People ask us all the time, “When is the best time to visit Morocco?” Our guides will tell that anytime of the year is great to visit because they love Morocco. But really the best way to answer “when’s the best time to visit Morocco” is to take into account what kind of seasonal experiences you want to have.
The beauty of Morocco travel is in the varied geography. While travelling in Morocco yuu can experience intense dry heat in the Sahara Desert and also see snow in the High Atlas Mountains. So its super important to decide what kind of sites and and activities you want to do when you plan (or let us plan) your trip to Morocco.
If you want to spend time in the desert, be able to hike or do a camel ride, we suggest anytime between end of September through March. Moroccan summer lasts a really long time here and you won’t want to be on a camel or a sand dune when its 40+ degrees outside. Outside of activities, something else to consider is if you’re someone who is very sensitive to the sun, these would be the best months of the year to visit because its still pretty warm without getting the worst of the sun.
If you’re a winter bunny and want to check out the skiing slopes in Ifrane, we suggest visiting between December through the end of January. While its very cold in Northern Morocco from end of November to February, there isn’t always heavy snow fall throughout the season.
Are you a surfer or kite surfer? Then from November to March is prime time to visit the Atlantic Coast from Essaouira and going south to Sidi Kaouki, Agadir, Sidi Ifni and Dhakla.
