This trek is highly recommended as it offers an excellent opportunity to experience the Berber way of life, to visit the only lake in the High Atlas and to climb the highest mountain in North Africa. The walking is at times demanding but the high passes we cross help to acclimatise and improve fitness before the ascent of Toubkal. The scenery is among the best in the Atlas range.

If you have limited time it is possible to combine Days 6 and 7 and to return to Marrakech at the end of Day 6.

Trek Code: TREK B
Trek Duration: 7 days / 6 nights or 6 days / 5 nights

Trek Duration: 5 Days / 4 nights

This is recommended for inexperienced trekkers with limited time who want to experience the Berber way of life and the magnificent Atlas scenery without too demanding walking.

Trek Code: TREK H
Trek Duration: 3 days / 2 nights

This is a demanding, intensive climb – from Imlil (1740m) to the summit of Toubkal (4167m) and back in two days. Because there is little time to acclimatise, there is the risk of altitude sickness. However, it is a good option for those with very little time and a reasonable level of fitness.
