Skiing in Morocco

In recent years Morocco has joined the ranks of the world’s off-beat skiing destinations. Yet it’s no also-ran: Morocco’s main resort Oukaimeden (one hour’s drive from Marrakech) lies 3,273 metres above sea level: high enough to ensure snow from January to the end of March. With good infrastructure and some excellent runs, you have to pinch yourself to realise you’re in sub-tropical Africa. Ifrane, in the Middle Atlas, is 1,650 metres above sea level and has a variety of ski runs, as well as Alpine chalets and cedar forests.

Review of Hotel Les Deux Tours, Marrakech holiday Morocco

A big thank you for sorting out our honeymoon.

Hi Max
We'd just like to say a big thank you for sorting out our honeymoon. We had a wonderful time. Everything worked perfectly. We loved both of the hotels (especially Les Deux Tours - our own swimming pool!) and all of the connections happened perfectly.


Thanks again.

We know Morocco intimately

Max Lawrence - MD Lawrence of Morocco

When travelling around Morocco it is not (contrary to common belief) necessary for women to ‘cover up’ out of respect for local modesty traditions. Morocco is a very mixed society with Moroccans who dress as westerners and more traditional families dressing in a more traditional way.

The only areas of the country where it is advisable for women to cover up their legs and shoulders would be in some parts of the High Atlas Mountains (very remote areas) where the locals are rarely visited by foreigners. It is highly unlikely that you will be visiting these areas on any holiday arranged by Lawrence of Morocco.
