Go for the thrilling Toubkal Circuit Trek that combines a slew of beautiful panoramas, with the time to visit the Berber villages. Get immersed in everyday Berber life, watching the locals working in their terraced fields and tending to their animals, as you make your way up the Atlas mountains.

  • Camp near a river at Tacheddirt
  • Marvel at the view of Toubkal Massif
  • Trek to the height of 4,167mts at the summit of Mt. Toubkal
  • Day 1: Marrakech, Imlil & Tacheddirt expand_more
    • Depart from Marrakech after a good breakfast and drive to Imlil via Asni. Imlil is the principal trailhead for walkers and a busy market town.

    • Meet your mule team and once all the gear is loaded, begin walking along the valley towards Tacheddirt, 8kms beyond Imlil.

    •  Start a slight climb as the trail starts to rise all the way up to the pass at Tizi n Tamatert (2,279m).

    • Descend to the pretty village of Ouaneskra and continue further to Tacheddirt (3,000m).

    Camp near the river.

  • Day 2: Azib Likemt expand_more
    • Cross the valley and begin a long and slow ascent to the pass at Tizi Likemt (3,555m). Today's trek is quite tough as there is a considerable amount of loose scree on the ground.

    • As you reach the top, enjoy your first fine view of the Toubkal massif before a long downhill descent to the village of Azib Likemt, where you camp for the night.

  • Day 3: Tizi n'Oughri & Amsouzart expand_more
    • Embark on a long, but relatively easy trek that takes you through a variety of contrasting landscapes.

    • From Tizi n Touraine (3,120m), enjoy further views of the Toubkal massif, including the summit, the east face and the Ifni Dome (3,876m).

    • Start on the trail that leads on towards Amsouzert, one of the most striking villages in the region, where you spend the night – dormitory-style, in a simple village Gite.

  • Day 4: Ifni Lake expand_more
    • Traverse through several small villages on your route towards Ifni Lake, the only lake in the massif. The lake is a memorable sight, surrounded by rocky mountains and giant heaps of rubble, its depth enhancing the experience.

    • Arrive by lunchtime and spend the afternoon relaxing at the shore. Set up your camp there.

  • Day 5: Tizi n'Ouanoums & Nelter Hut expand_more
    • Make your way along a steep path, that leads up to a seemingly endless scree slope. At length, you reach the pass at Tizi n'Ouanoums (3,664m), a narrow ledge between two shafts of rock.
    • Descend to Nelter Hut, a mountain refuge where you'll spend the night, along a zig-zag trail. You can opt to camp outside, taking in the eclectic atmosphere.

  • Day 6: Mt. Toubkal Summit expand_more
    • Leave before dawn, following a well-worn route to the summit. If conditions are good it should take no more than 2-3 hours to reach the summit.

    • Enjoy the expansive views of the entire Atlas range and the Marrakech plains.

    • Return to base and descend rapidly to the villages of Sidi Chamharouch and Armed, before following the Mizane River, along a well-forested trail, to the trailhead at Imlil.

    • If you are staying in Marrakech, you will be taken there by car at the end of the day.
