The best time to travel to Morocco is Spring or Autumn, when the temperatures are at their most pleasant. In the summer, temperatures can be stifling and winter does not show Morocco's charms so well, especially as it can rain in the North. If you handle heat well or if you go to the mountains, you can also travel between May and September.

Morocco is made of perfect hiking ground, and you will also be able to enjoy doing some climbing. You will tread the soil of the High Atlas, one of the most beautiful mountain chains in the world, and you will climb the Jebel Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa. Embark preferably in Spring or in Autumn.

Morocco knows how to seduce those who wants to just relax on the beach. Enjoy relaxing moments on the long Agadir beach or go on an adventure to Tangier. Of course, you will not miss out on Marabout beach either. Travel between April and October to profit from the hottest temperatures.

Try out white water rafting or kayaking in the Atlas mountains, and learn to surf in the surroundings of Essaouira. You can also go on a traditional camel walk in the Sahara and sleep in the desert. These activities are done preferably in Spring and Autumn. And why not ski in Morocco? Oukaïmeden resort, not far from Marrakech, welcomes skiiers throughout the year when there is heavy snowfall, with a peak season between December and March.

One thing you can't miss during your trip to Morocco is discovering the splendour of the Sahara. Leave on a trek to Figuig, in the east of the country, or practise sandboarding at Erg Chebbi and meet nomadic Berbers. Prioritise the months from October to May to discover the Moroccan desert.
