This guide will help you plan an amazing New Year’s celebration in Morocco, filled with insider recommendations and tips from a local expert.

Why Choose Morocco for New Year’s

Perfect Weather

weather in Morocco is perfect even in the cold months of December and January, it is still a pleasant and cool climate, sunny and warm during the day, varies significantly from region to region. Coastal cities like Rabat and Essaouira enjoy mild weather with average temperatures ranging from 15°C to 20°C. However, going to the Atlas Mountains and Sahara desert is much colder, especially at night.

Diverse Attractions and Festive Atmosphere

Morocco is a mix of cultures, offering a unique blend of traditional and modern celebrations. Whether you’re looking for a clubbing and nightlife party, a relaxing mountain retreat, or a unique desert experience, Morocco has it all. The festive vibes during New Year’s are alive, with locals and visitors joining in the celebrations.

Top Destinations in Morocco for New Year’s Celebrations


The Red City is the most popular city in Morocco and the most visited, Marrakech is a suitable place to spend the end of the year for its luxury hotels, and high-quality riads. You can take advantage of your time in Marrakech to do many unique adventures, such as a royal hot air balloon ride with breakfast on board. also, many luxury hotels and riads offer gala dinners with live music, dancing, and fireworks.

Sahara Desert: 

For a truly unique and memorable celebration. Consider spending New Year’s Eve in Morocco’s Sahara desert, Our New Year’s Eve tour packages provide the perfect opportunity to enjoy the splendor of starlight in the world’s largest hot desert. In this more spiritual environment, you can meditate on your recent past. As well as your hopes and wishes for the future, while enjoying the dazzling light show offered by nature itself. One of the best activities to spend New Year in Morocco is the Camel Ride into the desert to watch the magical sunset over the dunes. Spend the night in a traditional desert camp, with music, dancing, and stargazing.

Family-Friendly New Year’s Activities

Cooking Classes: are one the best activities that all families enjoy and find it to be fun and informative for kids, i organise cooking classes with local families inside their houses, for the experience to be authentic and allow the kids to immerse with the culture, cooking classes can be hosted in many places, I organize it in Fes, Marrakech, and Rose valley.

Storytelling Evenings: We recognize the universal appeal of storytelling and we started to curate intimate storytelling sessions, specifically designed for our clients and curious travelers. we successfully organized storytelling sessions in traditional Riads in the historic medina where visitors travel in time in a cozy atmosphere for guests to immerse themselves in the narrative tradition of Morocco.

Story telling in moroccostorytelling in Morocco is an ancient art and tradition, deeply rooted in Moroccan culture, and continues to thrive in the heart of the city, captivating both locals and tourists alike,  the stories are incredible, educational, and funny, it is an integral part of Moroccan culture. As Marrakech has evolved into a major tourist destination, the tradition of storytelling has been meticulously curated to bridge the gap between the rich Moroccan heritage and the diverse array of international visitors seeking to experience it.

Craft Workshops with Moroccan Artisans: We curate workshops with artisans in the souks of Marrakech, this activity is fun and engaging for kids and families, and one of the highlights of these experiences is the opportunity to learn from three master Moroccan artisans, each specializing in a distinct traditional craft.

Artisans workshopThe first one is the art of Zouak painting, a technique used to adorn wooden ceilings and furniture with vibrant Moroccan geometric patterns. The second master is a skilled leather craftsman who guides participants in demonstrating the time-honored methods of crafting delicate leather goods. The third one is Zellige Moroccan mosaic where participants can get hands-on with mosaic art, piecing together colorful tiles to create stunning Zellige designs.

Atlas Mountains Cultural Day: Another activity a Family enjoys is a cultural visit to the Atlas Mountains and Berber villages. It’s a short and easy trip that allows you to explore the pure nature of Morocco and visit many famous spots. The journey to the Atlas Mountains alone can take your breath away as you admire the changing environment along the way.

Our guide Bachir made everything so nice and amazing Bachir would go out of his way to make you comfortable and it was a pleasure to be in his company, we couldn’t have asked for a better time in Morocco. Bachir was very knowledgeable, and he answered all of our questions. Bachir would make stops for us to take pictures if we needed them, and he was always on time. The car was clean, and we always had water. If you can think it Bachir can make it happen. Thank you Bachir for everything.
