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.
The Lawrence of Morocco map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.
Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.
When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
Philip and I thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
Thank you for your email. Philip and I thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
The riads we stayed in were excellent and we must mention Riad Cinnamon in particular as they were most helpful to us and were so obliging in every way.
Unfortunately nothing really went wrong on the holiday so no negative feedback to give ...
