The Atlas Mountains and Oualidia can also be visited year-round, although it does get cold in winter, with averages in the late teens. Summers months in Marrakesh can be unbearably hot, especially in the months of July and August. Late autumn (September to November) and early spring (February to April) are the best time to visit, with daytime temperatures in the 20s and low 30s Celsius.
From the bustling souks of Marrakech to the breath-taking scenic beauty of the Berber villages of the Atlas Mountains and the sleepy fishing town of Oualidia – this brief taste of Morocco is an ideal Honeymoon for those seeking an enticing combination of culture and relaxation.
Begin your stay in Marrakech, a great labyrinth of narrow streets, where colourful market stalls and tall minarets are set against the backdrop of snow-clad peaks of the Atlas Mountains. Marvel at the gatherings of singers, herbalists, preachers, storytellers and vendors as you gain a fascinating insight into the North African ways of life. As well as the endless souks to explore there are beautiful gardens to discover and after you can relax with a traditional hammam treatment.
From Marrakech you will transfer to the Atlas Mountains; where the narrow streets of Marrakech give way to snow-capped peaks and small Berber villages. Rising from the Atlantic near Agadir and stretching through Morocco to the Algerian border in the east, the range is some 400 miles (650kms) in length. At over 4,000 metres (13,000 feet) the highest summits match those of the Alps. Home to the Berbers, whose hospitality is world-famous and extremely genuine, these mountains have a huge variety of scenery, mix of cultures and a varied terrain, making it perfect for trekking. Temperatures here are lower than Marrakech, offering a welcoming respite from the heat and a comfortable environment for setting out on foot, bike or mule to see the traditional way of life here.
After three nights in the Atlas Mountains you will then head west to the coast and to Oualidia for a relaxing finale. The drive to the coast takes around 4 hours as you'll pass by Argan trees, from which Argan oil is produced. Here you will experience the wild coast with impressive forts, friendly souks and delicious seafood. During your three-night stay here, you can choose to relax by the beach or pool or take to the sea with a variety of water sports. The tranquil lagoon here is a haven for wildlife with many birds who flock here throughout the year. We’ve included a romantic, private picnic on the beach where you can listen to the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean whilst savouring gourmet food. After, a fishing boat will take you to visit the local Oyster beds, from where Oysters have been collected since the 1950.
