Holidays to Morocco 2017

Morocco is a fascinating destination to visit at all times of the year and we have some ideas to help you with your planning. Now that most airlines have published their flights until 28th October 2017, you can plan well ahead and get the best deals on flight prices.

Check out our 2017 holiday’s 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 for this excursion. Another attraction well worth seeing at this time of year is the beautiful Almond Blossom Festival held in February near Tafraoute.

Suggested Itineraries:

Anti-Atlas Mountains and the Atlantic Coast

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. There are now direct flights to Essaouira from London Luton twice weekly. Taroudant is also a great place to visit during the spring, this less frenetic and much more tranquil traditional Berber town boasts a wealth of cultural experiences for you to indulge in. Marrakech is also worth a visit to offer some diversity and some hustle and bustle to your Moroccan experience.

Suggested Itineraries:

Atlantic Coast and Medinas

The Real Morocco

Marrakech High Atlas Mountains and Taroudant


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 scheduled from 12th- 20th May 2017.

The Gnaoua Music Festival this year is scheduled to take place on the coastal town of Essaouira from 29 June - 2 July 2017 - a spectacular music event but you'll need to book soon. For those who love cultural musical festivals, there is a choice on which to visit.. or both if you have the time!

Suggested Itineraries:

Imperial Cities of the North
Tour of the North

Atlantic Coast and Medinas


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:

Imperial Cities of the North
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 as part of the Real Morocco experience.


Suggested Itineraries:

Coast, City and Culture of the Berbers
The Real Morocco


November and DecemberMarrakech

Plan that special pre-Christmas break to Marrakech for a Short City Break or to get away from it all over the Christmas and New Year period - best to book early to avoid disappointment and expesnvie flight prices.


Suggested Itineraries:

Marrakech, Zagora and the Sahara
Medinas, Gorges and Desert
