Your Moroccan adventure begins in the atmospheric city of Marrakech. Set off on two vintage motorcycles complete with sidecars as your expert Pelorus guide takes you for a tour through the city’s maze of alleyways to see some of its more exclusive sights.

Rise early the next day and board a hot air balloon. Leaving the city and flying above the caramel-hued sands of the Haouz Plain, watch the colors change as the sun rises and take in the majestic High Atlas Mountains. Once you’ve completed your flight, dine on a delicious breakfast at the base of the balloon.


Travel to the Toubkal National Park. Home to North Africa’s highest mountain, you’ll spend the morning on a trek in the Mizane Valley passing through traditional villages. Stop in a Berber village for lunch in an authentic mountain auberge. Refreshed, walk to the foot of the scenic Kik Plateau. Climb into dune buggies for an adrenaline-racing journey into the heart of the Agafay stone desert.

Journey through the mountains and into the Sahara Desert. Enjoy hikes amid the rural scenes found here, take lunch with a local family in their house, and browse Berber markets as you gain an authentic glimpse into rural life in Morocco.

Riding mountain bikes, tackle a new off-road route that runs through the Atlas Mountains and over one of North Africa’s highest passes (nearly 10,000ft above sea level). Switch to 4x4s to arrive at an exclusive palm oasis for the night.

Travel on to one of southern Morocco’s most impressive oases—a tapestry of mud villages, decaying kasbahs, and millions of date palms—before returning to the desert for a two-night stay in a luxury desert camp. While there, try desert bread baking, sand boarding, quad biking, camel trekking, hiking, and catching the sunrise and sunset from the top of the dunes.

Transfer back to Marrakesh with a scenic helicopter ride from the desert to the city, before beginning your journey home from an unforgettable family adventure.
