INTRODUCTION


begOnce the winter blanket of snow has gone the High Atlas becomes one of the premier summer trekking destinations outside of the European Alps. If you are looking to experience a non-western culture and cuisine, a beautiful arid landscape with the green oases that fill in the valleys then the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco are yours for the trekking!

 

We offer a variety of trekking options around the Toubkal and Mgoun regions. Our treks include:

  • A good mix of Moroccan and more western cuisine from our local cooks.
  • Clean and comfortable accommodation in the mountains (gites and refuges).
  • Mule support to carry the heavier bags for the journey.
  • A fully qualified guide (International Mountain Leader or Summer Mountain Leader).
  • Transport to and from Marrakech

 

 

ITINERARIES


What about the programme? Well that depends on you! There are spectacular treks in the valleys surrounding Toubkal, so our general itinerary there would include three days trekking in at least two of the beautiful valley systems. If summiting Toubkal was part of the trip then we recommend a minimum three days to allow a good amount of time to acclimatise and enjoy the mountains. We are also happy to offer summer ascents of Mgoun (4068m). Here are some sample trekking itineraries:
