We are particularly proud of this (sample) itinerary - it has it all. City, beach and skiing. Let's take them in order...

Marrakech is one of the world's most exotic (and romantic) cities - you have time to explore under your own steam or with a guide. Stay in a traditional Moroccan riad for three nights, right in the Medina. Ski in Oukaïmeden, Africa's highest ski resort. Then head to the Atlantic coast, heading to either Agadir - Morocco's most famous beach destination and venue for many 'winter sun' package holidays, or Essaouira - a former Phoenician trading post and one of the most picturesque towns in the country. Here the beach has excellent kite-boarding or wind-surfing opportunities. In both instances, they have tremendous beaches that stretch for miles. On the coast, temperatures are likely to reach 23°C through the day, with plenty of sunshine. However mornings will be colder, with lows likely to be circa 8°C.

Day 1

Fly to Marrakech, where you are met at the airport and transferred in to your accommodation within the city.

Day 2

A full day to explore Marrakech - the mosques, the souqs, the narrow streets, the palaces and Djema El Fna, an open space that comes alive at night, packed with entertainers and soothsayers.

Day 3

Head up to the Atlas Mountains and spend the day skiing in Oukaïmeden. After your day on the slopes you head back to Marrakech for the night.

Day 4

Transfer to the Atlantic coast and either Agadir or Essaouira. Afternoon to settle in to your new surroundings.

Day 5

A day in the town, exploring or on the beach.

Day 6

A second relaxation day on the Atlantic coast.
 

Day 7

Transfer to the airport for your flight back to the UK.
