What to Expect

Join a small group on a memorable visit to the impressive Atlas Mountain peaks south of Marrakesh. You’ll want to be in good shape and accustomed to travel at high altitudes. We’ll be tackling hours of trekking on rocky terrain before reaching the highest summit, 4,167 meters above sea level. On a clear day, you can see the Atlantic to the west and the Sahara to the east. Along the way you’ll meet local Berber villagers, hear their stories, and learn about their unique way of life in this remote and magical land.

Have questions? Here's the most frequently asked.

We have rated our Toubkal Climb as ‘Tough’ (2/3) due to the fact we are walking for 2 days consecutively, covering approximately 26km at altitude. Our itinerary has been designed to maximise our chances of success and our team will be there supporting you all the way to the summit – it is worth remembering it is not a race and one top tip you should follow is to trek at slow steady pace.

During the Toubkal climb you will be staying in either the Mouflon or Neltner mountain refuge depending on availability. The rooms are basic shared dorms with bunk beds. There’s a common area to relax in the evening and chat with other climbers from around the world.

Mount Toubkal is a non-technical summit – you don’t have to be an expert climber, but you do need to have a good level of fitness and an appetite for adventure! The fitter you are and the more you train prior to the challenge, the more you will enjoy it.

Meals on the trek are cooked by the Berber muleteers. The food is fresh and healthy. Example meals:

  • Breakfast: Jam, bread, cookies, fruit, juice, butter, coffee, milk
  • Lunch: salad, tomatoes, carrots, lentils, beans, rice or pasta, fish (sardines, tuna), seasonal fruit
  • Dinner: Soup, classic Morooccan tajine, couscous, olives, nuts, fruit

Our Toubkal Climb is led by a qualified and experienced local mountain guide and supported by a team of experienced staff. This includes logistical backup in the village of Imlil and local muleteers and an expedition cook who is also an experienced guide. All are from the local communities and each has a lifetime of experience of life and travel in this part of the Atlas mountains.
