Why you'll love this trip
  • Dodge the donkeys, discover the dye pits and embrace the smell of spices as you navigate the mystical alleyways of Fes under the guidance of your expert leader.
  • Share a cup of sweet mint tea with Amazigh locals and enjoy a local lunch in a mudbrick kasbah as you explore the unchanged culture and stunning scenery of Todra Gorge.
  • Ride a camel over windswept sand dunes at sunset and spend an evening camped under the Sahara’s starry night sky.
  • Witness Morocco’s changing landscapes from the comfort of your private minivan – from fertile valleys and lush pine forests to ancient kasbah ruins and the rocky Atlas Mountains.
  • Enjoy all the benefits of a knowledgeable guide, whilst enjoying plenty of free time as a family to relax, swim and explore at your own pace.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Education for All. Donations help them support girls in the High Atlas Mountains through secondary school, bringing a generation of women out of the cycle of illiteracy, poverty and early marriage.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Summer (May to September) can be very hot everywhere, which means that it can be quite uncomfortable for those not used to the heat. It’s important to use sun protection and drink plenty of water. Please consider this when booking during the Summer period.
  • This trip includes time spent travelling in a minivan with your group. Extra space can be tight, and conditions may feel a little cramped. It’s all part of the adventure and a great way to get to know your fellow travellers. Please read the itinerary carefully for travel time estimates.

ARRIVAL AIRPORT TRANSFER
A complimentary airport arrival transfer is included; valid if you are arriving on Day 1 or if you have booked pre-tour accommodation through us. You must provide your flight details to your booking agent at least 14 days prior to travel.
STAYING CONNECTED
While Wi-Fi is available in our hotels it is important to note that wi-fi works best in the hotel foyer and will be very slow in the rooms. An easier option may be to purchase a SIM card in Morocco to stay connected.
TRAVELLING DURING RAMADAN
Ramadan is an exciting time to travel through Morocco but there are also a few things to bear in mind. Meal times will be a lot later than you may be used to, in particular dinner. You will find restaurants will open at 7–7.30 pm in the evening for dinner. Which will mean your family may not be eating dinner until 8–8.30 pm. Likewise breakfast may not start until 7 am. As you travel through the countryside there will be limited small road side cafes to stop at. Your leader will pre-plan where to stop to ensure families have access to snacks and bathroom stops along the way. Morocco is a Muslim country therefore alcohol is not readily available, particularly during Ramadan.

A wonderful trip for families with teenagers who are interested in learning about a different culture and experiencing its sights and sounds. Ali G was an amazing guide and added a further dimension to this wonderful trip. I woukd highly recommend this trip which even in the sweltering heat of the summer was managed so well it was a pleasure to be on.

Wonderful tour of Morocco, seeing everything from the historical cities to a desert nomad's camp. Highlight was a night under the stars in the Sahara. Excellently planned and guided.

Beautiful Moorish architecture, the treasure trove of the Fes Medina souk, the majesty of the Atlas Mountains, the silence of the Sahara and the clamour and bustle of Marrakesh, all in 10 days. What a fantastic tour!

My family and I LOVED this trip. A great introduction to Morocco, it's sights, history and people. We also loved having Hassan as our leader - a font of knowledge and source of inspiration to the kids and adults alike. Not sure i'd travel in August again thought -man was it hot! :)

Intrepid attracts families who are open minded and curious, the children and adults on this trip were a pleasure to travel with. It was magical to give our children an experience of such a different culture and natural terrains to our own.
