Guided Climb of Mount Toubkal

Trek to the Summit of North Africa’s Highest Peak

Private Expeditions for Individuals and Groups

7-Day Suggested Itinerary – Can be Tailored to Your Needs

/Summit-of-Mt-Toubkal
Encounter the thrill of climbing Mount Toubkal in Morocco. Explore ancient villages, taste exquisite food and experience the famous arab hospitality of the locals as you adventure into the Atlas Mountains.

Mt Toubkal is the highest peak in North Africa at 4,167m. It’s an exciting and achievable challenge. Our experienced guides can make this a safe and memorable journey, allowing you more time to enjoy the experience.

Leaving the hustle and bustle of Marrakech behind, the trek starts in Imlil and follows a windy track on scree slopes. You will pass through ancient Berber villages, offering sweet fruit and nourishing tagines, a most welcome treat for hikers. Your limits will be tested as you scramble around boulders and over scree, dodging the local traffic of cattle and mules as you delve deeper into the mountains.

The shrine of Sidi Chamharouch is an interesting stop en route and allows another chance for trekkers to recharge. After this, you will climb steadily up to the Toubkal refuge, the overnight shelter where hikers will rest, preparing for summiting the next day. The next day commences early, with a dramatic hike to the summit. Revel in panoramic views of the High Atlas Mountains and reap your reward on the summit of Toubkal.

Welcome to Morocco, let the adventure begin

Trip Grading

Toubkal is considered to be moderate/demanding. We trek into a fairly remote part of Morocco at higher altitudes than you are maybe used to. There are a variety of steep ascents and descents, and we sometimes trek for up to 8 hours per day. As with most things a certain degree of fitness will make this trip more enjoyable.

As always on our treks there is plenty of staff and we can accommodate everyone’s trekking pace. We appreciate that in a group there will be many different speeds of walker and we don’t ever want you to feel like you are holding up a group or being held up. Having plenty of guides and porters allow for us to change itineraries and pace easily and it is very easy to accommodate every trekker.
