of piping-hot snails. But it’s
worth leaving the charms of the old city occasionally for dinner, drinks, art
galleries and fixed-price boutique shopping in the ville nouvelle (the new
town). Go with the flow, and become an honorary Marrakshi bahja (joyous
Places to Visit :

Today, we start our family fun expedition driving into the Atlas Mountains,
climbing high and onwards to our destination Ouarzazate. Interestingly, this
stunning town & area has been made very famous by featuring in so many
classic Hollywood movies. Ouarzazate or known by the Berber locals as ‘the door
of the desert’ has been the backdrop in films such as ‘Gladiator’ (Russell
Crowe), ‘Alexander’ (Oliver Stone) and classics like ‘Lawrence of Arabia’.
Together, we will visit the famous film studios here and let our imaginations
How would you like to see a gorge that has walls a 1000 foot high? Well
today, we have the unique opportunity to discover and explore the stunning Todra
Gorge. The whole family will witness the magical affect of the stones changing
colour, as sun moves from East to West, delivering varying shades of yellows,
oranges and glowing reds. As the day evolves so does your Morocco adventure
tour, and we cruise back to relax by the hotel pool. Here we harmonies in the
subtle warmth of Morocco life and dream steady of the days ahead. Home life is
now a distant memory.
The great family adventure continues by crossing the Jebel Sahrou mountain
range and downwards to the ‘Erg Chebbi’ or sand dunes to you and me! This
majestic sand structures signify the beginning of the mighty Sahara Desert,
where we’ll swap 4×4 jeeps for camels to trek deep into this hypnotic landscape.
During this inspiring transit on this unusual form of animal transpaortation,
you’ll be wow’ed at the bewildering expanse of the Sahara Desert. Even the kids
will have clarity in their own peacefulness as the desert envelopes itself
around you. In good timing to satisfy one’s hidden beast, we’ll arrive at a
genuine Berber camp for delicious food and a night underneath the skies wet with
stars. Tonight we will hear tales of old, and the whispers of the desert night
and relaxation in one of the most spectacular overnight locations you’ll ever
Our next stop is the Gorges du Dades, a stunning gorge of the Dadès River and
lies between the Atlas Mountains and Anti-Atlas mountain range. Although sad to
leave the hypnotic charm of the Sahara, day five promises to be as every bit
special as the days so far. Along our way we’ll discover the purpose built
Kasbahs and many other southern wonders of this beautiful region. Tonight you
will stay in a fantastic hotel in the Gorges du dades.
Your Morocco family adventure holiday is about to discover another incredible
town called Aït Benhaddou, a ‘fortified city’ and Unesco registered for its
historical value and beauty. Interestingly Aït Benhaddou has been home to many
film sets from Gladiator to The Mummy. The natural landscapes are a feast for
the eyes and the town itself is located hill side. Together we’ll take a guided
tour, and discover the dusty treasures of this unique city.
We’ll have time in the morning to enjoy some free time in Ait Benhaddou,
before moving on. When ready we’ll journey over the Atlas Mountains and head for
the red glow of Marrakech. It’ll be late afternoon by the time we arrive in this
exotic place of intrigue and family adventure. This is Morocco’s second largest
city, full of marvellous colour, luscious fruits, street sellers and
entertainers. We’ll freshen up and then explore the main square ‘Djamma-El-Fna’
before resting for another delicious dinner.
A family holiday in Morocco wouldn’t be complete without a city tour. It
takes a local to really show you the delights of this city. Marrakech the
distant city conjures up many images of exotic magic carpets, snake charmers and
frankincense and myrrh brought in by camel trains – and we’ll bring this sense
of magic to the whole family. We’ll of course begin in one of the busiest
squares in Africa, then weave our way through darkened alleyways, find hidden
gardens & court yards. Your senses will overload on the sights &
exciting smells and you’ll be able to test your bargaining skills with the
world’s greatest sales men. Need more relaxation, we can highly recommend a
traditional Hammam steam bath and massage, not a bad way to end the day.
The tour ends after breakfast in Marrakech. We hope to see you again or at
least read your testimonials

Clothing & Equipment List for Morocco Highlights
Although Western clothing is quite acceptable, Moroccans generally
dress more traditionally -
especially in rural areas. Out of respect for
local culture please dress conservatively i.e. no sleeveless
or low cut tops
etc. Although shorts are acceptable in main tourist areas, they (like skirts)
baggy and reach at least to the knee. Women should cover their
heads, arms and legs when entering
religious buildings. At night in the
desert or mountains (especially from October to March) it can get
surprisingly cold, so pack warm and windproof clothing.
The following list
of clothing and equipment is intended to be fairly comprehensive and
travellers may well take a good deal less luggage than we

the knee) and upper arms.
Jebel Toubkal & Imlil
Jebel Toubkal, at 4,167 m (13,334 ft) the highest mountain in North Africa, draws those interested in ski-tours in winter and alpine hikers in summer. Approaching it from Marrakech on the S 501, turn to the left past Asni and follow the P 6038, an adventurous, landslide-afflicted trail, along the picturesque river oases of Mizane, to Imlil (1,800 m/5,760 ft). The rickety omnibus taxis from Asni also run here. This mountain village, has a lot of what the trekker’s heart desires, for example , equipment shops, guesthouses, guides, mules and muleteers, …
The parking area is guarded. State-examined mountain guides – among them one named Mohamed Aztat, a good-natured linguistic whiz – can be hired at negotiable daily rates. If desired they can organize the entire trek. On the other hand, the drivers of the pack-mules work for fixed, though not unreasonable tariffs. Now and then one may also ride the astoundingly sure-footed mules to shorten the walking time. It’s no problem for the drivers, who enjoy the enviable physical condition of marathon runners!

When To Go?Toubkal actually gets a pretty ferocious winter and enough snow to make winter mountaineering (with ice axes and crampons) and ski mountaineering (using skins to climb on skis with articulated bindings) a prospect. Slog up, whip off the skins attached to the ski base by a Post-it Note type of reusable glue, and slide down back to base. There are many ski routes documented in a French book on the subject, a legacy of Morocco’s colonial past. This colonial past is also where the refuge system comes from. Built by the Club Alpin Francais (CAF), they are scattered around the mountains. I have visited Toubkal in February to ski but the snow cover was disappointing. Better to wait until late March for spring skiing.
But back to trekking. Most hikers will want to visit Toubkal when the snow has largely melted and before it gets too hot. That leaves April-May and September-October as the best times to visit. Trekking outside these periods affords a more tranquil experience but be prepared for colder temperatures and snow. On my ski trip, a Spanish couple dressed in jeans and sweatshirts stumbled into the refuge at 3,200m, shattered, frozen and with a dog! Despite our advice this ill-equipped pair continued up the frozen scree and patchy hard snow the following day, without ice axes or proper footwear.
Even in spring and autumn, the diurnal temperature range is enormous and you will need warm clothes, hats and gloves. Sturdy trekking shoes as opposed to big clunky climbing boots will suffice if there’s no snow. Unless you’re camping, you should only need a medium sized rucksack (no more than 50 litres) to carry your kit. Donkeys are available for hire at the road head in the village of Imlil for those wishing to camp and take the kitchen sink. But why camp when there are those perfectly positioned, well-priced refuges that will serve a decent meal?!
Most people head up the south col / cwm, as it is the most straightforward way up the mountain. However, there are a lot of other ways up the peak, so if you are into more than just peak bagging – it’s really worth exploring the different options. My favourite route is via the WSW ridge (Ouanoums), however, this requires full rock climbing / Alpine equipment to get the maximum enjoyment from the route. Try the north col / cwm if you want to try something slightly different – there is even wreckage of a crashed plane en-route.
The following are some basic route descriptions, however, I cannot guarantee their accuracy or be held responsible for any errors. It is up to you to check all information you receive, and ensure your own safety. As in all mountain zones you should make sure you take the appropriate equipment, including map and compass, and be prepared to navigate in Alpine conditions.
South Col / Cwm (Irhzer n’Ikhibi Janoub)Toubkal South Col
In summer conditions there are a number of tracks, which all seem to eventually lead to the top. From the headwall before Tizi-n-Toubkal is the point of most confusion, with tracks going everywhere. However, the peak is obvious in clear conditions – use your common sense and you should make it OK. Toubkal is well known for it’s scree slopes. However, over the years, with more and more people climbing the mountain, the scree slopes seem less atrocious than they used to be. In winter conditions, you may end up breaking the trail. If so, get as early a start as you can, like many alpine areas, the snow will soften later in the day making progress harder.
Setting off from the Neltner hut, cross the stream and head east for the obvious hanging valley. From the base of the steep climb there is usually a path crossing from right to left ascending the scree and rocks to gain the valley properly. Follow the valley bottom up, keeping close to the stream bed, ascending all the time until you reach the headwall of the valley. Climb this, exiting onto the slightly less steep area immediately below Tizi-n-Toubkal. After gaining the Tizi, follow the ridgeline NE. The path narrows and steepens, passing crags until the summit plateau becomes visible. Continue on to the iron pyramid. In strong winds beware of being blown off the cliff faces on the ridgeline and summit plateau.
Time to ascend: 3-5 hrs. Descent: 2-3 hrs (Depending on conditions)
GPS point of summit – N31 03.667 W7 54.928
North Col / Cwm (Irhzer n’Ikhibi Shamel)Toubkal North Col Route
Toubkal’s north col / cwm route is far more interesting than than the south col route. It also benefits from having fewer people on it. People that climb the north col route, will normally descend by the south col route. This makes a great day out with the advantage of not covering ground already seen.
Start by descending the main valley northwards for a short period. As soon as possible cross the stream and start a rising traverse. After a short time the north col / cwm should begin to be visible, head up to this over the easiest looking ground. Gain the valley properly and keep climbing steeply, passing several rock bands. Look out for parts of a crashed plane en-route. Keep left until you get to the headwall, ascend this by the obvious exit. Head for the col and enjoy the great views. Follow the rocky ridge south which steepens, finally exiting on the summit plateau.
West South West Ridge (Ouanoums)
In summer conditions it is a great climb with no great difficulties, a classic alpine ridge route – Grade III+ with an avoidable IV (HS with avoidable VS 4b.) In winter it is another story with parts of the route often quite heavily verglacé. Every year the conditions are different, depending on amounts of precipitation, sunshine etc. For conditions on the ridge it is best to check with the guardian of the Neltner hut.
To gain the ridge, from the hut head south up the hill. After a kilometre or so the Ouanoums Col (Tizi-n-Ouanoums) will become obvious. In summer conditions there will be an obvious trail from the col, as many parties climb up from the Lac du Ifni. In winter there may not be a clear trail, so be prepared to wade through the snow to gain the col.
From the col the ridge route starts at the south facing cliff. The route goes up four major steps, the third one only gained by an abseil from the top of the second climb. The rest of the ridge is easy scrambling. Once the last climb has been made, walk up to the Toubkal south peak, down to Col du Toubkal, and follow the normal south col / cwm route up to the main peak.
