Description

Mount Toubkal, near the Mount Mgoun in the High Atlas Moroccan mountains, is one of the best places for the hiking practice in Europe, outside The Alps.

During summertime, Mount Toubkal offers an excellent trekking option with the addition of a different cultural and culinary experience. They will be 4 or 5 days of hiking among the beautiful landscapes of Morocco. As your guide, I can guarantee the following services:

  • The best Moroccan recipes mixed with Western foods that you will love

  • Very comfortable rural huts 

  • Mules that will help you to make the journey lighter

  • Complete service of guiding specialized in summer trekking

  • Transfer to and from Marrakech

Mount Toubkal will surprise you. You will find many different trails in the system of surrounding valleys. The itinerary I am proposing consists in a 3-day hike in at least two of those valleys. But, in case you are interested in getting to Mount Toukbal summit I suggest to extend the trip 2 more days in order to be well acclimatized.

Here you can see the details of each day. It’s just an estimate program. Remember I can plan a customized trip adapted to your own wishes.

DAY 1

A taxi or minibus will take us from Marrakech to Imlil where we will start the trekking trail at 1.740 meters. It will be a 4-to-7-hike in The Tacheddirt Valley.

DAY 2

Today we will walk from the mountain pass of Tizi n’Tamatert to the valley of Mizane. After 7 or 8 hours, we will be finally in the hut of Toubkal at 3.200 meters of height.

DAY 3

Time to climb to the summit of Mount Toubkal! We will reach to 4.167 meters high and it will take about 6-7 hours.

DAY 4

We will take the Tadat Col o Aguelzim Pass and walk across the Bou Idaren Valley until we arrive to Tamsoult Hut.

DAY 5

Last day! We will enjoy a lunch in Imlil after an amazing traverse in the pass of Tizi Mzzik at 2.450 meters.

I don’t want you to have any doubt about this beautiful hike in Mount Toubkal, so then I also leave at your disposal, all the prices of this trip. The group size cannot exceed 8 participants.

3-day hike: 385 £ (2 p) – £ 310 (3-4 p) – £ 220 (5-6 p) – 185 £ (7-8 p)

About the guide

I hold the Mountaineering Instructor Certificate (MIC) and I'm a keen summer and winter climber. Originally from California, I lived in Morocco for ten years, most recently in the High Atlas mountain village of Imlil, and I'm currently based in the UK. I come alive in the mountains and love my role as a climbing and mountaineering instructor and seeing people equipped for their own adventures.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
