Toubkal Trekking Tour - 8 days

With this tour, you will experience the exciting spice sellers and souks of Marrakech, journey into the high Atlas mountains and explore the High Atlas before trekking to the summit of North Africa’s highest mountain, Mount Toubkal.  We have programmed a trek which will allow you not only to see the village life of the Berbers in the High Atlas, but which will allow a steady acclimatisation before ascending to the summit of Toubkal at 4167m. Much of the trekking route is on trails between the villages which are suitable for our mules. This means that the trail is not difficult underfoot for trekkers. The final ascent day follows zigzag trails on scree. Some of the days are quite long, with quite a bit of ascent and descent, so trekking poles are recommended. This trip is perfect for those who want to trek with the mountain Berber people, and with mules carrying their luggage, while taking in incredible varied landscape.

Day 1:    Marrakech
 
 

Upon arrival to Marrakech, you will be transferred to your hotel. You are free for the rest of the day to explore the city. Marrakech is magical. Exotic, full of history and overwhelming, it is the most famous and visited city in Morocco. Know as the Red city mainly because of the predominant color of its buildings, it has been Morocco's capital in the past, represents the most important Imperial city and boasts a perfect location right at the foot of the High Atlas mountains. On this day, we strongly recommend a visit of the amazing hectic Jemaa El Fna which comes alive after dark. You will experience a memorable mix of smells, sounds and sights. For dinner, why not try one of the outdoor food stalls which offer a variety of food and for the most adventurous, you can try the snails or the cooked sheep head. You will spend this first night in Marrakech.
