Morocco expeditions
  • Unforgettable mountain scenery and spectacular views
  • Tackle daunting peaks dotted with Berber villages
  • Summit Jebel Toubkal, Morocco's highest mountain
  • Push yourself mentally and physically at high altitude
  • Get lost in the colourful souks of mystical Marrakech

This challenge offers a tough, yet incredibly rewarding trek combining unforgettable mountain scenery with the splendour and colour of Morocco and its traditional people, the Berbers.

Morocco is a country full of mysticism and mythology, a diverse and spectacular land. In the midst of it all lies the High Atlas mountain range, home to Jebel Toubkal; at 4,167m high one of the tallest peaks in North Africa.

The western range features several peaks over 3,900m – two of which we encounter. Beginning in Marrakech, we venture into Berber country to discover the majesty of the mountains.

Each day, we will spend between four and eight hours trekking across the peaks and through remote Berber villages. A good degree of fitness is required, particularly given the changeable weather conditions. The climb is not technical, however, you will be trained to use crampons and ice axes.   The weather is unpredictable and can make the going very difficult.

The challenge ends in the vibrant city of Marrakech, where the southern tribesmen and Berber villagers bring their goods to the souks.
