6 days trek “High Atlas Trek Crowned by Toubkal Summit Ascend”

Duration: 6 days

Difficulty: medium

Would you like to climb Jebel Toubkal but rather not straight off? Then this might be the perfect trek for you.

With a slow start through the picturesque Berber villages your body will naturally acclimatize to the altitude. Colourful landscape will change from day to day and so will your physical condition. Gradually you will not focus on the altitude any more but instead the Berber villages and traditions will capture your entire attention. Once we reach the turquoise lagoon of Lake Ifni you will feel completely ready to conquer the highest peak of North Africa in the next two days!

During the entire tour you will be accompanied by a licensed and experienced guide and his local mountain support team which will take care of your luggage and catering. The tour is technically not difficult, but you should be a little bit fit and be familiar with walking cross-country. Good trekking shoes and an outdoor jacket are highly recommended in any season of the year. Check the section What to pack for more information on recommended equipment.

We will spend nights in the simple but atmospheric mountain refugees (or alternatively tents if preffered), and have lunch or tea at local Berber places.
