When to go

The best time to visit Morocco is from March to May, which is the country’s spring season. Autumn, which is September to October, is also a great time to visit. The weather will be warm but not overly humid and hot, unlike the summer months in Morocco.

The mountain regions are accessible all year but will be very cold in winter. Conditions are ideal any time between April and October. Outside of these months, the summits are covered with snow, making hikes challenging.

High Season - March to May and September to October

Spring and fall is the high season in Morocco because of the perfect temperatures - not too hot or cold!

All kinds of activities can be done in these months, especially a visit to the desert is recommended. In the summer months, it will be too hot throughout the day, in winter it can get freezing cold at night.

In high season, it will be crowded, many tourists visit Morocco and prices tend to be a bit higher than during other months of the year. Tourist season might be a very busy time, but there will also be a lot going on - a fun time for sure.

Where to go? The weather is great for a desert excursion but also for sightseeing in the city, hiking or surfing on the coast.
