The High Atlas are teetering on the edge of winter! I got back from guiding a six-day trek in the Toubkal Massif for Gemini Outdoor, a Nordic Walking company based in the UK. It was a pleasure to run the trip with Gemini’s founder Steve Ellis and the group that he brought together for the trip were great fun.

 

Well done again everyone for tackling North Africa’s biggest peak!

 

Conditions: please make sure you either have the relevant winter experience or you hire a guide, as there is snow on a few of the more exposed sections of the Toubkal south col route!
