Winter Experience Holiday Editors Pick: Morocco Ski Experience 

Tour name: The Morocco Skiing Experience

So this winter we’ve got a different kind of holiday experience for you and the best part is, you and your better half can both be happy, as the Morocco Skiing Experience will give you both a chance to soak up some much needed warmth and you’ll get to hit the slopes. Now that’s what we call a winter holiday experience.

Untravelled Paths guides will meet you in the stunning and bizarre Marrakech where you’ll get to literally, lose yourself, in the chaos of the Medina with bustling Souks and its flamboyant displays of storytellers, teeth-pullers and snake charmers. You couldn’t make this place up. It’s always worth exploring through as many doorways and rooftops as possible, you’ll be amazed and how many trendy and quirky little bars, restaurants and cafes there are.

Now after the madness of the Medina, you’ll get to switch things up and enjoy some peace and tranquility in your beautiful riad. Dip your toes into the clear azure waters of the swimming pool, then melt into a comfortable armchair and soak up the sunshine in the serene courtyard with a refreshing cup of Moroccan mint tea.

80km from the heat and mayhem of Marrakech, you’ll first see the snow tipped peaks of the magnificent Atlas Mountains. Witness the dramatic scenery and vibrant colours on the journey through the wild Altas Mountains, admiring the clusters of Berber mountain villages and exotic waterfalls peppered along the road.

Once you arrive at Oukaimeden ski resort, you’ll get kitted up with all your gear and equipment so you’re ready to hit the slopes and experience Morocco on the snow. Amazing! With 5 runs, 2 nursery slopes and a chair lift to the summit, the resort caters for all levels and even provides mules to help carry your skis and add some Moroccan spice!

Key Highlights: Marrakech, Atlas Mountains, Souks, Skiing
