The weather in Morocco can be extreme. Summer temperatures can be uncomfortably hot, especially for those who aren't accustomed to the heat, so please consider what time of year you travel carefully. If you do travel in the warmer months then pack layers to cover you from the sun, bring the necessary sun protection and drink plenty of water. The desert can also get cold at night, so remember to bring base layers and warm clothing.
The trip involves some early starts and long days due to the itinerary being packed with lots of exciting activities.
You will have a chance to discover the coast of Morocco on a horse back. While horses are great animals, we understand not everyone feels confident on their back. Please make sure you will make your tour leader aware of any issues before the start of this activity. Helmets for this activity are provided by us.
As Morocco has a tipping culture, travellers are expected to tip small amounts for most services, so please be prepared. Your leader will suggest methods and amounts to tip during the trip, but it is left to the group to decide the details.

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.
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 country to stay connected.
Our Morocco Family Holiday with Teenagers trips score an average of 4 out of 5 based on 2 reviews in the last year.
Short itinary but quite fullfilling physically and culturally. Be ready for exercising your thights horse riding on the beach and dunes followed the next day by many hours of cycling in the stunning mountains of the Atlas and also hiking there the next day. The Hamman will give you the real experience of a scrub and massage! An unforgettable taste of Tajine in Marrakech, on y va!

This trip is very active and has an amazing selection of included activities, keeping the whole family happy. If like me it's been a while since you cycled uphill I'd suggest you do a bit of training as the Hammam massage at the end was needed... ATMs are everywhere with +3 within 1 min walk from hotel so no need to carry too much cash.
