Things you need to know

When is the best time to go?

You can climb in Morocco year round, but remember, it gets hot! The best time for climbing is in the spring.

What's a typical itinerary?

  • You’ll meet and depart from Marrakech in the morning
  • Plan on leaving the climbing location around 3:00pm or 4:00pm, and arriving back in Marrakech around 6:00pm

What about bad weather?

Because it’s the desert, you’re not going to have to worry about too much rain! Seriously, though, the heat is to be respected.

Group sizes and pricing?

Group sizes are usually between 1 – 6 people with one instructor. Also, remember that the costs decrease as the group grows, so it’s the perfect opportunity to climb with friends and family.

Getting there

Most all of the climbing is done from Marrakech (RAK), which is about 2 hours from the Atlas Mountains. Most guiding services offer shuttle services.

What to expect when you're climbing in Morocco

Have an amazing rock climbing experience that fits perfectly into your Moroccan vacation. Only two hours outside of Marrakech, you can discover the picturesque, miniature gorge of Ain Belmusk and the beautiful, hidden treasure of Zuhelika. Both of these gems are tucked away next to quiet Moroccan villages, just off the beaten path.

If you’re after higher elevations, consider Oukaimeden and enjoy its breathtaking views. Looking for a serious workout? Try a day at High Atlas.

Your guide will take you on routes that meet your expectations and will ensure your group has the best experience possible!
