Tour Details

Morocco is a gateway to Africa and a country of dizzying diversity. Here you’ll find epic mountain ranges, ancient cities, sweeping deserts – and warm hospitality.

Morocco is growing as a popular tourist destination, as it’s an incredibly accessible way to experience North African culture on a budget. Located on the north-western edge of the massive African continent, Morocco is just a quick flight from Europe.

Enjoying Morocco starts with nothing more strenuous than its national pastime – people-watching in a street cafe with a coffee or a mint tea. Use the opportunity to plan your next moves – hiking up North Africa’s highest peak, learning to roll couscous, camel trekking in the desert, shopping in the souqs or getting lost in the medina. Between the activities, you can sleep in boutique riads, relax on panoramic terraces and grand squares, and mop up delicately flavoured tajines – before sweating it all out in a restorative hammam. 

Mount Toubkal, mountain peak that is the highest point (4,167 metres) in Morocco and in the Atlas Mountains. The peak is situated 60 km south of Marrakech in the High Atlas (Haut Atlas). Juniper forests covering the mountain’s higher slopes are succeeded by alpine meadows, whereas the lower slopes have been extensively overgrazed.
The peak is the central attraction of Toubkal National Park, an area noted for its winter skiing and summer hiking.
Mount Toubkal is a non-technical summit with its highest peak at 4,167 meters. At the peak awaits views of a dramatic border between land, ocean, and desert.

Immerse yourself in the vivid culture of Morocco and climb the highest peak in North Africa. With breath-taking views of the Atlas Mountains, green valleys, and endearing Berber villages, Mount Toubkal will not disappoint.

Aït Benhaddou is a historic ighrem or ksar (fortified village) along the former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakesh in Morocco. It is considered a great example of Moroccan earthen clay architecture and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987.

Morocco’s cities are some of the most exciting on the continent. Join the centuries-old trail of nomads and traders to their ancient hearts, from the winding medina maze of Fez to the carnivalesque street-theatre of the Djemaa El Fna in Marrakesh. In the rocky deserts medinas are protected by kasbahs, on the coast by thick sea walls. But it’s not just a heritage trip, as Morocco’s cities are forward-facing too, with glitzy new urban design in Casablanca, Rabat and Tangier looking to the future as well as paying homage to their roots.

Weather:

The best time to visit Morocco is Autumn (September-November) or early spring (March-April). The weather is warm, but you will avoid the extreme temperatures of the scorching heat and cold nights.

Whatever time of year you choose to visit, there’s something special about Morocco. Yes, it can be super-hot in summer, but what about the coastlines you can cruise and the balmy evenings you can enjoy? Yes, winter in the mountains can deliver almost freezing temperatures, but what about cooler experiences in the Sahara, smaller crowds and cheaper tourist rates? There are a number of important factors to take into consideration when planning your adventure to Morocco and, like a good buffet, you’ll be able to pick the best bits.

When to visit the see the Sahara? Probably autumn (September–November) or early spring (March-early April). With scorching heat in summer and plummeting night-time temperatures in winter, avoiding these extremes will make your desert stay more comfortable. The seasons in between can provide ideal conditions to head out in the arid landscapes, but keep in mind that unexpected sandstorms happen in the desert, especially during April, and they’re not pleasant to get caught in. Whatever time you decide to travel to the Sahara, be sure to pack extra layers to protect your skin and face from the overhead sun and swirling sands. They’ll also help to keep you warm at night, when temperatures can drop significantly, even in the warmer months.

BEST TIME TO TREK MOUNT TOUBKAL
The best time to go on a Mount Toubkal trekking holiday is, for most people, during late spring or early autumn months, when temperatures are not too extreme.
For people new to trekking at high elevations, the best time to climb Mount Toubkal is in the spring months of Apr-May, or the autumn months of Sep-Oct. This way you avoid extremes of hot or cold. Some trekkers relish the challenge of winter climbs, which take place between Oct-Apr using crampons, ice picks and a lot of determination. Treks do take place in summer, too. Of course, the mountains are cooler than the desert plains, but you will still need to be prepared for searing heat on those hills.

If you are trekking during Ramadan, please respect the cultural rules around feasting and fasting and remember that your porters and guides will be doing so. For the next few years Ramadan falls April and May, and then March and April.

June is a popular month for tourism in Morocco. The first of the summer months, it’s a time of year when the kids are out of school, but temperatures are still reasonable in most parts of the country.
In inland cities like Marrakech, the temperature can get as high as 35C during the day, but that’s still a lot cooler than the 40C and up you may find in July and August.

With proper planning, cool clothing, and a handy water bottle, you should find it easy to enjoy your explorations in most areas of the country.

The average daily temperature in Fes and Marrakech ranges from 25C to as high as 35C, although once the sun goes down, things cool off and become much more pleasant. And up in the mountains, days and nights are still quite a bit cooler. In fact, even in June, it is possible to find snow in the High Atlas region of the country.

June marks the beginning of the dry season in Morocco. It is quite normal for most areas to get very little to no rain at all until sometime in September or October. Drought conditions are not uncommon at this time of year. Keep this in mind when traveling, so you don’t become dehydrated during your adventures.

Although it is understood that tourists dress differently from the locals, it is still a good idea to be respectful of the conservative nature of the Moroccan people, most of whom are of the Islamic faith. You are less likely to draw negative attention to yourself if you keep your legs covered to below your knees and keep your shoulders and chest covered, as well. There ARE places where shorts and bathing suits are welcome. But when wandering the local Medina, you will have a much more positive experience if you dress a bit conservatively.

Currency:

Local currency used in Morocco is Dirham, denoted as MAD or Dhs. It’s preferable when you go out pay in Dirham currency. The Moroccan currency is the Dirham.

On the whole, Morocco is inexpensive by Western standards. Moroccans tend to haggle over prices and accept that others will do the same, especially in the country’s markets, or souks. The cost of certain services — such as guides, car rental, and mechanical services — can also be negotiated. However, in businesses such as restaurants and grocery, hardware, electrical, and fashion stores, prices are generally fixed. In the bigger cities, prices for virtually everything are higher, especially in the main tourist centers of Marrakech, Agadir, Fes, and Casablanca. In addition to this, prices can rise for public transport and in hotels and restaurants over the post-Ramadan feasts of Eid al Fitr and Eid al Adha, and again in the main tourist centers over the Easter and Christmas/New Year holiday periods.

As the dirham isn’t traded internationally, there’s no money-changing black market, and exchange rates vary marginally between banks, bureaux de change, and even most hotels. Changing money at a bureau de change is quicker than at banks, although some banks do have dedicated booths just for money exchange.
There is always a problem making change in Morocco, and it’s often difficult to pay with large banknotes. Always be on the lookout for smaller denomination (10 and 20) bank notes and dirham coins, as this will make your life easier during the daily trials of tipping for services and paying for inexpensive everyday goods such as bottled water.


Vaccination:

Yes, some vaccines are recommended or required for Morocco. The CDC and WHO recommend the following vaccinations for Morocco: hepatitis A, hepatitis B, typhoid, rabies, meningitis, polio, measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis), chickenpox, shingles, pneumonia and influenza.
COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for travel to all regions, both foreign and domestic.
