Winter trekking holiday to the summit of North Africa`s highest peak Toubkal (4167m) in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco
Mount Toubkal (4167m) in the High Atlas Mountains, is not only Morocco's highest peak, but the highest summit in North Africa and this incredible range provides some of the most spectacular winter trekking on earth! With its traditional villages, friendly Berber, awesome trails and jaw dropping mountains, this dramatic and beautiful area takes on a magical appearance in winter. A mere two hours drive from vibrant Marrakech, the high valleys of the Berbers are at their most beautiful during this season. Our well established itinerary is a long standing best seller, due to the excellent Moroccan leaders and experienced team we work with. A day's acclimatisation hike above the village of Aroumd, ensures everyone is fully prepared before trekking to the refuge (3207m), Toubkal's base camp at the head of the valley. From here we attempt two exciting summits, Ouanoukrim (4088m), Morocco's second highest peak and Toubkal (4167m), the highest mountain in North Africa.
From the top of both summits we are rewarded with spectacular views plus a real sense of achievement and adventure. On the top of Toubkal stunning panoramas extend across the rocky Atlas ranges and southwards to Jebel Sahro and the Sahara Desert. This is a fantastic winter walking holiday in the mountains combined with Marrakech, Morocco's most colouful city.
A Genuine Small Group Experience - The Secret of Our Success on Winter Toubkal
We are proud to say this holiday in Morocco is limited to a maximum group size of 10, ensuring we leave only our footprints on the trails whilst enjoying a genuine small group adventure. We've been taking our clients walking, trekking and mountaineering for almost thirty years so we know the ingredients of a good guide and a successful group adventure. On our Toubkal treks, the mountain is neither particularly high nor technically demanding, but the experience and knowledge of our Moroccan leaders, teamed with a smaller group size, can make a big difference to your chances of success on summit day. Those who are new to winter mountaineering will take particular comfort in the presence of our experienced Moroccan guides, who we believe are the best in the business. Our Toubkal in Winter remains one of the best selling holidays in the business due to our fantastic local team.
