This exclusive small-group tour is a wonderful way to enjoy both aspects of Morocco: the buzz of Marrakech and the majesty of the Atlas mountains.

There’s more to Morocco than the snake charmers of Jemaa el-Fnaa, so join our exclusive-to-Friendship small-group tour to discover the majesty of the High Atlas Mountains on guided walks, as well as the sights and sounds of Marrakech.

Few cities in the world enjoy such a dramatic setting and atmosphere as Marrakech where the rose-pink walls of the ancient city sit low beneath the soaring peaks of the Atlas Mountains and the towering palm trees jostle for position above the medieval ramparts where nesting storks colonise each vacant turret. Marrakech is an exciting and lively city, it boasts a vibrant medina listed as an UNESCO World Heritage site, vast souks considered by many to be the best in Morocco, numerous historic monuments, luxurious riads and tranquil, exotic gardens.

Our tour starts with a 2-night stay at the Diwane Hotel in Marrakech. It’s a modern 4-star built over 5 floors in riad style around a courtyard, with a hammam where you can arrange a traditional massage (pay locally) plus an outdoor pool. Dinner on the first night is included and on the second you might choose street-food in the square or a local restaurant (own cost).  Our included half-day tour takes in the Bahia Palace and the Saadien Tombs among other sights.

On day 3 we transfer to the Hotel Tatfi for 3 nights in the mountains. With only 8 rooms we may have it to ourselves: each self-contained cottage has wood ceilings, tiled floors and simple styling including a fireplace. The stone riad includes a lounge with Berber rugs and comfy seats, a stylish dining room, terrace and lovely pool. Food is traditional, using organic produce from the garden. We include dinner every evening here, and a picnic lunch on the two guided walking days. This is a magical opportunity to explore the real Morocco and we hope you can join us!

If you live in Bristol area, the flights are only once a week - but we can offer a 7 day package to enable you to fly direct from Bristol. Ask for further details.

The attractions of Marrakech are well-known, from the acrobats and jugglers in the square to the ancient mosaics of the palaces and mosques. We also love the Jardin du Majorelle and the chic Maison de la Photographie de Marrakech.  Friendship’s local Host will share tips on haggling in the huge souk and easy-to-pack souvenirs include colourful leather slippers, freshly-ground spices and essential oils.

Little more than an hour along a winding road and you’re into a different realm:  the High Atlas Mountains. The peaks are awe-inspiring, while the foothills offer moderate hiking challenges through orchards of almond and apricots, past Berber villages on pathways worn by donkeys, and up river valleys edged by juniper. The High Atlas is a place to walk and wonder, before returning to a beautiful new riad to relax on a lounger by the pool or on cushions by the fire.

Our holiday dates mean comfortable temperatures for walking: bring sunscreen for bright winter days, decent walking boots and a cagoule in case of a shower.
