Overview

Welcome to the land of the High Atlas Berbers! In this seven-day tour you will explore the most attractive valleys of Toubkal National Park together with the life style of the Berbers! This tour is perfect for all mountain lovers who want to spend a week far away from civilization, visit remote ancient villages and enjoy the well-known hospitality of mountain people. We will camp at the turquoise lagoon of Lake Ifni and optionally conclude the trek with an ascent of Jebel Toubkal, the highest peak of North Africa.
