Loved the trip and Marc was fantastic. Would highly recommend

Toubkal trail running weekend in Atlas Mountains

Amazing three days spent running in the Atlas Mountains with Marc, a highly professional and super friendly guide. We passed through Berber villages where we stopped off for tea and took in 35-30kms most days in amazing conditions. Can't wait for my next trip!


There are many reasons for choosing Mountain Climbing in Morocco

The Atlas and Rif mountains are strikingly similar to the mountains in California. In the north of the country, think forests cover the mountain slopes, providing incredible views into surprisingly verdant valleys. Farther south, the mountains become more arid and climbers will get stunning views out into the Sahara Desert. Regardless, stunning scenery awaits all throughout Morocco’s mountains.

During the summer months, the average daily temperature in the Moroccan mountains is between 15 ºC and 20 ºC. These temperatures decrease at night and with elevation. During the winter, temperatures are around freezing in the mountains. The country gets some rain throughout the year, but never too much at any one time. Snow does fall in the mountains in the winter

More info about Mountain Climbing in Morocco:

Morocco is a mostly mountainous country, which is unique for Africa, and boasts two major mountain ranges. The Rif Mountains run from the northeast to the northwest of the country, while the Atlas Mountains run down the spine of the country. For climbing enthusiasts, Mount Tidighin (2,456 meters) is a popular spot. The peak is the highest in the range and provides stunning panoramic views out over the rest of the mountain range. Within the Atlas Mountains, there are plenty of other peaks, aside from Toubkal, to climb as well. M’Goun, Afella and Akioud are the only other 4,000 meter high peaks in the country. Spread throughout the Atlas Range, each one offers a slightly different mountaineering challenge
