Morocco Travel Essentials

Best Time in Morocco: When to Visit

The best time to visit Morocco is from mid-March to May and September to October. The weather will be sunny and warm. Generally speaking, spring and autumn are always the best choices to travel to in most countries. In general, Morocco is a destination that can be visited all year round. You can choose when to visit Morocco depending on your interests, for it will offer you plenty of events and activities at different times of the year.

Coastal areas in winter (November to February) with mild temperatures are perfect for enjoying your leisure holiday. In the summer (July to August), you can still have fun in Morocco because it will not be unbearably hot. You can plan some water sports or a short excursion to the Atlas Mountains. However, it is not a perfect time to hike or do outdoor exploration during the hot summer. You can arrange outdoor activities in the morning and afternoon to avoid the heat.

Must-Do's in Morocco

  • Explore the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca

    Hassan II Mosque, which was designed by French architect Michel Pinseau, is widely considered to be among the world's most beautiful places of worship. It took seven years and the combined efforts of 10,000 skilled artisans to complete this project that King Hassan II commissioned. Only when you stand in front of Hassan II Mosque can you feel how magnificent it is! Especially when the sun goes down, you see a breathtaking view as the mosque reflects magical colors with a backdrop of the golden sky and sea.

  • Camping Under the Stars in the Sahara Desert

    A journey to Morocco is not considered complete until it includes at least one excursion to the Sahara Desert. It must be an once-in-a-lifetime experience that you will never forget to spend the night in a traditional Bedouin camp. You may take a camel ride to discover the unending desert and see the fantastic dunes at dawn and sunset. As night comes, you may enjoy a freshly prepared supper with a friendly Bedouin family under a blanket of stars.

  • Discover Marrakech Medina

    You'll have a once-in-a-lifetime experience thanks to Marrakech's traditional arts and cuisine and the fantastic entertainment options available. One of the most well-known places to visit is Jemaa el Fnaa Square, where you can find various Moroccan cuisine and entertainment. Marrakech Medina is home to several souks, or traditional Moroccan marketplaces, from which visitors may bring home unique keepsakes. After a day of exciting sightseeing, you may have a cup of mint tea in a local pub or restaurant

  • Take a Moroccan Cooking Class

    Moroccan cuisine is distinct and well-known all over the globe. Try some of these tasty treats at one of the many restaurants or food stands, and then join up for a cooking lesson so you can master the art at home. The souks are where you can get all the ingredients for traditional Moroccan dishes. And most guesthouses and riads will provide cooking courses where they will take you shopping for the ingredients and show you how to make them traditionally. And enjoy your finished dishes, which can be the best paid off for your half-day effort.

  • Stroll Around Chefchaouen

    Venturing into the rugged Rif mountains, you'll find the small town of Chechaouen, one of the most captivating Moroccan cities. Its picturesque mountain backdrop provides a dramatic backdrop for the blue buildings and cobblestone streets that have made it renowned. Strolling slowly around the streets, discover the local handicraft markets and sidewalk cafés. Or hike atop the Spanish Mosque for a stunning panorama view at sunset.

  • Hike High Atlas Mountains

    The High Atlas is a great place to get away from the city and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful scenery of the mountains. Imlil, a mountain town within an hour's drive from Marrakesh, is the starting point for most walks in the area. April and May have the most favorable weather and the least amount of precipitation, making them ideal months for hiking. Hiking around the mountain's base is enjoyable in its own right if you're not up for the climb to the peak.

  • Discover the Roman Ruins of Volubilis

    Explore the past in the Roman ruins of Volubilis, situated on a lush plain approximately 33 kilometers north of Meknès. As the most significant archaeological site in all of Morocco, Volubilis has been under UNESCO protection since 1997. Bronze and marble sculptures, inscriptions, and beautiful mosaics may all be found here for your viewing pleasure. You can see Volubilis as it was 2000 years ago as you wander amid the remains
