What you'll do

Toubkal Peak stands as the towering pinnacle of North Africa, reaching an impressive elevation of 4,167 meters. This majestic peak presents a wonderful climbing opportunity, perfectly suited for moderately experienced hikers looking to embark on an adventure. Achievable within a span of just 2 days, the journey to the summit of Toubkal is not only accessible but also deeply rewarding. As hikers ascend, they are treated to an expansive array of spectacular views that encapsulate the raw beauty of the Atlas Mountains. The trail winds through varied landscapes, offering glimpses of the region's rich natural diversity and cultural heritage, making the climb a truly unforgettable experience.


Itinerary

Upon arriving at Marrakech airport or in the city center, you'll embark on a 1 hour and 40-minute journey to the Atlas Mountains. Settle into a charming local guest house where you will be treated to dinner and breakfast. Following dinner, there will be a briefing session to prepare you for the upcoming trek.
Enjoy breakfast at 8:00 am and commence your hike at 9:00 am. Your journey will take you through several villages along the Toubkal river. A midday break for lunch will be arranged at the halfway point. The hike is expected to be relatively easygoing and consistent. You'll reach the Toubkal refuge by approximately 3:30 pm, where you'll have some free time to unwind. Later, take a break with some refreshing mint tea and attend a briefing session to prepare for the upcoming ascent.
Rise early for breakfast at 4:30 am, setting out at 5:00 am for the ascent. The climb covers roughly 900 meters from the refuge to the summit, presenting a steeper challenge compared to the first day, yet follows a zigzagging path to the top. Once at the summit, take a delightful break to soak in the panoramic 360° views of the Atlas Mountains' ridges. Following the summit experience, we will descend back to the refuge for lunch and then continue to Imlil. The day's trek will last between 7 to 10 hours.
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before departing for Marrakech from Imlil at 10 am. The drive to Marrakech will last approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours. Upon arrival in Marrakech, you'll have the option to be dropped off either at the airport or in the city center. Should you be heading to the airport, you are scheduled to arrive around 12 pm.
