Mt Toubkal is a mountain peak in South Wstern Morocco, located in the Toubkal National Park.  At 4,167 metres, it is the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains and in North Africa.

On this superb expedition, we’ll aim to summit four 4000 meter peaks, including Mt Toubkal. We’ll explore the stunning city of Marrakesh and journey through the foot hills of the mountains. We’ll also get a lively night out in the Marrakesh at the end of the trip. This is much more than you’re average Toubkal trip.

TOUBKAL EXPEDITION OVERVIEW

This 6 day guided trip is suitable for anyone with some mountain walking / scrambling experience.  This is more than just a Toubkal trip, we will aim to get you to the summit of four 4000 metre peaks. The peaks we will try to climb are Toubkal 4167m, Toubkal West 4030m, Ras 4083m and Timezguida 4089m – taking the total of peaks to four. The national park is stunning and the expedition can be run in summer or winter conditions depending on what you would prefer.

The peaks here are a perfect introduction to higher mountain summits-  being just over 4000 metres in height. The summits themselves aren’t technical but involve some moderate scrambling – similar to that of Crib Goch in Snowdonia or Striding Edge in the Lake District.

If you’re on a winter expedition, then crampons and ice axes will be carried and full training will be given on their use. You can use this expedition as an introduction to winter mountaineering. If you haven’t got crampons and an ice axe of your own, these can be hired at a small additional cost.

Porters will carry your heavy bags to the hut from Imlil – making your ascent that much easier and more enjoyable. This is included in the cost of the expedition.

TOUBKAL EXPEDITION ITINERARY

Day 1: Meet at Marrakesh airport for 2 pm and then take a transfer to Imlil. Around a 1.5 hour drive through stunning scenery takes us to the small mountain village of Imlil. From Imlil, we walk to Armed and check into our hotel and sort kit for the following few days on the mountain. That evening we have a group meal all together.

Day 2: An early start sees us packing our bags onto donkeys and porters, then taking the spectacular trekking path through the foothills of the mountains and up to the hut at 3200 metres. There are plenty of stops on this day at the snack huts on the way up and there are plenty of great photo opportunities.

Day 3: Summit day. Weather depending we will head for the summit of Toubkal 4167 m. If time and fitness allows, there is the chance of bagging another peak Toubkal West 4030m.

Day 4: Another summiting day. Depending on what we have done on the previous day then we will go for the 4000 metre peaks of Ras 4083m and Timezguida 4089m taking our 4000 metre peak total to four!!

Day 5: We head back down the valley to the town of Imlil from where we get a transfer to Marrakesh. The huge market town of Marrakesh is a site to behold and we can enjoy a fun and lively night out.

Day 6: We head back to the airport and head off home or you can stay longer in Marrakesh – if you like.

Please Note: Every effort will be made to adhere to the above itinerary, but as this is adventure travel in a remote mountain region, we cannot guarantee everything. Weather conditions, road conditions, vehicle breakdowns and the health of trekkers can all affect the plan. Your guide and our local team will do their best to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, and cheerfulness in the face of adversity is an asset in the mountains.

Extra days can be added at the start or the end of the trip should you wish to spend more time in Marrakesh or journeying around Morocco.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY

What an epic day. Dave gave us an amazing day on Wintours leap. We covered more than I could have hoped. Dave understood exactly what our objectives of the day were, excellent value for money. Dave was the most professional, and clearly knew his stuff.

Mr W Portal

Dave and his team hosted Noah’s Ark Charity Dangle event Sunday 16th October 2016 from Newport Transporter Bridge and we couldn’t have picked a better team of instructors to help us..

Noahs Ark Charity

All of the guides were extremely supportive and had the groups best interest at the forefront of everything we did, they were also very knowledgeable about the mountains and what lay ahead of us. This is the first time we have used Dave but definitely not the last!

CC Projects

Dave and Robyn guided a group of us to four 4000+m peaks in the Atlas Mountains, including Toubkal – the highest in North Africa. They were always full of energy and continually kept the team motivated. You were never in doubt that they were fully prepared for all eventualities, using ropes when required and even having a foam roller for those of us with tight muscles! On top of this, they were always teaching us important mountain skills, with demonstrations and giving everyone the chance to practice these skills in a safe and fun but relevant environment. I also thought they were excellent at tailoring the experience to different peoples wants and needs.

Without a doubt my favourite adventure holiday of the year – i’m already looking to book another one with Dave in the New year!

E. Thomson
