Trek Itinery 

Day 1. UK flight to Marrakech and transfer to hotel


Day 2. The morning gives us further opportunity to explore this amazing city before having lunch. We then have a transfer of 1.5hr to the berber village of Imlil where we spend the night in a local Gite and make preparations for the trek.


Day 3. In the morning we meet our mule team and load our gear. After breakfast we begin slowly to make our way to Azib Tamsoult camp (2400m). On route we’ll pass through terraced fields, through walnut and cherry orchards and remote villages which gives us a great insight into berber life.


Day 4. Today is our acclimatisation day. Our aim for today is to trek to the summit of Aglizim (3500m). Once on top we get amazing views over the high Atlas before descending to our camp in the Mizane valley at the foot of Mount Toubkal (Neltner 3206mts). Camp or refuge.


 

Day 5. Summit day ! Early in the morning we make our attempt to the summit of Mount Toubkal (4167m), the highest peak in Northern Africa. Our route is straight forward but the views are anything but normal and make the journey incredibly worthwhile. Once on the summit the surrounding landscape of the high atlas mountains is quite breathtaking. From here we have unrestricted views in every direction from the Marrakesh plain to the High Atlas in the north and as far south as the Anti Atlas and the Sahara. After celebrations and pictures, we retrace out steps down mountain and head to Imlil for late afternoon.


Day 6 . After a good breakfast we take the drive back to Marrakesh. With time permitting there’s opportunity to once more explore the city.


Day 7. Flight back to UK.


Every effort will be made to keep to the above itinerary, but please appreciate that this is travel in a remote mountain region. Weather conditions, availability of porters and the health of team members can all contribute to changes in the programme. Our guides will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but please be prepared to be flexible if necessary.
