Toubkal Itinerary

24-01-23

Toubkal-11-scaled

While we try and stick to the tried and tested itinerary below, the mountain, the accommodation availability and the weather sometimes has other ideas. We will always remain as flexible as possible to make sure we can change any plans if required.

For more information on your trip please head back to our website here. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to us here.

We look forward to getting you out on our Toubkal adventure.

DAY 1:

Arrival Day in Marrakech

Fly to Marrakech and meet the local Adventure Base team at the airport. Pick up from the airport in Marrakech at 16:00 and transfer straight to Imlil (1hr15mins). If you arrive early or late and wish to have your own transfer we can arrange that for an additional cost. Spend the night at Imlil Lodge with a delicious dinner, meet your guides and get ready to head into the mountains tomorrow morning.

 

DAY 2:

Approach the Toubkal Base Camp (3206m)

After breakfast we begin our trek. Heading along the Mizane Valley, we pass the village of Aremd and then onto the shrine of Sidi Chamarouch. Our route takes us along mule tracks and up into the high rocky cliffs above the valley. Crossing the river we eventually come to the pastoral shrine of Sidi Chamarouch, which attracts tourists and pilgrims. From here the trail continues to climb steadily, snaking and zigzagging its way up to the refuge (3206m) where we will have a hearty dinner before spending the night.

12km / 1450m up / 0m down / 6-8hrs

 

DAY 3:

Summit Day

Early in the morning we make our attempt on the summit of Toubkal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. Our route takes us up the south cirque, crossing the stream above the refuge. The walking is relatively straightforward, but the scree and the altitude will make the going quite difficult in parts. The views along the way make the journey more than worthwhile. When you reach the summit you will see that the vistas across the surrounding landscape are quite breathtaking. From here there are unrestricted views in every direction, from the Marrakech Plain to the High Atlas in the north and as far south as the Anti-Atlas and the Sahara. We will retrace our steps when we return down the mountain and spend the night at Base Camp.

8km / 1150m up / 1150m down / 6-7hrs

 

DAY 4:

Marrakech!

Today we head back towards Imlil and say goodbye to our wonderful guide team over a traditional cup of Moroccan tea and lunch. After lunch we transfer back to Marrakech (1hr15mins). We arrive in time for a wonder around the souks before our last dinner together in the Medina. Spend the night at a Riad in Marrakech.

12km / 0m up / 1450m down / 4-5hrs

 

DAY 5:

Departure Day

After a well deserved nights’ sleep in the Riad, its time for one last breakfast before the trip ends and you make your journey home. We arrange for one group transfer to the airport based on the flight times of the group. If anyone wants their own transfer it can be arranged for an additional cost.
