Many travelers not only want to ‘see’ beautiful places, but also ‘do’ interesting things to do during their trip. And the activities that Morocco offers to its tourists are numerous and varied. Therefore, our agency can integrate them into your tour to make your experience in the country even richer. In this section we give you access to some of the most common of our catalog, but if you wish you can contact us to organize many others.
The experiences that are part of the Morocco Tourism catalog are very varied. We cover the interests of all types of profiles: from nature lovers to travelers in search of relaxation, through those who want to unload adrenaline or expand their cultural knowledge about the country. These are some of the most interesting things to do in Morocco, which you can book with us before or during your trip.
Traditional tents have been used for centuries by the nomadic Berber people in their desert villages. Among other things due to the magic of the surroundings, sleeping in them is already one of the most spectacular experiences in Morocco: a sky filled with stars, overpowering calm, intriguing lighting at sunset and sunrise… Additionally, the fact that they are luxury tents increases the sense of tranquility and well-being because they are furnished with the best amenities, just like a hotel would be.
This is one of the best things to do in Morocco for those who love adventure. It is an experience where you will be able to unload adrenaline, going through tracks previously used in the mythical Paris-Dakar rally. To do so, you will be able to get on vehicles specifically designed to drive through the desert in a fast and safe way at the same time. For example, the buggies, which is a light chassis car, with a body without a rigid roof and big wheels, in such a way that it offers a much more exciting experience. And the same goes for quads, which are four-wheeled quadricycles with a passenger, so that the user lives the experience in first person.
This is one of those activities that any Moroccan who appreciates culture and history need to do. Our tour guides are always certified by the Ministry of Tourism and available in your preferred language or in English. Many of our itineraries include these guided tours, particularly those that stay long enough in Marrakech and Fez, two of the places with the greatest cultural, artistic, and monumental diversity. On the other hand, if you’d like, we can set up a legitimate local guide in any other Moroccan city.
Moroccan cuisine is becoming a more popular tourist attraction, and activities like cooking lessons are commonplace in the country’s major towns. You may acquire Moroccan cooking techniques from them and prepare delicacies like the various varieties of tajines, Chebakia, or Harira, among others. They take place in settings with the highest standards of cleanliness and employ trained chefs who will explain the ingredients and procedures to be followed as well as know how to communicate the love they put into them.
Arabic is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. Therefore, taking classes is one of the many activities that we offer you in Morocco. It is a booming proposal in the big cities, especially in those with a great cultural tradition, such as Fez. It is possible to take one-off classes, but it is also possible to book an intensive course of several days, which will help you to master the language a little better. In addition, it is possible to focus on Dariya, a dialectal variety typical of Morocco that also integrates borrowings and adaptations of other languages, such as Tamazight or Berber or even French and Spanish.
Can you picture a medina’s skyline, complete with minarets and domes, from a height of several hundred meters? Or perhaps the striking color contrasts of a lush valley in the middle of a desert as seen from above? With the aid of our company, you may participate in a balloon flight, a wonderful thing to do in Morocco, to make this feasible. Wherever it is legal and when the weather is suitable, we have suppliers who provide this service. Therefore, this activity will be one of the most suggested for your trip if you wish to soar like a bird and see the nation from a different perspective.
The dromedary is an animal closely linked to Moroccan culture and traditions: it was used by the Berber nomads of the desert for long-distance travel, such as the caravan routes that crossed the Sahara from north to south, from Marrakech to Timbuktu. Today, there are still dromedaries in the country, and many of them retain their role as a necessary means of transport, as they are still very useful in some environments. For example, touring the dunes of the deserts of Erg Chebbi, Erg Ouzina, or Erg Chegaga, which are activities that we include in many of our desert tours. In other cases, they have a more playful character, such as the walks that take place in the palm grove of Marrakech. In both cases, they are Moroccan experiences that will allow you to get in touch with these noble and docile animals.
There are things to do in Morocco especially interesting for those who can’t put together many days on the road. Spending a night in the desert of Agafay is a great alternative for those who do not have time to sleep in tents in the deserts of the far south, such as Merzouga. In this case, several dozen kilometers from Marrakech, you can experience the experience of staying in a tented camp equipped with every detail, surrounded by a lunar landscape typical of the Moroccan hamadas.
Argan oil is one of the most traditional products in the country, and also one of the most appreciated in the world for its cosmetic and health properties. Therefore, one of our experiences in Morocco consists precisely of a visit to a local cooperative where argan oil is produced, extracted from the native tree of the same name, following the ancestral techniques that led Unesco to protect this activity as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
Morocco has very diverse folklore, particularly in terms of music. The Gnawa genre is among the best examples, having been “imported” years ago by sub-Saharan slaves who came to the nation. It has persisted as an identification trait in some populations after being passed down from generation to generation. It was also recognized by Unesco as part of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity for this reason. We include it in our list of things to do in Morocco as a result of this as well. You can take advantage of it in locations like Khamlia, a desert town known as the “village of the blacks.”
These are just a few examples of the things we offer in Morocco, but if you have any other suggestions—such as photo safaris, yoga sessions in the desert, or other simply enjoyable and interesting pursuits—please let us know. If it can be organized, you can rely on the assistance of Vacations In Morocco.

For all types of travelers, Morocco has a lot to offer. While the glitzy riad hotels, shopping options, and hammam (traditional bathhouse) soak and scrub experiences in Marrakesh and Fes are some of the main tourist attractions for people who enjoy opulent city getaways, the best places to visit for adventurers are the trails of the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara’s desert dunes.
Since Morocco is so close to Europe, many tourists go here for brief stays and concentrate on just one or two locations and activities. By extending your stay, you can visit the beach, and the mountains, or spend the night in the dunes while also taking in the sites of the city.
The lodging in Marrakesh is a draw in and of itself, and for many tourists, staying in one of the riad hotels located in the medina (ancient town) is one of the top things to do while visiting the city.
A riad is a typical residence in the Moroccan medina with a central courtyard garden. With wood ceilings, tadelakt (polished lime plaster) walls, traditional zellij (ceramic tile) features, and brass swinging lamps, many have been restored to their former glory and offered as secluded little hotels. These hotels showcase swags of traditional Moroccan artisan expertise.
The riad hotels in Marrakesh provide a soft entry into the city and serve as suitable bases for touring the medina. They are tucked away in the medina alleys and have rooftop terraces and inside courtyards (often with plunge pools) to unwind in.
The most well-known village in Morocco’s Rif Mountains is Chefchaouen, which is also one of the country’s most photographed locations due to the lanes and walls of its tiny medina being painted in blue tones.
The village is a convenient pit break for travelers traveling through northern Morocco because it is close to Tetouan, 197 kilometers northwest of Fes, and 112 kilometers southeast of Tangier.
Although exploring the town’s narrow alleys and taking in the ambiance is the major activity, there are many climbs in the Rif Mountains to choose from once you’ve taken in the town’s vibrant streets.
The Muslim and Jewish exiles who fled from Spain in the 15th century and lived in Chefchaouen are responsible for the city’s distinctive architecture, which includes Spanish-style balconies and roofs with ceramic tiles. But it wasn’t until the 1930s that the buildings started to be painted blue.
