Imperial cities

Good to know for your family vacation in Morocco

Imperial cities are those that served as capitals in the course of Moroccan history: Fez, Marrakech, Meknes and Rabat, the current capital. If you prefer citytrips, these cities alone can make up a family tour of Morocco.


In Marrakech, stroll around Jemaa el Fna Square, a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s the Moroccan city’s main attraction and a must-see for your children: you’ll be immersed in a festive atmosphere of snake charmers, acrobats and water carriers in traditional dress.

The souk and its different quarters are another great change of scenery: teach your kids how to bargain for souvenir babouches!


Stroll through the medina of Fès, a World Heritage site, and explore with your children the mosques, palaces, gardens, fountains…

Rabat, Morocco’s capital with children

In Rabat, take a family stroll through the blue-and-white-painted houses of the Kasbah des Oudayas fortress.

Visit the Mohammed V Mausoleum, for both the view and the symbolic value of the monument, where you’ll see the sarcophagus of the ever-popular Mohammed V.


Meknes, in northern Morocco, is an imperial city. Its many moques have earned it the nickname of the “city of a hundred minarets”.

The historic center is a Unesco World Heritage site and well worth a visit in its own right: take your children to see the imposing Great Mosque with its beautifully sculpted doors.

You can also visit mausoleums, a medersa and a museum of Moroccan arts.


Morocco Family Tours all Inclusive: Don’t miss Essaouira, formerly known as Mogador, a delightful white-and-blue walled city on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean: stroll along the cobbled streets to the port, then land on the vast beach that stretches out on either side of the city.

We spent a day in Essaouira on our way from Marrakech:

Destination Tafraout in the Anti-Atlas, a Berber town famous for its setting, nestled in a cirque of pink granite rocks.


A less urban destination, Ouarzazate, between desert and palm groves. The town itself is of great interest, with its ramparts, mosque and Neolithic-age rock engravings.

And why not visit the Ouarzazate film studios to relive the adventures of Asterix and Obelix, behind the scenes.

Chefchaouen, one of Morocco’s most beautiful medinas

The city of Chefchaouen in the Rif mountains is home to one of Morocco’s most beautiful medinas: don’t hesitate to lose yourself along the narrow streets, where houses are all painted cerulean blue with ornate, studded doors.

Pass through the central square of Outa el Hammam to see the red-fronted kasbah, the fortress and the 15th-century keep with your children.

Don’t hesitate to ask a guide to explain the meaning of the engravings, especially the symbols used to give directions to the caravanners of yesteryear.

The Drâa Valley

Fertile valleys carving out their green furrows in a desert setting, refreshing oases, an ocean of dunes in the desert, high Atlas peaks topping 4,000m, long beaches north of the Atlantic Ocean – the Moroccan landscape gives your family vacation another dimension: that of a formidable, eye-popping adventure!

Our Atlas trekking holiday in Morocco

During our stay in Morocco, we road-tripped and trekked along the superb road leading to Oukaïmden, with its hillside villages.

From Oukaïmden, we began our trek, plunging into valleys full of contrasts between the blood-red ochre earth, the fields of raw green barley, and the remote villages where women were the main occupants: we saw them washing their clothes, stamping on them with their feet, kneading them vigorously in basins.

They were surrounded by children frolicking in the water like all the children in the world!

Some women cut tall grasses and carried them on their backs, bent at right angles, while others led their cows by the halter.

For the record, the circuit of this trek took us through the Ourika valley, through the villages of Agadir, Imesska and Imiourled, over the Tizintacht pass at 2000m in the Azaden valley, then through the villages of Azaden, Tizimzik, Imlil and Arendt.

Climbing Toubkal with teenagers

In Arendt, we were in the Atlas mountains, at the foot of a colossus, the Toubkal, North Africa’s highest peak at over 4000m. After spending the night in the CAF Nelter refuge at 3200m, we ended our trek in style by climbing this easy, non-technical summit.

Good to know for your family trip to Morocco

Morocco Family Tours all Inclusive: This trek can be done with good hiking children aged 10 and over (without Toubkal) and with teenagers (with Toubkal). It’s a 1st 4000m that’s very easy to hike with teenagers who are good walkers.

Family Christmas holidays in Morocco

Why not take a family Christmas trip to Morocco? Enjoy a vacation in the sun with spring-like weather on the Atlantic coast. You can experience a unique Christmas in the Moroccan desert or even find snow to ski in some Moroccan ski resorts.

During a trip to Morocco, we stopped off at Oukaïmeden, Morocco’s main ski resort and Africa’s highest at 2,620 meters. It boasts some 20 runs for all levels, and you can even take a chairlift up to an altitude of over 3,000 m!

As for the festive Christmas atmosphere, while the streets may not be overflowing with decorations and illuminations, hotels are usually in the Christmas spirit, with traditional decorations and festivities, such as palm trees adorned with garlands. Your children won’t soon forget their exotic Moroccan Christmas!

Tailor-made family tours in Morocco

If you want to explore the whole of Morocco, you’ll need to take a family trip lasting several weeks! To prepare your family tour, it’s best to focus on a tourist area that you want to visit first. On our trip to Morocco, we started with a week of discovery and hiking in the Atlas mountains, followed by a week in Marrakech, where we spent time relaxing and visiting the red city and its surroundings. A good formula for combining itinerancy and a fixed stay.

Are you a busy parent? No time to prepare your family trip to Morocco? Then why not book a tailor-made tour through a family travel agency with local contacts. You’ll have a ready-made itinerary with accommodation, which you can modify as you wish. Here are some tours I’ve found for you
