Day 1
You will arrive in Marrakesh and be met at the airport to be escorted to your hotel via private transfer only 45 minutes away.
Day 2
Today you will be driven into Imlil into the Atlas Mountains and will spend the day in a 4x4 exploring the most beautiful landscapes of mountains and traditional Berber villages.
Day 3
At leisure - spend the day relaxing under the Moroccan sun and dipping in the refreshing pool.
Day 4
At leisure - you might like to venture over to the nearby Agafay Stone Desert for camel or horse riding, or dune buggying.
Day 5
At leisure - you could head to Lalla Takerkoust lake to cool down, which offers water activities such as canoeing and kayaking, stand up paddle board, jet ski and hover boards.
Day 6
After breakfast you will be driven just under three hours to the charming seaside haven of Essaouira, a fortified fishing port on the Atlantic coast.
Day 7

Day 8
At leisure - you could arrange an 'Argan forest adventure' in the countryside where you'll learn about argan oil. Fruit-loving goats lend a hand in the production process of this sought-after exotic oil, and you may be lucky enough to see these curious, tree-climbing animals as we cross the world’s only argan forest.
Day 9
At leisure - for lunch we recommend heading to the harbour with its stalls of freshly caught barbecued fish, or to the beachfront promenade for a fresh seafood tagine. If you enjoy cooking there is wonderfully authentic cooking class we can arrange for you in a former almond warehouse!
Day 10
At leisure - you could spend the day exploring some beautiful hidden gem beach spots up the coast. There are several fascinating villages a short drive away, including the artisan village of Zaouit where you can make your own masterpiece with the help of a local potter!
Day 11
You will be picked up from your hotel in Essaouira and taken back to Marrakesh Airport in good time for your flight home.

With a plethora of palm-lined hotels, a breeze floating off the Atlantic, and a guarantee of sun almost every day in July, August and September, Morocco can make a great summer destination. There’s no doubt that temperatures can climb very high in these summer months – it’s not unusual for it to hit 40°C or more in some parts of the country – but as long as you have air conditioning and a pool nearby for a refreshing dip then this makes for a great lazy getaway. To handle the heat, we recommend spending a few nights in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, where there are a handful of beautiful hotels with stunning gardens and turquoise swimming pools. Head up to the traditional villages at higher altitude here (in an air conditioned 4×4!) for a few degrees drop in the temperature and some authentic culture.

Follow this with five nights over on the beach, where you can fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. The pretty little town of Essaouira is ideal for pottering around – the narrow streets of the medina were made for hot temperatures so provide plenty of shade – and lie on a sun lounger under an umbrella at your central hotel. Head out for a wine tasting one day, and spend the rest of your stay in a state of hazy relaxation.
