Day 1 - transfer to Imlil
We'll collect you from Marrakesh Airport and whisk you off to the Berber village of Imlil at 1,740m where we'll spend the night in either Imlil Lodge or Kasbah Imlil.
If you arrive earlier in the day, you can go and take a look around the fascinating city. We run two transfers from the airport, one at 11am and the other at 3pm. These are included in the price. Or we can do a custom up at anytime for a £10 surcharge.
You'll be able to take in your first glimpses of the spectacular High Atlas Mountains over dinner.
Day 2 - trek to Refuge de Toubkal
Our trek begins!
Heading along the Mizane Valley, we'll pass the village of Aroumd with its backdrop of mountains, before climbing steadily to the shrine of Sidi Charamouch, a haven for pilgrims. You have to try a fresh orange juice from one of the stalls!
From here on the trail climbs gradually, zig zagging its way up to the snow-line and the refuge at 3,206m and the basecamp for Toubkal. We'll set up camp for the night ready for our ascent tomorrow.
Day 3 - Jebel Toubkal Summit
This is the biggie!
We'll get an early start for our ascent of Jebel Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa! Our route takes us up the South Cirque, crossing the stream above the refuge. Although the walking is relatively straightforward, the scree and the altitude can make it feel quite tough going, but we promise those views from the top will be worth it!
Once we reach the 4,167m summit marked by its iconic iron pillar we'll be be blown away by the view. We'll be able to see right across the Marrakesh Plain to the High Atlas mountains of the north and, if we're lucky, as far as the Anti-Atlas and the Sahara Desert.
After a few summit selfies and taking in that gorgeous scenery, we'll retrace our steps back down the mountain, and down to Imlil, passing back through Sidi Charamouch.
Back at Imlil we transfer to Marrakesh, where we stay the night in a basic but comfortable riad.
Day 4 - transfer to the airport and return home
We say a sad farewell to Morocco and our new adventure buddies as we transfer to the airport for our flights home, after an incredible weekend adventure.
