Marrakech is a year-round destination to visit, but temperatures and climate can change seasonally. Spring is a good time to discover the city, the temperatures are pleasant and the heat bearable. It is also interesting to go to Morocco in winter in order to find a little bit of the Mediterranean sun. During July and August, temperatures quickly approach 35 degrees, even more in the afternoon, a perfect climate for those who enjoy the heat and want to return from their vacation with a tan. We advise you to take good suncream, a hat et and your best sunglasses and you are ready to visit Marrakech in summer.

The great advantage of Marrakech is also the ease of getting there. From the United Kingdom, you will find many flights to Marrakech for only three hours. Are you a Flightgift cardholder?

Onward for a quad bike ride, heading to the desert

If you're staying a few days in Morocco, we highly recommend going on a desert tour! An experience not to be missed!
