Our first steps in the world of adventure and luxury tours began years ago when our desire to share the wonders and culture of Morocco with the rest of the world grew into the development of a unique travel organization. Since those beginnings, we have broadened our horizons to offer a range of travel adventures in many parts of the country.
We offer a wide range of treks, walks, Sahara expeditions, skiing or climbing in the Atlas Mountains and many other exciting options. While some require physical as well as mental stamind, most are adventures which can be enjoyed by anyone with an enquiring mind who enjoys getting off the beaten track, discovering and learning about the country and its history.
The spirit of adventure and learning are at the core of what we offer. We are dedicated to providing quality, innovation, value and challenge within a framework of ecologically sound adventures. We offer an enormous range of different escapes, from easy walks to 4,000 metre climbs, from the High Atlas Mountains to the vast ergs in the south. Accommodation too can be varied, from top-end establishments through good quality to basic, all carefully chosen to offer value for money.
GUIDES AND TOUR LEADERS:
Moroccan Skies has a highly experienced team to help you organize your adventure to Morocco. Our consultants have traveled to and lived in all corners of Morocco and are passionate about travel. This expertise and passion shows through in their dedication to making every group’s experience the best possible.
The best people to show you a country are people from that country – their country! Our tour leaders are multi-lingual and are also versed in various local dialiects. They will explain to you, in your own language, all about the local history and culture of their homeland. They can bridge the gap between cultures and they can help you to deal with local groups or individuals, ensuring that differences are respected and helping to bring understanding and mutual benefits.
We are committed to providing employment opportunities for local tour leaders, all of whom have studied to gain the necessary accreditation in tourism. We are extremely proud of our team of excellent tour leaders.
When you join a tour, you will travel with a small group. The maximum number in any group is fifteen – small enough to avoid making a negative environmental impact on the places you visit and people you meet, but large enough to have a good time with other travelers within your group. The least footprints we leave behind us, the better visitors we are.
We do all we can to offer choices, and this may cause the group size to be very small, allowing more privacy, but we ensure always that every day offers variety and interest, no matter how small the numbers in the tour.
If you can’t find what you are looking for in our list of group tours, if your dates don’t correspond to ours, or if you would prefer to travel in your own private group, then email us and we’ll do our best to put something together to meet your requirements. Most of our website tours can be adjusted and there are more possibilities than we can list. Here are a few suggestions for special tours and special occasions. Guideline prices are based on two sharing good quality guesthouse accommodation with private transport and guidance throughout.

LUXURY AND WELL-BEING;
Experience first class adventure travel by day and sophisticated, luxurious accommodation by night, combined with the very best in personal service, transport and local guides.
ENJOY A HAMMAN:
Moroccan Hammam is one of the most ancient and richest natural systems for body health in the world. Originating in the time of the ancient Romans in Africa, it is today considered an important health tradition – not only a therapeutic practice, but also a philosophy and lifestyle. The Hamman includes both the physical aspect as well as social and environmental factors as part of creating a harmonious universe for the patient.
A Hamman is an invigorating experience. It comprises a traditional bathing ritual which combines good hour of scrubbing and pummeling while you lie on a stone slab and the application of muddy unguents, all taking place in a private heated, steamy chamber.
We offer several spa packages in charming hotels or residence where you can take time to re-balance your energies physically, mentally, psychologically and spiritually.
ROCK THE KASBAH;
If you have a preference for fine dining, we will take you to a Kasbah or superior hotel where you can enjoy your meal in a romantic setting attended by local skilled staff. All locations are private and have a theatrical theme. With impeccable planning, we will steer you to new surroundings to enjoy famous local dishes, perhaps after an afternoon lounging by the pool or shopping in a nearby medina. Later, you can stroll in the Kasbah or Ksar’s medieval gardens and watch the orange sunset as the sun dips behind the snow-capped Atlas Mountains.
Luxury tours are tailor-made to meet your personal requirements.
Morocco is a country of many joyous religious and cultural festivals. In village squares, in Kasbah halls, in riads and courtyards or Andalucian gardens, festivals are celebrated with enthusiasm and fervour.
For those who want to learn more of the cultural, artistic or musical scene, we can guide you to many opportunities to open your mind and broaden your knowledge of our traditions. Some of the colourful events included in our tours are –
- Fes sacred music festival (Fes)
- Gnawa world music festival (Essaouira)
- Rose festival (Qalaat Mgouna)
- Berber wedding festival (Imilchil)
Luxury riads, rustic mountain lodges, romantic desert Kasbahs and more ….. Morocco is a land of surprises. In the medinas of Marrakech, Fez, Essaouira or in many other fascinating towns, nondescript doorways in the warren of medieval alleyways can give way to dazzling guest houses – known locally as ‘riads’ – oases of calm and sophistication away from the bustle of the streets. Away from the towns, this element of surprise can be even more profound. It may be a romantic guest house in the guise of an old mud brick Kasbah rising out of the desert and sitting peacefully in palm-filled gardens, or it could be a charming Berber guest house, richly decorated with local crafts. In terms of accommodation, Morocco has it all, with something to suit all budgets.
Moroccan Skies has taken the trouble to find special hidden-away places for you to enjoy, places chosen because they combine a unique character with the right standard of amenities.
Contact us, by email or telephone, to discuss your plans and we will put together a proposal that best meets your requirements and budget.

Nowhere else so close to Europe gives such a strong sense of ‘foreignness’ and mystery as does Morocco, something that neither decades of colonial occupation nor the influence of tourism has managed to erode. It is a place where the colourful and the exotic can be experienced to the full. There is so much you can fit in if you take a short break with Moroccan Skies.
