Spring and autumn are generally the best times to visit Morocco, as the weather is warm but pleasant, unlike the cold temperatures and snow of winter and the scorching heat of summer. The coastal regions can be visited year-round; in the winter they are pleasantly mild, while in the summer they bask in temperatures hovering around the mid-20Cs. The High Atlas Mountains can also be visited year-round, although it does get cold in winter. The summer may still be a bit hot to embark on any long-distance hikes, but if the heat doesn’t bother you then conditions are fine any time between April and October. Outside these months there is snow on the peaks, which makes hiking more dangerous but creates some spectacular panoramas.

Month-by-month guide to traveling in Morocco

A joke in the square, Marrakech, Morocco

Visiting Morocco in January - February

A great time to visit if you prefer to travel away from crowds, allowing you to see Moroccans going about their daily life more authentically than during the hotter months. It is generally sunny and mild, but there is the chance of rain (good for wildflowers), and snow in the mountains. The desert is perfect for visiting now, but gets very cold at night.

My favorite time to visit Morocco is October because it's the perfect temperature to be able to explore the cities comfortably, as well as hike in the mountains. October is also date season in the desert region, which is when Skoura, Erfoud and the surrounding valleys are at their most lush and vibrant.
