Entry requirements

Travel to Morocco for German nationals

In order to travel to Morocco, German nationals require a passport valid for six more months on the date of entry. It is not possible to enter using only a German ID card. German nationals can travel to Morocco for tourism and business without a visa for up to 90 days.

Nationals of other countries: please contact your embassy to find out which travel documents are necessary for travel to Morocco.

Morocco has very strict laws for currency exchange transactions. Foreign currency valued at 100,000 Dirham or more must be declared. In general, Moroccan Dirham cannot be taken into or out of the country. Nevertheless, there is currently a tolerance limit of carried currency of 2,000 Dirham for foreigners and Moroccan nationals. Air drones of any kind may not enter Morocco. Further information regarding the entry of goods and up-to-date currency rules can be obtained at the Moroccan customs office and the Moroccan foreign ministry. The possession of illegal drugs, even in tiny amounts, is punishable by imprisonment of up to ten years as well as hefty fines in Morocco.

Vaccination

No vaccinations are mandatory for travel to Morocco from Germany. The German Foreign Office recommends that travelers check standard immunizations according to the current list provided by the Robert-Koch-Institut for children and adults before any trip and to ensure they are up-to-date. (please see www.rki.de). For adults, standard immunizations include those against tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), polio (infantile paralysis, if applicable), measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), influenza, and pneumococci. For travel, vaccination against hepatitis A is also recommended.
Additional information can be found on the German foreign office webpage.

Health

It is recommended to consume water from sealed bottles only.

Level of difficulty / participation requirements

With the exception of the MGoun tour, all tours are suitable for all nature and travel enthusiasts who enjoy hiking. Average fitness levels are sufficient, and no special fitness training is needed in preparation for your trip. The hikes will include some unpaved paths and screes (we recommend ankle-high hiking boots). Our daily hikes will not exceed four to five hours. Depending on the surface conditions, we will occasionally have the opportunity to ride mules. Additionally, we may make use of an accompanying vehicle on parts of our hiking routes, as needed.

In general, you should meet the following criteria: good physical and mental health, average fitness level, tolerance and team spirit, and readiness to do without some conveniences.
Participation in MGoun tours requires you to have an average to good walking fitness. Accommodation will be provided in mountain cabins, multi-bed rooms with clean communal amenities, and, on occasion, accommodation in tents.

Accommodation

Depending on the booked tour, accommodation will be provided at varying standards. If hotels are included, they have been personally chosen by us with care. The standard may not always match European expectations, but the hotels are charming, the rooms are clean, and – above all – the hotel provides en-suite bathrooms, which is quite a luxury in this rural hiking region.

However, despite all the planning that went into booking the accommodation: You are spending your vacation in the most rural parts of Morocco. I would like to ask you to bear with me in the case that some improvisation is necessary or not everything is perfect.

Alcohol

In the entire valley, no alcoholic beverages are sold. However, you may bring your own alcoholic beverages in small amounts from Marrakesh.
