What is it like to visit Morocco in winter?

The coldest period in Marrakech is between mid-December and the end of February, where you can have what we call a 2 in 1 experience, meaning you have great possibilities to see both the Sahara Desert dunes and snow at the same time. in the Atlas Mountains for a good part of the journey between Marrakech, Ouarzazate and Merzouga.
The illustration below shows how the average temperature of Marrakech is throughout the year and as we can see it varies a lot, so it is essential to observe what the averages are before preparing your suitcase.

For those planning a trip to Morocco, especially for Marrakech, it is natural to think of the desert landscapes of the Atlas and the world famous Sahara Desert, but have you ever thought of seeing snow on the same trip?
During the journey we traveled towards the Sahara, we passed through several places that remind us of the landscapes of other countries, especially during the stops along the Atlas Mountains and the famous Tizi n’Tichka road that connects Marrakech to Ouarzazate.

Despite being located on the African continent, which is mostly hot with high temperatures during spring and summer, Morocco is located in the far north of the continent and very close to Spain, in a region where temperatures are quite varied over the 12 months of the year.

Some of our associates have already experienced this experience and you can check it from the words of those who visited Morocco in winter:
