Taroudant

Responsible Tourism AwardTaroudant can be a fascinating part of a Moroccan holiday, either by itself or as part of a more extensive trip. It is an authentic Berber market town in the heart of the Souss Valley with the best preserved town walls in Morocco and a backdrop of the High and Anti Atlas Mountains.

With few tourists, it is a great place to gain an insight into Moroccan culture and environment. Our unique Real Morocco programme is based here with interesting souks, tremendously varied local geography, a warm winter climate and an ideal location to explore further into the south of Morocco.

 

Overview

The Town

Taroudant is a market town with a predominantly Berber population, who are well known for their friendliness. Its town walls are more complete than any other town in Morocco and has souks that are reputed to be the best in the south. Taroudant offers visitors an authentic experience of everyday Moroccan life and a relaxed atmosphere for first time visitors to Morocco.

It is well placed in relation to a great variety of contrasting environments nearby (sea, mountains, oases and mountain passes), so it is an excellent base for trips in the region.

Weather

Taroudant has warm winters - from November to March it is the warmest town in Morocco - yet in summer the cool Canaries Current prevents it from being the hottest.

Location

Taroudant is positioned in the heart of southern Morocco between the High Atlas and the Anti Atlas Mountains.

The nearest international airport is Agadir but, due to modern motorways, Marrakech arrivals are also suitable for visitors to Taroudant.

Taroudant is in a great position for visitors to access:

  • Marrakech, the bustling centre of Morocco for most visitors around 3.5 hours to the north (or a longer, but highly scenic drive through the mountains);
  • Agadir, the Atlantic coastal resort (and international airport) around 1 hour's drive west;
  • Essaouira, the pretty beach, coastal medina and fishing village around 4 hours' journey north west; and
  • Skoura, the oasis town en route to the desert around 5 hours' journey east.
