OVERVIEW

Winter time on Toubkal can be a trekker’s paradise. The trails are quiet, and the peaks of the High Atlas are snow-capped and stunning in the sunlight.

This 5-day group challenge takes us to the summit of North Africa’s highest mountain, Mount Toubkal at 4,167m. We start our 3 days of trekking in the foothills of the High Atlas, where picturesque valleys lined with juniper trees offer us shade on our descent into the Mizane Valley.

We spend an afternoon at Base Camp learning how to use ice axes and crampons, before making our final climb to the summit. It can be a challenging climb, depending on the snow level, however, we are rewarded with unrivaled views from the magnificent Mount Toubkal of the surrounding peaks, with Marrakech to the North, and the vast expanse of the Sahara to the South. Our final day will be spent exploring Marrakech’s souks and sites before coming together for a celebratory dinner.

Once you register, you will receive access to your trip App, which includes all challenge documentation you'll need to prepare you for your challenge. If you are fundraising, we will sort out all charity formalities for you, and we also offer pre-challenge training weekends in the UK where you can meet our trek leaders and test our your kit and fitness!
