Completing a splendid circuit trek of Mount Toubkal (4167m) and including the opportunity to climb to its summit, this Moroccan walking holiday provides the best of the Atlas Mountains within just a week and a half. Offering varied and picturesque scenery, rugged trekking trails, lofty peaks and passes, along with the guarantee of a cheerful welcome from the Berber people, the Atlas Mountains of Morocco are the perfect choice for dedicated hikers and trekkers. Our trek takes us across the central spine of the Atlas Mountains, by way of several pretty Berber villages and the cobalt-blue Lake Ifni, to the Neltner Refuge below Toubkal. From here, a straightforward trail leads to the highest point in North Africa, Mount Toubkal, which commands far-reaching views across the Atlas and southwards to the Jebel Sahro ranges and the distant Sahara Desert. This spectacular short trekking holiday, which includes 2 nights in the vibrant city of Marrakech, gives a real taste of Morocco.


The Secret of Our Success on Toubkal.

We've been taking our clients walking, trekking and mountaineering for almost thirty years so we know the ingredients of a good guide!  Although the mountain is neither particularly high nor technically demanding the experience and knowledge of our Moroccan leaders can make a big difference to your chances of success when attempting Toubkal.  Those who are new to High Atlas trekking will take particular comfort in the presence of our experienced Moroccan guides, who we believe are the best in the business.

Is this holiday for you?

The maximum altitude attained on this trek is not great and we spend only one night at just above 3000 metres. This means that altitude acclimatisation is not usually a problem. However this trek does involve some days with a good deal of ascent and descent and one or two of the days (although broken with leisurely lunches in the shade) are quite long. Additionally, the summer months in the High Atlas can be hot and July and August particularly so. This does have an effect on trekking performance. For most of the trek we follow well established trails between valleys and villages which are suitable for mules and very straightforward for trekkers. On the ascent of Toubkal and whilst trekking up to the passes on our route, we will encounter zig-zag trails on scree. Because this is a short trip we have only given grade 5.
