Day 1: Casablanca - Marrakech

Welcome to Morocco and the start of your journey through the land of the berbers! Upon arrival you'll be met and transferred to your hotel in the centre of Marrakech. This evening there will be a welcome briefing on the upcoming trip, after which you’re free to explore the delights of Djemaa el Fna, the exuberant market place, which literally comes alive at night.

Day 2: Marrakech - High Atlas

This morning we head out of the city and ascend by car to the High Atlas mountain to the small rural commune of Oukaimden. Arriving here, meet the mule team who await to load up and begin the journey, we then hike over our first pass to the village of Taccheddirt where you will stay the night in a trekkers lodge.

Day 3: High Atlas

Today we start the day's trekking to the pass of Tizi-n'Tametert where we can look down into the deep gorge of the Imanane valley. Continuing on we trek to Imlil (1740m) in the beautiful Mizane Valley. This is one of the most verdant valleys in the High Atlas and the region’s fertile valleys support a thriving agricultural community. From Imlil we continue the trek to the Berber village of Aroumd where we stay for the night.

Day 4: High Atlas

Today we trek and ascend into the foothills of Toubkal to Sidi Chamarouch and from there onwards and upwards to the base camp at Neltner where we stay for the night.

Day 5: High Atlas - Marrakech

Early this morning our climb to the summit of Toubkal takes around four hours from the Neltner base. The initial part of the climb is done in the very early hours of the morning when it will still be dark, but by the time we reach the Tizi-n-Toubkal col at 3941m the sun will have risen and we will be rewarded with sensational views across the entire Atlas chain. From the col the route ascends a ridge line towards the summit at 4167m from where we have views in all directions. After a long rest and numerous summit photographs we begin our descent back to Imlil village and then onwards to Marrakech.

Days 6-7: Marrakech

The next two days are free for you to explore Marrakech independently.

Day 8: Marrakech

After breakfast and hotel check out we will transfer you to the airport in time for your onward departure flight.
