Marrakech Day Trips & Excursions
Marrakech Quad biking
There's not a lot of activities to do in the Marrakech desert but quad biking is without a doubt one of the most adrenalin-pumping activities that you can partake in. The quad bikes are perfect for powering through the rugged desert terrain at high speeds in the afternoon bliss. Before the adventure begins, you are provided with a helmet and a pair of goggles for safety as well as a cheich (traditional scarf) to protect you against the strong desert winds.
Camel Ride in the Palm Grove of Marrakech
A camel ride in the palm groves in Marrakesh starts with a cup of mint tea in the evening as the sun is setting. Our guide will drive you to the Palmeraie, which is a palm grove located on the outskirts of Marrakesh. Here, you will find camels and trainers who will walk you through the art of riding these animals that had been used for centuries in this part of the world for transport across the desert. Once you learn the art of riding and master the safety features, leisurely stroll through the verdant palms and sands as the sun sets on the horizon. The ride normally takes an hour so tourists can enjoy the serenity of the surrounding as well as take pictures to capture the moment. Once the ride is over, our guide will drive you back to your hotel.
