Pinned to the north-west corner of Africa, between the Sahara Desert and the Atlantic Ocean, Morocco is a weave of cultures with European, Middle-Eastern and Sub-Saharan threads. Whether you’re looking for an invigorating activity holiday in Morocco or a unique Moroccan day experience, there are plenty of local activities to choose from.
It’s a country of magic and mystery. Ancient cities with centuries-old medinas play host to buzzing, chaotic markets and souqs, and this gateway of Africa offers some of the warmest, most generous hospitality you will experience anywhere in the world.
Travel itineraries can be tailor-made for any traveller searching for unique, secluded experiences. Whether you’re searching for adventures in the spectacular snow-capped peaks of the soaring Atlas Mountains, surf camps and water sports along the rugged Atlantic coastline or day trips to the dramatic, arid hillsides dotted with ancient fortresses, Morocco beguiles and enchants from day one.
You could one day be muscling your way through Marrakesh and the throngs of locals, dizzy from the heady mix of smells, sights and noises, and the next be setting off to the laid-back coastal town of Essaouira for a photography workshop and cooking lesson.
Or maybe heading out into the endlessly vast Sahara Desert with its perpetually shifting dunes, star-studded skies, as trains of camels and nomads eternally wander through this ocean of sand to cool, blue oases and gently glowing, dusty mountain ranges.
Add one of our unique experiences and activities in Morocco to your holiday itinerary and you can expect incredible, colourful experiences, ensuring you leave with memories that will last a lifetime.
Morocco is generally split into three distinct climates, the hot, dry Saharan south, the High Atlas, and the cooler north and western coast. It is generally consider a great destination year-round as while some parts of Morocco have extremely high temperatures in the summer, the western coast averages at around a rather pleasant 22 degrees throughout the year.
Expect temperatures of 22 degrees in March to 27 degrees in May in Marrakesh.
The weather begins to warm in Spring, and you may see some sandstorms in the south of the country. In the mountains, the snow begins to thaw and paths start to open up to trekkers, while in the north, the beaches and cities become warmer and more popular, especially as Easter rolls around.
Expect temperatures of 31 degrees in June to 37 degrees in August in Marrakesh.
In June, northern Morocco and the High Atlas Mountains are great places to be, as reliably warm temperatures hang around, and it’s starting to really hot up in the south of the country. As the summer goes on, temperatures can actually become a little unbearable, especially in the desert and the mountains. The beaches on the southern coast are your best bet at this time of year as they maintain an average temperature of around 25 degrees at this time of year.
Expect temperatures of 33 degrees in September to 22 degrees in November in Marrakesh.
This is an ideal time to visit the northern coast as the domestic tourists empty from the beaches and temperatures become a bit more cooler for those not used to warm climates. The desert becomes cooler and actually quite pleasant, with cool breezes and warm weather.
Expect temperatures of around 19 degrees in Marrakesh.
In the north of the country, you’ll be getting wet, chilly, Atlantic weather and the High Atlas Mountains are pretty much impassable due to snowfall. However, in the south of the country, warmer temperatures still attract visitors, especially in the warmer coastal towns where the average temperature is around 20 degrees.
Epic mountains, laid-back beaches and vast deserts, Morocco is awash with unique experiences in incredible settings - all perfect to adding to your holiday itinerary. Get off the beaten track and discover one of these places to visit in Morocco.
