Desert

Think golden sand dunes, plodding camels and Bedouin tents under the stars- no Morocco holiday would be complete without a trip into the vast expanse of The Sahara. The desert is fine to visit all year round, though we’d suggest avoiding July and August when temperatures can soar to a roasting 40C.

Cities

You can visit Morocco’s imperial cities of Rabat, Meknes, Fes and Marrakesh any time of year but the temperature is wonderful in spring. Summer can get quite hot, particularly in Marrakesh, but if you take it slow like the Moroccans you shouldn’t have any problem in the heat.

Mountains

If you’re planning on doing a spot of trekking on your Morocco holiday, we recommend doing it between April and October. Be sure to bring some warm clothes though as it can get quite chilly in the evenings. During the rest of the year there are very few organised treks and in winter mountain passes are often blocked due to heavy snowfall.

The Coast

The Moroccan coast has relatively dry, mild winters and cool summers. Temperatures average 20C-27C all year round. May – September has the best beach weather with plenty of sunshine. Essaouira has a permanent sea breeze, so evenings can be quite cool.
