Where you will find Snow in Morocco?
People mostly know Morocco of its Heat and the desert but few of them might know about the snowfall on some parts of it. Morocco has its snow destinations in its Atlas mountains near not very far from Marrakech. There are in fact two major places one is Oukaimeden, which is called to be near to Marrakech and the other famous skiing resort is near Ifrane.
If you are intended to explore Snow in Morocco, these two places are for you to get the maximum charms of Snowy Morocco. What important is to plan everything in advance. You are heading towards the snowy destination so you should take the important measures first. The advance booking to your resorts is possible if you contact the party through your travel service providers.
My visit to Oukaimeden was so pleasant and brought me so many lessons to tell you in advance. If you are heading towards your destination from Marrakech, it is almost 50 km and will take less than two hours to get there. If you need to get to the Skiing resort, Ourika Valley can lead you the right way to the 2,800 meters altitude heights of Morocco. It is absolutely the very finest place in Morocco to have your holidays full of charms.
Now come to the other place, Ifrane. It is called a mini Switzerland for travelers who visit the place from all across the world. I visited Marrakech and then to Fez to reach Ifrane, it is famous as the coldest place in Morocco even round the year. Sometimes people want to dissociate this part of Morocco from the country because of the very different nature of it. If you are traveling to Morocco’s this part, you should take the knowledge that your family can suffer the very cold conditions in Ifrane because it is extremely cold and get the lowest temperatures.
If you want to get your kids with you on trip to Ifrane, you should pack for them accordingly.
Activities in the Coldest Destinations in Morocco:
Morocco has a diversity of activities depends on the nature and the conditions of the place you are visiting. Marrakech may offer you activities suited for the mainland and metropolitan type, but ofcourse the beaches and the mountains have different types of activities to offer. In Mountains like Ifrane and Oukaimeden, you can have the Skiing activity, treck with your family with the proper trekking kits and warm clothes.
In Oukmaiden, you will have a wonderful experience with the lift car service which will bring you to experience the scenic views from the heights. Don’t miss the opportunity to sit on the chair lifts in Oukmaiden. The thing to care about is that kids are not allowed to sit with you anyway. You have to keep your kids on the safeguard and take the pleasures of the activity. You have to cover yourself from head to toe to avoid any cold effect and be mentally ready to get a wonderful ride in Morocco.
After roaming in the coldest destinations in Morocco, I would recommend you to stay some days on the heavenly beaches in Morocco and shop, eat in Marrakech. It will give you a different impact of Morocco and you will have the best and diverse memories of your Morocco trip I’m sure. Morocco for me is still a very gracious place to be on the vacations.
