Weather during the Four Seasons

Morocco in general has a pleasant sunshine all round the year and each season has its own specialty.


Spring (March to May) – During this period, the region is particularly warm and pleasant. The trees are in bloom and the mountain peaks are still covered with snow, making them look captivating.


Summer (June to September) – The sea breeze keeps the hot summer temperature under control in some parts while other parts may experience high temperatures. The cool and exquisite climate of the mountains in summer is apt for a rejuvenating holiday experience. Holidaying in Ifrane valley in summer is an absolute choice with its green pastures, dense woodlands and rapid waterfalls offering a great escape from the hot weather.


Autumn (October to November) – This is a suitable season to carry out a restful retreat as temperatures fall in land. The winter rains arrive and the climate is pleasant enough to have a swim in the ocean.


Winter (December to February) - Mild temperatures are experienced on the coasts all round the year due to the Atlantic and Mediterranean climate that prevails there. Whereas in the uplands, winter is damp and cold. Skiing and swimming are the best recreational activities to be carried out in this season.
