Reviews          

I enjoyed the opportunity to undertake such an amazing route far from the tourist areas. Also, having a hard working and very knowledgeable guide who could give me a deep insight into Berber culture, organised every aspect of the trip excellently and was very helpful.
Mrs P, London.

Interesting trek, seemed like an excellently judged itinerary. Good company, excellent trip leaders, trekking cook and team.
Mr ML, Bristol

We had a great trek and overall the holiday and arrangements were superb- I think it was the best written briefing we have ever had.

A trek up Jebel Toubkal, 4,167m/13,671ft,  is the main, but by no means the only objective on this great trekking holiday. Whilst some may be content just to ‘bag’ North Africa’s highest peak, our unique High Atlas trekking itinerary avoids the busiest trails and immerses you in the land of the Berbers.

Leaving Marrakesh we make a short drive to a valley in the heart of the High Atlas to begin our traverse of the Toubkal Massif. We trek from the east through isolated valleys, crossing high passes and camping in high pastures or by rushing streams. In the village of Amsouzerte we enjoy the added comfort of a local gite (mountain refuge) before continuing our High Atlas trekking via the turquoise waters of Lac d’Ifni to cross the Tizi n’Ouanoumss pass at 3,664m/12,012ft.

Fit and acclimatised, the trek to Toubkal’s summit is now a straightforward climb, which rewards us with views over the High and Middle Atlas and occasionally the Sahara beyond. Over two more days trekking in the High Atlas we complete our traverse westward, enjoying a traditional Meshui feast and perhaps a hammam (steam bath) before leaving the trail and heading back to enjoy the sights and sounds of Marrakesh.

If you want to see the best of the Moroccan High Atlas, trekking to Toubkal with Mountain Kingdoms is the perfect way to do it. Call us now on 01453 844 400 to arrange an unforgettable Moroccan adventure.

In Morocco we use qualified Berber guides who are ideally placed to give you an insight into and information about their country. The Moroccan government closely controls the appointment of both mountain and town guides. During their training, guides complete courses in First Aid, Geography, History and the Natural Science of Morocco as well as testing their fitness.
Our Moroccan leaders are selected on the basis of their experience, levels of spoken English and helpfulness. Like the Berber culture from which they come, they are all very welcoming and have a love of showing you their country.

More Details

For a complete change of scene from the frenetic activity of Marrakesh, or after a tough mountain trek, the coastal town of Essaouia is a delightful place to relax. Its whitewashed buildings and city walls add to its calm ambience and a stroll along the ramparts or beach at sundown is an excellent way to unwind.
