Is this trip right for you
  • Don’t let the heat keep you from exploring the world! Summer temperatures can be extremely high in Morocco (over 40°C), which can make things uncomfortable. It’s important to use sun protection, wear layers to combat the heat, and drink plenty of water.
  • In 2023, Ramadan will take place from 22 March to 20 April. Travelling during this holy month can be a rewarding cultural experience, however some regular services may not be available during the daytime, such as restaurants or coffee bars, and occasionally travel can be disrupted by events. Your leader will adjust the itinerary accordingly, but please consider your travel arrangements carefully before booking travel for this period.
  • As Morocco has a tipping culture, travellers are expected to tip small amounts for most services, so please be prepared. Your trip leader and the 'Money Matters' section of our Essential Trip Information will help to provide you with some suggestions as to what amounts are appropriate.
  • Although you shouldn’t expect any aggressive selling techniques in Morocco, please be aware that you may be approached by shop owners and street vendors offering their goods to you on regular occasions.
  • We've sourced our accommodation very carefully and picked the best possible hotels in line with the Intrepid style of travel, but please note that service and accommodation in Morocco may differ from western standards.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • Is winter a good time to take this tour and visit Morocco? What can I expect?

    As a desert country, Morocco can have extreme weather. Winter (November to March) can be cold, particularly in the mountains or near the desert. Night temperatures can drop to 5 degrees Celsius or less.

    We recommend bringing a good sleeping bag, thermals, scarf, gloves and a warm jacket for travel in winter. Some of our guesthouses/hotels are unable to supply heating as this would be a major financial and environmental strain. It is also a case of energy supply and timing provisions, which is limited in some places. Please be prepared for cold showers.

    On this trip, you are going to cross the High Atlas Mountains through the impressive Tizi n’Tichka pass. During winter months this part of Morocco may experience snowstorms and it is possible for Tizi n’Tichka pass to become impassable, usually just for a day until authorities have a chance to clear the road. In the event of a snowstorm, your itinerary may require changing. In any case, you will be adequately informed.

  • What do I need to travel to Morocco?

    A visa is not required for a stay of up to 90 days. All passengers traveling to Morocco need to complete a health declaration form at least 72 hours before the flight. It is also advisable to check travel advisories or the nearest embassy and consulate regarding visa requirements before you travel.

  • How expensive is Morocco for travel?

    The currency used in Morocco is the Moroccan dirham (MAD), and one MAD equates to USD 0.10, making it a fairly cheap country to travel in. The average hotel price in Morocco for a couple is MAD428 (USD 42), and daily meals average around MAD132 (USD 13). Local transport costs around MAD70 (USD 6.82), so a trip to Morocco for two people for one week would cost an average of MAD6,272 (USD 614)

  • How many days would I need to travel across Morocco?

    Morocco is a country rich in culture and history, and if you want to see and experience everything this amazing country has to offer, you will need at least three weeks. If you have limited time, a week is plenty of time to travel from Casablanca to Marrakesh and take in some of the country's most iconic highlights.

  • What are some things I need to consider while traveling in Morocco?

    Morocco is a highly conservative country, so it is important to dress appropriately. Cover your upper body and knees at all times. It is also important that you cover your head when visiting mosques. If you go shopping in morocco, do not hesitate to haggle. Haggling is an integral part of Moroccan culture and is expected in most places.
