PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE AND FITNESS


For all of our trips a good level of fitness is required due to the activities being in the mountain environment, often at altitude.

 

For our summer trekking and winter trips (e.g. a standard ascent of Toubkal) it is recommended that you have had at the very least summer walking experience.

 

For our technical mountaineering and climbing trips a good base of mountaineering and climbing experience is required. Please outline your experience in our booking form. The final trip itinerary and course content will be left to the discretion of the guide.

 

Please make any medical conditions or dietary needs known when you book.

 

 

MEDICAL AND SAFETY


The safety of our clients is of paramount concern to The Mountain People guides. Inevitably, there is some risk inherent in mountaineering and Morocco is limited in its rescue facilities. This risk is minimised by the guide’s knowledge, experience and resources and the clients’ co-operation.

 

All guides hold valid first aid certificates, have the relevant qualifications and have years of experience of winter mountaineering in Scotland and the High Atlas.

 

 

TRAVEL AND RESCUE INSURANCE 


We require all our clients to arrange their own medical, travel and repatriation insurance in advance of the trip. We recommend the following providers:

 

 

Please ensure your insurance covers you for helicopter rescue and if relevant mountaineering up to 4,000m.
