Your itinerary:

Day 1 – Marrakech – Imlil – Toubkal Refuge
After an early breakfast in your accommodation in Marrakech you’ll head out on the 2 hour drive to the small village of Imlil. You’ll meet up with your guide and mules there, load up and set off on the 5-6 hour trek to the small refuge below the summit. The tracks are quite steep and narrow in places. You’ll continue climbing through these remote mountains and over several passes before arriving at the refuge where you’ll spend the night, enjoying Berber hospitality. Accommodation: Les Mouflons – Toubkal Refuge

Day 2 – Toubkal Refuge – Toubkal Summit – Imlil – Marrakech
After a very early breakfast you will set off to climb the highest peak in the Maghreb. You will reach the summit as the sun rises, rewarding you with amazing views. You won’t encounter any major difficulties during the ascent as the final peak of Toubkal is broad and there is a gradual decline when approaching the summit. You’ll marvel at the high cliffs that plunge into the opposite of the Ifni Lake. After descending from the highest point in North Africa, back down to Imlil you will meet your transport to return to Marrakech.

A 3 day itinerary can be provided upon enquiry.
