Morocco Toubkal Trek private

Walking in Morocco in the High Atlas Mountains is a rewarding experience especially when you make it to the summit of Mount Toubkal. In summer it is a so called walking mountain; just a good condition and a good spirit will do. In winter time with snow high up in the mountains more mountaineering experience is needed. Departure any day you like. Tour starts from Marrakech with a private transfer (1h30) to the Atlas mountains.

Price mentioned is for a group of 4 persons. For 2 persons supplement € 50 per person.
OPTION: book an extra ‘starting-package’ for € 90 p/p (when sharing a room; single room supplement € 30):
including 2x airport-transfer + 2 nights in a nice Riad hotel (one before and one after the trek)  in the old city center of Marrakech: Extra nights in Marrakech € 65 per night for a double room, € 45 for a single room.
Extra days in the mountains € 50 p/p (incl. lodging and all meals!)

  • Get a kick out of climbing the highest summit in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco.
  • Mount Toubkal – 4.167m./13.671 ft. or as the Arabic say Jebel Toubkal. For the Berber people living for ages in the lower valleys it is Adrar-n-Oudarn: thé mountain of the mountains.
  • It is the highest peak of North Africa and deserves respect in every way. The walk to the summit is rewarding and a little challenging.
  • You can make it to the summit and back in 3 days. However if you have some more time take it! For good acclimatisation to altitude and to enjoy the colorful Berber valleys our 6 day trekking is highly recommended

Day 1

Transfer to the mountains (ca. 1h30) to start your trekking. Your guide will pick you up at your hotel.
Trekking Imlil (1740m.) – refuge du Toubkal (3200m.).
Today it’s only going up. The path is clear and easy walking. You pass by the pilgrimage spot of Sidi Chamarouch. And then finally you will see the mountain hut.

Walking about 5 hrs. Overnight stay: Neltner Mountain hut ‘Refuge du Toubkal’. Altitude: 3.200m. / 10.499 ft.

Day 2

Refuge du Toubkal (3200m.) to the summit (4.167m. / 13.671 ft).

Today is the day. You will start very early in the morning (< 06h00) as this makes the chance for great views the best. In the beginning the path is steep. Later on it’s getting easier but then you will feel the altitude. Breath taking. Sometimes causing some headache or nausea. You can take some ‘paracetamol’ with you. And the most important advise: just walk slowly. It is the best way to acclimatize. Walking up to the summit takes about 4 hours. Going down to the hut ca. 2,5 hrs.

Walking ca. 6,5 hrs. Overnight stay: Neltner mountain hut ‘Refuge du Toubkal’. Altitude: 3.200m./ 10.499 ft.

For walkers with an ‘easy way of going down hill’ there is the possibility to go down upto Aremd (1.900m). Total walking ca. 8 to 10 hours!

Day 3

Descent to Imlil (1740m.) – transfer back to Marrakech. If you like you can make an extra climb in the morning to the high pass Tizi Ouanoums (3.685m.) for a nice view on mountain lake “Lac d’Ifni” , far below. Extra: about 2,5 hrs up and 1 hour down. Otherwise it will be just a relaxing day going down and enjoying your success of summiting the highest mountain of North Africa. In Imlil your transport is waiting to bring you back to Marrakech. Walking ca. 5 hours. Transfer 1h.15min.
