Duration: 4 days

Winter is a great time to visit Marrakech, when temperatures are pleasant, crowds are fewer and the streets teeming with local colour. We'd suggest that we book you a room in a riad, for the authentic Moroccan experience. For one of your full days, spend time exploring under your own steam, or alternatively Different Snow can organise a guide to help you get more from the city. The other day is spent up at the ski resort, Oukaïmeden, where we've provided transport up to the Atlas Mountains. On the final day, you decide when you come home - we could get you back to the UK in the morning or you may choose to spend an extra day shopping in the souqs of Marrakech.

Day 1

Take your international flight to Marrakesh. Upon arrival into Marrakesh airport you'll be met and driven to your accommodation, perhaps a riad in the Medina?

Day 2

You have a day in Marrakech, giving you opportunity to visit the beautiful Saadien Tombs as well as maybe the Bahia Palace and Koutoubia Mosque. Spend the afternoon  around the different quarters of the Medina and souq.

Day 3

This morning you leave Marrakesh behind and head up to Oukaïmeden ski resort in the High Atlas Mountains with your driver and guide for the day. Spend the day on the slopes of  Jebel Attar, before heading back to Marrakech in the evening.

Day 4

You could choose to take a morning or afternoon flight, allowing more free time Marrakech if desired. Transfer back to the airport for your return flight.

Obviously, cost depends on which accommodation you choose. An indicative lead-in price for this long weekend itinerary would be circa £449 per person, including international flights from the UK and based on staying in a 3 or 4 star riad.

Different Snow can include flights from your home country, be it the UK or elsewhere. By keeping it all within one package, your arrangements are protected.
