Introduction
Morocco is the ideal setting for a family vacation – especially because you can experience the exotic in just six easy days on this carefully curated trip. For every chance you have to go stand-up paddleboarding or camel riding in the desert, there’s an opportunity to cook in a Moroccan kitchen go shopping in the souks of Marrakesh. Altogether, it means every generation in your family finds something to love. You bond like never before on an overnight stay in a luxury desert encampment. And whether you’re hanging out with village families, biking in an oasis full of palm trees, or walking in groves of Argan trees, you discover how friendly the locals are…and have a ton of fun. Through your trip, your own personal caravan of guides, friends and experts handle all the logistics and make sure your days are full of endless amazement.
Itinerary at a glance
DAY 1 -2 - Essaouira
The “Game of Thrones” fans in your family will recognize Essaouira as Astapor. In this lively coastal city, you can go standup paddleboarding, wander in the medieval medina, and cook an authentic tajine with a local chef. In the nearby Val d’Argan, you meet Berber families in their villages and get a chance to sip the local wines at a tasting.

DAY 3 – Desert Encampment
At a classic Kasbah, our friends offer you a taste of the goat cheese they make themselves. Then, you mount camels for a ride into the Agafay Desert for an unforgettable night in a luxury camp where the star-watching is amazing. Choose walking shoes or a mountain bike on the path to a tiny mountain village where your guide will introduce you to his friends who live there.

DAY 4-6 - Marrakech
Marrakech's renowned square offers an exciting mix of snake charmers, monkey tamers, storytellers, acrobats and other performers. Your local guide leads the way into the mazelike souks where you meet the artisans and can do some shopping. You also wander through Bahia Palace and the Jewish quarter on your way to Koutoubia mosque, and your trip ends with an over-the-top farewell dinner in an elegant private home.
