Thanks to the Atlas mountains and the presence of the Atlantic, Morocco weather is always perfect somewhere at all times of year.

Morocco climate

“Darren expertly navigates the territory in a Toyota Land Cruiser and his Moroccan wife knows the culture so you learn quite a bit about Morocco while taking great pictures and visiting great locations under blue skies and moderate temperatures (in February).”

Morris, holiday 2013

Many people when arriving here are always surprised one way or the other with regards to Morocco weather. They expect more winter warmth in the Atlas mountains and are sometimes surprised that in the height of summer it’s much much cooler on the coast than for example in Marrakesh. Because of the diversity of terrain, Morocco’s weather changes very quickly once you head inland or away from the Atlas. You can expect soaring summer temperatures of 40 degrees during the summer and sometimes even more in the desert regions but much less once on the coast and near the Atlas mountains where it’s usually no more 25 degrees. Essaouira has a temperate Morocco climate and all year round with temperatures of between 18-25 degrees. Morocco’s winter climate ensures that from November to March locations close to the High Atlas such as the Dades Valley and Todra Gorge will feel much cooler. All the hotels we use have air conditioning units to heat rooms at this time of year.  Away from the Atlas you can expect winter temperatures of around 20 degrees.  A rainy season doesn’t really exist in the middle to southern parts of Morocco but November to March receives more rainfall than other months, mostly falling in the evening and clearing for the days. If you have flexibility about when to travel, we can advise when the best time of the year is to arrive for specific activities.
