Holidays to Morocco

Morocco is a fascinating destination to visit at all times of the year and we have some ideas to help you with your planning. Most airlines publish their flights 11 to 12 months ahead so now is the oppotunity to plan your holiday in advance.

Check out our holiday calendar below for some suggested itineraries and best places to visit throughout the year.

 

January and FebruaryTaroudant

Best to head south for the warmth during these months which is ideal if you are seeking a winter retreat. For the more adventurous why not visit the Sahara desert and experience the majesty of this great wilderness or head off the beaten track and explore the remote and spectacular Anti Atlas Mountains. Taroudant a relaxed traditional Berber town makes an ideal base during the winter months.

Suggested Itineraries:

#2 Anti-Atlas Mountains and the Atlantic Coast

#7 Secrets of the South

#15 Marrakech, Zagora and the Sahara

#9 Medinas, Gorges and Desert


March and AprilEssaouira

Spring is a wonderful time to visit all areas of Morocco and especially the pretty coastal town of Essaouira. Taroudant is also a great place to visit during the spring, this less frenetic and much more tranquil traditional Berber town with strong traditional values for you to experience. Marrakech is also worth a visit to offer some diversity and some hustle and bustle to your Moroccan experience as well as the Sahara desert region and High Atlas Mountains.

Suggested Itineraries:

#8 Atlantic Coast and MedinasHigh Atlas Mountains

#5 Marrakech, High Atlas Mountains and Taroudant

#9 Medinas, Gorges and Desert

#15 Marrakech, Zagora and the Sahara

#14 A Kingdom of Kasbahs

#17 Mountain Explorer and Marrakech

#20 Ancient Cities, Desert and Mountains

 


May and JuneRabat

Temperatures are warming up now in the north and an excellent time to visit the fascinating, unique and ancient city of Fez and the northern Imperial cities. An option to perhaps extend your trip up to the pretty ‘blue’ mountain village of Chefchaouen - Fez also holds the Festival of World Sacred Music usually scheduled for around June.

 

The Gnaoua Music Festival is usually scheduled to take place on the coastal town of Essaouira in June - a spectacular music event but Chefchaouenyou'll need to book early. For those who love cultural musical festivals, there is a choice on which to visit.. or both if you have the time! Southern itineraries are good this time of year too.

Suggested Itineraries:

#11 Imperial Cities of the North
#12 Tour of the North

#8 Atlantic Coast and Medinas

#4 Marrakech, High Atlas and Atlantic Coast

 


July and AugustFez

These are the peak hot summer months and best to avoid the desert region during this time, but coastal regions remain more temperate so Rabat is an interesting option - a lovely city to explore, with fewer tourists and direct flights from Stansted or trains from Marrakech and Fez. Or the option of Essaouira further south on the coastline with it's cool breeze and feels much cooler than inland.


Suggested Itineraries:

#11 Imperial Cities of the North

#12 Tour of the North

#8 Atlantic Coast and Medinas


September and OctoberHigh Atlas, Imlil

The High Atlas Mountains are stunning in the autumn, whether for relaxation or walking this is a good choice if you love natural beauty. Also the Souss Estuary (near Agadir) is a good option at this time of year as birds start to migrate through the region and perfect for nature lovers/birdwatchers. It’s at this time of year the saffron is harvested in the Anti Atlas Mountains and this is something worth seeing. Most itineraries are suitable for these Autumn months.
