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.
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..
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!
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!
Highly recommended 🙂 Dave was a great guide, super fun and a good photographer too, capturing all the best bits of our expedition.
The best rock climbing instruction I’ve ever had. Extremely clear and engaging.
I just wanted to add that the quality of instruction was actually more than excellent! I learned loads of things that were very empowering and challenging, while always feeling very safe and in a friendly atmosphere. I had a lot of fun and really enjoyed my day. Many thanks to Dave!
I will happily tell all my friends that it is one of the best things I have ever had the good fortune to do.
Dave, was excellent. He manages to combine an inspirational passion for climbing with very knowledgeable advice and instruction and an unerring eye for safety.
It has been an amazing experience. A gigantic sincere Thank you to Dave for his care, effort and lovely sense of humor! He made us really happy.
Just wanted to pass on my thanks for a fantastic abseiling service from you guys yesterday. The feedback from all was what a professional and warmhearted company you are and even the very fearful felt safe and cared for and thanked you for your patience and reassurance.
It would be an understatement to say the Abberley Hall Clock Tower Abseil event exceeded my expectations.
