Duration: 4 Days

This short break in Morocco is our recommended holiday option for a few days in Marrakech focusing on a selection of exciting activities. We are offering the chance to combine a city stay with a fabulous guided day hike and an afternoon's quad biking in the palmeraie surrounding Marrakech's northern limits. With our many years of experience putting together practical and interesting itineraries for our clients we would like to recommend this short break for you to make the most of your brief time in this fascinating country.

Highlights of your Marrakech Activity break:

  • Marrakech has much to offer the visitor - the historic and labyrinthine Medina, the majesty of the Palaces, the tranquility of its many gardens and the sophistication of its more modern boulevards and cafes. Today, Marrakech has become a thriving metropolis with chic night spots, top restaurants and a very modern atmosphere in places all of which emphasises the immense historical context of the Medina and its focal point, the Djemma el Fna.
  • An exhilarating quad biking experience on the outskirts of Marrakech. A range of bikes, full training, equipment and insurance is all included. Enjoy a 50km run through the famous oasis of Marrakech – the "Palmeraie" – crossing of the Oued Tensift; piste riding through Berber hamlets, dune scaling and lots more. Plenty of photo opportunities throughout!
  • A fabulous day hike to visit the High Atlas, departing from Marrakech in the morning for an exciting 2 hour drive south through to one of Morocco's most beautiful valleys - the Ourika Valley - teeming with lush vegetation, palmeraies, steep-sided gorges, ancient terraced irrigated fields and Berber hamlets. After meeting your guide for the day you will head off for a 5-6 hour circular hike with a stop for a fresh picnic lunch overlooking a magnificent panorama of Berber villages, waterfalls and the high peaks of the Toubkal Massif.*
    • * Your actual picnic stop depends upon which hike you choose and the daily conditions in the mountains.

  • A half-day city tour of the historic sights including the famous souks of Marrakech. Whenever you wish to fit it into your schedule we can have one of our regular guides available.
