Description

Come with me on this 7-day program and enjoy splitboarding down Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa!

With its 4,167 meters above sea level, Mount Toubkal is the tallest summit in the Atlas Mountains and North Africa. It is located in the Toubkal National Park, in Morocco, and it is a very popular destination for mountaineers around the globe. During the winter, it is the ideal place to enjoy different types of snow activities.

To explore this area and discover this amazing peak, I offer you this 7-day splitboarding program.

First, we will meet at the Marrakech airport and transfer you to Imlil. Then, on the first days of the program, we will have acclimatization ascents in different peaks around the area and enjoy splitboarding. Finally, we will reach the summit of Mount Toubkal. You will get to see the incredible views before going down the mountain. On the last day, we will return to Marrakesh and have a day to explore the city before we drive you to the airport and say goodbye.

For a more detailed description of the activities of each day, take a look at the bottom of the page

Please, take into account that this program is challenging. Consequently, prior splitboarding experience, as well as a very good physical condition, are required.

Interested in this splitboarding adventure? Send your request and book this trip now. I can assure you it will be an unforgettable experience.

If splitboarding is your activity, take a look at these programs in Mont Blanc and Chamonix. I will be happy to guide you there too.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
