Moroccan Weather and Climate conditions During the summer months, heading to the highlands to go hiking is a great way to escape the heat, and get some good exercise. During the spring in the mountains, for example, the wildflowers bloom. Morocco is great to travel as the year-round wonderland it is. In Winter and Spring you can head to the desert, among others options, and in Summer and Autumn the climate of the High Atlas, for instance, is comparable to that of the Southern Alps in Europe, but with less moisture at night. It's hot in the bottom of the upper valleys, but we always find the cool shade of a walnut or near a river… While heading to the Middle Atlas you can find great nature walks and all sorts of leisure, guided through the nice and cool areas to visit. And of course, there are the Atlantic Ocean and northern Mediterranean shores and many spots where to experiment the different seasons in the Kingdom of Morocco.
