Magical Marrakech, the High Atlas & the Sea
From $4,399 pp dbl. occ. | 6 days / 5 nights
(+$1,050 for sgl. occ.)
This family trip is exotic and exciting—kind of like riding a camel. You'll savor tagines and be mesmerized by Berber music. Hike to a rustic village in the Atlas Mountains. Meander past olive groves to the sea. And yes, ride a camel on the dunes. Perhaps you've traveled with us before. But come to Morocco and your non-camel vacations just won't compare.
- Experience the dazzling colors, majestic architecture and palm-lined boulevards of vibrant Marrakech
- Delve into an exotic landscape and gain a unique perspective—from the back of a camel!
- Enjoy a twilight walk on Essaouira's beach and luxuriate at Heure Bleue Palais, with spectacular ocean views
- Witness traditional life and share mint tea with locals on a hike to a remote Berber village in the Atlas Mountains
