Immerse yourself in the Valley of the Roses


Located in the country’s southeast, at the foot of the High Atlas Mountains, the Valley of the Roses owes its name both to the flowers that grow here and its soil’s glow. Here is where you can admire this soft hue on natural terrains and traditional building walls. The valley has a pleasant climate all year round, but autumn and spring are the best times to see the roses in bloom.

Our agencies offer stays in local houses—we recommend the end of April when you can help work the fields and pink roses. The Kelaat M'Gouna Rose Festival also takes place during this time. This popular festival lasts four days and includes a local handicraft and agricultural product fair. Retreat in local accommodation during your stay in the Valley of the Roses. Some offer gardens with views of the surrounding mountains and free bicycles for exploring the flower fields.
